If they get stuck with that game(which I dont doubt) then I DO doubt that it gets played since they never play those bowl games that are "beneath" them. Ironic, I know

I wonder if they really think Michigan would get the higher bowl or the Capital One Bowl would pass on taking the Huskers for a third straight year.

 

Huskers / A&M would be an intriguing matchup.

Especially with a Big 12 officiating crew. Who would they try to screw over? :lol:

Found this while looking at where we've been:

 

 

 

Huskers Bowl-by-Bowl

  • Orange - 17
  • Fiesta - 6
  • Sugar - 4
  • Cotton - 4
  • Alamo - 3
  • Holiday - 3
  • Rose - 2
  • Sun - 2
  • Capital One - 2
  • Independence - 1
  • Citrus - 1
  • Liberty - 1
  • Astro-Bluebonnet - 1
  • Gator - 1
  • Gotham - 1

I'm sure no one is surprised that the Orange bowl has the huge lead. But I'm impressed that the top four are Orange, Fiesta, Sugar and Cotton. Pretty impressive that the bowls we've been to the most are some of the "best" bowls. Been to almost as many Orange Bowls as the remaining bowls (after the top four) combined.

TV execs and ticket brokers must be salivating at that!

As with prior years, I hope the B1G does not get a second team in the BCS (CBS has SCar vs Wisc). SCar is a top 10ish team vs and 20ish Wisc. Then the bad parings trickle down to the other bowls (unranked B1G vs Top 15 SEC in Cap One, Outback) The Big has had too many of these mismatches over the past years and gets blasted in the media for its bowl performance. With 10 BCS spots to fill I think they should go to:

 

SEC (2 Bama and other)

PAC (2 Oregon and Stanford)

ACC (2 Clemson and FSU)

AAC (1 whoever)

B12 (2 Baylor and OU/OSU)

B10 (1 OSU)

 

If B12 doesn't get 2 then should be filled by NIU or Fresno if they meet the requirements.

I don't think that South Carolina is as good as most people think they are. I would love to see Wisconsin go up against them. I will take as many B1G teams in the premier bowls as I can get.

Plus I want to see if Anderson would abandon what works like Bielema did during bowl games

So, let's say we win out, are they saying the best a team from our division can do is be #3 in the conference thus playing Georgia in the Outback bowl?

 

 

Assuming every other team wins out unless they're facing Nebraska, you win out, you're going to the Rose Bowl. Because you'll have beaten Michigan State, thus have the tie breaker agaisnt them for representation to the conference championship, then you'll have beaten Ohio State to win the B1G and automatically get a bid to the Rose Bowl.

Well......I should have said win out regular season but not beat OSU in the CCG. BUT....I like your option better chuckleshuffle

Updated: Michigan going to the gator bowl again to play vandyy

 

If that's so, not surprised, even when semi crap we get a New years day bowl for the sake of the $integrity$ of the sport. Then again who wants to watch freaking Northern Illinois or other ridiculously ranked outcasts.

 

Now if we loose to Vandy for the first time ever, I do want Hoke gone, that would be some real Rich Rodriguez sh#t there.

we should be going to the pizza pizza bowl. it would be a better turnout. I will not be making the trip to Tampa.

 

its going to be a chain reaction event. Hoke doesn't fire Al then he goes down with him taking Brandon out also. If no changes are made in 2014 on offense we get an entire new staff in 2015. Sucks though hate to lose Mattison.

Yea from Hoke's first year I was thinking Mattison was behind their success, and the defense is still pretty good, but the Offense, man, it lacks any direction whatsoever, someone also F'd with Gardner's head on what he is supposed be doing out there, there is just little reason for him to be decent for 6 games and then puff, he's throwing loads of interceptions and cant decide if he should use he's talent to run the ball or not. He's not a pro qb and they tried to make him one. Anyway agreed O coordinator just has to go, the blocking is atrocious, but I could go on.

 

And yes the Pizza Pizza bowl is like half hour from me, not heading to Florida for this either.
