    The Big 12 has 8 spots, but this year I'd be very, very shocked if we don't get 2 BCS bids making it 9 spots.

    ISU cannot go bowling
    KSU is losing to MU 10-0 and has games against NU and ISU to finish out the year. Unless they pull an upset they go 4-6.
    aTM is 4-6 with games left at Baylor and UT. No way they go bowling, even in a rivalry game I don't see them winning (then again, they've won the last 2 years as well)
    CU is 5-5 and we know who our next 2 games are against.


    If we go 6-6 and so does KSU I don't see a bowl picking KSU over us, especially since we beat them and since they have a lame duck HC (or is he gone already?)

    We just have to win 1/2 and we'll be in! But, **** it let's win out!

    Once again, the stupidest rule in the history of mankind will screw the Big 12 by only allowing 2 Big 12 teams to play in BCS bowls.

    Sorry for the pessimism, but I dont think that's going to come to fruition. If I had to pick which team I would prefer to beat I would pick the cornholers everyday and twice on Friday after Turkey Day. A win vs oSu would be huge especially if they beat TTech tonight, but I think we have a better shot vs kNu, and even that is a tall order.

    Sucks, but I think we are too one-sided right now.

    I hope the recruits enjoyed today's game any words?

    I'd like to see us go to a bowl game, but I don't see it happening. Especially with OSU and unl coming up.

    I would love to see us bowling, and if anything else get this young team an extra 3 weeks to practice, and couldn't hurt recruiting. But I pray I am wrong, but these last two games are going to get ugly.

    I just got home from the Husker game.

    First, it sounds like the Buffs put it all together today. Good job?

    Second, the Huskers are really getting things together compared to the beginning of the season. They really put some hurt on Kansas today.

    I don't see the Buffs winning the game against the Huskers this year in Lincoln. This really has been a crazy year for the B12 Conference.

    In about 2 weeks we will find out who wants it more, the Buffs or the Huskers!

    8 spots; 9 if we have 2 in BCS bowls. Here's how it stands now:

    Sy-clowns - down for the count
    Bears - cooked

    Buffs - record of 5-5. 2 games left, vs okie lite and at unl. Tough road to a bowl game.
    kJsu - record of 4-5 and losing to mizzery. 2 home games left; unl and isu. (outside chance at 6-6)
    aTm - record of 4-6. 2 road games at baylor and tejass. They're done for the year.

    Let's go, young Buffs. One more win to qualify.

    Bowl or not lets beat NU and get Hawks first .500 season at Colorado. Then we can say Hawks winning percentage has gotten better each year and we can still talk s*** to Neb. and CSewe.

    Correct before the bowl game. We finished the season 6-7. That's .462 not .500. :thumbsup:

    Unless we can somehow figure out how to score points, kick FG's, and defend a kickoff, we're done winning games for the season. We blew our best shot at a winning season by screwing the pooch in Collie Station.

    Need I remind you that we allowed ISU to drive 60 yards in 1:20 at the end of the game? Our defense isn't that good, either.
    :sad1:
