  1. We are bowl eligible.2. We have a winning record in bowl appearances under Mangino.3. We won the Orange Bowl last year.4. We are in the most competitive conference of 2008.5. German barmaids know nothing of American football.We will go to a bowl. It might be the Metamucil Bowl, but we'll go. They'll match us with the Upper Peninsula College of Mining and Husbandry, and we'll win. That's my prediction.

Thank you for saying it first BossaNova. This Teutonic hottie is correct. They unfortunately don't have the huevos to hang with the big boys this year. Will lose today. Will lose to Missouri. Very sad but very true. Offensive line is poorer than last year and the defensive secondary is young and subpar. No bowling. Not even a type bowl. On a brighter note, I have to go to 23rd St. more often

Well, they are already a lock for a bowl. They are bowl eligible, and the Big XII Conference has 8 ti-ins to bowls. The Big XII Converence will NOT have eight bowl eligible teams. Therefore, KU will get an invitation. It's a moot question. The rule about picking a 7-5 team before a 6-6 team doesn't begin until all the confernce's bowl spots are filled.

Doesn't matter if 'Hawks lose next two games, they're already qualified with 6 wins. What's more, our fans travel well and we have a high powered, pass happy offense with a name recognized QB. Those are all attractive qualities for bowl committees. There is no doubt they'll be in a bowl, I'd bet a huge sum of money on it, and the folks on here saying they have no chance have no clue or just don't know football.

The first complete bowl projection list I saw has us at bowl in Phoenix on 12/31...

I think we are going. Bowl people say we will not fill out allotment of bowl games with eligible teams. so at 6-6 (assuming we lose to MU) we shoudl still go to a lessor bowl. At least I hope. First time back to back would be nice.
