As KU is just spectating during another bowl season I had a few random thoughts

All 3 service academies are bowl eligible and if you add Ga tech and New Mexico all 5 option offense teams in fbs are playing in a bowl

4 teams that are playing in bowl games this year were not even FBS teams the last time KU played in a bowl game (UTSA, APP ST, O. D., So Ala,) actually UTSA and South Alabama did not even have a football program yet, when KU last went to a bowl game

While the recruiting hotspots like Tx,Ca,FL,La and Oh have their share of college teams in bowls Id like to congratulate the staffs of Idaho, Wyoming, Hawaii and that other college in Kansas.

like KU, UCF was winless last year, but unlike KU, UCF will play in a bowl game this year

I can only imagine that if 2-22 gets an extension and double your salary that there are some other programs out there that are gonna have to shell out some large raises this year for staffs that have actually demonstrated improvement on the score board

and Lastly to NDSU who fell short last night going for their 6th straight NC but still 5 straight National Championships at any level is an amazing accomplishment

You have articulated my ideas of what we have endured at Kansas. Merry Xmas everyone!

why is north texas state in a bowl with a 5-7 record while TTU with a 5-7 record sits home?

teams that fail to qualify with the required 6 wins are ranked by APR (Academic Progress Rate) North texas had a APR of 984 TTU had APR of 940

side note: North texas was 1-11 last year and is playing in a bowl game with 1st year HC Seth Littrell who was a KU GA in 02-04 this may be as close as KU gets to a bowl game in the near future

Darn, too bad we didn't hire Littrell instead of Beaty, we would have been bowling this year. Right?

I wouldn't go that far, just pointing out a KU connection to an improving team as North Texas did have more FBS wins this year than KU has had in the last 4 years combined

My thoughts on the bowls is that most are not worth a crap to watch. Directional schools with 500 records. Rather see a 16 team playoff in the bowls.

That's a good question but we didn't have 5 wins so not sure it would apply to us.

What's up with the hostility? I was agreeing with you.
