The importance of going to a bowl is to get the extra 3 weeks of practice. For a team like K-State which is known for developing players rather than having 4/5* prospects, this is huge. Personally I think all teams should be able to practice until the last bowl game is played, but life isn't always fair.

So really, I don't care where the Cats roll, I'm more concerned with when the bowl is....the later the better so that gives CK and Co more time with the team to develop the next Big XII championship class.
More practice time for the current players
More airtime and publicity to help with recruiting in a warm weather state which are recruiting hot beds (TX or FL)
Being able to sell that your a bowl team to recruits in general is a huge positive
Chance to end the season with a win over a possible brand name (Notre Dame maybe?)
All things Nebraska bug shuckers won't be experiencing for the 3rd straight year :rofl:

every sport has it's risks. football is still the only collision sport. the rest, including hockey, are contact sports.

as for basketball? want to clean it up? don't let the kids wear pads.
Hockey is very much a collision sport. You don’t take as many hits but they are every bit as hard or harder then football.

Several prognosticators have us playing Texas A&M in the Texas Bowl. Ugh. I saw some others having us playing in the Cheezit Bowl. How do we drop to the Cheezit with an 8-4 record???

mauser, hockey is a contact sport. football is a collision sport. hitting on EVERY play in football. not 'so much' in hockey.
I'm not saying there aren't hard hits in hockey, just that by and large, they're not as violent as in football.

I wonder how big of lead Utah has on OU. Being biased here, but the big12 champ should jump them. 6 beating 7 or 7 beating 6 is more impressive than beating #13 Oregon. This would obviously help kstate

That's assuming Utah wins. Utah is only favored by 2.5 which is the smallest favorite of the P5 title games. If LSU and Oregon wins, OU is in. Gets tricky if Georgia wins, as they will want 2 SEC teams in, or if Utah wins, then its a head to head comparison between Utah and Oklahoma.

My statement was assuming Utah wins.

K-State rule. Give them a less prestigious bowl. They'll bring fans (and $) regardless.
