It's all but official, we're going bowling. The win over Idaho is huge and lets the Spartans focus solely on beating rival Fresno State without having to worry about impressing bowl officials. Sending Dennis Erickson to defeat was a nice bonus.

I hadn't previously considered this, but if we end up going to New Mexico, which is most likely, we'll have to play ... New Mexico. It's essentially a home game, which is a two-sided coin.

On one hand, it takes a lot of pressure off our administrators in that they won't have to worry about bribing 10,000 fans to make the trip to exciting Albuquerque. On the other, it sucks because there's no way 10,000 SJSU fans WANT to take that trip. I know I don't. This is obviously bad from a player's standpoint.

My hope is that somehow we're able to work something out where the New Mexico and Poinsettia bowls are able to work something out and trade. Don't know if this is possible, but I'll ask good ol' Jon Wilner and see if he has an answer.

Anyway, it's worth feeling good about today's win.
