  1. Re: A Radical Realignment Plan for College Football

    Agree. I've never thought it made sense for promotion-demotion unless a sports league/organization has enough roster consistency over a long span. Pre-free agency pro sports era, it could work. With...

    Re: New Uniforms?

    I've long liked the contrast of USC-UCLA game with the home jerseys.

    Purely out of curiosity, could anyone here photoshop an Iowa State-Iowa action photo with both teams in home jerseys?

    Re: New Uniforms?

    It looks like Pac-10 (12) rule was changed in 2009 to accommodate USC-UCLA tradition (unless there was another change since then):

    Re: Dick Vitale on the Mayor & ISU

    I read it that way, too.

    His voice comes through well early in the piece, not so much as it continues. It comes and goes. It's obviously augmented throughout. It's OK, I know Vitale isn't a...

    Re: New Uniforms?

    Yes!

    If there's no chance for gold helmets/gold pants on the road, I'd be fine with THIS and an all-white helmet-jersey-pants with the cardinal/gold stripes (for those who prefer the all-white...

    Re: New Uniforms?

    It's a good middle-ground. You're correct that it sets it apart just enough from the USC comparison, keeps the new identity/branding, and isn't some offshoot atrocity "just because it's possible."

    Re: Peterson: Cyclones won't finish ninth

    I'm still leaning 5-7/4-8, but his guesses look OK.

    Biggest doubt for me is Oklahoma State as a W on the road, but a loss at TCU, especially if he picks KSU to win because coaching staff hasn't...

    Re: Peterson: Cyclones won't finish ninth

    It's easy to forget several losses were so close, overshadowed by the humbling loss to UNI, and the beatdowns vs. BU, KSU, OSU & OU. (And Texas and TCU were crushing because they were so winnable).

    Re: Jameel McKay not granted waiver by NCAA

    Can we retroactively rescind a half-season of Staiger' s playing time and give it to McKay? :smile:

    I am willing to forfeit that Drake win when he actually scored a bunch.

    Peterson: Cyclones won't finish ninth

    Didn't see a link posted yet.

    He's more optimistic than many of us, record-wise:

    I've got news for you: Cyclones won't finish 9th

    Re: How would our 2nd team do in the big 12

    Don’t forget, the bench in this scenario comprises Dorsey-Walker, Tsalmpouris and Jackson. Fred could “coach it up,” but only so far.

    Best-case:
    W Oakland
    W Georgia State
    L CBE
    L CBE
    W Lamar...

    Re: How would our 2nd team do in the big 12

    Keep in mind, this is a starting lineup vs. every Big 12 team's *real* starting lineup.

    8th is probably the ceiling. Competitive ceiling, exciting at times, but still a ceiling.

    Re: Team A vs Team B

    Yes.

    Team A is also three-fifths of the actual 2013-14 starting lineup, plus Clyburn — not a bad framework.

    So you meant Team B, not A, correct?

    Re: How would our 2nd team do in the big 12

    I would expect roughly the same as Fred's first season as coach. Reliable returning unit with known talent; a few players we haven't seen in action for ISU; and almost no bench.
  16. Re: ISU projected game lines & % to win each game

    Yeah. But who knows, maybe this is the year.
  17. Re: ISU projected game lines & % to win each game

    Based on those lines, I would bet this way (my margin in parentheses — red ISU wins):
    ISU -7.5 vs ND St (7)
    ISU +5.5 vs KS ST (14)
    ISU +10.5 @ Iowa (13)
    ISU +23.5 vs Baylor (28)
    ISU +16.5 @ Ok...

    Re: Team A vs Team B

    I could have leaned toward Niang, it was close .. Not many of the advantage swings were absolute, that one seemed closest to a push.

    Straight-up advantage comparison by position:

    F - White (B)
    F - Niang/Ejim (Push)
