    How bad....

    Would we get beat by a team like Alabama? I would just like to play them and see what happens...I'm think the score would be 80-0 Bama if they didnt pull off the dogs.

    Come on... not 80. We are not so great, but there have been worse ISU teams in the past.

    we are not at a highly competitive level right now. Iowa could have scored 49 and held us to 0. That doesn't mean we wont win more game this year, however.

    We would shock the world and pull an upset 14-13.

    Iowa probably could have put up a lot more than that, and certainly could have shutout ISU for the first time in a loooooong time. Other, more offensively tuned teams might put up more (and might lean towards padding those stats and scores for the pollsters).

    If you guys can't find some sort of rhythm going on offense, and get in the groove defensively...it might get ugly once you hit Texas and Oklahoma.

    We'll find out when we play OU and Texas as they are on about the same level as Bama.

    I think ISU could cover 38+ because Bama would just run all day and eat time on the clock.

    Not a chance. Bama is better than last year and no way those two are better with losing their some of their greatest qb's in school history.
    Tide wins easy.

    Re: How bad....

    The thing bothering fans is neither side op the ball look to be dependable. The defense is weaker this year. The offense cannot even get 300 yards in offense.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, 3sus Naz, Dustin, Bryce, Abdel, Monte, Matt, and Jameel.

    I never said UT or OU would play Bama. I just said we would lose by about the same amount playing against the three teams. Yes, Bama is better than those two, but I think when you're playing a team like ISU, the outcomes would be relatively the same.

    Re: How bad....

    I figure that we would lose by a good 200 points. The NCAA would give us the Death Penalty for being an embarrassment to anything slightly resembling organized Pop Warner league play, and we would be relegated to the MVC (Missippi Valley Conference; high school) where we would be repeatedly embarrassed and form a rivalry with City High, just to have the Little Hawk boosters and fans whine and complain every year about how they have nothing to gain and everything to lose by playing us each year. This would then spark a media storm as CPR is found black-out drunk taking a test for AJ Klein in Psychology 101. CPR would be fired for gross misconduct, and we would spiral into oblivion where 10 years from now people are asking "Why didn't we just get CPR the help he needed? We were somewhat relevant when he was here, and now we don't even have 30 people showing up to our games!"
