    The Rest of the Year

    Schedule wise where are the wins?
    UNI-Beat ND St who beat KU.
    Utah-Beat Pitt who was pre ranked 15th
    Texas Tech- well see what theyre about tonight
    OU- Looked weak against AFA and Utah state, but dominated Florida St
    Texas-Well learn about them tonight as well
    KU- Could not be more bipolar, which KU team shows up. Its at home.
    Nebraska- Looked for real today.
    Colorado- Im pretty sure they lost at home to Hawaii today.
    Mizzou- No Washington, havent heard or seen much of em this year.

    I say best case scenario- Wins over UNI, Utah, KU, Colorado, Mizzou and i think that could be pushin dreaming. Im not an isu fan, im a neutral college football fan in ia.

    I say you are about right with your picks. But we'll have to wait and see.

    Re: The Rest of the Year

    this weekends game is a must win. no doubt. a win here and maybe a bowl game can be salvaged. a loss here and you can throw in the towel.

    Re: The Rest of the Year

    hi mi name is dmac and i win the first 4 games or better yet i win 6 straight games against cupcakes and im ranked #9 and i get blown out in the next 4 games straight because i have no vision of the season as a whole and i think beating cupcakes and only winning in september is important. DO YOU GET THIS? it is only september folks; rhoads teams get better as the season goes on; dmac teams get worse as season goes on. you will see magic yet this season. 5-6 wins guaranteed. maybe 4 with a few down to the wire. by the way. WE NOW HAVE A PUNTER; REAP THAT haters.

    Agree with most of those picks, but think Utah is a long shot...even at home! Going to be tough but I think that CPR can get the guys going in the right direction.

    Did you have too much coffee today? I think so.

    No one is hating, you are reading wrong.

    Re: The Rest of the Year

    wow, Utah is really, really good.

    They might be the best team we play. I think ppl are picking to win that game with their heart and not their head.

    False. Iowa, NU, OU, Texas are all better.

    Re: The Rest of the Year

    CU beat Hawaii 31-13 today.

    We're looking at 3-4 wins this year. Maybe wins against UNI and CU, and a big maybe against KU.

    Re: The Rest of the Year

    UNI, maybe Colorado although it is on the road and we rarely win road games, and maybe KU. 3 more realistically, 4 with an upset. Had to have the win today.

    God, I'm so depressed with the effort. I am thinking the unthinkable - 0 wins left on the schedule

    Re: The Rest of the Year

    utah is very good. i said BEST case sceanrio. if i was betting i would pick utah. upsets happen (last year vs Nebraska). waht if utah comes out and caughs it up 8 times? ya never know. I think OU, Nebraska and Texas all take ISU to the woodshed. But i think theyll dominate the big 12. OU has looked the worse of the 3 tho. but yes it is only september, but a solid opening to the season helps. look at iowa last year. lost 2 games late and still went to the orange bowl. it builds your confidence as well winniong against teams you know you should beat or can beat. K State was a game isu could have won today and that takes somethin out of a team losing games like this.
