    *********** OFFICIAL REALITY CHECK THREAD ***********

    I need the credits for when I go all-in betting for Nebraska to win outright against ISU.

    Anyway, this thread is all about the reality check this is for us. Since the Texas Tech game, this forum was full of nothing but postings about how absolutely incredibly awesome our football team had become. Heck, the Top 25 was just around the corner for us. We were SURE for a Bowl game, just a matter of which one. Now maybe people can think more realistically for a change.

    Why do you say "us?" This is Cyclone Fanatic and I don't think I've ever seen you post anything not trolling.

    it's really amazing that we still think that a game like last week's is anything more than a fluke.

    really unbelievable how unprepared we must have been to give up 68 points (and that is actually conservative, because Utah could have scored a LOT more.)

    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    First of all, most people on this board don't think realistically. Second, I still think we can go to a bowl. We just ran into a top 10 team that was clicking on all cylinders and we were not. There is some talent on this ISU team. Just nowhere near the amount that the Utes have.

    I'm pretty confident speed is a priority for all teams. I doubt CPR is looking for uncoordinated slow moving athletes.

    We are good, not great. We have some really good players at certain positions, and are weak in others. We have some young players who will make great contributions before they're done. Utah is a very, very good team, and they played like it tonight.

    Seems like the same people talking bowl games last weekend will be saying we suck tonight. With this schedule. a .500 record for Coach Rhoads and this team will be a great accomplishment, and whether fans quit on them or not, this team will not quit. We'll have some great moments before this year is over.

    I said 3 or 4 wins this season so that's about right. I knew we'd be lucky to win one game in October.

    I concur, they were freaking big and fast, and did what they wanted to against us.

    I was 9 rows from the field and their D-Line looked small to me but they all looked fast.

    At the end of the first quarter, I was happy to have a lead.

    At the end of the second quarter, I was furious.

    By the third quarter, I reached the Chizik-era level of disappointment.

    I haven't been this frustrated by our team since the UNLV loss in 08. Maybe even Toledo 07.

    It's just one game. Football can change in a week. The Tech game was a big win, they beat Baylor today. Look at KU, beat GT who's only other loss this year is to NC State then a couple weeks later get drilled by 50+ to Baylor. You just can't predict football.
