    How do you rate our Opponents/Schedule?

    Since we play some decent teams here is one guessimate how tough they are to play against for us. Ignore the rankings and the fact that some games have not been played. Just have at it and tell us what you think. Here is one wag.

    1. Utah - their team had everything on all phases of the game.
    2. Okie - did not give us a chance to breath on the road
    3. Mizzou - tough defense expected to give us major trouble
    4. Nebby - looking like they are getting mojo going although injuries may hurt
    5. Texas - Cyclones effort beat four and five star players
    6. Iowa - well balanced team that made the plays at right time
    7. Texas Tech - looks like they are underachieving
    8. Kansas State - we blew this one, we were too conservative
    9. Colorado - Cody Hawkins once again back as qb after injuries
    10. Northern Illinois - expected MAC champions but not at JTS
    11. Kansas - sad times on offense for Turner
    12. UNI - offense was one dimensional but will win the MVC

    Let's see your ranking on how tough our opponents seem after watching the season unfold.

    Surprised that no Hawk fans are up and about today...

    Iowa = Texas in a bowl game would be interesting.

    I would have a really hard time putting Iowa at number 6 after we got routed in Iowa City. They are a pretty legit top 20 team. I know mizzou is playing really well but they arent the 3rd best team we play all year, I would swap them with Iowa, I would also put Kansas State ahead of Texas Tech.

    That's all the team should be worrying about. We as fans can talk about all games, past and present.
