    What if Baylor & ISU switched Scheudles?

    I donít know if this has been posted in a thread and I know you canít do this but what if Baylor and ISU had traded schedules Ė would ISU be ranked and Baylor not?
    Baylorís record is 7-2 with losses to TCU and TT. ISU would have the same record if we played : Sam Houston State (AA) 4-4, KU 2-6, UT 4-4, Buffalo 2-6, TT 4-4, TCU 9-0, CU 3-5, Rice 2-6, KSU 5-3 Ė Opponents Overall Record = 35-38.
    I know ISU has one of the toughest schedules in the nation and it shows - ISUís opponents Overall Record = 48-25. I guess what it comes down to is it wouldnít matter who had a 7-2 record against that competition they probably should not be ranked.

    Kind of shows you why we should not be playing non-conference games against Utah, UCONN or any other decent teams not named Iowa. Thank god we got out of the Utah game next year.

    Re: What if Baylor & ISU switched Scheudles?

    The back half of the schedule is much tougher for Baylor. They probably finish 8-4 and are either barely in the top 25 or just out of it, so I wouldn't sweat it too much. Besides, let Baylor celebrate a little, they're usually worse than us.
