    Is this season now a letdown if we don't get to a bowl?

    I didnt know if we had a shot before the season, but how the season has played out, it would be dissappointing.

    Yes. Because we proved that we deserve to win 6 games. Once again we fail to show up when it counts the most.

    I disagree with this. I don't know where we proved we deserved a bowl. We proved nothing, really, this season.

    At the beginning of the season, I would have been thrilled with 5 wins but when you go 5-4 and can't win one of your last 3 games, it has to be a letdown.

    Still one game to go though.

    False. We proved we had the ability to win 6 games. We don't deserve anything we don't achieve.

    We're just as deserving as quite a few other, especially big 12, teams that will go to bowls this year. Difference is we played Iowa and Utah in our noncon, and others played nobody.

    Re: Is this season now a letdown if we don't get to a bowl?

    No, not a disappointment. Who outside of Cyclone fans thought we would win 5 games?

    beat Texas and took Nebbie to the wire. This team has been out-manned all year. Games we won were because of great coaching, and gutsy team efforts.

    PS: we still have a win-able game.

    Yes, didn't expect it before week 1, but we stole 2 big games. If we did that we were going to a bowl....we're not going to, so we're not living up to expectations.

    Great season but we have to show the fortitude to compete week in, and week out. That said its hard to go to a rivals home turf and win after they just made a team changing adjustment like CO did. They were ****** about their embarassing loss and it's hard to plan for a new coach.

    Hope we ca trip up Mizzou.

    This season is not a success its a step back




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    The roller-coaster of emotions gets to be too much sometimes. I put this loss all on the coaches.

    Re: Is this season now a letdown if we don't get to a bowl?

    We have struggled winning at Colorado. Have for a while. I'm disappointed because we really had a chance to take a big step forward the last two games and didn't.

    Re: Is this season now a letdown if we don't get to a bowl?

    Yes, only because we would have put ourselves in great position with three games left to win one and become eligible.

    I had us for 5, 6, or 7 wins this year, so we will finish within my range. However, we were in position to do better and fell flat on our *****.
