    Do you think CPR is shooting for 1 out of the next 3? We need to set our sights a little higher because I'm sure the coaches and players do.

    Re: CPR #91

    Are we serious? A bowl game 2 out of ever 5 years is the expectation? I think CPR should be answering questions if that's the case.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Talk about low expectations. Until some fans get away from this attitude, ISU will never get respect from other schools fans.

    Re: CPR #91

    I expect to get to a bowl within the next two years if not next year. I know we have a tough schedule but at some point you have to start winning games you arent supposed to and transition to the role of the favorite.

    this year, or there really is no progress - a low level bowl = mediocre IMHO

    Re: CPR #91

    Hell, we were 1 play away from going to a bowl game again last year.
    Lower level bowl games should be the norm (norm = every year) and sneaking into mid-upper level bowl games every few years (few years = 3-4 and mid-upper level bowl = Alamo or better).
    That is where our program needs to be, at least for the time being.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    Actually, since that seems to be the fans' expectation, I think Rhoads would need to ASK some questions.

    For example:

    "You ******* serious, Clark?"

    No way is 2/5 what Rhoads is shooting for.

    Re: CPR #91

    I hate to be the the one with the defeatist attitude in the thread, but if you W and L the 9 conference games we now will play every year and add in the Hawk game, where are the wins coming from to get to an upper tier bowl? I get the attitude that we need to be upsetting some of these teams, and actually we have been, but it would take 2 or 3 major upsets every season as things stand now to get to a major bowl game.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Yep, and once you start winning those "major upsets" on a regular basis then they start to become "competitive games." It's called making improvement.
