    TERMINAL BCS-LEAGUE UNDERACHIEVERS

    ESPN has made a list of underachievers in College FB. ISU made the list as a Terminal BCS-League Underacheiver.

    "Iowa State -- The league has been called the Big 6, Big 7, Big 8 and now the Big 12. By any name, the futility is the same: The Cyclones have never won it. And they've been trying since 1928."

    I'm just glad we made the list. Had we not, I guess that means we would have been overachieving???

    Well, at least they didn't call us the Iowa State hawkeyes. An improvement over other articles.

    Progress, I guess....

    That's what I keep thinking about the Chicago Cubs too but my team continue to leave me disappointed at the end of the season...

    Ah but it will happen! And if Chizik brings us to glory they will write songs about him. The clouds above Jack Trice will part and heavens trumpets will sound. OK ok not so much. But Ames would be in an uproar.
