    Re: Another site giving ISU no respect.

    Gotta be honest. Considering we're (likely) to be favored in 2 games in the preseason, this prediction isn't any less reasonable than a 3-9 or 4-8 prediction.

    I believe that this team will overachieve, but this prediction isn't disrespectful IMO.

    Show me the last time ISU only won 1 game. And what on paper gives KU a win over ISU?

    1997. And 1994 with zero wins. Not too many BCS teams can say they've had two seasons of 1 win or less in the past 20 years. Never mind 2008 and 2003 when we won just two games. Or '07, '98, '95, and '93 when we got just three wins. Our track record is less than stellar... we all should know that.

    What on paper says we'll win more than 2 games?!? Like I said a straight-up prediction at this point is probably 2-10. I'm guessing you're not predicting a 2-10 season for the Cyclones, right? So what makes this any less reasonable than your own prediction?

    CyDude16 is right.

    You doubled their site traffic by linking here. It's a nothing site than nobody has ever heard of. Why bother?

    Yep, we'll get respect when we earn it. And besides, when a site lists soccer ahead of Football, who cares. Judging by the site name, surprised it wasn't listed as football and american football.

    Re: Another site giving ISU no respect.

    Like it or not, when you go to one bowl game in the prior 4 years people don't respect you. Simply getting to a bowl game puts you just above mediocre, if that.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Look, my prediction this year is 6-6, but with our schedule a 4-8 is feasible. Our past history, and questions on both sides of the ball will impact which way our season will go. You can hardly be upset that UNI is the game we are favored in. Theres a lot of toss ups on our schedule. To each there own though.

    Re: Another site giving ISU no respect.






    That being said, respect is not given, it's earned, and the last time the media gave ISU respect overall was 2006, and ISU laid a 4-8 egg in McCarney's last season.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    Do we really need a thread for every nobody out there picking ISU to suck this year?

    Brilliant insight in that 20-word "preview". He must have needed to cut it short when his mom called him out of his room for dinner-time.

    Re: Another site giving ISU no respect.

    This is devastating. I am ashamed that other people think this way about a team I care about. My misplaced fan support for 18-22 year-old kids playing a game will probably ensure that I will never thrive, find a mate and reproduce. I've never felt so low in my life.

    Where do I turn in my cardinal and gold plates, and turn in my sheepskin and vacate my degree?

    I certainly don't think ISU will finish with one win, but I do think ISU will finish 3-9 or 4-8. That has more to do with the schedule than anything.

    Almost every schedule I've seen has ISU listed as having one of the top 10 toughest schedules in the country - and that schedule will be played by a team who lost their leading passer & rusher from last years team (and receiver? not sure who ISU's #1 WR was last year - I know losing Franklin will hurt). Maybe more damning is the fact that ISU may be starting a guy this fall who has never played a snap of FBS football in his career - so this depleted offense will be led by an inexperienced QB.

    Defensively, ISU lost arguably their biggest impact player on D last year in David Simms. I personally think the ISU defense will be better this year than last, but the DL still has little to no depth which will create a lot of problems for ISU in stopping teams rushing attacks and getting pressure on the opposing QB.

    I like Rhoads @ ISU. I think he is very KF like in that he knows how he wants his system to work and what kind of players he needs. I was actually pretty impressed by ISU's 2011 recruiting class (and Rhoads is off to a good recruiting start in 2012), and think that Rhoads has the blocks in place to put together a strong ISU tream in a couple years, but with this years schedule, and given what ISU lost last year (combined with a rookie at QB), I don't think 1-11 is entirely unreasonable - I think 3-9 or 4-8 is far more likely....actually, I think 5-7 is more likely than 1-11, but the reality is the guy that made this projection likely has little to no knowledge of the ISU team in 2011 and is solely going off the fact that they lost perhaps ISU's best 3 offensive players (not named Kelechi Osemele), plus maybe their best defender.
