    Re: Rivals Ranks ISU 88/119

    I could get counting us in the bottom tier of BCS teams (and the elite non-BCS teams), but what's with us being below a whole bunch of teams that aren't even among the best in their non-AQ conference?

    Like being behind UAB (at #86), which was 4-8 and 5th in Conference US East. We are not a great football team, but does Rivals really think we're worse than the dregs of Conference USA?

    That just tells me how important rankings like this really are.

    Seems like a pretty accurate assessment to me.

    Ugh, I just hope teams that play us next year believe this hype. If one of our qb's comes in next year as the clear starter, a lot of my worries will be erased.

    No respect for ISU. What's new?

    Which also means that Kansas is ahead of us. Really?!

    Really?

    A ranking having us in the bottom quarter of the Big 12 isn't anything we could really complain about until we prove otherwise. But a ranking in the bottom quarter of all FBS teams?

    I think you're both correct. The assessment/write-up sounds accurate, but the ranking is a joke.

    Okay, I can live with that. Good point.

    Re: Rivals Ranks ISU 88/119

    I have little stock in Rivals recruit rankings, and I think those are 10x better than their team rankings...

    However, it makes sense. We lost our 3 year starter at QB, our top RB, our leading receiver, and have holes to fill in our defensive secondary and line. Maybe it's still a bit low, but we have a lot of unproven players that need to step up to justify our own hype and expectations.

    We could 13-0 and have everyone returning and we'd still be ranked in the 80's every year. It's the level of respect we've earned, I guess.

    Re: Rivals Ranks ISU 88/119

    I think that Horne will be a starting receiver

    My money is on Lenz being the leading receiver.
