    ISU is the lowest ranked BCS school

    107 out of 119 from collegefootballnews.com. I don't think that we were ranked this low even in 1994. We REALLY need a win against Iowa.

    We will be in the ESPN bottom 10 for sure, maybe for the rest of the season.

    Sagarin has us at #137. That is lower than #105 from last year. In 2003 we did win more games with a similar schedule. Maybe we did Dan a favor as his group is looking good down by his retirement home.

    The talent is there. There was even talk about a possible bowl after the first game from impartial journalists. I keep hearing excuses: its not HIS players, its a new system, etc. These are all excuses for a 5-7 season. Not total collapse.

    Cycloneinmonaco, I tried to stay away from your posts... But please unplug your computer and walk away. You make no sense. One minute its fire the coach, the next minute he's still a God.

    Seriously I hate to be like this. You change your mind more times in one day then I change underwear, and yes I do change them at least once a day.

    Post one of these, I dare you. Nobody said that about ISU this year at all and it is a complete lie. Seriously, one link.

    I'd like to see one link to those too. What a joke.

    Re: ISU is the lowest ranked BCS school

    The talent is there at the glamorous positions (WR, RB, and I'd even throw in the QB, LB), that I don't dispute.

    But the talent isn't there in the trenches (O-line and D-line) where the real work is done. This lack of talent does not allow the real talent on our team to shine.

    Re: ISU is the lowest ranked BCS school

    I once did say that the talent was there. The conclusion that I've come to after two games is for the most part, there isn't nearly as much talent as I thought, and where there is talent, either they don't have the leadership skills, mental toughness, and/or desire and drive to go with that talent (Meyer and Blythe), or their play is so impaired by the lack of talent around them (Bowen and Bass) that they could be all-conference players and their performance still wouldn't show through. Face it - we are a bad team and the situation that was given to Chizik was so bad that not even Pete Carrol or what's his name from Florida would have been successful.

    I'm surprised that we're NOT RANKED LOWER THAN THAT.


    Chizik has to be getting desperate for a victory, I know I am & the sooner the better!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I just took a dump that could write a more intelligent post than that.
