    SI Idiots

    I just read my sports illustrated and some idiot on their staff picked ISU to only win one game in the conference and two overall. This sounds so ridiculous to me i will be disapointed if ISU is not in a bowl game. Anyway i guess it will be fun to watch all these EXPERTS eat their words!!

    Go Cyclones

    Having been around ISU for a few yrs now, you should know that is the norm. I never read any preseason FB stuff. There is no point.

    Re: SI Idiots

    When you look at the unknowns on offense it is not hard to understand why people pick ISU with only 3 or 4 wins.

    Re: SI Idiots

    I am expecting ISU to win more than two games. But if I look at the season schedule today, I can only favor ISU in two games (UNI and Kansas). The schwing games are always the key.

    Re: SI Idiots

    I'm hoping for a bowl berth also this season.



    If we can start 3 & 0 we are half way to a bowl season...

    Re: SI Idiots

    All right people, we got 10 minutes 'till game time, let's all gather 'round. I'm not much for giving inspirational addresses, but I'd just like to point out that every newspaper in the country has picked us to finish last. The local press seems to think that we'd save everyone the time and trouble if we just went out and shot ourselves. Me, I'm for wasting sportswriters' time. So I figured we ought to hang around for a while and see if we can give 'em all a nice big shitburger to eat!”

    There is no doubt in my mind that we can win the Big XII this year. Tap the 9-year old little boy optimism in yourself. Go Cyclones!!!

    A bowl game would be a miracle.

    Yes, Captain Troll, we do. Iowa is beatable. We can beat them. 3-0 is not out of the question, and not even unlikely.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I agree. Not out of the question. But it IS unlikely.

    I think you just gave him a promotion. I believe Private Troll is more like it.

    Wow, you are so right. It is almost like we have never beat Iowa. Oh wait, I think we have split the series in the last 10 years. Beating the Hoks will not be a miracle, difficult yes, but far from impossible.

    I would prefer if you kept it at GySGT thanks. It was earned.
