    David Ubben Thinks ISU starts 3-0

    Ten fearless predictions for 2011 - Big 12 Blog - ESPN

    God, I can only hope. On the other hand, this board would go crazy talking about National Titles if we did...

    No reason why we shouldn't at least start 2-1.

    So you think this is the Iowa Hawkeye Forum?

    Ten fearless predictions for 2011: ESPN

    Ubben:

    5. Iowa State will beat Iowa in Ames and start the season 3-0. Seneca Wallace would be proud. Steele Jantz and the Cyclones notch their first victory in the rivalry since 2007, then follow it up with a Friday night road win against a depleted UConn team.

    I can honestly see this happening. It would be a huge win against Iowa and then going into the conference undefeated would be a huge boost of morale and confidence.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Forwarding that blog post to a couple Hawk lovers in my office instantly created a firestorm of high blood pressure fueled rage. Nice work Ubbs.

    Here's one response, verbatim:

    That’s some hard hitting analysis behind that prediction.

    Re: David Ubben Thinks ISU starts 3-0

    I also think we'be got a great chance of starting 3-0. UConn and Iowa are both very winnable.

    Re: David Ubben Thinks ISU starts 3-0

    Come on now, this isn't HawkeyeNation, or even the In-State Rivals forum. 99% of us here would be happy with winning 6 games this year and eventually averaging 8 wins over a long stretch - and you think a 3-0 start is going to get us thinking national title, especially when we've got OU, OSU, and Mizzou on the schedule?

    Like I said, you're mixing up fan bases...

    That is what I am saying too.... Has Ubben' view of us changed? Seems different to me...

    Re: Ten fearless predictions for 2011: ESPN

    That would be huge. It would be very exciting to see what a Rhoads team could do with that kind of momentum coming into the conference season. Picking up at least 3 more wins would seem very doable
