    Bleach report...FAIL

    Texas vs. Iowa State: Last-Minute Spread Info and Predictions | Bleacher Report

    The Hawkeyes are also undefeated, but they could just as easily be 0-3.

    I thought we beat those Hawks.



    Key Injuries
    Texas LB Chet Moss (back) is questionable.
    Texas WR John Harris (foot), Christian Scott (suspension), and LB Demarco Cobbs (arm) are out.
    Texas QB Garrett Gilbert (shoulder) is out for the year.
    Iowa State FB Brad Rogers (heart), and DB B.J. Lowery (arm) are out.
    Iowa State LB Dakota Getz (knee), RB Mika'il McCall (ankle), and LB Shane DiBona (Achilles) are out for the year.

    Who knew?

    A win here wouldn't get Iowa State ranked, but they wouldn't be far from it. An undefeated season that includes a win over a ranked opponent is usually enough to get some votes.

    Excellent logic since we're on the brink of being ranked already from the votes we're receiving.

    I'm starting to think bleacherreport has a plant on this board who enjoys seeing us rage every time they **** up and call us the hawks.

    Love all the injured Hawks on that list. Bleacher report is always good for a laugh.

    Maybe they're doing hypothetical matchups using their video game console?

    Isn't Bleacher Report basically the National Enquirer of internet sports journalism anyway?

    Shouldn't this thread be a standing thread that just gets added to? It could very well approach the size of the Aggies leaving the Big 12 thread.

    They got this right, though:

    "A win for either would also help their conference record."

    Yeah, that was quite the limb they stepped off of there...

    So...so true. 29th in the polls and a win over a top 20 team doesn't get us in?

    I hope he is saying an undefeated season to date? An undefeated season with a win over a top 25 opponent should get you in the top 10 at least and more likely in the top 5. Why do people even read the Bleacher Report?

    Of course it's a Bleacher Report fail, when have they ever succeeded?

    @mdixon1985 I don’t think you need a college degree to write for bleachers report cyclonefanatic.com/forum/football…


    @MoonRyan12 Yup. I made a mistake. Deserved that one. Thanks for the read.
