    We will win 6 games!!!!

    I will be the first to predict that we will win 6 games - even after a horrible showdown with Texas and a bad loss at Baylor. We are competitive with top ranked teams. Baylor game was always within 1 or 2 scores - take away the fumbles, interceptions and our stupid penalties and we are almost tied with Baylor and Texas, for that matter.

    If I were Paul Rhoads, I would be optimistic with this team. We have playmakers. We just can't give up.

    We need to beat Miissouri, A&M, Tech and Kansas. These four teams are beatable. I watched the Missouri team play today - they are not as good as Baylor or even Texas. Kansas is horrible. Tech & A&M have yet to impress me and we are five weeks into this season.

    Don't give up folks. We need to beat up on A&M during homecoming. We have the right coaches and the right playmakers. We need to show a lot of support. This is not over. We are competitive. When you are in Big 12, the scores DO NOT show how competitive these teams are. Big 12 is known for putting up a LOT of scores. We will too. We just have to keep believing in Jantz. We have to keep believing in this team PERIOD!!!

    Asolutely, we cleaned it up a lot this week, who knows if jantz doesnt mle, wind came out of our sails after that. They will beat Mizzou I'll bet on it.

    Re: We will win 6 games!!!!

    It's not about us believing....its about the players and coaches believing that they can do it. If they believe, then yes, they will win 6 games. It's going to be difficult for them with these last two losses, but its still possible.

    I am as optimistic as you are, i think they can win 6 games too. It's going to be very difficult with our schedule. In any other conference (besides SEC) i think we win 6 games no doubt.

    I could see it, but for the love of god, why did everyone in the Big 12 have to become good.

    I don't see it, but I hope you're right.

    Tech will outscore us. Mizzou will be tough, OU and OSU no way, A&M is good, K-State maybe, KU hopeful win

    I think players are optimistic too. It was not until 4th qtr that I really thought Jantz and co gave up. This is a talented team that ISU has. Baylor is just REALLY REALLY good with their offense. Its not easy to sack RG3, its not easy to almost intercept his passes. Its not easy to take Kandell down. Our fanbase needs to show up again at A&M game. We will win 6.

    Re: We will win 6 games!!!!

    I think a bowl game is still possible. Wins from the following could be: KState, Mizzou, KU and Tech. ISU does not match up well with OU, Okie St or A & M. Matchups are huge, ISU did not matchup well with Baylor but matches up MUCH better against Mizzou. I could see ISU winning...

    If KState wasn't the last game of the year, I would say we would win that one too. They are just a hungry bunch this year. Snyder will do good things this year. I see KState beating Texas and even one of the OKlahomas.

    ISU needs to beat Mizzou next weekend for the fans to show up. You know as well as I do that the fans, including myself, are getting ready for basketball season. Herman is an awful OC, the team continues to turnover the ball and committ stupid penalties. There is potential on this team, but too many stupid mental mistakes.

    Re: We will win 6 games!!!!

    My only hope is that since Jantz hasn't played a ton of college ball he learns to read defenses and he starts reading the blitzes and calming down putting the ball where it needs to be. Then somehow our line turns things around as they are collapsing even when we are not being blitzed. If these things happen, we can possibly see 6, but it will also take some breaks going our way.

    I am hopeful Clones can get to 6 wins but just do not know where they will come from. Texas was one game I felt was winable.

    Missouri is must-win now. Get 1 of 2 vs Texas or Baylor, maybe it wouldn't be so much that way.

    There's no more room for error, because I don't know if Rhoads is going to pull off that "wow!" win (if so, A&M would be the game). Tech is beatable, KSU possibly.
