We, the old timers, would love to see Danny boy's one time assistant in CPR steal that W for us this season.

    Mostly, I think tied for 3rd in Big 12 would be a tremendous accomplishment for the Cyclones. The following weekend we can beat A&M - the other SEC-goner to become as good as 2nd in Big 12. Then we only got one more win that we need. Then we pound on both Tech and Kansas and guess what - we are ranked as long as Texas and Baylor continue to improve :)

    I know, I know, I had a little too much to drink already - but folks, all we need is steal this "W" this weekend. The next three games are winnable.
    It's pretty early man.

    Re: We can be tied for THIRD in Big 12!!!

    You may want to double check your math. There are three 2-0 teams in the Big12. Also, A&M plays Baylor so one of those teams will be 2-1. So, the best I see is tied for fifth.

    First, You are vastly underestimating A&M. They are a really, really good team that is two major collapses away from being a top 5 team. It would be a monumental upset if we pulled that off.
    Secondly, in your scenerio, OU, OSU, Baylor and KSU would all be ahead of us in the standings which would make us tied for 5th at best.

    Re: We can be tied for THIRD in Big 12!!!

    OP must be going off total record instead of conference record? Or maybe just -- wrong.


    May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)

    What you're saying tells me that the aggies are a very talented team, but not a very good team. A very good team doesn't have two major collapses. They turn those into wins.


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

    Fair enough, but we'll still have a very difficult time with a "very talented" team like A&M. Those collapses didn't come against the sisters of the poor either...OSU and Arky are pretty stout teams themselves.

    Re: We can be tied for THIRD in Big 12!!!

    After all the visiting teams win and if they win, here's how Big 12 looks:

    OU, OSU, KSU AT 3-0 each, tied for 1st

    BAY at 2-1, lonely at 2nd

    Texas, Tech and Iowa State tied for 3rd


    WE ARE IOWA STATE

    No, tied for 5th. Do you seriously not know how this works.

    1. OU
    1. OSU
    1. KSU
    4. BAY
    5. TEX
    5. TT
    5. ISU
    5. A&M
    9. MU
    9. KU


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year olds life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Wow, you need to work on your math. Because there are three teams tied for first, Baylor would be FOURTH. Use logic: regardless of whether they are tied for first, there are three teams better than Baylor, therefore Baylor is FOURTH. TT, UT, and ISU tied for FIFTH, possibly making us the fifth, sixth, or seventh best team in the conference.....

    Wow.....

    no, Baylor alone in 4th, TX, Tech and ISU tied for 5th. If you have 9 teams at 1-0 and one team at 0-1 that doesn't mean the one team is in 2nd place.
