    I was thinking about what ISU returns next year

    and I was feeling pretty positive about next years team, especially the defensive side of the ball if we can get someone to replace Leonard Johnson at corner. I feel like Rhoads has really improved the defense since the beginning of last year. The offense needs to find a few new lineman and it would be nice if someone at WR would step up also.

    But............then I looked at what rest of the league is returning. There are a ton of returning starters for every team, Ok I didn't bother to look up Kansas. This league is going to be very tough again next year. I think everyone besides OSU returns their QB also.

    OU won't be returning their QB either... he's a top 10-15 pick next year... Landry will enjoy the NFL.

    Re: I was thinking about what ISU returns next year

    The big 12 as a whole is still pretty young but I think we'll be solid next year if we can get consistent QB play. That and the oline are my only real worries for next year. The schedule sets up nicer next year with a lot of winnable home games.

    Re: I was thinking about what ISU returns next year

    Lets face it the WR's need a lot of improvement and are a question mark on offense also.

    They have one bad game and everyone is calling for their heads. Pretty sure a couple weeks ago everyone was praising our receivers.

    I don't disagree, right now we've got servicable WR's but no one that scares anyone.

    Cool Re: I was thinking about what ISU returns next year

    It's always about "next year" with ISU football. I wish it wasn't so.

    Current 2012 schedule:

    Tulsa
    at Iowa
    Western Illinois
    at Texas
    Baylor
    Missouri
    at TCU
    Texas Tech
    at Kansas
    Oklahoma
    at Oklahoma State
    Kansas State

    Potentially winnable home games against Tulsa, Western Illinois, Baylor, Missouri, and Tech (maybe K-State, depending on how the rest of this year shakes out). Potentially winnable road games at Iowa, Texas, and Kansas.

    Still going to be very tough to find 6 wins on that schedule. Hopefully we have a QB worth something, WRs that can make some plays, and an improved OL/DL. And a reliable kicker, for a change.

    That schedule is great, we get wins over: Tulsa, W Ill, Baylor, Mizzu (or their replacement), TCU, KU, OSU, KSU. With a win over Nebby in the Insight bowl) -> 9-4 finished ranked #23. Just remember you heard it here first!
