    5-4 with 3 games to go.....

    Grant it we have a vicious schedule remaining but I think we spring an upset with one of the 3 games left and become bowl eligible. How do you see us finishing up and where do we pick up the 6th win?

    About the only chance is KSU. OSU and OU could probably compete with some NFL teams.

    If there is a 6th win, I would say that a bowl will be a virtual certainty. Why not just get three more and seal the deal ;)

    I hope your right, but I don't see it.

    I'm going to drink the kool-aid and say Rhoads goes at it in style and knocks off Okie State on Nov. 18th. We have two weeks to prepare, and they'll be looking to their matchup with Oklahoma.

    Hoping Okie St. comes in undefeated. It's a good set up for us. If we get some wind/weather, I think we will have a shot at giving them a game. We have played well and upset Okie St. in Ames in November in the past.

    I think things work out well for us to give OSU a scare. Not much of a chance, but a slight chance.

    We're the last team they play before Oklahoma, that's pretty much a National Championship play in game for them because Big 12 absolutely crushes everybody in the computer 1/3 of the equation.

    We had a win, but the kind of win that whips us into shape for two hard weeks of practice.

    We have a couple weeks to get healthy.

    Getting #6 against KSU is still A TON more likely, but we have a shot to play national spoiler.

    5-4 with 3 games to go. Just like last year.

    Must find a way to get win #6 (at least.)

    Enough with 5-7 seasons with one signature upset win a year.

    I agree about the 2 weeks to prepare. That gives the coaches and players time to prepare and try and make the best game plan possible to beat OSU.

    Tech beat OU at home. We beat Tech on the road. Therefore, OU and ISU don't need to play. Just give us the win.

    Re: 5-4 with 3 games to go.....

    We pick up the 6th win against OSU, the 7th win against OU, and the 8th win against K-State. How complicated is this???




    Paul Rhoads' players never quit.
    (They just disappear offseason)

    Re: 5-4 with 3 games to go.....

    We have almost no chance at winning the rest of the games but I am okay with that. Also, I wont go too far and say no chance becasue stranger things have happened. This has still been a very interesting year and I am very happy with what Rhoads has done here. Also, it is crazy how good this conference has been this year. Nevertheless, my expectations are going to be higher next year.

    Why are Cyclone fans fine with having an "Okay" season. I'm tired of the 5-7 seasons. I won't be happy with another 5 win season. We need to go bowling every year.

    I am not happy with that. I am not okay with that. I'm sad to see that you are.
