    Expectations

    I Just wanted to say that I am Very happy with the way the season has gone. although, we are one win away from a Bowl bid, I dont really care what happens over the next three games. I would consider Making a bowl game is icing on the cake in my opinion. Paul Rhoads And company have consistently shown that this program is headed in the right Direction. CPR, is having his best year, Wins against Iowa, UConn coming off a fiesta bowl and a blow out of Texas Tech.

    alls I want for Christmas is a bowl bid.

    Yay for 5-7 seasons!

    Losing seasons make us happy!

    Re: Expectations

    I think I predicted only 3 wins this year - so I will take it.
    I hope we get back to a bowl game and the following years we can get to the point where maybe we can complain about what bowl we get...... that would be awesome!

    Agreed. It is a fact that ISU was only "favored" to win two games (UNI and KU). Ironically, both close contests. But we have 5 wins to date, and for me, it is all gravy from here.

    I was actually a little disappointed in the program (coaches/team) last year not to get 6 wins and to look so crappy against a mediocre CU team. But this year's schedule has been tough.

    I can admit we are clearly an "average" team, but love the fight the defense showed today in the fourth Q.

    Would love to see us pull an upset, but I will be fine with anywhere we finish.

    Re: Expectations

    If I were the AD (and I'm not) I would expect a bowl game at least every other year. We are on pace to accomplish that, so I'd be satisfied.

    As a fan, I don't expect anything. I just enjoy watching and supporting the Cyclones. Celebrate the wins and have fun.

    Re: Expectations

    Why stop at 5 wins? We're still in the hunt for an 8-4 season.

    Re: Expectations

    I expect to lose every game the rest of the year, but I don't put anything past Rhoads and crew.

    Because 6-6 is just plenty good enough, thank you.
