    Another 6-6 season next year unless we can improve in some areas.

    Frankly, we need to see some major improvement at the QB position for us to take it up a notch in the W/L column.

    We are still close to the bottom in talent in our conference and will play another very difficult schedule. Tulsa will not be much easier to beat than UConn, IMO. We play Iowa in IC. The B12 should be very good again, and TCU/WVU aren't a step down from A&M/Mizzou IMO.

    Our D is good enough to give us a chance to win, but we need more offensive production and in order to get that, we need more accurate passing. Maybe Barnett will be much improved with a real season under his belt.

    Our WR's and RB's are solid, but not great enough to overcome a poor passer.

    Me too. People need to keep in mind that 6-6 is NOT a bad season for us. With what we currently have and what we have to play against... it's pretty damn good.

    I would like us to be better, but I trust, with Rhoads, that will come in time. He's shown me no reason why it can't. Our players didn't preform today. It wasn't all on the coaches.

    Next year and the year after and the year after. A bowl year is a good year at Iowa State. Always and forever.

    Re: Another 6-6 season next year unless we can improve in some areas.

    I'd been hoping for next year to be our "breakout" year...but after the pathetic performance today, I'll just be hoping to get back to a bowl. Fair or not, this game was a huge blow to my excitement for next season.

    We desperately need to find a consistent, halfway decent QB.

    Same thing can be said for anyone. Need a good qb to be a really good team. There aren't any real good teams out there without good QB play ex Alabama and LSU, and that is a different level of defense right now.

    We need to find another Seneca, or our version of RGIII. Who knows, maybe that guy is Barnett, maybe Richardson, maybe the other kid coming in...time will tell.

    QB isn't the only position we need help on. The offense as a whole is still lacking playmaking ability. The RBs are good enough, but outside of that, I think we need to improve at every position to field a competitive offense.

    Massive improvements on offense, or we don't have a prayer.

    6-6 is fine with me as well. Regular post season births are the start to something bigger.

    If you offered me 6-6 right now for next year, I'd take it.

    Prepare to hear a lot of 2-10 predictions from the media. This will not be a fun off-season.

    What's new? They could put a bronze newspaper clipping with that prediction in the lockeroom and just have it so you can change the year.
