    Way Too Early 2012 Predictions

    Don't even have a schedule yet but now that the 2011 season is over... take a shot at it.

    At least we know who will be on the schedule (barring a WVU/Big East snafu), even if we aren't sure where ISU will be playing them.

    vs. Tulsa
    @ Iowa
    vs. Western Illinois
    Baylor
    Kansas
    Kansas State
    Oklahoma
    Oklahoma State
    TCU
    Texas
    Texas Tech
    West Virginia

    I will be an optimist here and predict an 8-5 season (after the bowl game of course) for the Cyclones. There are tough games on that schedule, but there aren't any that I look at and count as automatic losses anymore.

    Re: Way Too Early 2012 Predictions

    Very similar to this year. Lower tier bowl game will likely be the destination. Tulsa is a testy opener but I see it similar to the Northern Illinois game 2 yrs ago.

    Setting the table for year 5 aka the breakout year for CPR and the Clones.

    Re: Way Too Early 2012 Predictions

    vs. Tulsa W
    @ Iowa W/L
    vs. Western Illinois W
    Baylor W/L
    Kansas W
    Kansas State W
    Oklahoma L
    Oklahoma State L
    TCU W/L
    Texas L
    Texas Tech W
    West Virginia L

    I think 7-5 or 6-6, with a bowl win bringing it to 8-5 or 7-6.
    Iowa, Baylor and TCU are my toss-ups, winning 1 or 2 of the 3.

    We start the season 6-0. And then go 1-5 the rest of the way.

    That is a very bold pick considering no one has a clue what order we will play our conference schedule in.

    Re: Way Too Early 2012 Predictions

    Tulsa will be the deal breaker. If we can knock off Tulsa right off the bat I think we'll be ok. Iowa will be rebuilding. So that's a toss up. Western Illinios should be a victory.
    I can see us starting out 3-0 with a tough conference schedule ahead. Out of that, we should at the minimum win 3 more games. I see either a 6-6 record or we could be 8-4 before the bowl games.

    Re: Way Too Early 2012 Predictions

    vs. Tulsa............win, BYU was bad this year
    @ Iowa.............loss, we both have big holes to fill, and it's at Iowa
    vs. Western Illinois...win, WIU isn't good anymore
    Baylor.......loss, their talent level has gone up tremendously under Briles
    Kansas.....win, might be the worst BCS football program in the country
    Kansas State.....w/l guess it depends on their juco transfers
    Oklahoma.......loss, they have too much talent and qb will have experience by then
    Oklahoma State....loss, too much speed and payback
    TCU...loss, hate them in Big 12, even harder to recruit texas now
    Texas....loss, they'll be much better next year, 18 freshman playing in '11? wow
    Texas Tech...win, Tech doesn't know what they want to do on O or D right now
    West Virginia....w/l home team wins

    I've got my over under at 4 or 5 depending on whose home against WVU. I think the oline/dline/back 4 replacements are too much to expect more. I'll take 5-7 sight unseen right now. Another 6-6 would give me the same level of pleasure as this year did, which would be outstanding.

    Re: Way Too Early 2012 Predictions

    6-7 wins plus a bowl game, and that will make me very happy.


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

    Re: Way Too Early 2012 Predictions

    6-6 would be my prediction. If we can go 3-0 in the non-conference then I would say 7-5.

    8-4 would be extremely good. 5-7 would be acceptable, but slightly disappointing. 4-8 would be a huge let down.

    I think I would agree with this. I would definitely be disappointed with 5 wins though. But anything less than that would definitely be a massive let down
