    What's ISU's Record in 2012?

    Assuming WVU is in the Big 12 next year...
    My "homer" prediction (if ISU has a decent offense and a good qb).

    Non-Con
    Tulsa W (Tulsa is a pretty difficult team, but I trust CPR to get this victory)
    Iowa W (This game will be a toss-up, but I like the Cyclones)
    Western Illinois W (Unless they improve, this should be a pretty easy win.)

    Conference
    Texas L (We compete but fall short at the end.)
    Baylor W (In an exciting game, our defense prevails against Baylor's lethal offense.)
    WVU W (WVU struggles in it's welcome to the Big 12)
    TCU L (Close loss, TCU has a mediocre season but beats ISU anyway.)
    TT W (We seem to play well against them.)
    KU W (I can't see Charlie being a good fit in that program.)
    OSU W (Here's the upset of the year.)
    OU L (Close loss but Stoops pulls it out again.)
    KSU W (We finally get these guys.)

    Regular Season: 9-3

    Love the optimism of 9-3. At the very least 6 wins, I think we will win 8 though.

    Re: What's ISU's Record in 2012?

    My optimistic record is 8-4 but I see 7-5 as our record. Unless one of our QB's can start to complete more passes then I could see us doing better.

    Re: What's ISU's Record in 2012?

    Jukebox,
    I pray that your right. I'd give my left nut if you were right. My gut feeling is either a 7-5 or 8-4 regular season. CPR finally finds the right qb and the offensive line busts it's arse better then this season.
    ISU has talent at runningback it has never seen before. The wide outs are going to be good next season. We have the best linebacking corp in the BIGXII. Let's just hope we find the right CO to lead this offense. Wally will have the defense ready.
    We should have one HUGE upset somewhere if not two. Once again I say either 7-5 or hopefully 8-4. If that happens I can see a nice bowl somewhere in the south.

    Re: What's ISU's Record in 2012?

    at the very least a 6 win season. The XII always has a team that is projected to do very well (Texas A&M) in the year but ends up with a poor season. They also always have a team that over achieves (K-State).

    With having a general idea of how the schedule will be. This year has breakout written all over it for CPR. He has shown what he can do with an extremely difficult schedule the past 3 years. Id like to see what he can do with a far more manageable schedule.

    Re: What's ISU's Record in 2012?

    Possible depth chart?

    Offense:

    TE: Hammerschmidt/Brun (Should be the same or better)
    LT: Bykowski? (KO will be a pretty big loss, but the line seems pretty solid)
    LG: Tuftee (Should get better)
    C : Farinok (Should get better)
    RG: Gannon? (Hicks was good but had a lot of penalties that killed drives.)
    RT: Burris? Lichtenberg? (Should get better)

    Overall Offensive Line/Tight End Prediction:
    Kelechi is a huge loss, but the improvement of all the other players may offset KO's talent.

    QB: Steele Jantz OR Jared Barnett OR Sam Richardson (I hope this position gets a lot better. They need to.)
    RB: White, Woody, Johnson, Hollis, Nealy, Standard (Should be better)
    WR: Horne, Daniels, Lenz, West, Bundrage, Young, Gary (Darius Reynolds had some big games this year but was non-existent in half of them. Darks was not a big producer this year. Should get better)

    Overall Skill Position Prediction:
    This group needs the most improvement, and I see a lot of groups that should improve.

    Defense:
    LE: Scott, Irving (Lattimer was decent but should probably get better)
    DT: McDonough, Liang, Simon (Should get better)
    NG: Woods, Jensen, Pompey (I think Pompey has the raw ability to be better than Rump, but we'll see how he performs next season.)
    RE: Maggitt, Nelson, Hayes (Should get better)

    Overall D-Line Prediction:
    Should improve because of experience. We need more QB pressure next year!

    SLB: Cheese (Better)
    MLB: George/Porter (Better)
    WLB: Knott (Better)

    Overall Linebackers Prediction:
    Will be amazing hopefully. We will miss Cheese and Knott after this upcoming season.

    RCB: Watson? Stokes? (Probably won't be as good as LJ, but hopefully will be in time.)
    LCB: Reeves (Better)
    SS: Brackens (This guy looks like a player. I think he will be as good as Ter'ran.)
    FS: Washington (Better)

    Overall Secondary Prediction:
    Should be pretty good--especially if they don't get any 15 yard penalties. Hopefully they get better then they were this year.

    6-6 minimum 12-0 max

    Really hoping for at least 8-4 and an upset against Oklahoma.

    Im not sure about the record but I'm expecting a bowl game. I expect an 3-0 start again, Tulsa will be tough but they replace a great QB, hopefully the new guys struggles and IMO the Hawks have a lot of question marks on offense.

    Re: What's ISU's Record in 2012?

    We don't have an elite QB...maybe Sam Richardson is one. I think maybe he is. You've have GOT to have one to win big in this conference. But until we get one we are going to struggle to get to 6-7 wins. Including next year. People thinking we win 8-9 wins next are high. Straight up high. Not going to happen. 2013...maybe, if the ball bounces our way, we get to 8-9 wins.

    I think we could win 8 games next year. If the team is as good as I think it could be, I would expect to win Tulsa, Iowa, WIU, Kansas, and Tech, and out of the other 7, I would think 3 wouldn't be out of reach (BU, KSU, WVU could be great chances, and as we saw with OSU this year, every game is winnable). 8-4 would be a fantastic outcome and I'm not expecting it but it is definitely not out of reach either. Of course it is impossible to know right now.

    9 would be crazy but 8 would be as surprising as 6 this season.
