    Where we COULD be right now.

    OK, so I'm an eternal optimistic. But, here's where Iowa State could be in football right now.
    Kent State-with even a decent effort and half the turnovers, this is an I State win, we are 1-0
    Northern Iowa-same story. Game could have come down to a field goal, and I State pulls it out
    2-0
    Iowa-Iowa State wins with Shaggy staring
    3-0
    Toledo-Iowa State flurting with top 25, getting some votes. Big win
    4-0
    Nebraska-Iowa State comes in ranked 22 in the country. Takes a close win.
    5-0
    Texas Tech-Iowa State ranked 18th in the nation loses
    5-1
    Texas-Big TV game, but Cyclones lose
    5-2
    Oklahoma-chance for Iowa State to redeem themselves, pull out a victory
    6-2
    Missouri-Battle for Big 12 North, ISU again in Top 25 and wins at Columbia
    7-2
    Kansas State-Cyclones ranked 12th in the nation, need a big win....
    (Hey, I only said it could have happened)

    I know where you can find Kool-aid, but where did you find the Kool-aid bong?

    Re: Where we COULD be right now.

    Well, we could play the UNI game next Saturday and the result would be very similar IMO.

    We should have beat Toledo, no doubt about that.

    Kent State? That game is still very iffy to me the way they ran it down our throats in the second half.

    Nebraska was already in the tank when we played them and we still couldn't get the job done.

    Texas Tech would still cause problems for our secondary, especially the lack of depth we apparently have back there.

    So basically we could be 3-6 if we got to do somethings over again. Still got a ways to go.

    Holy Cow man I love the picture you just put in my head! Now my only question for you is why is the water in Owatonna so damn good, what ever is in that stuff you need to ship some up North. Someday my friend that prediction will be a bad year for us. Someday.

    Re: Where we COULD be right now.

    Ummm... this is the most meaningless post I've ever read. You must have a really short memory. I mean, a REALLY REALLY short memory, as in milliseconds. Up until the Oklahoma game, we were BAD. Really bad. God-awfully bad. Stink-to-high-heaven bad. So bad Chizik's job might appear on Mike Rowe's show on the Discovery Channel, that bad. There was just no way were were going to win those games, period. End of story.

    We could have and should have won some of those games. It wasn't about the other team it was about our own mistakes...

    My memory isn't that short. We had Toledo won until the meltdown. And if I remember, Kent State was turnovers from Sandvig and Meyer that cost the game. And I was at the Nebraska game. Meyers pass interceptions cost us the game. So I agree, we did not win the games. But if the skill positions started the season as assets instead of liabliities, the rest of the team MIGHT have risen to the challenge.

    Re: Where we COULD be right now.

    You've gone and mixed up the Playstation 3 world and the real world. This looks more like a NCAA 08 season but I wouldn't see how we'd be ranked after beating Kent State, a bad Iowa team, Toledo, and UNI. Just wouldn't happen. Not with where we started the season in most eyes. You shouldn't probably provide some reasoning as to why we would have won those games.

    But seriously, coulda, shoulda, woulda, but didn't.
