    CFN.com ranking

    Did anyone see the CFN.com ranking??? They actually have us above Iowa, after the possible injury to Hill narrowing their backfield to 4, makes you wonder if the curse will continue?????

    Re: CFN.com ranking

    I find it interesting that they also have us ranked higher than Baylor and only 1 behind TTech.

    Re: CFN.com ranking

    #48 ISU is ranked above the following 2012 opponents:

    #75 Tulsa
    #74 Kansas
    #56 Iowa
    #50 Baylor

    TTech is #47

    Western Illinios is D-II and went 2-9 last year.

    If ISU truly is better than all of these and Texas Tech's weakness is D against the run game, I'd say that's 6 wins right there.

    However, Tulsa is on the Upset Alert list and Texas Tech is on the Teams that will Surpise list. To even this out some, ISU is on the Programs on the Rise list. Will get interesting:

    If you look at the actual picks for the year, They have us going 6-6 and 4-5 in the conference, with wins over Baylor, k-state, KU and West Virginia. As well as 2-1 in on-conference.

    Add to this the fact that CFN has Tulsa, Iowa, TTech and Baylor projected in bowl games and no ISU and you go "Huh?".

    Multiple writers handle multiple areas, sometimes predictions are not in-line......

    Re: CFN.com ranking

    After seeing both Tech and ISU at 6-6 with ISU's last game a projected win over WVU and Tech's last two games losses, I guess I'd choose ISU over Tech but when it's about number of fans going to the game, maybe they think Tech will travel better.

    I like this analysis. Now we just need to figure out who to upset this year so Paul Rhoads can get a 7-5 regular season under his belt.

    I hope it's Oklahoma!

    You're new here, so let me be the first to politely show you something wrong with your post, I've corrected it. Take a little time to notice the difference.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    WVU 'the upset' with the current prediction.... Phone more would add to the enjoyment, but out of the predicted loses, I could see W from Texas Tech and Iowa....
