    Bold Predictions of the Year

    Hello Cyclone fans! Happy Sunday morning! It is now less than one week until our beloved Cyclones take the field against a very good Tulsa team. With the college football season starting this Thursday and all other games being played over the weekend I ask, What bold predictions will you make this year about either the Cyclones, XII teams, or even a few far out predictions on the National level.

    Here are a few of mine:
    - ISU will win 7 games this year with a favorable XII schedule (if there is even such a thing) and a defense that will be hitting extremely hard and forcing a lot of turnovers.
    - Texas will win the XII
    - TCU will finish below ISU in the final XII rankings
    - Nebraska will win the B1G
    - an SEC team will not win the National Title (although one could say that this is not very bold)

    Just a few of my "gut" feelings. What are some of yours? Sorry ahead of time is a thread like this has already been made for this year. I thought it would be fun and hopefully make this week go a little faster because I am guessing it will draaagggggggggg on.

    Paul Rhoads finally beats KSU and Father Time, at which point Snyder yells, "NOOOOOOOOOOOO!" as his body ages even more, then turns to dust like the Grail scene in Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade.

    I forgot Iowa. I think we can beat them, too. While this is very bold, I think we can do it. All three games are at home, and we are due to beat KSU or OU this year. And Iowa, well it's pretty obvious that this year they're actually pretty close to us overall.

    After getting a train run on them in the SEC, Texas A&M comes crawling back to the Big 12 and we laugh in their face
