    Sagarin this week

    Shows ISU and OKst at #23 nationally. Not sure if his numbers are reliable quite yet. Says we're favored by 38 over WIU - which would be about right if our offense gets back on track.

    Re: Sagarin this week

    If the game starts out like it will be a 38 point decision, I'd expect the coaches to transistion the plays and players to a glorified practice. I'm always leery of large point spreads especially when they involve Iowa State. We may have a sufficient "killer instinct" but I don't think we have a "let's embarrass them" instinct. (I'm torn whether we should)

    Re: Sagarin this week

    This high ranking has to be related to the crappy competition the rest of college football is playing right now. I'm still not calling this a ranked team, although I think we'll be knocking on the door if we power through our next three games.

    We are number 7 in the ELO CHESS variant which is what the BCS formula uses. Way too early, of course.

    Re: Sagarin this week

    Sagarin's numbers aren't at all accurate for a few more games. It takes time to get enough data points for a reliable ranking.

    That being said, #7 *******.

    Re: Sagarin this week

    Yeah, it's early so these aren't real useful. Plus, computer rankings for college football are getting more and more worthless for comparing across conferences. For example, this year, the SEC and Big 12 go head to head in only 1 game (Texas vs. Ole Miss). There just isn't enough data to make meaningful comparisons.

    Re: Sagarin this week

    I am confused on something. If you look at the games the XII have played against lets say, not so competitive of teams, the other XII teams did NOT take mercy and simply shut down their scoring. +50's, +60's against the competition?
    Do we .....as a "respectful" team, NOT continue to be competitive and run the score up, just as others have done....and take the accolades along with that. (i.e. they (isu) just manhandled that team, they just ran all over them, they are a way better team than anyone thought), or do we put in our "2's", and let them play...and if they continue to run all over them, enter in the "3's"?
    I think not! i say keep on running it in. Take it for all its worth!

    Absolutely get the 2's and 3's playing time so when you need them in 2-3 weeks or even next season they will have a better chance of doing their jobs correctly - that is how you build a program imo.

    Iowa State is 3rd in the Colley Matrix another BCS computer. Thanks to Tulsa and Iowa both beating their other opponents this year. Only thing keeping us from 1st is Tulane's loss to Rutgers.

    Wow. Two wins and we are ready to name the score? I just hope we can learn how to hold onto the football and get away with a comfortable win where nobody gets hurt.

    I'm not sure you realize who we're playing. If this were a lot of other teams i'd agree, but WIU sucks. If we don't put a pounding on them it is cause for concern.

    Our team certainly can't completely disregard this game, but as fans, we should expect our team to be ready and if they are, there will be domination.

    I'm excited for two things next Saturday: for Steele and company to gain back their confidence, and to see the freshman playmakers that everybody raves about, like DeVondrick Nealy, to play.

    I see now that they lost 69-0 last year to Mizzou. Methinks you may have a point.
