    Is Iowa State football cursed?

    Why can we never get over the hurdle we need to get over as a program.

    We just don't have the talent. CPR will be known as the coach to win big games but has some major let downs.

    It's not that we're cursed, it's just that we don't have the talent to make up for mistakes that most teams make from time to time.

    Our defense is awesome... good enough to win a Big XII championship. Our offense isn't good enough to beat most high school teams.

    Re: Is Iowa State football cursed?

    As others have said I can't remember ANY season in which we had even average talent compared to B8/12 schools. Just look at how few NFL players we've produced over the years.

    Next to the bottom in talent will make it difficult to ever win 8+ games while in the B12
