    We only have 6 (maybe 7) cyclone games left

    Its crazy that were halfway through the season. Honestly, if you told me we'd be 4-2 at this point in the season during June I would of been happy. My expectations have risen with this team and I don't see how we can't get to 8 wins.
    I see us beating: Baylor, Kansas, Oklahoma state, and maybe Texas. Its a tall order, but I think for sure we can knock off Baylor and Kansas. We've had two chances to win two big games in Tech and K-state and fell both times, if we win our next 2 the game with Oklahoma will be huge and we'll get yet another turn to turn the corner that we keep missing.
    Lets go cyclones!

    I would agree that 8 wins is very possible.

    Baylor, KU, OSU, and one of UT\WVU, or even a big upset of OU.

    Will it happen, remains to be seen... but its very possible.

    I am hoping for 7 with an outside shot at 8...wouldnt be surprised with 6 though.

    An 8 win season would be a huge step forward. And I'm counting the bowl in that. If ISU finished 8-5 the season has to be considered a massive success.

    I would even say 7 wins is a pretty big success in this league...especially w/o atop flight QB.

    the only team that scares me still is West Virginia. If they get a couple stops on us and we can stop Geno smith and company it'll turn into a blow out really really quick.

    On the other hand, if we can stop them like tech did and put up points on them like... everyone does.. it could be a repeat of what tech did to them.

    This. I had said all season that every game could be winnable for us. I wasn't so sure about WVU, though it appears they're human after all.

    I'd wager KSU is the best team we'll play all year. Certainly top 3.

    We probably won't win out, but we still could win a lot more games.
