    Thumbs up #24 Iowa State vs Oklahoma State

    Just saw that at the bottom bar of ESPN and got goosebumps. How sweet is it to have that number next to our name on tv?!

    Probably never, now let's prove that we shouldn't have been either.

    Re: #24 Iowa State vs Oklahoma State

    just weird to be unranked at 4-1 and ranked the next week at 4-2...i get it was #5 KSU, but a L is a L. Time to prove the ranking and that we shouldn't be dogs. Plus I wanna be at 6 wins (bowl eligible) before we go into the KU game in lawrence...

    BCS Standings weren't out last week or we would have been ~21.

    Re: #24 Iowa State vs Oklahoma State

    Theres a lot of people on here who say, "rankings don't mean anything, I'd rather not be ranked." but this is great for our program. People outside of the big 12 and this state, probably don't really follow Iowa State, but being on ESPN and being shown as a top 25 team is huge for national recognition, people care about who is ranked and who isn't. Wheres the first place people check scores on saturday? They browse through the top 25 and see who was upset and who won. Lets get better and improve our ranking, go cyclones!

    That little number is important to tell casual fans that we don't suck. That is all there is too it. It is an undeniable fact, and it leads to excitement in the fan base and is great for our program.

    Re: #24 Iowa State vs Oklahoma State

    I think its important because this team would be 6-0 and ready to do serious damage if it didn't have 2 complete and absolute stiffs at QB and a dreadful kicker... so these kids deserve something to show for their commitment and for being very good.

    The guys who throw and kick the football just flat out suck and are why the team couldn't put in a td to win against the #5 team in the country when given 2 chances at the end of the game...and when an AK47 pick 6 and near shutout first half of D wasn't enough to beat a good TT team who were on the ropes until our QB and kicker did everything they could to help them out.

    Good job. They are all we've got at this point so cutting them down is really going to boost their their confidence and help them compete. Why don't you boo them when they take the field while you are at it?
