    I'm not drinking Kool Aid but could we be undefeated going into the KU game?

    So I know these first couple games really don't mean anything, and Im not saying were a top 25 team yet or anything, but I was looking at the schedule and if we can somehow beat Cincy and Oregon/UNLV how good of a shot is being undefeated going into KU (first big 12 game)? I mean I know we have BYU at home, and then @Iowa but I think we could take BYU and @Iowa will be our toughest test (outside of Las Vegas tourney). I think we could do it, at the very least I'm expecting to only have 2 losses at the start of conference. REally like Lucious, Niang and Clyburn. I'm excited to see how much better we'll be with Babb out there again too. Go cyclones!

    Going undefeated isn't out of the question. I'd give us a 20 percent shot. Don't think we will, but it's definitely possible. Maybe looking a little ahead into it. Our competition has been less than stellar so far. We have no idea how their going to react once they hit teams that can match their physicality.

    UNLV @ UNLV would probably be the most difficult game in the non-conference schedule, but ISU is not guaranteed to play UNLV. Second most difficult may be against Cinncinnati in Las Vegas.

    There is definitely a shot. Also, there are a lot of winnable games in the Big 12. We're to the point as a program where we can expect to win every game that we play.

    I seriously doubt it. Iowa will be a tough game, as will UNLV and Cinci. The odds of not dropping one are pretty low IMO.

    Other than the automatic loss we'll suffer to Campbell Camels, the greatest team in the history of all sports, I agree we'll be unbeaten heading into KU.

    I think we lose a single digit number of games this year.

    There's a whole lotta jinxing going on in here with regard to those camels. I'd be careful if I were you, they'll get ya.

    Gotta get over the hump Sunday evening.

    Burn the Soup, then go undefeated. Burn the Soup first.

    It sounds like you like to burn a lot of things. Do you have a problem? Have you tried to freeze anything? Might be safer.
