    Calling it.

    Iowa State wins a Big12 Title and BCS Bowl game in the next five years if CPR, Wally, Yancy, and Klenakis are still here.

    Re: Calling it.

    I'm calling...horse ****...in 5 years if it doesn't happen, no one will ever remember this post. If it does happen, you can pull it up and say you called it. So no negative repercussions if you're wrong, but positive ones if your right.

    In that case, I call:

    ISU will win the NCAA men's and women's basketball tournament in the next 5 years

    ISU will bring back baseball and go to the college world series in the next 10 years

    Gene Chizik will secret leak a 'sex tape' in the next 5 years to try and regain some relevance.

    Kirk Ferentz will board a starship to mars just for the heck of it within the decade.

    Snowcraig will forget his kids at school at least once per year until they're old enough to drive they own ***.

    I will drink a beer that I don't enjoy

    Kim Kardashian will be on a weight watchers commercial in 3 years or less, and Kanye will dump her when she loses the 'donk. (wait, that one's plausible...)

    Hayden Fry will be reanimated from the dead to bring the Iowa football program back to relevance (most likely when Kirk goes all 'major tom')

    NCAA football will be disbanded and re-introduced as an arena league style feeder program to the NFL and the cyclones will be forced to change their name to the barnstormers and be tied to the browns...thus solidifying our position at the bottom of the pile...I'll give that a decade.

    Steve Deace will write an article in the next 7 years that is universally lauded and praised by cyclone fans.

    I could go on, but I hate to take all the good ones.

    Rusty...I admire your positivity...but I gotta bust your balls for all upside, no downside.

    In 2016 Fred Hoiberg will be elected part-time President of the United States. And he will name Chris Williams as his Chief of Staff.

    I wish it was only your poor track record on predictions that caused me to doubt this.

    Re: Calling it.

    We've been hanging on to the bottom rung of Big 12 bowls and our bowl selection this past season was a gift.

    ISU will have to get to the Alamo Bowl or higher in the picking order before BCS games even enter the conversation.

    But I really hope you're right and I am not!

    Re: Calling it.

    The BCS probably wont even be around in five years.

    I dont totally disagree that we could potentially win the conference, not very likely but it could happen. If a year like 2013 when the conference is wide open comes up and ISU happens to have a team that can contend it could happen.

    I mean there are 3-4 teams that could legitimately win the conference this year (we are not one of them) so if the stars align again in the next 5 years I could see it happening.


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register
