    You know what, I take it back. It's NOT a good effort. Four post and post #25 until you spunk your troll juice all over the board? That takes NO discipline.

    No, I'd say that's not trending up.

    Correct that is not trending up but more of a level line trend. You also have to remember that unlike the Iowa Hawkeyes, ISU doesn't play a typical #50-100 SOS Big Ten schedule where you get four wins just by showing up.

    The minute a Big Ten team is involved in the discussion vs a Big 12, SEC or Pac 12 team just drop any comparison of win totals because the schedules are generally not comparable.

    If you strictly look at the W's and L's, no it doesn't necessarily look like it. However, we've reached 3 bowls in the 4 years with one of the toughest schedules in the nation each year.

    We are getting more national exposure thanks to our upset of #2 Okie State on ESPN, and our coaches famous post game speeches. We've had more people make NFL rosters in the past 2 years than any point in recent history. We have a current practice/weight facility better than anything we've ever had. We've set new attendance records the past 2 years. Recruiting has taken a slight up tick in talent, even though this is still a slow process.

    Over all, I would say yes, ISU is trending upwards.

    I love this guy. His troll attempt was so bad that is has given me entertainment today. I don't want it to end. Lets talk Bball coaches. I would love to read your thoughts.

Without Lazard we are likely quite a bit farther back in the rankings. (65-80 range) Wondering what others think about this class so far? Anyone worried that Lazard will get cold feet and bolt? It appears that his recruiting efforts in regards to the other in state kids have failed miserably at this point. Hope he sticks around!

    Is the schedule getting easier in the near future? This year, are you expecting more than 6 wins? Is this years team better than last years team?

    I'm still sticking with my original statement that ISU is trending up, while negligible, still up (at least over the past 10 years in their overall w/l record, not conference record).

    No, certainly not. I guess I was thinking recruiting since that's what Trollblood's maiden voyage is about. Not to turn this into an actual thread but it would be interesting to see if Paul is indeed trending up with regard to recruiting. If that's even quantifiable?...
