    Sorry. Negativity Train is at full-speed, so why not?

    Where's the poll at? 2005 vs. Illinois State was bad but at least we got the win.

    2006 vs. Toledo was horrible but at least we got the win.

    2007 vs. Kent State was a freaking nightmare. Think we gave them their first win vs. a BCS conference opponent ever. Terrible.

    Got to go with last night's game. With all the hype of the Pistol and the "fast" defense we basically got crapped on by an FCS team. Not a lot of positives from last night.

    Exactly. Program buzz killing loss is a fitting headline.

    Without question this was it. Packed house, high expectations and a great coach who is usually full of passion. The D played tough as butter in the first half and the offense seemed to wet the bed on a few key 2nd and 1 situations... That means that the fanbase had the passion and the coaches seemed to be hitting a day of work after a few days on the yacht. Oh, did we lose? The next two weeks are so key for the Cyclone football nation I have no words. This team needs to grow up fast. Sam can't carry the entire offense on his back and the D needs to toughen up especially in the presssure department. IMO.

    Expectations have never been higher. Had to be last night's game. Everyone knew it was going to be a very challenging game, but nobody expected to be thoroughly beaten in all aspects. Very hard to see the positives right now.

    Iowa Pre-Flight was the second rated team in the country in 1943. Can't see why that would be on the list

    I agree.

    In the superstitions thread I mentioned that watching the hit tape a bunch of times before a game was mine. And now it proves true :(

    It's part of being old but I don't believe the worst one is even on the list.

    University of Pacific. Period.

    That wasn't a season opener. Could very well be the worst loss of all time though. That or Drake in 85.

    Re: Poll: Worst season openers of all time

    Kent was bad but that was Chiz first loss. This is PR's fifth year and with our schedule, it was a must win to bowl. The mere fact how disheveled our operation looked against some local players, it was really a bad game. What was our oline and dline accomplishing all night? It looked like dirt track racing for the Panthers.
