    Re: Big XII Football

    This league is bad. It's horrible timing for us. Our team last year, as offensively challenged as we were, would have a shot at 8-9 wins against this schedule.

    Instead we'll be lucky to go 3-9

    Wofford was ranked 4th in FCS and Baylor beat them 69-3. UNI was ranked 19th in FCS and we lost 28-20. We couldn't come close to putting those numbers on Wofford or Buffalo. Ohio St only put up 40 on Buffalo last week.

    Lot of denial in this thread about the strength of Baylor.

    Re: Big XII Football

    Who cares if the conference sucks? Strength of schedule simply doesn't matter as long as you are in a BCS conference as the Big 10 has shown many times. It would be nice to rack up 8-9 wins in a bad conference and look a lot better than we really are (Iowa). Unfortunately, we seem to be in rebuilding mode along with everyone else.

    Baylor's 2 opponents so far are way, way worse than UNI. They always put up huge stats against terrible teams. They wont be much different than they were last year. However they will likely win more as the conference is definitely easier this year.

    We all love the Cyclones on this site but stop drinking the kool aid. this team cannot score on pretty much anyone. We were lucky last year to pile up points on KU. We put up 13 on KU at home the year before.

    We've only played one game. I hope the team isn't crying about it like that.

    Wofford is considered a better FCS team than UNI. Buffalo was within a few points of tOSU last week in the 4th quarter. Neither team are world beaters, but they are arguably better than UNI and Tulsa. There is no way we would even come close to putting up those types of numbers against them.

    Sorry to pile on but what have you seen from Messingham's abilities that makes you think ISU could do this? is it the 16 points he averages in the first half or the 8 points he averages in the second half?
