    Our record does not matter this year

    Relax people. We have a disciplined team. We have a well coached team. We are young, but we do not give up. We beat Texas, we hung with the #20 team on the road, no matter how ugly it was, if Broomy hauls in that onside kick then who knows what could have happened. Nigel Tribune is getting some very valuable PT against some of the best WRs in the Big 12. That will pay off, just watch.

    Exactly. The record won't be great, but we're not far away.
    This year won't be pleasant, because losing records stink, but it will pay off.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Agreed!! People need to just relax if you ask me. Too much negativity on here today.

    It will still matter, but I get what you're trying to say.

    Re: Our record does not matter this year

    I'm at the point (and have been for many, many years now) where Ws make the season a lot more fun, but regardless, ISU is my team. No matter what the record, I'm going to pull up a chair and watch all the games I can. There's a lot to get excited for believe it or not. Next year will be much more fun.

    Yeah but it sucks seeing this kind of season for some of our seniors. I don't wanna see George go out on a bad note.

    Re: Our record does not matter this year

    We need 3-4 more wins to end the season with momentum. Next year I think anything less than 8 wins will be a disappointment with the schedule more favorable and the experienced roster.

    Re: Our record does not matter this year

    Bigger concern is the oline missed a lot of assignments. How can you get better if you cannot block worth beans?

    Re: Our record does not matter this year

    4 losses all by a TD or less. That says a lot. There is talent, but not the execution yet. I hate to say this, and they are not great this year, but look at Iowa last year compared to this. Close losses and turned around and are a having a better season this year. I think we win 3 this year, and turn it around next year.

Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    I was talking about the Oline. Did any seniors play on the Oline?

    If you want to talk about seniors on D missing tackles than I will not talk to you about. I am too angry about it.

    I am sure our recruits don't think ISU's record matters either.

    It blows chunks for us as fans. It hurts like a SOB, but I think this team is slowing building. Maybe I am an idiot and we look like **** next year and until I die. But if my experience as a Cubs fan has taught me anything, if I give up hope, then my life as a fan is dead and gone and I might as well join a bandwagon and cheer for the goddamn Cardinals.
