    Worst Iowa State Team Ever?

    This year's team is bad. I'm thinking historically bad. What years were worse?

    2003 without a doubt. I do not care that they won 2 games that year, they were awful. No chemistry, nothing.

    Is this really Neccasary?

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    This team is probably worse than the Chizik squads.

    Worse than 2007. Probably equivalent to 2008 as of now.

    This, I didn't follow ISU closely until 2000 but 2003 was horrible. We are more talented than that team.

    The question was focused on outcomes of games not player attitudes/chemistry.

    There have been some pitiful losses this year.

    Re: Worst Iowa State Team Ever?

    People have short memories.

    2008 was far worse. 2003 was far worse. Most of the 90s was far worse.

    The Texas meltdown sent this season down the crapper. We win that game things are different IMO. That loss was just too much and the difference between 1-3 and 2-2 is huge.

    You must also have a short memory - The UNI game sent this season down the crapper.

    I guess you can have a similar argument for 2008. Almost beat a ranked Kansas team at home (up 20-0 at half and lost by 2). After that the season went down the crapper. I can't say for sure this team is better than 2008 right now.

    Re: Worst Iowa State Team Ever?

    I'd prefer to wait until season's end, but — if we're extrapolating, I'll add 1984 and 1979 to the potential list.

    Re: Worst Iowa State Team Ever?

    No, many were worse. As a 70's grad, I can remember a number of teams that weren't even fun to follow. I still hunker down on the couch with optimism around this squad. Other than the Baylor game, each week has given me positive vibes prior to the rug being pulled out.
    Bad teams don't give you that.

    That's funny cause I feel this way about our current team.
