Until they can score points, they are among the worst QB's in the conference.

    We have three head coach quality coaches on our team in Burnham, Rhoads, and Mangino. No more excuses. I don't care if they have injuries next year. You make it happen.
    I don't think our previous OC helped our QB's. In fact, he blamed them for the shortcomings of the offense rather than take responsibility himself.

    IMO, the OC can put players in a position to play to their strengths rather than ask them to do things that are beyond their physical capabilities. That is where coaching comes into play. Being able to make lemonade from lemons.

    We saw it in Gus Malzahn and Auburn who went from 3 wins under Chizik to the National Championship game.

    Prior to Mangino 4 or 5 wins - with Mangino 5 or 6 wins.

    That's what I was going to say. But who knows, I thought we'd be bowl eligible this year

    Meh. I was going with maybe 3 or 4 wins for 2014. Now I'm at 4 or 5. Doubt we'll be bowl eligible.

    Re: updated expectations for next yr?

    I'm thinking worst case 4 wins, best case 7 wins

    Re: updated expectations for next yr?

    IMO, the addition of Mangino is worth at least 1 or 2 wins more than we would have had otherwise.

    Re: updated expectations for next yr?

    6 wins is the over/under...but 7 is more likely than 5.

    I hope we stroll into iowa city at 2-0. The CyHawk game could be a great one this year.

    Not to mention beating Bill Snyder!

    Re: updated expectations for next yr?

    Most likely- 4 or 5 wins.

    Best case- 6 wins IMO.

    Anyone thinking more than 6 wins is just delirious IMO. The OL was pretty bad this year, and will still be pretty unproven next year. QB is still a big question mark. And defense was bad this year, and won't get much better next year either IMO. Sorry, those are the facts. We all know it.

    I'm just hoping we can get past NDSU. If not, 3 wins or less could happen again. I said last year that UNI would be no picnic, and of course was ripped on here for doubting the beloved Cyclones. Well, we saw how that worked out for us.

    Even after the UNI game there were some people still drinking the cardinal and gold kool aid for some reason, but we all saw how that worked out too. And now, just because we hire Mark Mangino as the OC, there are people on here claiming 7+ wins all of the sudden. Do we not learn? We constantly set ourselves up with high expectations, only to be let down.

    6 wins would be a great year next year.

    Just score more points and the chips will fall into place. I just want improvement from the train wreck last year.

    Some of these predictions are kind of out there, just don't be ****** if it does not happen.

    There are people that would be "*****" no matter what they predicted.
