    I expect that as well. Hopefully mother nature isn't on her rag again. That certainly would help as well. About 100 degrees for home game #1 UNI and -15 for KU last home week of the year? Bleh.

    Re: what are you expectations for this season?

    Really, I just want to see steady improvement as the season progresses in order to set us up for next season. Four wins is what I expect, but wouldn't be surprised if it is 2 or 5. Six wins would surprise me.

    Not trying to be a downer, I just understand the history of this program. Would love to see history re-written!

    I'm going 3-5. Not sure what option to pick there.

    There will be a lot of excitement for MBB after the preseason game. Nuff said.

    Hoping for undefeated...but expecting less than that. Regardless, we will be in the stands cheering.

    I expect 4 wins...won't be happy, but realistically, that's the most I see. Would be ecstatic if we could get to 6.

    Re: what are you expectations for this season?

    With the big coaching shake-ups and potential impact players both leaving and joining the team, I honestly have no expectations for the year. I'm sure once we get into the middle of the summer I'll start playing the schedule game, but right now all I'm asking for is some decent weather and competitive games.

    While that would normally be the case for most schools, the fact is that CPR is the best coach we could ask for or hope to realistically get. Yeah I get the BS about you have to shoot for the stars, but this is a very difficult school to win at in football and as much as I hate to think 7 wins is our very occasional peak, the reality is that most years we're probably going to sit at 4-5, maybe 6 wins with outlier years at 3 and 7 wins.

    Being a realist doesn't make me complacent or a bad fan, it just means I've lived long enough to know what we're up against, what we can bring in for players and coaches, and what our competition is like. I'm as big of ISU homer as there is, but at my core I'm a realist and despite how much I love to see people think our ceiling is much higher, it just isn't.

    Just about any coach you bring in is going to have some level of immediate success, but you can't keep switching coaches for those few good years the initial excitement brings. Do I like winning 3-5 games a year, no, but that's why I think our only long-term chance to improve is to have consistency and try new things using assistant coaches (ie Mangino).


    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    I didn't know that was a fact.

    Re: what are you expectations for this season?

    I'm going to go with 3. We just don't have the players to compete against teams in the big 12. They need some time to develop, whats sad though is even when they develop our ceiling is like 7 wins at most...ahh being an ISU football fan. Hopefully we get a good upset this year though.

    I think our offense has the talent to get us 6 wins....I just hope our defense can be at least half way decent. I want 6 wins.


    Just Win.

    That's what last year lacked was the signature CPR upset. I'd love to take out a highly-rated Oklahoma, Texas or Baylor this year. The fan base really needs a boost of energy again. Ever since the end of the first quarter of the Liberty Bowl, there hasn't been much to cheer about.
