    4-8 (2-7) makes sense ... 5-7 (3-6) is my guess ... interesting how Athlon bumped ISU up a notch over WVU because of Mangino hire.

    Love the Athlon Big 12 Preview magazine. These guys really do their homework.

    I have a feeling this team will be hungry and will do better than anyone thinks, IMO.

    I know the fans are hungry, yet those 11am games are pretty early.

    Re: Five questions (Cyclones, Big 12) w/ an Athlon editor

    I liked Athlon's point that ISU will be stronger toward the end of the year, after having learned the Mangino attack. That could be even more true for the defense, given few returning starters. As fans, we will have to watch for signs of progress in the early going, and keep that candle of hope aflame. The winds of November may just find this program in turnaround mode.

    Re: Five questions (Cyclones, Big 12) w/ an Athlon editor

    I also liked the fact that Athlon said our bowl hopes depends on how we do in the Iowa game. Didn't just right the game off as a loss as our friends in Iowa City want to do.


    Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.

    Whenever an opposing team's coach is kf, that means you got a good chance to win that game.

    Why do some of you guys feel a need to pollute a thread about ISU by talking about that other team?

    Nice article, Chris. I've gotten a lot of enjoyment out of that Athlon Big XII annual this year.

    Because the guy I was responding to was referring to the Iowa-ISU game this year that was discussed in the article.

    Paul's seat should be hot at 4-8.

    It would be if he was anywhere else. Since Jamie hired him, I think he's bullet proof through this year. Hope Paul is investing his money wisely. He'll never get a job that pays this well again.
