    Peterson: Cyclones won't finish ninth

    Didn't see a link posted yet.

    He's more optimistic than many of us, record-wise:

    I've got news for you: Cyclones won't finish 9th

    Re: Peterson: Cyclones won't finish ninth

    If the transfer defensive players are as good as we've been told ... if Mark Mangino is still Mangenius ... if center Tom Farniok doesn't miss games because of injury ... then expect a Return of the Upset.
    I think the first on the list is a big if, but he is right. Bowl eligibility is definitely attainable.

    Will I be surprised if ISU gets 6 wins? No. Do I expect it? Sadly, no.

    Pretty bold to say this team will be the first to win 4 Big 12 games.

    The first game will be really big. Just ask Lakes.

    Re: Peterson: Cyclones won't finish ninth

    Petersen could be right because I think some of the teams could be down this year.

    There were a lot of IF's that went the wrong way last year.

    Re: Peterson: Cyclones won't finish ninth

    Ah, it's that time of year again where the media puts out an optimistic prediction and the fanbase gathers unreasonable expecations for the season, and then call for CPR's head once we only get 5 wins.

    But in all seriousness, Peterson brings up some good points and 6 wins is definitely possible. I'm thinking 4-5, but 6 shouldn't be out of the question.

    Re: Peterson: Cyclones won't finish ninth

    Heck, we should end the season on a four game run.

    Those last 4 are as easy of a schedule as there is.

    Otherwise PR should be run out on a rail and the Hamburgler will be installed.

    Which teams? Other than Tech and Baylor slightly, I can't think of any.
