    I fully know how frustrated you are. I spiked my tv remote after a few too many.

    Yeah, but it doesn't fit his agenda.

    This is the first year I really have no idea what to expect. Even CPR'S first year the schedule led me to think we'd be "improved."

    I guess I just want to see some of that gap close. It starts on the offensive side of the ball. One thing that has been a constant problem is the offense's inability to ever buy the defense time to recover. The d gives up a drive, and their right back out there after the offense goes 3 and out. It has turned a lot of games into ugly blowouts in a matter of 7 minutes of game time.

    That's a start, we'll go from there.

    I believe that was 2012 home opener 2012 against Tulsa.

    That would be good. Build an actual home field advantage so fans can expect wins, or feel like they affect/motivate the team to victory. Losing at home does wonders in the wrong direction.

    I'd like to see ISU fans get the stick out of their arse and embrace the Mangino jokes, it was fine when he was KU but now we're sensitive about it?

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    I want to see a strong offensive line, both run and pass blocking.

    That's the fulcrum that opens everything else up, on both offense and defense.

    Yeah, I think you're right.... thanks.

    It boggles the mind some of the things we've witnessed offensively on this team over the last few years. Running our QB to death against UNI and not exploiting Iowa's weak secondary last year rank right up there.

    I want to see offense. How many 3 and outs were there last year?

    I think I lost count sometime during the 3rd quarter against UNI.

    No embarrassments like Baylor last year.
    6 wins, since I am expecting only 2-3. Would love to be wrong.
    I think we can win 4 games...2 non conf and 2 conference games......

    That's my prediction as well.

    I think our offense will be improved enough to win us one more game this year even though our defense will likely be worse. If the defense is better than I think and surprises me, we could win 5 games IMO. I don't see how we can get to 6 wins though?

    We'd have to beat.... NDSU, Toledo, KU, WV, TCU.... and then either KSU or TT IMO. I don't see how we beat Iowa so early on in the season with new coaches all over our staff and our guys all having to learn so much. Plus it's at Iowa. KSU and TT are both in Ames.

    Technically, 7 wins is "possible", but we'd have to win basically every single "winnable" game on the schedule. That's tough to do.

    I'm counting on winning the two games against NDSU and Toledo, and then getting two more from the other 5 "winnable" games.

    I would be fine with 5 wins. Kind of sad, but true.

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    I want to see the offense have less than 1 turnover per game average. I want to see our freshman punter red shirt because we scored so much we never used him. (I want a lot.) I would love to see a 6-0 start followed by a 6-0 end to the regular season too.

    Improved o line play. Adequate d line play will be great. Proper play calling will make half the 1 TD losses into wins. I still see 5-6 wins if the oline plays like an experienced oline should with the proper plays called.


    Friends don't let friends wear black & gold. Build a man a fire, you keep him warm for a day. Set a man on fire, you keep him warm for the rest of his life. Set a hawkeye fan on fire, you make Iowa a better place to live.
