    Re: Top 10 ISU Stories

    Would the announcement of Gene Chizik as the new head football coach be top ten material?

    Edit: remembered he was announced in 2006, my bad on that one - man this year has gone fast.

    7 out of 10.
    Iowa goes 6-6 without playing Michigan or tOSU.
    ISU goes 3-9 with losses to Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Missouri, Texas Tech.

    Can we please stop calling it an upset every time we beat Iowa? They are not better than us.

    When you're a double digit underdog, and you win that game, yes, that's considered an upset. Sure, it's not that big of an upset in hindsight, but if Iowa beats us when we're favored by more than 10 points, that will be considered an upset, too.


    Go Sssssssssyclones!

    In our first two games we lost to Kent and UNI at home by a DOUBLE DIGIT average. It was a huge upset.

    Re: Top 10 ISU Stories

    Argh... I suppose you guys are right.

    I do seem to remember being, um, less than optimistic about our chances at kickoff.

    In hindsight, it doesn't look like much of an upset, but on that day I guess it was.

    My apologies <insert temporarily unavailable embarrased face here>

    Carry on, everyone....
