    Northwestern and Oregon State if you are truly taking a historical view.

    Either way, we are very well accustomed to the more than occasional nut kick.

    The good news is that in this day and age it doesn't matter as things can turn around quickly. Look what Snyder has done at ksu. If any college fball mind had to pick a top 25 best programs today ksu would be on the list. Winning erases all bad things.

    Name another program that has more hurdles to overcome than us in a major conference. The fact we are still here and with a packed house is pretty amazing.

    Re: Is it fair that ISU is on this list?

    Current record: 508-611

    I will live for about another 40 years. Assuming about 12 games a year with no bowl game. That means they would need to average more than 7.5 wins a year to break 0.500....

    :(

    (depressed face)

    **** it, I'll still watch'em.


    "I think that people are responding to someone standing up and saying this is what we want to do and let's not be afraid to go for it,'' Pollard said. "I think Iowa State has a very conservative, modest background. We never pound our chest and say `Let's do it.' It's OK to set a goal. You can't do it if you don't say what you want to do. You should be proud of it.''

    Re: Is it fair that ISU is on this list?

    I quit reading after the writer inferred that our basketball team is not a national power. If you want to reach back 100 years and evaluate a "program" based on the past, more power to you. I see the ISU football program going forward as a program on the rise. We're building the third biggest stadium in the Big 12, we have one of the best weight room/football faciltities in the nation, and we SELL OUT our football games. Many programs would kill to have that kind of support.

    So you'd rather have it 1/2-column wide pic, with header above, or else the photo below the summary?

    I could see the 1/2-column (so photo doesn't "give away" the ranking) but pic below the text, no way.
