    I dont mind the 11 AM's, but Id prefer 2 or less each season.

    Your comment does sound really bad, but not for the reason you think.

    I don't mind the 11 am games so much. What I don't like are the late November Night Games. IMO, prefer no November Night games, but especially not after the first or second week in November.

    I don't know, it worked out pretty well one time.

    Wow dude, seriously?

    I don't like the 11am games, but that's strictly for selfish reasons because that's 6am where I live.

    I have no clue what he means by real football (maybe a soccer fan?), but he has a point though- if you kick-off at 11:00, you are mostly going against Big 10 games.

    Just wanted to throw out that he isn't one of us soccer fans, most of those games are in the morning.

    CPR has had 1 season over .500, it's not one bad season. ISU fans are absolutely awesome, maybe too good at some points. I sure hope ISU gets to a great spot in football where bowl games are expected every year and a 10 win season comes sometimes. (I think 2015 we will compete for the Big 12.) Things would be absolutely great in Central Iowa when this happens.

    Rhoads has had one bad season by Iowa State standards. We are not anywhere near the place where a bowl season is a bad season for Iowa State. It's just not.

    Iowa State has won 9 games once, 8 games a couple of times, 7 games a couple of times and that's it. So 6 wins and a bowl game is a good season for Iowa State. If you can't accept that, then you need to rethink it.
