    What will make you happy this year??

    What are one or two things (final record aside) that will make you a happy supporter of ISU football this year?

    To answer this question for myself I am torn between two things.


    • Beating Iowa in Iowa City and ruining their 10-0 pipe dream
    • The defense becoming a true group of Bad A**es that no one has ever heard of



    Will either of these happen ... who knows. But if they do I will be one happy camper.


    Smoke um if you got um

    Doesn't Iowa play 12 games?


    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives…..

    Lots of people saying they have a great chance to start 10-0 with the easy schedule, before they get Wisky. I assume he means ruin that.

    Re: What will make you happy this year??

    I'm not really sure. I usually go to each game hoping we can win, and if we lose I'm pretty bummed out. So, the more we win, the happier I'll be. Struggling to break into more detail.

    I'll be excited for next year if we keep our coaching staff and some young guys step up and play really well this season.

    Offense that scores a lot and a defense that prevents the other team scoring

    Re: What will make you happy this year??

    I'd love to witness another win over Oklahoma. I was only 10 the last time it happened.




    Thank you to Kagavi & amestoplease for the sweet designs!

    Bowl game would make me happy. If that doesn't happen a win over Oklahoma would make me happy. If that doesn't happen, a win over Iowa would make me happy. If that doesn't happen either, I hope we average 40+ points and look cool losing our games at least. Although, that won't make me happy.

    Improved scoring defense, improved scoring offense, fewer injuries, positive turnover margin, more sacks by our defense, and stay competitive in EVERY game. Oh...and beat the Hoks. Is that too much to ask?

    Re: What will make you happy this year??

    Wins is the obvious answer, but I'd be happy with being in a position to win after three quarters. Blowouts are really discouraging.

    And at the risk of sounding like a conspiracy fanatic, I'd also be happy with a game-deciding call going in our favor.
