    Be average or better at offensive 3 and out's. 49% of the time we could not get a single first down last year.

    Have a positive turnover ratio. Adding to that, score a few TD's with defensive turnovers. We have done a pretty good job with this, but I'd like to see us take them to the house more often.

    Not get bit with the injury bug.

    Upset with 3 wins, expect 4, happy with 5.

    Win a bowl game, much improved offense, improved defense, competitive into the 4th quarter of every game.

    Hearing Sweet Caroline at the end of each home game, and at each away game too if someone's got the boom box!


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    1. Being competetive in every game. Enough with the blowouts.
    2. Not being hosed by the refs a la the "non-fumble"

    Re: What will make you happy this year??

    No more than one demoralizing blowout. Losing is one thing, it's the constant blowouts that really take the enjoyment out of following a team for an entire season.

    2013 at a glance:
    71-7
    58-27
    41-7
    48-10

    I would also throw the UNI and Iowa games into the discussion as we didn't belong on the same field as our opponent for the majority of those contests. That's half of a season's worth of more or less unwatchable football. Less of this would be a welcomed positive step.

    Re: What will make you happy this year??

    Gonna get specific in here:

    30 ppg avg. (Last time was like '76 or something like that)
    3000 yd passer (Only once, Seneca '02)
    1000 yd rusher (Arob '09)
    1000 yd receiver (Blythe '05)
    One offensive player in the top 10 in big 12 in scoring (hasn't happened since Ryan Kock in '05)
    5 offensive players with 5 or more touchdowns

    Greater than 25 sacks on D (Last time was '05)
    Greater than 30 takeaways on D (Last time was '09, Nebraska game helped a lot)

    Obviously these don't necessarily equate to wins but would all be steps in the right direction for the program.

    Are you requiring all of those or just one? If it's all, I'd just fast forward to December with your attitude set as disappointed if I were you.

    Same standard as every year, I'll be happy if we make a bowl. Don't care too much how exactly get there.

    Re: What will make you happy this year??

    These are a bit repetitive, but:

    - Play hard; play with passion; play with a swagger
    - Have an identity on both sides of the ball
    - Creativity in play calling (on both sides of the ball)
    - HIT SOMEBODY GETTING OFF THE ******* BUS
