    Season over before September

    Since the ISU football season is over before September, will you watch with the same excitement? I will watch ISU games because I like ISU. If you are questioning me, yes the season is over. Before the 2014 season started, 63 FBS teams lost to FCS schools. Of those 63, only 7 made a bowl game. Recently that was Michigan, VA Tech and K-State. If you think ISU belongs in the same breath with those teams you are delusional.

    Did Rhoads hire his replacement by bringing Mangino on staff? I think there is a good chance of that. Do you think there are any other FBS coaches that lost to FCS teams in years 5 and 6 and are still employed? Look that up and let me know your thoughts. Heck how many FBS schools have lost back to back years against FCS schools?

    Can we also admit Sam Richardson is not a winning quarterback? Doesn't Rohach have more wins than Richardson in many fewer games? Remember, Richardson came in for Jantz again KU in 2012 so he did not start.

    How long until basketball?

    (PS don't give me Farniok crap. He is a freaking center and did not give up 34 straight points.)

    Seems like Sam might be a practice warrior.

    I will watch because I guess I'm a glutton for punishment.

    However, if we lose the next couple, I very well might just go golfing on Saturday's instead. I learned a long time ago that Saturday's in the fall, especially when ISU football is terrible, is a great time to golf. The courses over here eastern Iowa are dead on Saturday's because all the Hawk fans are watching Iowa. It's great.

    Anyone brining up that Sam didn't start at KU like it supports their argument is not to be taken seriously.

    Re: Season over before September

    I agree, the season is essentially over already at this point. Sucks to have the two consecutive seasons end on opening weekend, but here we are. Again this year I don't need to save any PTO for a bowl trip, as that is definitely not happening.

    Just like last year, I'll go to all the home games because I already have the tickets. Not going to let them go to waste. But I get to go to them without any butterflies in my stomach, the "what ifs" wondering what kind of post-season implications each game may have while on my drive to Ames. Wondering who will step up and make the big plays to get the team over the edge and secure the win. None of that matters the rest of the season as it's already a lost cause.

    Sure would like to get those feelings back within the next few years. After 10 years of season tickets, I'm seriously considering not renewing next year. Contrary to what some members of the local media believe, the south end zone project will have no bearing at all on my decision to renew or forgo season tickets next year. The stadium will NOT sell me for next season. The rest of these games this season will make that determination. If we don't see some serious improvement from here on out, my decision will become much easier.

    Sam is a great runner. Unfortunately, we need to get the ball to our receivers. Yes, the football season just got a who lot less interesting.

    Sam is a pretty decent quarterback when he has time to throw the ball (first quarter).

    Re: Season over before September

    I just don't understand why we can't pass the damn ball. Even a couple seconds should be enough to get off a pass for at least a slant. I don't ******* get it. **** it all.


    Just Win.

    If you think this loss was on Sam then you clearly are very bad at watching football.

    Didn't say that. You are clearly bad at reading posts.

    That's the saddest part of all. You wait 9 months and every thing is gone in a matter of hours.
