    2008 Schedule and Records...

    Here's a look at Iowa State's opponents in football in 2008.

    South Dakota State: 7-4 (lost to UNI, beat North Dakota State)
    Kent State: 3-9 (unfortunately, Iowa State was one of three)
    Iowa: 6-6 (we play them in Iowa City after 2 easy games for them)
    UNLV: 2-10 (I assumed they had a better record than that)
    Kansas: 12-1 (can we play with them?)
    Baylor: 3-9 (makes our recruiting look like Notre Dame)
    Nebraska: 5-7 (can we finally knock off the mighty Huskers?)
    AandM: 7-6 (no easy task to beat them)
    Oklahoma State: 7-6 (ditto)
    Colorado: 6-7 (toss up game, but at their home)
    Mizzou: 12-2 (high expectations, will they pan out?)
    Kansas State: 5-7 (either they go up, or the Prince is out)

    Can we get our six plus wins here? Should have a decent shot at it.

    We have an excellent chance to get 6 wins. There is a SLIGHT chance if everything falls ISU's way that they could end up with 7 or 8 wins. Hopefully everything will go the Cyclone's way next and get the opportunity to go to a good bowl game.

    I think next year really depends on how quickly we settle in with a new QB - whoever that is.

    Re: 2008 Schedule and Records...

    With how the team finished the the second half of last season, and with Arnaud's pretty good playing when he was on the field, you get a good feeling going into next year. But at this point in time it is really impossible to tell how next year will go. For me it is hard to get a grasp of how the season might go until preseason is over.

    Re: 2008 Schedule and Records...

    Here is my preliminary record...

    Thu, Aug 28 South Dakota State Ames, Iowa TBA - WIN
    Sat, Sep 06 Kent State Ames, Iowa TBA - WIN
    Sat, Sep 13 Iowa at Iowa City, Iowa TBA - WIN
    Sat, Sep 20 UNLV at Las Vegas, Nev. TBA - WIN
    Sat, Oct 04 Kansas * Ames, Iowa TBA - LOSE
    Sat, Oct 11 Baylor * at Waco, Texas TBA - WIN
    Sat, Oct 18 Nebraska * Ames, Iowa TBA - LOSE
    Sat, Oct 25 Texas A&M * Ames, Iowa TBA - LOSE
    Sat, Nov 01 Oklahoma State * at Stillwater, Okla. TBA - LOSE
    Sat, Nov 08 Colorado * at Boulder, Colo. TBA - WIN
    Sat, Nov 15 Missouri * Ames, Iowa TBA - LOSE
    Sat, Nov 22 Kansas State * at Manhattan, Kan. TBA - LOSE


    Out of all that - I see two of the wins that we could lose but I also see two of the losses that we could win. In my opinion, we could have anywhere from 4 to 8 wins at the flip of a coin. Because I don't think our new coaching staff is going to allow us to be disappointed nearly as much as we've come to be use to, I say we win 6, but quite possibly 7. Let's face it - ISU has always underachieved in football and I have the belief that those days might finally be nearing an end.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Our only disadvantage for that game will be the fact that Iowa will have played in two Superbowls already that season. It is amazing how they can get up for that many big games every year.

    We have got to be at least 3-1 going into conference play to have a chance at 6 IMO.

    Thu, Aug 28 South Dakota State Ames, Iowa TBA - Should Win
    Sat, Sep 06 Kent State Ames, Iowa TBA - Should Win
    Sat, Sep 13 Iowa at Iowa City, Iowa TBA - ?
    Sat, Sep 20 UNLV at Las Vegas, Nev. TBA - Should Win
    Sat, Oct 04 Kansas * Ames, Iowa TBA - Should Lose
    Sat, Oct 11 Baylor * at Waco, Texas TBA - Should Win
    Sat, Oct 18 Nebraska * Ames, Iowa TBA - ?
    Sat, Oct 25 Texas A&M * Ames, Iowa TBA - ?
    Sat, Nov 01 Oklahoma State * at Stillwater, Okla. TBA - ?
    Sat, Nov 08 Colorado * at Boulder, Colo. TBA - ?
    Sat, Nov 15 Missouri * Ames, Iowa TBA - ?
    Sat, Nov 22 Kansas State * at Manhattan, Kan. TBA - ?

    I'd say count on 4 solid Ws, 2 solid Ls with 6 that could go either way. 6-6 is reasonable, but so is 4-8.

    I agree with your analysis of the games. I wish we got KU a little later after their losses to Texas and Oklahoma. They may be a one hit wonder.
