    CFN 2008 projections

    ISU at #63. I personally expect us to be better than that, at least in the top 50.

    It's better than where we started last year, at least.

    Re: CFN 2008 projections

    why would we be in the top 50? what have we done to placed there?

    honestly..... until we prove something we should be happy not to be in the 76-100 slot.

    I'm sure we will do better but I understand why they would rank the cyclones where they did.
    I did like to read this quote "but QB Austin Arnaud and RB Alexander Robinson are two of the Big 12's most exciting young players."

    I agree completely, we should have not been in the top 75. We have a lot of unknowns for next year. We don't know if Arnaud is a Big XII caliber QB, we don't know if A-Rob can handle the load by himself. We have to replace Banks and Bowen at LB. I am optimistic but I know a lot can happen.

    I think we will do okay and make a low level bowl game. Independence or something like that.

    You misunderstand me. I totally think their ranking is fair, 100%. I think we will be better than that however.

    So what you're saying is you're fine with the #63 ranking, but by the end of the season you expect us to be in the top 50?

    At this point, Cyclones, when expected to win, seem to not meet expectations.

    Better to be under the radar, with limited expecctiaotns and greatly increase upside potential.

    Motiviation is better

    Re: CFN 2008 projections

    I think we'll win 5 or 6 games this year. If we played like with did at the end of the year for a whole season we should be just fine.

    Re: CFN 2008 projections

    I think its interesting that Iowa is ranked 38th. Have they done anything to put them so high up?
