    Out of that list, the only team I feel somewhat confident that we could beat would be Duke. That's the ONLY one. The rest would be either toss-ups or sure losses. Yes, it is THAT bad right now.

    Re: Just how bad are we?

    The way Duke almost beat Miami last week it may be a stretch to say we would beat even them. It really saddens me to say but much like 2003 we may be the worst team in D1 college football.

    I think we'll probably get honorable mention for this week's Bottom 10 list from ESPN.

    They were already talking us on ESPN before the game as being one of the top 5 disappointments of the year.

    Just how bad are we? I'd put money on curing AIDS and Cancer before I'd put money on Coach McCarney winning the Big 12 North, making a bowl game worth a crap, or getting a top 30 recruiting class. Note to Dan for his next job. When recruiting it's not like golf! The more stars the player has next to his name means he is better than the crap you usually go after. Instead of going for 2 star or 3 stars go after 4 and 5 stars and maybe you'll do a little better at your next. Thank you for getting ISU where you did but goodbye!

    We're bad... the players and coaches don't think they can win... they have no confidence.

    Re: Just how bad are we?

    how bad? pretty bad. mac wasn't even on the hot seat coming into this season. I now give him at best a 30% chance of being around next year.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
