    Quick 5 year review of our football program...

    So as this is my 5th year in college, as well as my fifth football season, thought I would do a little review of our records against Big 12 teams, in the last 5 years.

    Colorado- 1-3, with one game remaining
    Nebraska- 2-3
    Kansas State- 2-3
    Kansas 2-3
    Missouri 1-3, with one game remaining

    Oklahoma 0-3
    Oklahoma State- 1-1
    Texas 0-3
    Baylor 1-1
    Texas A&M 1-1
    Texas Tech 1-2

    So, at seasons end, we will have a losing record in the past 5 years to just about every team in the Big 12 (we have .500 records against A&M, Baylor, and Oklahoma State.) Kind of sad when you think about that. Its also sad to think that even if we would have been the team we all hoped we would be this year, that at best we could of had winning records against Nebraska, Kansas, Kansas State, and Texas Tech, but only by 1 game for each of them. Oh and by the way, against other teams we have played more then once in the past 5 years, we are 2-3 against Iowa, and 1-1 against Northern Illinois. However, on the bright side of things, we are 3-0 against UNI! We are also 1-2 in bowl games.

    Re: Quick 5 year review of our football program...

    The interesting part about this analysis is that everyone talks about how great the last five years are and how many bowls we have been to. The last exciting bowl we went to was the Insight bowl.

    I've been to Shrevport and went to Houston last year and was mildly disappointing. Not having a winning record against even one team (not even Baylor) is a telling fact.

    Awesome post. And one that you need to either print out and send to Pollard via mail...or email to him.

    I am sure he knows some of the previous records, but this one is good and needs to be on his table ASAP.

    Excellent post...great data.

    Very sobering too. Even the guy that closes down the bars 7 days a week would walk straight after reading this.

    Re: Quick 5 year review of our football program...

    So adding that up....

    12-25 vs. the Big 12 in the last 5 years.

    Anyone get the feeling...maybe we didn't deserve to be playing in bowl games the past few years? Or...the real question/statment...there are far too many bowls.

    Re: Quick 5 year review of our football program...

    Another good one to add to this, we are 1-2 in bowl games, with the chance to go to a 4th one this year (LOL) and possibly win (LOLx5) to have a .500 record in bowl games in the past 5 years.

    Another thing that get me everytime McCarney brings it up, is how we have gone to 5 bowl games in the past 6 years. But if this were college football of 20 years ago, where there were not as many bowl games, we might have gone to 1 bowl game if we were lucky, and that was in 2000. The only reason ISU is going to more bowl games then they did before is because there are way more bowl games then there ever was before, giving teams with .500 records or better to get one!

    Re: Quick 5 year review of our football program...

    I for one am getting very tired of Mac trotting out the "5 bowls in the last 6 years" horse at every opportunity. If ISU was such a powerhouse that had reached the mythical "next level" due to its bowl game appearance record, then why is it that we are staring a conference 0-fer right in the face THIS year? I would be interested in seeing how many other programs with a stellar "5 bowls in the last 6 years" reputation are face down in the mud like ISU is. Mac is a helluva guy who has improved the quality of our program, but now he playing the last card in his deck. No one gives an fat Aunt Fanny about last year, the year before that, or the last six years when we have to suffer through the embarrassment that we are watching unfold this year.

    True DAT! I have always said McCarney tried to cover up his coaching flaws with past accomplishments. I for one do not give a rats *** about what we have done in the past, I care about right now and what is going on with the current season!

    Re: Quick 5 year review of our football program...

    I would venture to guess that Baylor, maybe even Kansas, are the only other team in the Big 12 that can claim this embarassment, as of right now.

    Or that we continue to wreck UNI's football season?

    Another fact...The Big 12 North has sucked the last few years. Imagine if KSU, Colorado and Nebraska were in the top 15. We would have been throttled big time. So instead of 31-7, it would have been 67-3.

    I've been saying that for a while now. As a rebuttle against the Mac lovers who said he's done so much for us. Had those teams still been what they were in the 90s, we definitely wouldn't hvae gone to bowls 5 out of 6 years. All I give Mac credit for is not making us as bad as we used to be and putting some excitement into the program. I also like to throw aTm in there also because that's another team we've played over the last 6 years that is but a shell of it's former self.

    Absolutely the Big 12 North has not been anything to brag and we still could not win it.

    Look at the quality of the bowl games we have been to. Come on. How about that great game at Boise and how we got our butts handed to us!
