    7-0 to start...

    ...the 2009 season.

    NDakotaS - W
    Iowa - W
    Kent State - W
    Army - W
    K State - W
    Kansas - W Lose a lot of seniors
    Baylor - W
    Nebraska - ? We should be ahead of them in rebuilding
    T A&M - ? Same thing
    Ok State - ? Tough one
    Colorado - ? Hawkins might have them in first place
    Missouri - ? If we played them early, I would give us a win because they're bringing in a new QB.


    Possible to win 10-11 games. Texas and Oklahoma off the schedule again. Should have an experienced, and dominating OL. A TON of talent at the skill positions (Bo, Austen, Phillip, Sed, J Carlson, A Rob, Schwartz, Hamilton, Darks, Harper, Franklin, Lonzie Range and don't forget Tiller). I can't ever remember being that loaded all over the field. I know most still have to prove themselves though.

    I really don't have any doubts about our defense with Chizik in charge. Could be the year we get on the map again. Actually, it NEEDS to be the year since we will have Texas and Oklahoma in '10.

    Disclaimer:
    I'm definately not saying they will win 10-11 games. I'm saying there's a chance. I predict 8-9 wins. Just like this year I predict 4-5 wins, with a chance to get 6-7.

    I am going to make a predition that this thread will be linked in the future to prove that we have extreme expectations.

    SouthernHawk, here you go.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Wowsers... A 10 win season eh? That would be the most shocking thing that has ever happened in the history of Cyclone football.

    I like how this guys thinks. Hopefully the players back it up.

    I don't need to link it anywhere. There's nothing wrong with extreme predictions. Especially 2 years down the road.

    It's got as much as more validity than this does...

    Scout.com: Iowa will go 9-3 in 2008

    But let's see how this year goes first, ok?

    I'm not predicting 10-11 wins, more like 8-9 wins. I am realistic, but you would be crazy to say we don't have a good shot at every game.

    Some people say Iowa fans are crazy to say we have a shot at every game too.

    Crazies exist everywhere.

    The ridiculous predictions by some on this site make me think we're turning into the Hawks somedays...

    Re: 7-0 to start...

    Would anyone take a 10 win season in exchange for losing Chizk? Cause if we do win 10 games in his 2nd year, HE GONE!

    Re: 7-0 to start...

    I don't think the prediction is that bad. Chizik needs to get it done in year 3 with that easier schedule or he might be in some trouble here. Now starting 7-0 and possibly winning 10 games might be a stretch but we better win ATLEAST 7 in 2009.
