    5Dimes Line on SDSU @ Iowa State

    I was looking through a few websites this afternoon for some early lines on Week One CFB. Saw that we are only favored by eight points over SDSU. I didn't think that we would be 21 point favorites but to find out that we are favored by just over a touchdown doesn't speak too well of what the "experts" think about our squad. I hope they are wrong.

    Way to early to worry about that IMO

    I didn't think most odds makers even came up with a line on FBS vs. FCS or has that changed since Appalachian St. upended Michigan?

    Sounds about right to me. I still say that this game will be closer than we would like.

    Re: 5Dimes Line on SDSU @ Iowa State

    That line will obviously move prior to the game but I don't see us getting much more than 9-11 points.

    Re: 5Dimes Line on SDSU @ Iowa State

    That's a little lower than I was thinking, but I would have been shocked if it would have been higher than 121/2. Our quarterback situation is a big question mark for everyone outside of the Cyclone family.

    Re: 5Dimes Line on SDSU @ Iowa State

    Considering how we played against Illinois St. and UNI... 8 is generous.

    Re: 5Dimes Line on SDSU @ Iowa State

    Ahhh, losing to UNI by double figures...good times. Especially after what should have been a loss to them the previous season.

    Non-conference '06 and '07 - games I wish could be erased from memory.

    I think coach Chizik and the boys are gonna try & do something about that for you this year. (At least by giving you newer, better memories. I don't think they could erase those games from your C drive without doing some permanent damage.)

    Oh I dont doubt that they will make me smile several times this year and last year will dissipate. However 1st few games will be shakey while they find a groove.

    Re: 5Dimes Line on SDSU @ Iowa State

    I guess my issue is that so many people on this board have been discussing the possibility of 5-7 or 6-6. In looking at the conference season I find it very difficult to find more than three wins. The nature of our schedule is that most of the winnable games are on the road; which is always difficult in the Big 12. We cannot afford to lose to SDSU or Kent State or UNLV if we want to achieve that 5-7 or 6-6 record. My major issue is that a team that has aspirations of a bowl game should not have issues with a mid-level I-AA or FSC teams. UNI was a terrific team last year; SDSU is nowhere near them in talent.

    No so fast my friend...

    The worst Big XII team we play comes to Ames on October the 18th.

    Some of the not so big companies have posted lines in the past, but normally bodog and the other big wigs don't post them.


    41-53 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    (Takes gulp from Kool-Aid) We could, potentially, start off the Big XII season 3-1. We could beat Baylor, KnU, and aTm. Each of these schools have first-year coaches IIRC. We all remember how tough the beginning of the first year can be.

    3-1 non-conference + 3-1 to start in Big XII = 6 - 2.

    Surely there must be a law somewhere that this cannot happen.
