    2007 season..coulda, shoulda, woulda

    Iowa State was not that far from a strong first season. No, I haven't been drinking.

    Kent State: Meyer interception at 8 yard line turned game
    Northern Iowa: Punt fumbled gave momentum to NI
    Toledo: ISU had game won, total meltdown
    Nebraska: Interception stopping a scoring drive for a 93 yard TD turned the game
    Four very possible wins there.
    Add wins over:
    Iowa
    CU
    K State

    Solid losses to:
    Texas Tech
    Mizzou
    Texas
    KU

    It would have been possible to have seven wins..(I know we could have also lost to Iowa and CU for a one win season)

    Actually, ISU played very well at Missouri, we lost by 14, Meyers fumble for a MU TD was bad. I'm not saying we would have won, but ISU played very well that day and never gave up.

    I agree, ISU could have easily won 5 or 6 games.

    I'd contend we lost the UNI game on our opening drive, when Meyer threw an interception in the end zone after we had a very strong drive.

    I knew we were in serious trouble when that pass was picked off.

    Oklahoma? 17-7 was much better than the Texas thrashing

    And the coulda-shoulda-woulda could easily go the other way for the Iowa and CU games.

    Re: 2007 season..coulda, shoulda, woulda

    that last quote said it perfectly. we could have had 7 wins in Gene Chizik's first year...which woulda been nuts! but we also could have had 1 win too just like KF's first year if i am not mistaken. I hope we make some overall improvements and another year under a young up and coming, inspiring coach with guys getting used to his system(s) and combined with a less murderous schedule we should definitely be in the + column for wins compared to last year. Just need to avoid the toledo-esque meltdowns of old.

    Never know, it could matter to her. Sounds like the makings of a good time.

    I still don't know how we lost Toledo. I watched on Clonezone and couldn't sleep that night.

    In perfect and typical ISU fashion, we found a way to lose.
