    Kansas State is horrible

    I think it was a blessing for ISU that Prince was extended. I have moved the KSU game to a likely win from toss-up. They are slow on defense, and their offensive line is as bad as SDSU's. My updated schedule looks like this:

    UNLV = likely win
    Kansas = loss
    Baylor = toss-up
    Nebraka = toss-up
    aTm = likely win
    OSU = likely loss
    Colorado = likely loss
    Missouri = loss
    KSU = likely win

    In my mind, we have three likely wins left to get us to the 5 win mark which will make the season tolerable. All we need to do is win the Baylor or Nebraska game to go bowling and get to the expected 6 win mark. I thought KSU would be tough at Manhatten, but they are just plain poor. Good news for cyclone fans.

    Re: Kansas State is horrible

    I don't see a real "likely win" left on our schedule. But that's me.

    I see a couple games we should win - but it's actually likely we won't be favored to win a game from here on out.

    I would expect us to be favored against A&M but I guess that depends on how the rest of the season goes for them. I expect them to only have 2 wins when they come to Ames

    Re: Kansas State is horrible

    I totally concur...Istate

    the last 6 games ISU has played they have improved, where KSU has gone the other way, by the end of the season, I would expect ISU to continue to get better, KSU has not shown that capability to me.....

    Re: Kansas State is horrible

    Until we actually get a road win somewhere I don't think any of them should be "likely wins."

    Could be true - as you said - it all depends. As of right now, I think A&M would still be favored.

    But, my main point was about likely wins. A&M certainly isn't a likely win. We have a great shot at 'em though.

    Oh I agree with you. I just have seen people make that comment before so I was thinking about it. But yes, we don't have a likely win. Hard to have those when most people besides us expect us to lose

    I was shocked by their loss tonight, and they way they were gutted. Unreal.

    I think this is spot on. I said today, before this game, that they probably go 4-0, but MAYBE win 2 more games after that.

    Re: Kansas State is horrible

    K-State gained about half their total yards (156 or so) on their three touchdown passes, rushed for 29 yards, and gave up over 300 yards rushing and almost 600 total. Definitely winnable if we keep from giving up the big play.
