    4th place in North

    I just realized that if we beat CU and KSU (both possible IMO) we could easily finish 4th in the division. CU still plays Okie State and Nebby. KSU plays Nebby and Missouri. Not what I want but beats heck out of last.

    Well if ISU wins out, Missouri loses out, Nebraska loses out; ISU can get 2nd in the North!

    Would be a great way to end the season. I hope the players are aware that they can still finish strong!

    While I'd love for this to happen, it'll be a sad day when a 5-7 team finishes 2nd in a BCS conference division.

    This reminds of of 2005 where everything had to fall just right for us to win the north title and it did, then all we just had to beat a lesser Kansas team.

    I could just see this happening, everything will fall just right and we will win the next two and then loss to Kansas St.

    I hope we win all three. I know we won't, but I think if this team can win two of the final three that would give us good momentum going into the off season. Also, not leaving a bitter 2-10 taste in the fan bases mouth.

    I think I've heard this tune before.

    Re: 4th place in North

    I think our fan base would be totally re-energized if we can with 2/3 of our final games. 4-8 sounds a lot better than 2-10. It's even improvement over last year's record. I know it would get me pumped.

    I would even be satisfied with 1 more win, although I know others would still be disappointed. No more wins and I think momentum for next season stumbles a lot.

    Re: 4th place in North

    I'm still dazed after the past three games. I really thought that we would have a shot at every game this year. Maybe it was just a slide! 3 wins would be nice and yet incredibly frustrating at this point!

    Sounds like we have quite the monkey problem.

    Re: 4th place in North

    I would like see Chizik to get established ahead of some other division programs ASAP. Colorado and K State are a good place to start. North does not look as strong as I thought it was going to be next 2-3 years. Danny Mac failed to capitalize on this when he had the chance. I hope Chiz can take advantage of a weak division.

    If you think about it, being in Big XII North is probably the best shot ISU will ever have to make a BCS bowl. Win a weak division and then pull off an upset in Conference title game. We need to do this before the BCS changes or gets replaced by a playoff (which I hope NEVER happens).

    Well, where there's a will, there's a way. Hopefully our boys have some will left. I think we do.
