    Re: Bottom 10

    Hahahaha they really read my letter:

    http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...tml#post712618

    It's the only explanation as to why we're not on the list. We could seriously lose to at least half of the teams on that list.

    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    Re: Bottom 10

    Damn! we are never going to make it. We are going to win at KSU and then next year we will be pretty good. We're doomed. Not going to ever make the list again.

    Re: Bottom 10

    Well, who wants to get on the Bottom 10 if we lose at KSU? Does it really take 0-8 in the conference to get the attention of ESPN? Where were they with their list when we were 0-2 or 0-4 or 0-6? They were off kissing the butts of Temple, Florida International, and Idaho State, that's where. I say we tell them to stick it. We don't need people jumping on the bandwagon after the season is over.

    With the defense, I'm stunned we can't break through!


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    It is our darned conference schedule that is killing us. We need to move to the Big West or Big Ten.

    Re: Bottom 10

    Actually looking at that bottom 10, there are really some bad teams out there this year.

    Re: Bottom 10

    No one would even bother looking at the bottom 10 if they put the same teams on it every week.

    Everyone knows we belong there and have since Kansas. We'll just have to take comfort in knowing that we'd be on the list pretty much every week if it wasn't so damn repetitive.

    I noticed there was only one punt and by us in the last game. Not much defense.

    It really is sad that our own fan base contains the only people that believe we are one of the 10 worst teams in the country.

    No one else has watched any of the games.

    Re: Bottom 10

    I don't understand the facination(sp?) with getting on this list at all. Yeah, ISU is a bad football team, but do you really want to be one of the ten worst? Any national attention is good attention is a very bady philosophy(sp?) if you ask me, I just don't see how ANYTHING good could come from making it on there.

    I'm pretty sure we could get a lot of grassroots support to be on the list from Baylor, Texas A&M, and UNLV fans.

    Re: Bottom 10

    If we were in the MAC we would be on the Bottom 10.
    That is one ranking I hope this program never gets again. They still havnt recovered from the last time they were on the list. It is sorta a list of bad teams with no hope in the near future.
