    ISU 32nd in fall sports rankings

    ISU finished 3rd in the Big12 in the Learfield Sports Directorsí Cup Standings for fall, and 32nd in the nation. That is ahead of all other Division I schools in the state of Iowa.

    For those that don't remember, improving ISU's Sports Directorsí Cup Standings was one of JP's main goals and ISU standings have improved every year that JP has been our AD.

    Just think how high we can go when the BB and FB programs get turned around. Things have got a lot better under JP, except the 2 most visable sports.

    Hey, at least we beat Iowa in something this year.

    This ranking is going to drop after spring.

    Re: ISU 32nd in fall sports rankings

    Iowa is going to get at least 25 points for being in a bowl game. If they win, it'll be 45. If they win and finish in the top 25, it'll probably be around 60.

    Wrestling: Pretty much a wash. If Iowa is #1 and ISU is #2, that's +10 for Iowa.

    WBB/MBB: NCAA qualifiers get 25. 2nd round = 50. Sweet 16 = 64.

    If we can get football and basketball turned around, imagine where our ranking would be

    Are we really supposed to care where Iowa (or any other school) ranks in this thing? I sure as hell don't. I want Iowa State University to keep working towards consistently being in the top 20 or so programs every semester. If Iowa can do that do, well good for them- just goes to show the strong character of our residents and students. But regardless of how well or poorly any other school is doing, I could not care any less. My attention is focused entirely on my Iowa State University Cyclones, because that is the only team that should matter in these rankings to anyone on this board.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.
