    ISU gets Fuitaked

    Quotes:
    "The [KSU] team isn't good enough to be thinking about big Big 12 games quite yet, and it's likely going to be the 11th best team in the league ahead of Iowa State, but that doesn't mean there can't be a little excitement."

    Scout.com: 2009 CFN Kansas State Preview

    "While facing Arizona at home isn't going to be a walk in the park, the non-conference schedule is a joke unless Iowa State can play like it always does against the Hawkeyes."

    Scout.com: 2009 CFN Iowa Preview

    Here's hoping Fuitak gets Fuitaked on these predictions as far as ISU is concerned.

    I think we're better than KSU. We'll find out, I guess. I can't take issue with people giving us zero respect right now. We didn't do a damn thing to earn it last year.

    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Re: ISU gets Fuitaked

    With the loss of Freeman and that pesky little receiver (who I believe was kicked off the team recently) I'm not sure they will stay within 10 points of us. Although they will be unpredictable with all of the Jucos on their team.

    I agree that we really should win this game. Their offense is getting worse, ours SHOULD be getting better, and both defenses are equally worthless...

    Re: ISU gets Fuitaked

    I really do think KSU is going to struggle this year, but if Snyder still has some of that magic left in him, they could be a pesky bunch. Carson Coffman apparently had a good spring, but I just don't see much returning on either side of the ball. Let's not also forget that they beat us soundly last year.

    As for what Fuitak said, get used to it. We've been awful the last 3 years and there's no reason for any pundit to expect us to be any better. As bad and as undersized and slow as our defense is, we'll be picked to finish last in the conference by everyone.

    I really do think we have some nice pieces to build around, but I'm going to temper my expectations until I see some evidence on the field that gives me more of a reason to be optimistic. That being said, I renewed my season tickets and can't wait for Sept. 3rd!

    Re: ISU gets Fuitaked

    Fiutak is one of few national guys to give us respect on those rare occasions when it's due, so I guess I don't mind seeing him say that now, we certainly haven't earned much better. He'll come around after our first few games.

    Really? 8 Points is soundly? odd.

    We put up a good fight against them, but they took care of business well enough to secure the win early in the 4th quarter. "Soundly" might not have been the best word to use, but I don't think we had what it took to beat them. That was a total pride game for both squads and once they realized that we weren't rolling over, they turned it on just enough to come away with a relatively comfortable win.

    I'm still proud of the effort our guys gave that day. It would have been easy to half-*** that game, but guys like R.J. Sumrall and several other seniors really made a statement in my mind. Hopefully that carries over.

    Re: ISU gets Fuitaked

    IMHO KSU has too many cracks in their team to be solid for this year. With that being said they are good at getting back up quickly. They may have been posting losing records in these last few years, but their records are better than ours. As for right now the only thing they have on us is that they beat us last year. We both lost our coaches and will be starting new offenses/defenses in 2009. I don't blame professionally paid writers to pick them over us. What else do they have to work with? I won't start making predictions till after our non-conf schedule is done. We need to win 3 of 4 till see a major improvement from last season

    Re: ISU gets Fuitaked

    As a non-biased Nebraska fan, I think ISU is definitely better than KSU. I also wouldn't be surprised if ISU ends up 4th in the North a head of KSU and Colorado.

    The question is...are you non-biased with respect to Colorado? I don't keep up with CU, but I didn't think they were headed towards the cellar.

    I see Iowa State competing with Colorado for 5th place in the North.

    Can anyone give me the Cliff's Notes on CU? Why are they not getting much respect? Where are they weak/strong?
