    Football Record for this Fall

    Does anyone think we can have a winning record this Fall. Historically most programs struggle in first year of coaching transition. Having said that I think 5or 6 wins is possible.

    I'm not positive, but I think this has probably been discussed once or twice already.

    I've always felt the CPR would lead us to a National Championship this season.

    Not sure... but I have some thoughts on one of the games.

    +1 I agree! And the world will then simoulanteously begin to rotate in the opposite direction and hawkeye fan will become reasonable.

    Seriously, I think we can go bowling this year.

    This looks like a blatant attempt to earn credits, but I'll bite

    If we win 5 before the Colorado game, I give us 6 wins

    Im am posting to inform all that I refused to read the contents of this thread.

    With that said, sooner or later.....the urge will overcome me to read it.

    CURSES!

    Re: Football Record for this Fall

    Hey guys, ease up - he only joined CF this month, and it has been a little while since it has been brought up.

    Anyway, can it happen? Sure - anything is possible. We were supposed to be lousy in 2004 and instead won 7 games and came 1 FG shy of taking the division.

    Will it happen, though, is a different question. A lot of things are going to have to go right. First, the coaching staff is a good one, but they are going to have to gel with the players over the summer. The players are going to have to learn the system very quickly. That is hard in itself. Even then, we are going to have to win at least 3, if not all, of our out-of-conference games. Assuming we only win 3, that means we'll have to take at least 4 of our conference games which consist of Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas, K-State, Missouri, Baylor, OSU, and aTm. IMO, we realistically have a shot at the ones I've bolded, which means we'd have to sweep them. In other words, it really doesn't look too good. IMO, 8 is the maximum we win if everything falls in our direction this year. Realistically, we're looking at 4-6 wins.

    We will go 17-0. After winning the Big XII and National Championship we will be invited in to the NFL playoffs because we are so fun to watch. We will then proceed to win the Super Bowl and finally settle the annual SportsCenter debate of "best ever".

    You know, you're the third person that I've heard say that exact thing. I'm starting to believe that it will happen.
