    There might be hope for a .500 season!!!

    This was the last line in the Lindy's College football magazine i just purchased. I like to see that. They actually talked about ISU having a decent season. Thats something i have seen in a college football magazine in a while.

    This reminds me to the hawk troll who said iowa state was ranked last or in the bottom ten by publishers is wrong lindys has us at 91, and athlon has us at 81.

    I find it best if I have no hopes for the season - that way I may be surprised at the end.

    This is still better than #127 in the last great Glene Chezslack team that won two games. Some may say he recruited players well, it was just the coaches.

    Re: There might be hope for a .500 season!!!

    I just read Athlon's last night. Is it me or was the write-up on CU sort of down-beat? I got the impression that the writer's considered CU to have been lucky not to go 0-8 in the B12 and that Hawkins is not making any progress. They seemed more positive on the whole about KSU and ISU than Colorado.

    Unfortunately, if ISU does have a good season GC will take all the credit for it.

    Gene Chizik forgot about us 7 months ago (if not earlier). This is now Paul's barbeque and it smells delicious.

    LOL, if the team does well this season, it will have nothing to do with Chizik. Sure, he may have brought the talent, but he never brought the wins. Any wins that Rhoads gets will be his and the team's own success.

    Re: There might be hope for a .500 season!!!

    I'm not going to lie. If we went out and won 7 games, I wouldn't be shocked. However, I wouldn't be shocked if we won 3. It's going to be key for us to at least go 3-1 in the non-conference. If we can do that, there a couple games in conference we could realistically win...KSU, Colorado, maybe Baylor even Mizzou if they can't rebound from all they've lost.

    I see us more around the 5-7 range though.

    Maybe Baylor? Is Griffin going to be in the NFL by then?

    Re: There might be hope for a .500 season!!!

    Just keep remembering the jump we took from 2003 to 2004 with roughly the same defensive issues and the loss of Berryman.

    It can happen. I am not holding out hope it will happen, but it can happen.

    If we do steal some Big XII games I would put money on beating Mizzou and A&M on the road before us beating Baylor.

    Obviously Griffin is a spectacular talent. What I'm saying is that I wouldn't shock me if could pull that game off. If I were to bet on it, I would probably throw money down on the Bears, but I certainly don't think it will be like last year.
