    CFN ISU preview

    Good preview, seems accurate. Can't believe I was the first to post this:

    After just five wins in two years, and after all the problems in a ten-game losing streak to close out last season, did Gene Chizik leave a program that's about to emerge as a productive part of the Big 12, or did the former regime stink and is Iowa State starting from scratch again?

    If nothing else, new head man Paul Rhoads should make things a bit more fun. Iowa State went from being bad, but pesky, in 2006 to bad and boring last year. The passing attack put up numbers but they mostly came in comeback mode thanks to a defense that wasn't even close against the high-octane Big 12 offenses. However, there was success against Colorado in the 28-24 loss and the D held Iowa to 17 points. No one was stopping anyone in the Big 12 last season, and there were four losses that could've swung the other way, but it's not time to assume that the coaching change and all the returning experience will result in an immediate turnaround.........

    Re: CFN ISU preview

    Seems like a fair analysis, only saw one glaring mistake where it listed JJ Bass instead of Bo Williams

    Their rating of ISU
    QB: 7
    RB: 7
    WR: 6.5
    OL: 6.5
    DL: 5.5
    LB: 5.5
    DB: 6.5
    SP: 8

    They were probably afraid that typing Bo's name would make their computers explode.

    There isn't an off-week to rest up at any point

    Why don't we have an off-week?!!!?!! Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought every team got an off-week during the season to rest up. I almost have to wonder if the schedule-makers are just picking on us since we're Iowa State.

    Our off week is at the end of the season

    The depth chart is kinda messed up. I'd have to think Taufoou will crack the two deeps, and Sims will start over Sandvig barring something crazy.

    Does that really make it an off-week though, if it's at the end of the season?

    They said Bo sat out last year because he was injured, when he was ineligible.

    We'll be able to rest up for our bowl game, while other teams are still playing.

    I would like to see one of the non-conference games moved (I would prefer a conference game moved) to the last weekend if this is something we are going to see in the future. I think off weeks are a big deal.

    Maybe we are not too far off. Those who were saying 4-8 or 5-7 were much more prevelant that those at 6-6. I dont know the writer, but most on here would be pleasantly pleased with a 6 win season. Man, I am ready for football.

    Those 2008 "fun" stats aren't very fun looking to me.
