    Rough year in Football?

    Iowa State Cyclones Football Schedule, Picks, Scores, Predictions

    Looks like CFP thinks our only winable games are ND State and Army. I think this year may be a tough transitional year but the estimated spread on these games is brutal.

    Hard to tell. I've never heard of this website before.


    43-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Re: Rough year in Football?

    no way any of the experts have any idea what it's going to be this year. Entirely new system after coming off a terrible record and they're always gonna pick a terrible season. Not enough time to look seriously and in depth at the bottom team in a league and figure out the effects of a new offense and defense coming in. They're more clueless than the ISU fans are, but they allow objectivity and indifference get in the way instead of knowledge and hope.

    What else would they do? I mean, this is our 3rd head coach in 3 years, right? During that time, how many games have we won? Won 2 last year, new head coach, new systems. He's probably about right.

    Until we prove differently, this is what we'll get.

    I agree we haven't really proven otherwise, but a +12 against Kent State (even if its a road game) and the Buffs?

    Re: Rough year in Football?

    So..."CFP" stands for "Cr**** Football Predictions"?

    I dunno, I'm pretty sure that's worse than even a worst-case scenario--kind of the Anti-KoolAid.

    I do not feel most fans are upset or surprised with the predictions, rather they feel they will be proven to be incorrect.

    As much as I would like to prove them wrong, our past several seasons havn't exactly been great. However, as with most ISU fans, I am hopeful that this year will be the year.

    They already have the ISU - uofi game wrong (+27). The Vegas spread is 10 points and the underdog has covered the spread in the last 10 out of 11 games.

    We're only favored by ten? I can see that the Hawks might cover that...

    Who would pick ISU to do well? The last 3 years have been anything but good.

    I love being the underdog, I want to be underestimated. The only way to go is up.
