    Only one Big 12 media member picks ISU to not finish last

    And they picked us to finish 5th. I'm assuming it was a little John Walters love. Brutal. A&M got the same treatment in the south. Strange company.

    That is ridiculous. How can we be picked dead last in the north. I know we are coming off a brutal year and getting a new coach but so is K-State. I think we are going to shock some people this year. Honestly think we can finish atlest 4th place in the North and KSUck and sCUm can bring up the rear.

    Well, because KSU beat us last season. I can't fault anyone for picking us last.

    I think we'll beat KSU too, but I'm neither surprised nor upset by this prediction. What reason did we give them to think otherwise? They are just looking at 2-10, and not the fact that we return a lot more talent than KSU (who lost a 1st draft pick QB).

    I can't either, but I would have thought we'd have more than ONE of the 32 guys vote out of last. It's not that we're there that gets me - it's the fact that everybody assumes we'll be there.

    A new coaching staff breeds optimism within a fanbase, but not the national pundits. I wouldn't be surprised to see us have a 2-10 to 4-8 season. Learning a new system is difficult, especially the one we are going to. And no one is talking about the D, and most agree that it will be less than stellar. Count on this team making some silly mistakes early, and getting better as the season goes on and they get more reps in the system. But don't count on having a breakout year. The thing that sucks, is the schedule gets MUCH more difficult in the coming years.

    I guess Synder is not new...retreaded would be more appropriate.

    Well I hope our guys use this as fuel to their fire. I think if our guys can stay healthy, we can make a bowl game. I see us finishing 9-3 at best and 6-6 at worst with us falling somewhere in between.

    Honestly, I'm more surprised that we weren't unanimously picked to finish last. No worries though, we'll get our chances.

    Temper those expectations. 6-6 is generally in all likelihood our absolute best case scenario. 7-5 could happen, but that would take a lot bounces our way. Even 6-6 might be unreasonable.

    Because ISU always finishes last. I would pick us last this year also. Did you not watch any games last year?

    Your very first 2 posts on this site are rather bold statements. I as a fan would have trouble not voting us last in the Big XII North and 6-6 is best case scenario and 2-10 (although I would be mailing back my degree) is not impossible.

    When i go through the sched this is how i see it:

    NDSU - W
    Iowa - Toss up
    Kent St - W
    Army - W
    KSU - W
    KU - L
    BU - W
    NU - L
    aTm - Toss up
    OSU - L
    CU - W
    MU - L

    We have the potential to start the season 5-0, more than likely it will be 4-1 but then all we have to do is trip up two teams and we are bowl bound.
