    Cyclone offense rated behind Iowa, Auburn

    Scout.com: 2009 CFN Preview - Unit Rankings

    College Football News has the ISU offense rated at 59. That behind the Hawks at 17 and Auburn at 48. Does anyone out there agree with this? Auburn offense was bad last year, does the Chiz make that offense better than ours. And give me a break, Iowa does not have the 17 best offense in the nation.

    Look at the numbers and get back to us with your findings.

    Re: Cyclone offence rated behind Iowa, Auburn

    you're absolutely right about EIU, not in the top 20 in Offense this year is my prediction.

    Have no idea about Auburn, but they're going up against some pretty ****** off SEC opponents this year.

    Re: Cyclone offence rated behind Iowa, Auburn

    Auburn has/had one of the worst offenses of the BCS conference teams. Absolutely nothing at QB last year. Good stable of running backs, though. Iowa's offense looked like USC of a few years ago compared to Auburn.

    as it's hard to determine how one guy determines one offense is better than another.

    Iowa did rank 37th in points per game last year in the NCAA, ISU was 82nd. Not that it means squat for this year, just an observation.

    Re: Cyclone offence rated behind Iowa, Auburn

    Looks like for ISU to clearly be ahead of Auburn and Iowa they need to improve in the red-zone.
    Total Offense
    ISU 44
    Iowa 53
    Auburn 104

    Scoring Offense
    Iowa 37
    ISU 82
    Auburn 111

    Re: Cyclone offence rated behind Iowa, Auburn

    So Iowa is going to be much better an offense without Shonn Greene? Really? Top 20? Give me a break.

    Re: Cyclone offence rated behind Iowa, Auburn

    First off.... its offenSe...

    Second, no damn way the Sqwaks are rated in the top 20 in offense... I'd be amazed if they were top 50! What makes their offense good... who is their good receivers.... nobody, that's right.... their QB is mildly unproven.... ok... they lost their only offensive weapon to the draft last year.... Shonn Greene... so I ask, how are they even CLOSE to rated in the top 30 or 40?

    Re: Cyclone offence rated behind Iowa, Auburn

    The biggest joke is Iowa's WR are rated 36th and ISU's are 66th. Are you kidding me?

    And don't forget about Andy "I'm from Ankeny but don't live in a trailer" Brodell. He was very significant for them on O.

    Scout.com: 2009 CFN Preview - Unit Rankings ... WR & TE

    Iowa receivers 36 by College Football New and ISU receivers 66? What is that about?

    I'm sure, just like every pre-season ranking, they are not forgetting the 2-10 product of the Mean Gene Machine.

    Re: Cyclone offence rated behind Iowa, Auburn

    FWIW, Iowa finished 2nd in the B10 last year in offense. I have no idea how though tbh.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Scoring 55 against Minnesota and 45 against Indiana inflated the numbers a bit.
