    Whatif Sports.com Simulated College Football Season!!!!

    I just do not get it, they have us going 2-10 with wins against NDSU and Army. Now can that win total happen, sure I guess it can, but what makes no sense to me is the have us only scoring 230 pts the whole season or 19.17 per game while giving up 396 pts or 33 per game. Now on Defene I think we would take that, but I do not get the offensive numbers, those sims must really hate us. They have us almost winning vs, KSU, Kent St, Texas A&M and Colorado, they actually have us losing those games by a combined 10 pts, so they are saying we are only 10 pts away from 6-6 record. Now here is where I do not get it, last year the team had 304 pts, and was not coached and did not perform well in the red zone, so last year we average 25.33 pts, and return most of the offense, the skill players and have a new spread offense with a good coach, how can our numbers possible go down from last year, now on the defense thy actuall have us improving from giving up 35.83 pts per game to 33, now I will take that. I just do not get it. I will post the link for all to see.
    Can't wait till Thursday.

    Is that the % that the computer is giving us to win, or are you saying that ISU's win % against Iowa at home is 5%?

    For the record, there have been 22 home ISU/Iowa games and ISU has a winning % of 32% (which is only 1% better than our away % against Iowa). Also, the average score is 24-14.

    It is what there computers are saying we will win, 5% of the time, really pretty low if you look at the seris the last ten years, which you would think a computer simulation would do.

    It seems screwy to me. Did a Hawk do the programming?

    That's what the link for week 2 in the original post said. How is this so hard?

    Must be, because they gave UNI a 5% chance to beat Iowa @ Iowa.

    Even if a Hawk did the programming it would be more than 5% chance to win unless it was an absolute homer.

    They also only give us a 5% chance against Baylor if that tells you anything.
