    We'll make it to a bowl game this year!

    Caught your attention? Well, good! Here's why:

    We should win at least 3 out of our 4 pre-conference games. There's your 3 win.

    We should beat Kansas State and Colorado. If we don't, well too bad. We are way more talented than both of those teams.

    Lastly, we should steal one more win from either A&M or Baylor.

    I can definitely see us winning 5 games for sure, but 6 games should be within reach followed by a bowl game.

    5 wins would be really amazing. That means either knocking off some pretty big schools or winning a road game. Id take either.

    "Should" win? I'm not sure that we're to the point of "should" wins yet.

    The first game of the season and no penalty in defense or offense. It's no miracle - the coaching staff know what they're doing. I see some "should" wins.

    I hope u r right but we were 2-10. sometimes things don't work out the way we'ed like And it Mya take a couple of years to get new systems to work smoothly. a program may only talk about the positives because they need to sell seats (marketing 101).

    You know people, lets try to have a non-negative thread. If you don't agree, then keep quiet or be constructive. Don't just sit there and be negative.

    I gave up predicting wins for Iowa State a long time ago. It only leads to letdowns.

    Re: We'll make it to a bowl game this year!

    If we manage to beat Iowa and then Kent State on the road, then I'll be ready to say we "should" beat Army. If we're 4-0 going into Kansas City on Oct. 3rd, I might even say we should beat K-State. I'm holding off using "should" until I see a little more football. I wasn't at the NDSU game to see first-hand, but I still don't know for sure what this team really can or can't do.

    Re: We'll make it to a bowl game this year!

    I am going to go out on a limb and guarantee at least 3 wins this year...I am not sticking my neck any further out than that.

    Re: We'll make it to a bowl game this year!

    I like the way you think! I don't want to be a pesimist, but we did start last year 2-0. There's still a lot that could happen between now and the end of the year.

    I don't want to get my hopes too high, nor set my expectations too low! I'd love a bowl game, but would still be happy with 4-5 wins if we show signs of improvement throughout the year instead of melting down like last year.

    Re: We'll make it to a bowl game this year!

    We can analyze statistics and teams all day long, but the fact is nobody knows what the outcome will be. A team like KU or Braska could play amazing all year, but have 4 turnovers in the game against us and lose. Heck we could win 8 games this year if teams don't prepare for us accordingly and it happens to be "our day." Will it happen? Probably not. But that is what makes every game/season exciting to an extent. I don't like to flirt with the should/could wins. Once again, I like to remain cautiously optimistic.


    Enjoy.
