    Blythe & Meyer...that's quite the turnaround from last year. Maybe that will motivate them.

    I totally agree with what you just said and what the free info on Rivals states. There is no reason for our team to expect anything else from any of the media after last season- let's just hope that they can live up to last years preseason expectations this year. With a chip on their shoulder and alot of hard work you never know- it may be a year late but it would be better than never!

    Wasn't Meyer ranked #1 by some going into last year? People forget Blythe was coming off surgery and still had a decent year for being on a less than average team.

    Re: Rivals Website Predictions

    Is Sam Keller of NE at No 1 without taking a snap?


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: Rivals Website Predictions

    Keller took a lot of snaps at ASU and he looked pretty solid to me there.

    Honestly, I can't argue with anything on the List. Plus, Blythe had surgery after his freshman year and the talk heading into last season was that it was his first full offseason and we were going to see the full power of Blythe unleashed. Yeah he got mono, but the offense was lethargic until then anyway.

    They need to prove they are top players in the Big 12 all over again after last season.

    Now that Meyer isn't expected to be all world in the Big 12 and Blythe is flying in a little under the radar, I would think that they will play like they have nothing to lose. That is true for Meyer, unless he loses his starting job...this fall is going to bring great changes to the attitude of ISU football, and I for one can not wait.

    Re: Rivals Website Predictions

    Blythe is definitely better than number 5 on the list in terms of raw talent. Meyer should also be in the top 5. That being said, I don't think Bowen is the second best linebacker in the conference.
