    Big 12 Power Rankings

    Big 12 power rankings: Week 5 - College Football Nation - ESPN


    Nice to see ISU not in 12. I thought the little blurb was pretty accurate.

    Except 3-1 is not our best start since 1931. We've been 3-1 or better several times in the past decade.

    Best start for a first coach.

    Re: Big 12 Power Rankings

    At this point in time, not to be mentioned as the worst team in the Big 12 is PHENOMINAL. Nice work CPR. Keep up the good work. Let's prove we are better than KSU.
    I'm just a little worried that Billy Snyder will be able to outcoach Rhoads. He has always been very good at getting the most out of his players, even when he was out gunned.

    Not true. We've only started 3-1 five times or so since the 70's.

    Re: Big 12 Power Rankings

    ...maybe they should have said "tied for our best start since 1931." Would that be accurate?

    I guess I read the quote wrong, but either way he's still incorrect...

    Very quietly, Paul Rhoads has boosted his team to a 3-1 start, which might not make a bowl trip such a far-fetched scenario for the Cyclones. It's the best start for an Iowa State coach since George Veenker in 1931, who started 5-1.
    He's saying it's the best start since we went 5-1 in 1931, but...

    We started 4-0 in 2000 and 6-1 in 2002. Both of those are better than 3-1.

    No he's talking about for a new coach's first year.

    My comment was regarding your note about us starting 3-1 or better several times in the past decade. It's not true. Especially with a new coach.

    Guess it depends on how you define "several." Six times since 1999 (granted that's one year more than a decade) seems like several to me.

    But you're right, it didn't involve a new coach each of those times, and I had missed that part of the quote. My apologies.

    Actually, it is true. He said we have been 3-1 several times in the past decade. Well since he was referring to our best start (yes I know the coach) in the past decade, as a team, we have been 3-1 or better to start the season:

    2005-06 --> 3-1
    2002-03 --> 3-1
    2001-02 --> 3-1
    2000-01 --> 4-0
    1999-00 --> 3-1

    Re: Big 12 Power Rankings

    We should be #9, ahead of Baylor.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: Big 12 Power Rankings

    Hate to break the news to you guys, but we haven't been 12th all season long. In fact, other than one week at 11, Griffin has had us 10th the entire season.
