    Will fans be happy with a 4-8 record this year?

    It is now looking like we will probably finish 4-8 this season. That is doubling the wins from last season. Is that the progress that people will be happy with in year one of the Rhoads Era at ISU?

    It's better than 2 and 10...

    Happy? No. Satisfied. No. Encouraged with progress of the team? Yes. We are playing better.

    I think we'll get 5 wins, we should beat Colorado and I think we'll have a random surprise and win one that we shouldn't.

    Am I happy with 4 or 5 wins? No, but it's better than the last two years. Next year I think we'll have a lot of trouble to even get 4 wins, that's the part that stings, schedule is brutal next year.

    I think we beat Colorado in Ames to give us 4 wins on the year.

    I don't see how we can lose to A & M.

    Re: Will fans be happy with a 4-8 record this year?

    I predicted 3-9 before the season so 4-8 is minor improvement over my thoughts, it's better than 2008 and 2007 so I'll take it. Will I be happy? Hell no. Fans were ****** after the game yesterday. And they should be, a fan a few rows behind me broke a bottle, I don't condone the action but Cyclone fans should've been ****** off and it proves Cyclone fans care about their football team, rather than shrugging their shoulders and accepting it so easily.

    I won't be "happy" until we're at 6 wins and bowl eligible, if it doesn't happen in Paul Rhoads first year I understand it, but not happy about it.

    I'm happy with anything better than 2 to be honest. Obviously we were all HOPING for a bowl chance, but realistically we had to realize that would be a stretch.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Happy? No. Because I have a feeling this won't be the only game that I think we could have won and didn't. I won't be mad though either as long as we are in games. I never expected us to win more than 4. At this point though I don't see how we "probably" finish with 4 though. We are looking like the worst big XII team right now. We are going to have a lot more offense than what we can muster right now.

    A&M is a road game in a very difficult environment. We couldn't beat them last year in Ames when they fielded their worst team in decades. I will be shocked if we go into College Station and win again.

    Well, I don't think that there are any games that we can say will be a certainty. However, I must be on Koolaide because I really think that we will win more than 4 games. I think that we have an equal chance at 7 wins. Either could happen. If A-Rob doesn't get better it will probably be more like 4.

    Happy with 4 wins? Nope.
    Bondurant-Farrar could win 3 games with this schedule.

    Re: Will fans be happy with a 4-8 record this year?

    I don't get all the talk about our season being over and our bowl chances shot with yesterdays loss. If Arob is healthy by the Baylor game, I think we win that one, we'll beat Colorado, and I don't see why we can't go and beat either Kansas or Texas A&M. Why not?

    I will say this though....AA/offensive guys better work their tails off to get everything rolling again. I think our oline is fine, running game seems OK, but AA and recievers need to get on the same page. They're alot better players than what they're showing right now. C'mon boys, put it all together and let's go in and beat KU!

    I wouldn't be happy with 4 wins, but I won't be jumping off a cliff either.
