    Great list. Good example of how acheiving small goals (i.e., end road losing streak) makes it possible to achieve big goals (i.e., Big 12 North conference title).

    I think they key is the goal. PR stated the goal is to improve each and every week. As long as we do that, the rest takes care of itself.

    I think we won there more recently than we've beat them here.

    Walden did at some point.

    Yeah, looked it up, it was 1990. I just wasn't sure if Walden won at Oklahoma or if it was a home game. I believe we have beaten them 5 times total in our history, so it was worth a shot.

    Don't believe we've EVER beaten Texas. That's the hurdle this program needs to clear for legitimacy...

    What a first year CPR has shaping up.

    ISU is 0 - 7 all time vs. Texas home and away. While not the longest streak, we have never won against them.

    If we get #7 this year (Big 12 North Championship), we will get a shot at:
    8) Beating Texas for the first time ever.
    That would be one of the toughest goals to accomplish. Of course, that would lead to:
    9) Get ISU to a BCS Bowl
    then
    10) Win a BCS bowl

    That would be the number one, best coaching season ever.

    Is that the only team in the Big 12 we haven't beat? Definitely need that notch in the belt. Let's hope its next year.
