    Have a little faith y'all..

    There is NO way I would have guessed HOW we would be at 5-5 right now, but somehow Coach Rhoads and these kids have done it.

    With 2 games to go we can still get to a bowl. If the utterly unfathomable happens we could even play in a BCS bowl - yes, it's true, of course pigs may fly first.

    I am not quite ready for this insanely cool start to our new coaching staff's first year to be done. Nor do I think the seniors on this team will let this close out quietly.

    So, let's Pack the Jack! Yell loud and strong, Woohee, this just might be a wild finish!


    That's why they play the games...

    I appreciate the sentiment, but I've just taken my daily IV of Cyclone Koolaid, and my faith is at delusional levels

    I predicted 6-6 before the season. It's not like the cupboard was completely empty. Chizik left us some talent, so to me, being 5-5 at this point isn't too shocking.

    Re: Have a little faith y'all..

    My expectations for the season were: Best Case 7-5, Worst Case 4-7/3-8. Given that it is Year One for Rhodes and the 7-5 mark is still in reach, I am pretty excited. Would like to have the KSU game back but.... Anyway, I think it is important for the program to become bowl eligible this year. I believe that '09 will be the best chance that ISU will have to go to a bowl for another couple of years at least. With the schedules coming up, I think it is very important for ISU to take as much advantage as it can this season.

    Here's to closing the season strong with wins over CU and MU. I think both of these games could go either way.

    I said how - unless you predicted a win in Lincoln with our redshirt frosh qb and backup rb, or did you?

    Here! Here!

    I'll be driving down from Minneapolis on Saturday morning for the game! We'll get that 6th win!

    Re: Have a little faith y'all..

    I'm extremely proud of the job that our coaches have done in changing the culture (or at least starting to) of our program. Losing isn't just accepted, and they've managed to convince a team full of guys that lost a whole bunch of games that winning right now is possible.

    And they've helped a bunch of fans who are used to arguing about what all went wrong to keep discussing bowl possibilities in the middle of November. No small achievement there.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Have a little faith y'all..

    and given how tough our schedule has been, we are exceeding expectations. Should clean up on whoever we play in our bowl.
