    wow harsh


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I would worry too much about this. It's just another stat and number monkey who may have seen one game hammering on the program. SOme stuff is true but for the most part he has no idea what he's talking about. How come no one mentions that we could have been 9-3 when they bring up how we beat Nebraska. I am not into the could have's but if you are going to say we should have lost to Nebby then I think it is only fair you bring up the two heartbreakers and the Mizzou game.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: ISU finishes #67 in CFN's final poll

    CFN is as worthless as **** on a boar. Seriously. 5-7 Washinton and Miss State are ranked higher. If I was to rank ISU, it would be in the 45-50 range. We may not score a ton of points, but we scored enough points to beat 7 teams.

    Re: ISU finishes #67 in CFN's final poll

    CFN is really a worthless site, I believe for half the season they had our record wrong in their rankings, they said that the winner of the game between us and Mizzou could tie for the north title, even though it was mathematically impossible at the time, their post game analysis usually included someone looking at the box score and typing a couple of sentences about it etc......I really would not put much stock into anything they say.

    Re: ISU finishes #67 in CFN's final poll

    Well, there are what, like 34 Bowl games? That means 68 teams make a bowl, so how can you put us much below that? That also means we are one of only 34 teams to win a bowl game. Though I certainly wouldn't try to make a claim that we are top 34 in the nation. I would agree that 45-50 would be about right. I think we are better than almost all of the mid-majors as well as the BCS bottom feeders.

    I thought 36, but I agree.

    Not asking to be put in the top 34/36 as a bowl winner. But at least above teams that didn't even qualify for post season.

    I was thinking lower 50's to 60's.

    We were ahead of Texas A&M, and they beat us fairly handily... just saying.

    "the defense was lousy"

    We may have given up a lot of yards, but our defense wasn't lousy! We were 2nd in the nation in red zone defense (2nd in Big 12), we are 34th in scoring D (5th in Big 12), and we were 9th in the country in turnovers gained (2nd in Big 12). We gave up a lot of yards between the 20s, but we came up with plays when it counted. That is the mark of a good D, making the plays that are needed to win.

    Re: ISU finishes #67 in CFN's final poll

    Not quite as insulting as I initially thought. They listed 5 other B12 teams below us (TAM, KSU, KU, Baylor & Colorado) which means they thought we finished as the seventh best team in the B12. I'll take that for now.

    They have 5-7 Washington 5 spots ahead of us, why? The Pac10 was worse this year than the Big 12.

    Really

    Texas
    Ok St
    Nebraska
    Oklahoma

    vs.

    Oregon
    Stanford
    USC
    Oregon St.

    I would call it a draw. There were a lot of real bad teams in this league.

    Re: ISU finishes #67 in CFN's final poll

    I don't argue that we were not a good team, because we weren't. We had some breaks go our way like a Griffin-less Baylor team and +9 TO margin at NU. You could also say with a healthy ARob we could have beat KU and KSU. But after all is said and done, we were 6-6 in a VERY bad north division. We needed the chips to fall our way for once and they did.

    It doesn't matter how you get the ball rolling, just as long as it does.
