    Athlon Preview: ISU 3-9, 1-7

    Just picked up my copy of Athlon's 2010 college football preview.

    They have the Clones going 3-9 overall and 1-7 in the Big 12, ranking sixth in the North.

    In another quick note, Athlon has Iowa State's defensive line, linebackers and secondary all individually ranked dead last in the Big 12.

    Kelechi Osemele is the only individual Cyclone mention. They have him as a second-team offensive lineman.

    FYI - I will be posting an in-depth blog on this later this week.

    I can buy our DL as last in the conference, and MAYBE our LBs just because of experience. But our secondary as last? With David Sims and Leonard Johnson? Athlon just went down in my book. a lot.

    Was an Iowa fan writing this? I don't think we are going to be as good as we were last year but we aren't going to be THAT bad.

    I finally gave up buying these magazines years ago. Seemed like even in our best years with good talent returning, they had the same old prediction every year....5th or 6th in the North. I don't think they put a whole lot of research in their analysis.

    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Re: Athlon Preview: ISU 3-9, 1-7

    I suppose I can go with the defensive stuff. I disagree but it is a reasonable thought if you are outside. I don't buy the offensive stuff though. How does ARob not get any love?


    It's all snark from here on out

    This is bulletin board material if I've ever seen it.....They should give a copy to each one of the position coaches and use this as motivation.....just another new season, no respect....Let crack some heads and take names....

    IIRC Athlon in 2006 had ISU as 2nd in the North, with an outside shot at supplanting Nebraska as North champion. We all know how well that turned out...

    That being said, 3-9 (1-7) is bull****, for the simple fact of the matter that we're better than and will beat Kansas, K-State, and Colorado. We should be no worse than 5-7 (3-5), which, while it would be worse than last year, would be a gigantic step forward in the program, considering the schedule.

    Can't argue with our DL and LB groups as worst in the Big 12. They are.

    Our secondary should hopefully be a strength though.

    My prediction.... we will be a better football team this year than last year, but our record will be worse. Our schedule is WAY too brutal.
