    Why does rivals rip Arnaud by saying hes part of the all losers team?

    "It's not meant as a slight to the players, not at all. Rather, the All-Losers team comes about because these players, such as Iowa State's Austen Arnaud, toil for teams that are likely to finish with losing records this season."

    Reads more like they are praising him and ripping our team?

    Did you read the paragraph you quoted? They're giving him props. The shot is at the team.

    Honestly, what is this obsession with tearing people down over the summer? Last summer, it was who has the worst uniforms and stadium, now an all-losers team? Why not talk about who is good...the best players, the best stadiums, the best uniforms, etc. Oh yeah, because those articles have already been written a dozen times and these loser "jounalists" have to justify their salary by writing SOMETHING. Why not badmouth ISU?

    KO also made the team.

    ISU went to a bowl game last year, and the mac hold-overs got to finally be part of a successful team. There were lots of winner last year for ISU, and this season has yet to be played.

    I'll also add the writer could have used different terminology than the "all loser" team.

    If you read the bolded part....I can't see what we would ***** about.

    Given we have what has been called the toughest schedule in the country, and we are Iowa State, to say that we likely finish with a losing record isn't a stretch or a shot.

    Last time I checked we were 7-6 last season and won a bowl game. Plus went to Lincoln and beat the Huskers, a feat few accomplish.
