    Call Me Nuts... Or Not

    This is how I think the season will go...


    NIU... Win... Going to be a tough season opener but we pull it off barely.
    @Iowa.. Loss.. Sorry to say it. Iowa, at Kinnick nuff said.(Id Love to see it but Im putting it at 20-80 right now) Need a Nebraska game from 09' to pull this off
    @(Neutral)KSU.. Win.. No repeat of 09' No way.
    UNI.. Win... Wondering when they will move this to the dome. ISU big
    TTU....Win... New Coach New System.. We pull it off in Ames.. Get ready for a nail biter
    Utah.. Loss.. Have never seen this one happening. Let the 0-5 all-time happen
    @OK.....Loss.. I mean CPR is getting us there but not this year. Maybe in 5 years or so
    @TX.....Loss.. Check the Comment above
    KU..... Win... Check TTU Comment. Defense has settled and wont let this one go
    NU.... Win.... Their last time at JTS will be remembered as a a**whooping. Make sure you bring everybody and your mom. Early call 35- 14 ISU
    @CU.... Win.. Yes We never play good at CU but I got a felling. This sends them on their way to the Pac 10(12) With a big F U
    MIZZ.. Win.. IM saying cause I really want to but you never know.

    So if my calculations are correct this puts us at 8-4. Playing Oklahoma in last Big 12 title game ever.

    assuming no injuries and everything bounces our way, sure?

    I hope you are right. That should leave us ranked at the end of the regular season. Around 17-25 I would imagine.

    Re: Call Me Nuts... Or Not

    I really don't think that Texas Tech will have a new system. As far as I know, they've retained a couple offensive coaches from the Leach regime in order to keep the same offense intact. Under Tuberville, their defense will only get better, since Leach really didn't care about his defense at all. Tech might be the 5th best team we play this year (tossup with Utah I guess).

    I REALLY hope you're right. I'll change just the NU game. I don't think we win that game. If we go 7-5, that means we won EVERY game we were supposed to and maybe one that we were not supposed to. That has never happened in Iowa State Football history.

    Hey, I do it all the time, and it usually spawns my best work. I think this guy's spot on, with the exception off Nebby. I can see us winning that game, bit no way do we win by more than 5 pts. Also, CU and MU scare me. I can see 6 - 6.

    Now, you must understand, I am sober and at work, so take this for what it's worth.

    I agree that Iowa will definitely win, but I don't see them allowing 20 points (especially since it's not divisible by 3), much less putting up 80.

    Those predictions aren't ridiculous. The only great team he has us beating is Nebraska. Other than that he was pretty conservative.

    I thought Leach was the one making all the calls though. Their offense will not be the same. Ask Tubberville how the spread offense worked for him at Auburn.

    I don' think Tubby will like the pace of that offense if it means his defense will be out on the field a lot.

    My point was mainly that players won't be learning new plays, a whole new playbook, new terminology, etc. that typically takes a while to get a handle on. All of that is already implemented.

    At Auburn, Tuberville was trying to install that offense from scratch, with players who weren't recruited to run it. He doesn't have that problem at Tech.
