    ISU with 3rd toughest Big 12 Schedule (link included)

    According to this ISU has the third toughtest schedule of all Big 12 teams this year in football.

    I found it quite interesting... but then again you also have to account for the fact that the big teams can't play against themselves.

    The reason is: we don't lose S.O.S points for playing ISU. Ouch! sorry that was brutal, but the truth.

    Our program is in a sad state right now.

    To think, we are two simple victories away from being a team who won the North two years in a row and one of the more respected teams in the midwest.

    Mr. Chizik, help us.

    Not sure quite ball state level, but look at what happend last year, we got stomped by every big 12 team except 1. And then we lost both lines. Athlon has us last in the big 12 this year. I think we are better than that, but no one else is going to until ISU proves it.

    Yes.... I know what SOS is.

    I couldn't think what he was trying to convey about us playing ourselves... It seemed like he was quoting a part of the article. The whole statement was kind of condensed and I didn't see abstract thought of it..

    I gots it now though!

    I like us being picked dead last - it gives us the opportunity to sneak up on sleeping giants this year...

    Just got a copy of Dave Campbell's Texas Football magazine. His prediction for Iowa State is last in the Big 12 North. He writes about Gene Chizik being "defense-minded" and after stating some of last years offensive numbers, the need to "add some punch" to the offense.
    One thing that I have not seen anyone write about is the offensive credentials of Coach McFarland. He has a history of putting up some pretty impressive numbers as an OC. And to join the cyclone staff, he gave up a job as head coach of a team in the third year of a rebuilding that was only two or three plays away from a conference championship last year.

    What...you're telling me we have yet another tough schedule? What next dbronco - ya gonna break the news that water is wet?

    Somewhere Hawkins is yelling about Big 12 football, intramural sports and his brother.

    Did ya see who's at the top? Nebraska, that's gotta be a first. I love this quote...

    While some Big 12 teams prefer to schedule Division I-AA opponents, the Cornhuskers' non-league foes include Southern California, Wake Forest and Nevada - all played in bowl games last season.
    Nebraska shouldn't get a pat on the back for this - someone should tell them "Finally!" - because they've been scheduling some serious losers for their non-conference schedule for a while now - most of them being played at home. I think in '05 they didn't leave Lincoln until Week 5. Ick.

    I am surprised we're not higher on the list though - not that I'm complaining. I looked and no one has a stretch tougher than our 5 game gauntlet that starts at Nebraska and finishes at Missouri. Tech and Missouri won't be back breakers - yet their on the road and definitely no cupcakes.

    Find me someone else with that rough of a stretch...

    Everybody say it with me....."this is a schedule of opportunity."


    Until of course you are getting you @ss kicked week in and week out, then it's the toughest schedule in school history. I wonder if we will hear that from this coach's mouth.
