    Fun scenario for a dream season.

    This is just a fun thought I had regarding this season. This is by no means a prediction as I think based on the schedule we have 5-6 wins and the Hawks have 1 or more likely 2 losses.

    But Suppose the cards line up just right for the Clones this year and we come out of nowhere to go 11-1, losing to Oklahoma and then shocking them by beating them in the Big 12 championship! Then the Hawk Homers are correct and they go 12-0 and win the Big 10. Wouldn't it be awesome that based on our strength of schedule we leap-frog the Hawks with a 1 loss record and go to the Title Game!

    Just something funny I thought of.

    We can't go 11-1 losing to Oklahoma and them going 12-0. Iowa or ISU has to win the game when they play.

    Haha, good point! Well, that would be even better if they were our 1 loss and we jumped them!

    Wouldn't happen. I can't imagine the uproar that would happen if they were undefeated and our only loss, yet they got jumped by us. Especially with them starting how high in the rankings they are. It would have to be us that was undefeated and they're only loss for us to jump them.

    As long as we are doing actual impossible scenarios... What if we went 11-1 with our only loss coming to the '72 Dolphins?

    Hey, just having some fun. Remember that is what message boards are for. I said what my actual predictions were.

    So you are saying we would face them in the Championship? Awesome!

    I am not busting your chops for hypotheticals, I am busting your chops for mathematically impossible scenarios.

    I prefer the improbable scenario of a 6-1 Cyclone team butting heads with a 5-1 Texas team after we beat Oklahoma and they don't.
