    don't know why everyone says ISU's schedule is so tough, less than half of the opponents are ranked! :smile:

    Well.....How long has it been since we have beaten a ranked team? I can't remember. We will have plenty of chances this year

    I still don't get what gets people thinking that Nebraska is a top 10 team, other than than the fact that they are Nebraska. Just another program that people are waiting for to come back (like Notre Dame). Rank them in the top 10 when they actually play like a top 10 team, not because you want them to be. I don't care what Pelini says, that defense is going to take a step back this year. No way they find a way to replace Suh in just one offseason. And Zac Lee is still his QB. That says more than enough to keep them out of the top 10 right there.

    How in the world is Nebraska ranked ahead of Iowa?? That makes absolutely no sense.

    A favorable schedule, 10 returning starters on offense, one of the top special teams units in the nation and a deeper, more experienced defense, regardless of the loss of Suh.

    If true, what you related above may equal a winning season or even a legitimate contender for Big 12 north crown, but it does not equal top ten.

    Colorado, 2005. We were 2-0 vs. ranked teams that year. Beat #8 Iowa and #22 Colorado.

    We should all be thankful that Nebraska is ranked so high...it makes us look better when we beat them in Ames.

    Was Nebby ranked when we beat them in Lincoln last year? That has to be it then.

    I think they were ranked the week before, then dropped out the week we played them.

    And Nebraska still does not have a QB. The defense may be deeper and more experienced but you just don't replace the most disruptive college football player that I have ever seen.

    Their defense will be very salty but the offense is still very suspect. Finally, from a conference standpoint, they will be facing some pretty hostile environments this Fall. It should be fun to watch.

    I won't argue this point with you, but why not use the 2002 Iowa State Cyclones?
