ISU is 2-9 with a chance to beat WVU to end the season 3-9. I don't think many people are excited about that best case scenario at this point. I'm not thrilled with it either. However, I choose to look at it this way. Texas was a win and even Texas knows that. We should actually be 3-8 right now. If the TCU game was 1 minute shorter or we made 1 first down when we needed it, 4-7. (We are 1 play and a bad call from being 4-7) If KU can beat WVU we have to have a decent chance to beat WVU which would be 5-7. We don't lay an egg vs. UNI..... 6-6 - bowl game I know, what ifs don't matter. The reality is we are 2-9. But this team that is so young was really not far from being in a bowl game despite our record showing otherwise. The only real stretch on that list is UNI as they kicked our butts all over the field. Do I think this team belongs in a bowl game, no. But it's not as bad as it seems. I thought the offense was getting plays off quickly last night and our D was playing with heart. Carry that through to WVU and let's look forward to some of these young guys playing with a year of experience under their belt next year. Add some exciting recruits and I'm optimistic. I know the preferred tone around here is negative so I'm sure people will not accept any kind of optimism.
