    I am confused? We just lost our 2 easiest games this season.

    Tulsa or Kansas. Pick one of two. That'll be the Paul Rhoads upset special.

    Four. That is the best my optimistic side can do.

    Not until we fire Mess. Then we probably win the rest of our games.

    Tulsa looks beatable. But they dominated us in the Bowl. This team has been on a downward spiral since the JK injury last year.

    Tulsa looks pretty ******, but so do we. If we get a win that's where we get it. Kansas is a possibility too.

    Tulsa is going to pound the rock and we still will have to score 28 points to beat them, which I can't see happening. The O line injuries are really killing us, especially since it was a weak group to begin with anyway.

    I see the same two possibilities......Tulsa and Kansas, but those could easily be losses. It is not that hard at all to envision a win-less season.

    Tulsa and Kansas. Big 12 is down also. We will win 1 or 2 others.

    Do we get our center back for Tulsa? If so, then I will say we might do something that game.

    We have what, 12 days until Tulsa? that's plenty of time to prepare a winning game plan. Plus, I will be at the game and will help Mess on what to call with CF's help. Time for the fan's plan to take over!

    Uniguyforcy was giving people crap 2 weeks ago about people being down on this team. Now 2 weeks later here he is talking about 0-12.... I think its quite possible but I think we win 1.

    Honestly? Don't see it. We just played the worst team on our schedule. If KU and Iowa play ten times, I think KU wins 6-7 of them.

    I honestly don't see how we do. Missouri State scored 14 points on Iowa's defense at Kinnick. We BARELY scored 21 at home. Missouri State. I hate to tell you guys, but regardless of how well our defense plays we are going to need to be able to score more than 21 points a game to win. I don't think we can.

    0-12 is possible without a doubt. This team looks bad. They show signs of being able to play at times. I will be there all season hoping that this is just a young team that needs to mature. D improved I would say and the O showed signs of life in the 2nd half. Hard to tell how bad it is simply because we haven't played a D1 level team yet. We had chances in both games. Let's hope that we aren't back to the 56-7 days against OU etc.
