Chris’ Take

This isn’t something to get too ticked off about Fanatics. We should have all seen this coming. Iowa State really does have the toughest schedule in America this season. When you combine that with all of the new faces on defense, the media picking the Clones sixth is not a surprise. It is just more motivation for this team that will have its back against the way each and every Saturday.
