actually we lost suh, asante, ohanlon, and dillard. any other players that we lost may have started 1 or 2 games but they were not full season starters and are thus not actually considered starters. NU lost 4 defensive starters.
I don't doubt CPR's ability to get the Cyclones going in the right direction and winning games in the future. However, with the schedule this year and the athletic disparity between ISU and UNL/Texas/Iowa, I don't see us winning any of those games. I still believe we'll go .500 by beating NIU, UNI, Utah, Colorado, Kansas, and KSU, and go to a bowl, we just won't beat the top of our schedule this year.
