Both seem too high. Both teams have decent starters at several positions, but the depth is not there for either. That is the is the difference most of the top teams take advantage of, stacking 4 star kids on the bench. Iowa has a bunch of 2/3 stars on the bench and ISU is worse than that. Like ISU to go 8-4; IA 10-2. Toss up game in Ames, but ISU is definitely due. Should be a good game.
I know we’re all speculating as we’re months away from playing the game.. But you have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about. Lol you have no idea the depth at Iowa State on both sides of the ball. Almost every single media outlet has us pegged as top 10 to start the year and play in / even win the Big 12 this year.

Every single thing you said above is based on pure bias.

We bring back essentially our ENTIRE roster that just made the Big 12 Title Game and won a Fiesta Bowl.

He said we have a poor bench, yet our backup RB from last year gets drafted in the 3rd round and our backup defensive end from last year led the nation in sacks and is being talked about being a top 10 pick next year.

Again, it’s just ignorance and bias.

ISU will have a damn good team this year, no doubt. I think he’s just trolling.

Got any 4 star linemen on the bench, specifically DL? What about the special teams guys? It is not a knock on ISU, there are only about 10 teams that recruit like that. Its why when I watch the NC game every year I am reminded how unlikely it is to ever get there. Remember when Michigan State got in over Iowa several years ago? MSU had a good team, got absolutely manhandled by Alabama. That is the difference.
Definition of moving the goal posts.

So then are you saying the Hawks start out 0-2 then win 10 in a row? Guess it’s possible since they will be into the heart of the BIG west part of there
Schedule at that point!
