    I believe that iowa state will win out and be 8-4 for the season . Texas is very winnable , Kansas is well kansas, and K State is very up and down. Even though the losses have been close to be 8-4 for three years in a row is a great accomplishment. Anyone else have a comment?

    Absolutely. They won’t I don’t think, but I think they beat Texas and KU. 7-5 still isn’t bad at all and a chance to pick up 8 in a bowl.

    I think we can, but don't think we will... May be my old demons, but I think we end 7-5

    Just based on the Iowa State factor, I'm going to go with 7-5 to finish the year but a bowl win for 8-5.

    Yes...but do you really think "Kansas is well Kansas..."? We will win, but wouldn't want to take it that lightly this year. And heck, KSU is playing better than most expected.

    It's possible. I said before the OU game that Campbell has the program to where they can compete with anyone, and sure enough they were right there with a chance to win it at the end. I'm nervous about the K State game but three in a row is for sure a possibility.

    I think we can. That K State game just screams dog fight to me though. Toughest game left on the schedule

    If the Oklahoma game can spark us to play full games there is no reason we couldn't end up 9-4 after the bowl game. K-State will be tough and I believe we should get a pretty winnable bowl game with the Big 12 probably getting left out of the playoff, everyone slides down a spot.

    Thinking I'm gonna road trip it to Manhattan. Should be a fun atmosphere, have had good times with KSU fans. Most are like ISU fans. Appreciate when they get success and annoyed with instate rival.

    This is the correct answer. We are certainly capable but considering all the mistakes in prior games (penalties, turnovers, not using running game) what is the likelihood we will avoid all those mistakes and win the last three - probably not likely.

    Nope.

    Wait, I did the math again. I was wrong. If ISU wins each of their remaining games, they can win out now.

    If we figure out how to catch INTs then yes. If not, then we will still beat KU. 50-50 in the other two.

    They CAN but it'll be tough and they need to figure out how to win a close game.

    There's good in that they haven't played a complete game yet, but in November you start to wonder if that's going to happen.

    Saying ISU will win out is more concise...

    Yes, if they play without the TOs or the penalties. And if Eisworth can play...that helps too.
    No, if they don't.
