    I could see this. I could see KSU and WVU flipping, but you really shouldn't bet on WVU late in the season. Maybe TCU a notch higher?

    I couldn't decide on TCU. I feel as though I don't know anything about their personnel.

    Maybe Baylor is still ahead of us, but we are going to be pretty good. I expect 7 wins this season.

    For discussion sake, kindly name the wins. I've got ... UNI, Akron, Ku, Tech and TCU, with BU being a stretch six.

    Woah nelly.

    UNI
    Iowa
    Akron
    KU
    Tech
    TCU
    Either Baylor or WVU. Both very beatable, but both on the road so I'm calling for a split.

    I agree, and think Matt Rhule will be Big 12 coach of the year. That was a great hire for them.

    BU is a stretch but Iowa is not possible? Why can't we beat Iowa in Ames this season?

    To be frank, I had intended to make it BU/Iowa and didn't.

    The last three times ISU has lost to a ranked UI team in IC they've won the game in Ames the next season. Beating UI is a perfectly rational pick.

    I agree. I think the path to a bowl is this exactly. But it does make you wonder if a 3-0 start could push us to seven wins.

    UNI, IA, Akron, KU, Tech, WV/Tx, KSU/TCU. That makes 5 wins and 2 more maybes. Maybe this yr we'll beat the Wizard. In all reality I'm hoping for between 4-6 wins.

    I think we pound EIU in Ames this year. They lost a lot and are attempting to put in a new offense. We are returning a lot and are in year 2 of a really good coach's program

    They lost a few good players, but let's not get ahead of ourselves here.

    No QB, no WR, and they lost their 2 best defensive players. It's going to be a fun game.

    ? They went 8-5, looked good in some games awful in others, got pounded in their bowl game, lost some good players and have an untested QB. We're playing at Jack Trice.
    Kinda think it's OK to expect to win?

    I predict we'll beat Iowa as well, but usually when we win it's a close down-to-the-wire game. It'll be the same way this year.
