    I don't see getting Texas and OU late as an advantage. Steve's insinuation is that it gives Iowa State time to figure itself out, but this is the year we come in with few question marks. Texas and OU have question marks and the late games give them time to figure themselves out. Not to mention that an injury or two against at that point probably has a larger impact on us than on them, depending on the position.

    Honestly not a big fan of the conference schedule at all. I like getting TCU and OSU at home, but the timing of games is less than ideal. I'd rather see KU and KSU earlier too, not that it should make a huge difference.

    Alabama lost to ULM in 2007 and went 14-0 and won the BCS Championship with the Heisman Winner 2 years later! Just sayin'... :)

    That just means we won’t make the playoffs, but I’ll still settle for a Sugar Bowl win over Georgia.

    This is amazing. It's a feeling that I can't even begin to describe when I hear Iowa State as a contender and not a doormat for once in football and the loss of the "they're a fluke" tag.

    Well I don't know what's worse. So most of the the time we've played the underdog role and we always feel we have a chance but nervous at the same time. Now we're picked 3rd in the Big 12 and the expectations are mounting and that stresses me out too! Either way, can't wait!

    Texas in Ames in November is nice, though. I thought I’d never see it.

    I think he's vastly overestimating our run blocking and also the caliber of athletes. Improvements have come, but top to bottom we have nowhere near the athletes of Texas and Oklahoma. I'm just happy we have a real 2 deep now. It's possible we can win it, but it will take hard work, some lucky bounces, and probably some bad luck for some of our opponents. It looks like a fun season is ahead.

    CMC has his work cut out for him to keep the team focused and not looking to the outside world.
