I really don't think the outside noise is going to be a problem for this football team. Coach Campbell even addressed this potential issue at the Big 12 Media Day. He talked about how if they would've listened to the outside noise the past two years, they would've crumbled and not been able to do what they did. Nothing changes just because we have a little momentum. Coach Campbell is no doubt happy where he's brought the program but him and the other coaches are not satisfied.. They don't want the Alamo Bowl to be the ceiling, they truly believe this program is destined for better things and I'm buying into that as well. The past two years Iowa State's worst loss in a conference came (point differential) came to Texas last year by 14. The second worst loss is OU last year by 10. The rest of the losses have been by a TD or less. Almost every one of those other losses was also decided very late in the 4th quarter. I truly believe that with how our scheduled is lined up, we have a legit shot to make the Big 12 title game and if we get there, who knows what happens. I also don't think OU or Texas gets there this year with an unblemished record. I think both of them have question marks on their just like we do, and they're going to have to figure out some things. Our defense is going to keep us in every game and if our offensive line is as good as some are saying, our offense should be much more consistent, especially the running game. If we can get to that Texas game with one conference loss, I think we beat Texas at home and win out against the Kansas schools to make the title game.
