    Considering it's not a lock for us to beat any of those 9 others schools I say yes.

    What??? Even Cyclone fans say, "hey, at least we're not as bad as Duke".

    One good season does not make up for a lifetime of ****** football.

    So there should be a way to ban answers.com links from this website. These are lists created by random people with no knowledge of ANYTHING they are creating. The format is also absolutely idiotic and built for advertising dollars. I'd rather read and support Bleachreport or Hawkeyenation.

    THAT SAID... we very well might be the worst historic power 5 conference team. 777 other football programs throughout the country at all levels have hit 10 wins in a season... we are the definition of mediocre at best historically.

    For past 100 years, they are deserving to be there. Duke and Vandy have had a lot of stinky years. Indiana is getting better.

    I hate to say it, but yes. ISU needs to prove they don't belong there, but this may not be the year for that.

    They shouldn't. Duke has had more than one good season. That's where ol' Steve Spurrier made his name as a head coach. He did OK.
