    I had this game marked as a loss pre-season and had us going 8-4. Unfortunately, I also had us beating Iowa, so we’re going to have to not drop another unexpected (from my preseason predictions) and also pick one up from OU, Texas or Kansas State.

    I should know better than to regain hope after giving up hope.

    The chatter about competing for a conference title was overblown. This program and talent level isn't there yet. The returning starts on the O line got picked up by the national pundits and got hyped into ISU not missing a beat after losing David and Hakeem. The truth is this is still a patchwork line with pieces left over from the prior regime. One of our tackles had three? holding calls today against a very average Baylor front. We have an historically good QB (struggled today), a defensive line that is one of the best in the conference, great linebackers etc. but we don't have an offensive line and a running game to complement. We lose the turnover battle and we are screwed. UNI and Iowa were not outliers. It is what it is

    I asked earlier...does ISU have a hurry up offense?

    Because when there's like 25 seconds left to get 50 yards covered, going at normal game pace doesn't work.

    Offense and defense both can play well, but never seem to do it simultaneously for more than 15 or 20 minutes at a time.

    Yep called it, knew at halftime this team wouldn't win. This team will not win 6 games this year. Easy team to predict, therefore easy team to beat.

    You don’t get the take? If they’re not very good then ISU isn’t either considering they just lost.

    If you all didn’t see the “kicker who has never made a field goal only to hit a game winner” coming after
    Our touchdown. You have not been a Cyclone football fan very long

    Unfortunately, I don't think this Baylor team is very good.

    They’re not. They barely beat a horribly trash team in Rice...

    They should win at least 6, but the lack of running game is a problem. Even more problematic we still haven't found a feature back through 4 games.

    I really really don’t want to see how badly Texas and Oklahoma will kill us. Or even Oklahoma State..

    Before we totally panic and abandon ship, I find three things to consider.
    1. Last season we were 1-3, and those losses didn't look pretty (OK, we were still playing revolving door with qb)
    2. We probably had some hangover from last week, where we just started to thread their defense, and now facing a tough defense it was a huge step up in a challenge to meet.
    3. The heat today was unbearable and the treatment by Baylor versus ISU was not just unfair, it was potentially a safety issue. Once the field was almost entirely in shadows, our offense came alive.

    Re-read my post. I was agreeing with you.

    Yes and I’m as guilty of being hopeful about Manning as anybody but he hasn’t helped at all. The run play design is still poor and so is the blocking execution. Our RB’s are only average but they have not much to work with. This is especially true when Brock makes terrible reads and keeps the ball for no reason.

    If I have to watch another failed 4th and 1 out of the shotgun, I swear I'm gonna have to shank a *****.

    (For the folks that take everything literally, I'm joking... But it is very frustrating)

    I told everyone after the UNI game our running backs are the poorest in the entire conference. The dropoff from Montgomery to them is substantial and the reason why they will probably finish 6-6 or 7-5 again. Nothing I saw today changed my opinion on that.

    Frankly the product on the field had been a disappointed so far given the expectations.

    He's had how many years to replace them with someone better.... but hasn't yet.... so that's on CMC.
