    HYPOTHETICAL

    If you would be able to win only one game at the start would it be the #1 NDSU Bisons at home, or at home to the KSU Dinosaurs or on the road to the Iowa Hoks? Pick one.

    Why did you choose that team?

    Kansas State

    Conference win > Non-conference win

    It would leave OU as the only team CPR hasn't beaten

    I would rather go 0-3 non conference and win 6 conference games. I am tired of only winning 2-3 conference games.

    Kansas State because Bill Snyder can suck it.

    Definitely Iowa. Their schedule is so incredibly weak that ISU could actually ruin their chances at a BCS bowl game, and we don't want to hear about that for the next 5 years.

    KSU. Besides last year, most of the recent games have been close, with KSU coming out on top due to superior coaching.

    I would pick NDSU. Can you imagine lakes if they wind up beating us? It would be unbearable since the mods don't have the cajones to ban this idiot troll.

    Completely agree with a conference win meaning more than non-con, but I'll go with NDSU. Cannot lose to an FCS school 2 years in a row, or ever again for that matter.

    Why do these hypotheticals never include an option for win all three? :smile:

    They already have no chance.

    I agree. Although I'd put their chances the same as any other school in the country.

    Trick question, if we are good enough to beat Kstate, we will beat Iowa and NDSU

    Very good question. As an Iowa City resident, I'll take Iowa. But it would be K-State if I lived somewhere else. That said, losing to NDSU (in spite of their acclaim) would be really bad.

    NDSU. In this scenario we're only winning one game, so beating Iowa won't matter. They'll be just as terrible as before.
    I understand why you'd choose KSU, but I've never had problems with their fans, and then we also have to hear crap from Lakebison. So that leaves NDSU

    Wow.....That was depressing to see their schedule. Thats about as easy as it gets.

    First 3 games at home.

    In my opinion they only have 3 tough conference games. All at home
    NEB, WIS and North.
    I would expect a 9+ win season out of them.
