    By beating Illinois and San Diego State? Those two teams are horrible. Illinois was 2-7 heading into today’s game. SDS may end up being an OK win but certainly not something to hang our hat on.

    So you would have rather ISU lose those games?

    Looking at the Non-Con, I had us at 11-2 which we still have a very good chance at ending at. I just looked and Ole Miss arena only holds 9500 and they only draw around 6000 (so far). Hopefully they will be struggling about then and the crowd stays away for our game too. If we can get to 9-9 in Big12 that should definitely be in, maybe around 8 seed depending upon KC performance.

    No but I took exception to the statement that we were really good in Maui. We lost to a mediocre team and beat two poor teams.

    Please show where I said ISU was really good in Maui.

    Although is winning by 16 and 30 good or bad? Did you need it to be 25 and 40?

    They needed to have success there. They did.

    Having "success," which is what the poster said, is not the same as "really good." Going 2-1 in a prestigious tournament widely seen by potential recruits with announcers talking up the program is definitely what most people would call "success."

    I agree, not worried at this point considering who has been available to play. Looking back at the loss at Iowa in 2016-17, ISU made the tournament and into the second round. Iowa didn't make the tournament and lost a close one to a ranked Purdue team.

    Cannot agree that this game is not a rivalry.
    Sucks that eiu beat us in football, men’s and women’s basketball, wrestling and volleyball this year. And wrestling was the closest!

    Pretty much the way every other year (generally) although even then the final score talley is usually close but this years like a Hawk sweep. Next year almost all the matchups will be in Ames, so advantage ISU on paper. The volleyball one was the one that was unforgivable IMHO. Maybe not so big an upset in the future as we look to be trending down in VB. Now, if we ever lose in cross country I'll need some serious counseling!
