    I was talking to my father-in-law (who is a huge Hawk fan) last night and he asked where in the Big 10 conference ISU would finish, I thought 5th behind OSU, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Michigan State. He thought 4th behind Wisconsin. He lives in Eastern Iowa and he said alot of Hawk fans actually think ISU would be a solid team in the Big 10 this year, what do you guys think, is 4th about right?

    I think that's pretty accurate, maybe ahead of MU.

    Your definitely better than are Purdue, Illinois, Indiana, and Minnesota, so that moves you up to eighth.

    Your not as good as Ohio St, Iowa, Penn St, Wisconsin, and Michigan St.

    Somewhere between 6th and 8th in a group with Michigan and Northwestern...

    well the obvious ones we're ahead of Purdue, IN, IL, NW, and MN. so at least 7th...and give us possibly a win against MSU, MU, and Wisconsin.

    My vote is 5th or 6th.

    If ISU were in Big 10 this year I'd say:
    1.Iowa
    1. OSU
    3.Wisconsin
    4.Penn State
    5. Michigan State
    6. Michigan
    7. Iowa State
    8. Northwester
    9. Purdue
    10. Illinois
    11. Indiana
    12. Minnesota

    I could see ISU either 6th or 8th too, depending on if they play Michigan/N'westen at home or on the road. I don't see ISU beating any of the top 4 at home or on the road, however, I think they could get MSU or Michigan at home, but not on the road.

    Your father-in-law is a LIER.

    Hawk fans have ZERO respect for ISU and would pick ISU to finish dead last, right behind the Hoosiers and Gohpers.

    Didn't you get the MEMO. The Big 10 is "The Best FRICKIN' FOOTBALL CONFERENCE in AMERICA." :biglaugh:

    I think we may be pretty close to MSU as well. I could see anywhere from 5-9.

    Consensus seems to be in the area of 7th.

    I'm curious about our fictional W-L ... and whether it'd be better than our Big12 record this season

    Interesting thing to consider: If ISU was in the B11 right now, it'd be divisional. Let's assume it's set up East-West, and we have the "brutal" rotation, and similar to our B12 slate this season. What's the W-L with this:

    vs. Illinois*
    Penn State
    @Michigan
    @Ohio State
    Wisconsin
    @Northwestern
    Minnesota
    @Iowa

    *"neutral site" — St. Louis
    (Also note: Illinois is technically "home," the reverse of the KSU situation, for home/road balance)
