This is kind of what we expected to happen in this part of the season. Did we think we would lose this badly to Utah and Oklahoma? No, we thought we might put up a fight, but fortunately the bottom line is the same, an L.
We've got 5 games to win 3 more. A tough road trip to Austin, which doesn't look as difficult as it did at the beginning of the season, is next week. Then we get the rest of the North all in a row, 3 of which are home games, the other at Colorado. The season isn't over yet, and there is still hope to get to a bowl game, which is the goal.
It takes time to build a football program. You can't go find one guy or coach that will completely change a program in one year, it's all in the recruiting process and getting that extra practice time for a bowl game. I think Paul Rhoads will get us there.
I don't think any level headed Cyclone fan could have had us at any better than 4-3 right now. I agree, record-wise we're right were I figured we'd be at this time, I just had the Kstate and TT games swapped. The severity of the losses stings but no one should be shocked we can't hang with top 10 teams.
The only bigger turnoff than finding out a woman smokes, is finding out she's a Husker fan.
I think it is also easy to forget that Utah and OU were out to make a point against us.both teams kept their starters in with a 30+ point lead.
Both certainly have reasons to want to make a point and feel disrespected by the polls. Look who OU has played compared to the other undefeated teams that were above them. Theyve got a great resume of teams beaten, but not a whole lot of teams that they just destroyed.
