Yeah, it's not looking good for Miles in the least. Six wins isn't looking very likely, but an average of 3 a year over five years? That should be your 3 non-conference games to get that. But losing to a second year (?) FBS teams. Not good.
21 Syracuse, 23 Stanford and 25 Nebraska all lost.
So Iowa State eases into the bottom of the top 25 for a "top 25 matchup" against Iowa. If we get an impressive win against Tulsa, we'll slip into the bottom of the top 25 for a "top 25 matchup" against Texas.
Well the Iowa State being ranked projection got blown out of the water. The ones ranked about them played and won this past week. They deserved. I guess I was a bit too cynical. Depending on the poll there are either 5 or 7 teams between us and the #25 ranking. We'll have to look really, really good and a few of those teams will lose. Will it be enough for use to slide into the 24th or 25th spot?
