How about this for measuring progress this season: W/L compared to teams from last year.
ISU has the following common opponents from '07:
Last year's record versus the above: 3-4
Right now we're 1-0.
KU and Mizzou are probable losses, even in Ames.
KSU and CU will be challenges on the road.
It's still too early to judge the Cornhuskers.
Of course, we can never hope to compete with the On-The-Cusp-Of-A-National-Title Hawkeyes, so that's an L.
Even 4-3 will be a success in my book.
We will update as we move along.
