Iowa State can be good next year, but things will have to click. Our OC who is in his first year needs to show a lot of improvement at playcalling.. and Rohach has to step up as a freshman at QB. Hes RSing this year, but signs seem to be pointing to him jumping Barnett as the starter next year.
So it might be a year where we take a step back to take a few steps forward.... but I still wouldn't expect worse than 6-6 next year. A lot of promising prospects on offense who are in their first few years of the program... but there wont be much experience.
