The Cyclones were expected to be good in 2020 by ISU standards; a fourth consecutive winning season was likely. That may not sound like a big deal, but for a school that is among the worst in major college football over it’s history, it’s just that. But no one could have seen the year had coming, especially when they began the year getting dismantled by a Sun Belt team. But along the way they became one of 2020’s best stories, landing in the Big 12 title game where they took Oklahoma to the wire and then handing Oregon their *sses in the Fiesta Bowl.
It’s easy to see why everyone is so hyped about Oklahoma in 2021. Talent everywhere, and well… it’s Oklahoma. Last time they didn’t win the Big 12? 2014. Hell, they haven’t failed to win 10 games since ’96. But games aren’t won on paper or by the number of stars next to a recruit’s name, they’re won on the field by teams. And the best team in the conference this year is these here Cyclones. Brock Purdy is one of the best returning QBs in the country. Breece Hall might be the best RB in the country. Charlie Kolar is the best TE in the country. See a pattern? And it doesn’t stop there. The O-line? Yup, one of the best in the country. Same with the D. In fact, the only major weaknesses the Cyclones might have are self inflicted ones.
If Things Go Well:
The Cyclones aren’t just a threat to win their first Big 12 title…. ever…. but a legitimate national title contender. If they cut down the turnovers from a year ago, this could be the best team in college football.
If They Don’t
Something drastic would have to occur for this team to fall apart…. catastrophic injuries and such.
The Cyclones would be the favorite to hoist that trophy at the end of the year if they had on “OU” on their helmet.
