AMES, Iowa -- The focus for Matt Campbell in his first season at Iowa State was about stability more than victories.The Cyclones didnt win much this season. But there were plenty of signs that they might start winning more as soon as 2017.Iowa State (3-9, 2-7) finished the year with a 30-point home loss to West Virginia , a game that got away from the Cyclones in the second half. But Iowa States improvement from September to November was impressive enough for its long-suffering fans to feel some sense of hope heading into next season.Weve made incredible progress from when we came in here to where were at. Those things about records and scores are all -- again, I get it. Thats what were measured by. But the reality for me is where we were and where were at. Campbell said. I saw us get better week in and week out.After just two games, it looked like the Cyclones might not win a game at all. A home loss to FCS school Northern Iowa was followed by a brutal 42-3 defeat at Iowa, the worst result in a long history of bad results for the Cyclones in that series.Iowa State finally broke through with a win over San Jose State, revealing something about both Campbell and the Cyclones. Campbell played two quarterbacks extensively in Joel Lanning and Jacob Park, defying the long-standing logic that a team with two quarterbacks is a team in trouble.Park emerged as the primary signal-caller. Lanning shifted from a starter to a run-first backup, and instead of dividing the Cyclones it made them better and the team backed their young coach.Behind Park and Lanning, Iowa State scored more average points (29.4) in Big 12 games than it ever had, even if the wins were scarce. Still, the Cyclones beat Kansas and Texas Tech before the loss to the Mountaineers.The reality for this team is (that) some of the foundations weve laid of attitude, effort, playing hard all the time, consistency of those things are really important to me. Because I know that without that, youre building a program on falsehoods, Campbell said.Park, Lanning, 1,00-yard receiver Allen Lazard and running backs David Montgomery, Mike Warren and Kene Nwangwu all return next season, as does much of a talented secondary. Campbell has also recruited well, with a 2017 class set to be the best the program has had in recent memory.Iowa State will lose six starters from a defense that allowed 31 points a game. But with 10 underclassmen listed on the depth chart for the finale, help should be on the way.The offensive and defensive lines will need work. A bowl game in 2017 isnt out of question, though, and that would bring the once-downtrodden Cyclones one step closer to fulfilling Campbells bold proclamation after losing to the Mountaineers.At the end of this, were going to win a championship in the Big 12, Campbell said. I look forward to it. The best is yet to come.---More college football at www.collegefootball.ap.org---Follow Luke Meredith on Twitter at www.twitter.com/LukeMeredithAP Kyrie 2 Shoes White .

Kyrie 2 Shoes Cheap .com) - The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks both take aim at their first wins of the season on Saturday, as the Canucks open their home slate at Rogers Arena. Kyrie S1 Hybrid For Sale .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. West Coast coach Adam Simpson admits his team wont make much of an impact during finals time if they dont get out of their current funk, but hes not panicking just yet.The Eagles (12-5) enter round 19 just percentage adrift of second spot following a five-match winning run; all against sides below them on the ladder.But their patchy form during that streak has been a huge concern, with the absence of star ruckman Nic Naitanui telling.West Coast were lucky to notch a six-point win over Melbourne last week after losing the inside-50m count 66-37.Naitanui (Achilles surgery) wont return until next weeks clash with Fremantle, meaning the Eagles will need to come up with a different way to generate enough attacking opportunities against Collingwood at the MCG on Saturday.A loss to Collingwood would prove disastrous to West Coasts top-four hopes, and Simpson is well aware the stakes are high.But rather than panic, Simpson said it was just a matter of helping the clubs mid-tier players rediscover the form they displayed during last years run to the grand final.I would have thought a few have dropped away, Simpson said.We need them stepping up.Our good players are playing well at the moment, we just need a few more contributors.The Eagles will start as favourites against both Collingwood and Fremantle.But their top-four hopes will be put to the test in the final three rounds, when theey take on GWS (away), Hawthorn (home) and Adelaide (away).dddddddddddd.Simpson knows his team need to get out of their recent funk if they are to be a legitimate challenger for the premiership this year.You would have thought were not going to progress too far if we continue to play the same standard were playing at the moment, Simpson said.We understand that every game is critical for us at the moment because were fighting with six other sides for two or three spots up the top there.The challenge for us is we want to be a consistent top-four side, and were not there yet.I dont think having one good season gets you that right. Were still working towards that consistency with our sustained success.It doesnt necessarily mean youll win a premiership every year. But if you can be a contender and up amongst it, thats our ultimate goal.West Coast havent beaten Collingwood at the MCG since 1995, and Simpson said it was a challenge his team would embrace.Collingwood were dealt a triple injury blow when Alex Fasolo (shoulder), Jarryd Blair (groin), and Ben Sinclair (concussion) were all forced out this week.West Coast recalled Dom Sheed for his first AFL match of the season, while Will Schofield, Mark Hutchings and Simon Tunbridge also return to the side.
