    Re: Leading Rusher Through 3 Games

    I seriously hope ISU can find at least a noticeable increase in non-QB rushing production.

    On the flipside, I didn't realize how evenly distributed the receiving stats are through 3 games:

    Re: LOL

    2001 and 2005 could be considered "mild" upsets, but Iowa fans would probably spin it even more, by claiming that, in 2001, Iowa was better because it bounced back after the loss and its bowl game,...

    Re: LOL

    I'd be perfectly fine with Super Bowl claims if the theory was that it means more to ISU than Iowa (although it can't be measured, either by fanbase or the teams themselves). But this is complete...
  5. Re: I say we we win these 5 games and become Bowl eligible

    It ought to be attainable.

    I'm not among the settling-for-mediocre-is-always-OK bunch, but think of it this way: ISU lost badly to a supposedly "ought-to" non-conference team (you know, FCS) and...

    Re: Grantland article on Cy-Hawk game

    Late to the thread, still reading the article, but the "It doesn't work" link embedded in the discussion of the kicker-icing is going to be interesting. And it's likely to reflect what I've believed...
  7. Re: Is beating Iowa really all that fun anymore?

    "Fun" may be a stretch, but it at least qualifies as short-term joy. And it beats losing to Iowa, every time.

    Also, if you're an ISU alum whose time as a student fell entirely within that 15-year...

    Re: Thomas & Nader to miss 2 games

    "Experienced depth" could be a minor factor for first two games.

    Serious concern about losing is probably extreme. However, Oakland or GSU being within striking distance in the second half...

    Re: ISU vs Iowa prediction..

    At the risk of being wishy-washy, I foresee two possible outcomes:
    * Iowa State wins 33-30 in OT
    * Iowa wins 31-13

    Re: Hogue gets a nice mention

    To extend that another level, Niang got mentioned in some of these "undervalued" lists last season and that took a few months to kick in.

    So now ISU has a player who wasn't even on the "unsung...

    Excellent column.

    CF provides plenty of strong material, but Blum's writing is consistently my favorite.

    OP's question is framed as "what's the ONE thing ISU must do better to win." It's tempting to list more than 1, which a lot of us have already done in this thread. It's human nature.

    That's possibly interpreting "X-factor" too loosely. Perhaps we assume his impact is a given. But he is the primary "unknown" player whose contribution MUST be a positive, if we want...

    Re: Athlon, Sporting News rank Cyclones 14

    True. I remember so many years recently when I'd look at the preseason mags and their top 25's & projected tourney fields, and think, "It'd be so cool to be part of these lists once in a while."

  19. Re: Peterson: ISU would benefit from dropping Iowa game

    Yeah, playing Iowa is the only thing keeping ISU from bowl eligibility.
