    K-State Game

    I really think this game comes at a good time for ISU. Starting the conference "2nd season" and the excitement of playing at Arrowhead is something the team can get up for this week.

    K-State gave up 447 yards to Missouri st. but their defense seems to be doing well on 3rd down, holding UCLA to 3-13 and Missouri st 9-20.

    This game was huge last year but I think it's even bigger this time around. We NEED this one! I know it's hard and I know it sucks but we need to get up and look forward. This is what makes us Cyclone fans.

    I think the kids will come out punching next Saturday. KSU has some talent, but they're very beatable if we play the way we should.

    Re: K-State Game

    Umm after watching what happened to the D-line today...I doubt much will be different. Thomas is going to run all over us. Sorry but get off the Kool-aid.

    I wouldn't be so sure of that. KSU doesn't have the offensive line that Iowa does. Any running back could have had a good day behind that offensive line.

    Kansas State =/= Iowa.

    Period.

    This is a completely different team and a far less talented one. We can gear up for the run in this game because Kansas State has no QB play to speak of, none, nada, zilch.

    I still think this game is a toss-up. We can take this one.

    Thomas<<<<Either Iowa RB. If he doesn't get 100 next week I'll come to Ames and eat crow.

    Re: K-State Game

    K-State is a must win. Lose to K-State and we lose the season IMO. Luckily, beating K-State is pretty simple. Stop Thomas, beat K-State. Easier said than done, but still pretty basic.

    Re: K-State Game

    The combo of Daniel Thomas and our rush defense is not a favorable one for Iowa State.

    It's not great, but a one dimensional offense is.

    Re: K-State Game

    k-state will move the ball at will, so we need to force at least 3 turnovers. our offense has to slug it out and dominate this game. arnaud looked to franklin alot today, but couldnt hit him. he has to hit franklin next week in order to win. k-state kinda let our TEs run free last year.

    p.s. we have the worst punting unit in the nation

    This. Although we are going to need to tackle better than we have in the first two games, but still think this defense is going to show a lot of improvement as the season goes on.

    Re: K-State Game

    KSU is a good team, but forget that we just played Iowa for a second....We just played a top 10 team. That is something KSU definitely is not. We match up much better with them and they don't have the consistency through all positions that Iowa has. Is it gonna be an easy ISU win? Heck no. We have a ton of improvements that MUST be made, but it is a very winnable game. Time to get a short memory and move on. 2nd life, conference play! We NEED to do our damage in the big 12 north this year. We're still a good team people. LOTS of season left to play. I cannot wait to get into KC!
