    KSU -4.5

    Well folks, the Iowa game is done and gone........our record is 1-1 and KSU is up next. I see the opening line is -4.5, which means Vegas thinks ISU is going to bounce back.

    My concerns would be KSU's running attack which has looked good so far. And if AA can shake off the Iowa game and regain some sense of being a QB that belongs in the Big 12.

    My heart tells me, ISU returns the favor of last year 24-23, but my brain is saying KSU 31 ISU 10.

    Thoughts on the game?

    Re: KSU -4.5

    If our offense can do better than 3-and-out and give our D a break we win.

    Count on it.

    Re: KSU -4.5

    KSU has not been playing well on defense to start the season. Gave up 22 points to a UCLA team that was shutout in its own house by Stanford this weekend and 24 to Missouri State.

    Something tells me we have to hang 30 on these guys to win because of Daniel Thomas. If we don't do it then we are in for a repeat of 2006.

    Not sure how we are favored here. I almost wish we were not.
    Either way...If they can beat K-state we are back on track.

    We aren't, bud. K-State is favored by 4.5.

    Re: KSU -4.5

    We won't be able to stop K-state's run game, IMO. It could be a very long day if AA and the O can't bounce back and score some points.

    Re: KSU -4.5

    We are battle tested now which I like.
    But we also got taken behind the woodshed and I am worried about a hangover. And im worried about what that beating did to our confidence.
    Rhoads' task of the year will be getting us ready to play for this huge game on Saturday.

    Re: KSU -4.5

    We need to get off our butts and win this game. No excuses...play like you know you are the better team and find a way to win. If we still play like we were on our heels last week..... we are going to be in for a long season....one in which we roll over.

    I just don't see that happening.... we will come out and rock them.....we better at least.

    Taking KSU seems easy... but easy money would be Iowa -2 vs Arizona

    Re: KSU -4.5

    I was one of those cool-aide drinkers who thought that we would possibly win 8 or more games ... now I would be happy with a couple of wins. I wouldn't count Rhodes out though. Hopefully we just had a one game meltdown and the rest of the season will be good!
