    not gonna lie. i think we get rolled today

    i know i will be berated for posting that but last week was a real eye opener.

    look at what iowa did to us on the ground. we couldn't stop them to save our lives and iowa's OL was pretty much their weakest link. KSU has a much better running game than iowa does.

    on top of that, we are down a LB and have zero depth. once our starters get tired, look out, because we have no quality depth.

    now, iowa's passing game is much better than KSU's, but their QB has thrown 4x as many TD's in half as many throws. run,run,run,run, PA pass for td.

    our offense doesn't seem (so far) to have any big play guys besides our backfield. stop the run and you stop ISU.

    just my opinion and i hope its wrong, but i just don't see it happening today.

    Re: not gonna lie. i think we get rolled today

    Unfortunately, I think we're going to get rolled as well. Our defense is too young and now being depleted by injury. We made Iowa's offense look a lot better than they actually are, especially their rushing game. We're just too young and undersized on defense.

    Our offense is not playing as we all hoped they would. This season is shaping up a lot like 2006. We had a lot of experience on offense returning and thought they would be the strength, but they struggled. We knew at that time we has lost a lot on defense from 2005 but thought the offense would overcome that, but they couldn't.

    Re: not gonna lie. i think we get rolled today

    And our O-Line is so great?

    You say Iowa's weak point was their O-Line. And our strength is our D-Line? We were supposed to leverage this?

    Clearly we have to game-plan on offense far better than we did against Iowa. But If KSU were as good as Iowa was on each side of the ball, well they'd be in the top 10, too.

    I think this is the game that tells us what this season is going to be like. A poor showing here with little creativity on the offensive side will probably mean it's going to be a loooooooong season.

    Re: not gonna lie. i think we get rolled today

    We will see, but I think a lot of Iowa's offensive success was due to our offense not being able to give the defense a breather. K-State's defense is no where near what Iowa's defense is.

    I'm confident that this will at least be a close game.

    Re: not gonna lie. i think we get rolled today

    So, stop our run game and you beat us? Do you realize that it's the same key to stopping KSU? Our defense is not good, but I do think it's better than what was shown last week. And while the jury is still out on what Herman can do, we do know that Wally has proven he can coach up guys with lesser talent.

    As for this game, KSU is practically a mirror-image of ISU. Our strengths are their strengths and our weaknesses are their weaknesses.

    I think we win, but wouldn't be shocked if we lost. I would be very surprised if we got rolled, though. If for any reason, because when you have two teams that like to run the ball, there's usually not enough time on the clock for there to be a blowout.

    Lets just say this. If KSU gets up early, say 14-0. We're done.

    Re: not gonna lie. i think we get rolled today

    I don't have a good feeling about the game either. KSU will be able to pound and ground. The offense is going to need to finally put it together today if we want to have a chance. Put together some longer drives to help rest our defense, and finish the possession with TDs.

    I would hesitate to say KSU has a better running game than Iowa, if it's better it can't be by much. Iowa has been regularly putting half of its offensive lineman into the NFL, I saw nothing on saturday to say that is changing. Robinson is a solid back and Hampton is a much better second option than most teams have. They are going to be better because of giving each other a breather.

    I really think Iowa's offense is vastly improved from last year due to Stanzi and the WRs coming of age. There have been times Iowa has been overrated, but they deserve to be top ten this year, probably higher than they are now.

    People, IOWA WAS A LEGIT TOP TEN TEAM PLAYED ON THE ROAD, sure we could have played better. But we have lost on the road to Texas, OU, Missouri and Nebraska when they are top ten and people just shrug it off.

    Iowa isn't in the same class as Texas, OU and Nebraska. Not sure I've ever shrugged off a loss to Missouri, we should never get rolled by them even though we have in recent years.

    Think it will come down to how well AA can bounce back. Hopefully, he can resemble Kaepernick's play lst night.

    How old our you? The Nebraska of the last decade has not been near as successful as Iowa in that time. I would argue Iowa is more successful than Nebraska as of late. Now, if we go back to the 90s there is no comparison, but we are not in the 90s anymore.

    Re: not gonna lie. i think we get rolled today

    I agree with the "we're gonna get rolled crowd".....With a defense who cant stop anyone and an offense that is "For Interception Only"....Its gonna be a long day for our Cyclones...
