    Is TT a MUST win? What happens we WIN?!?

    I personally think its a make-or-break-season game for us. I had us at 2-2 in my realistic record prediction at this point. I also thought beating TT is realistic at the time (unfortunately with our offense, its not looking like it at this time.) I had the remaining 3 MUST wins over TT, KU and CO.

    IF WE DON'T WIN: Do you think we go bowling? I would say Hell NO, unless we can steal a victory over MO or something.

    IF WE DO WIN: I think we need to stay optimistic and try to go 2-2 for the next 4 games (Utah, OU, UT, KU).

    I personally think CPR has something figured out for TT. I say our defense comes up big again making it a very low scoring game - something like another 9-7 win for Iowa State.

    Also, is this game going to be on TV? What is the likelihood that it is?


    WE ARE IOWA STATE

    One of the next two is a must win. Since TT looks to be the easier of the two.... I would say yes

    Re: Is TT a MUST win? What happens we WIN?!?

    Yes, gotta have this one! Our players and coaching staff need to proove to the rest of the conference that we can be competitive with the upper/middle half from time to time.

    Offense, please...please show up for this game and make us all happy! Defense, more turnovers please. Go Cyclones!

    If ISU does not win, you almost have to have at least 2 wins between Utah, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas. Impossible, no, but I have trouble right now seeing us winning any of those games right now, let alone 2.

    If we win were going to have a great head on our shoulders going into the tough part of the year. We need to win.

    After the TT game the next four are not "impossible" wins, oklahoma, texas do not look like bcs teams and are struggling, i think we can pull off an upset of a ranked team this year.

    Re: Is TT a MUST win? What happens we WIN?!?

    Logically, we pretty much need it.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Wired thing, in my head we can beat Texas but not Tech.

    Need to win at home. Plus beating a team from the south.

    Re: Is TT a MUST win? What happens we WIN?!?

    if we don't win: I will understand. Tech is a pretty talented team.

    that will pretty much ruin our chances at a bowl game, but thats sort of expected. 5-7 isn't a bad season with this team and schedule.

    Re: Is TT a MUST win? What happens we WIN?!?

    If we want a shot at bowling this year and if we want to earn some respect in this conference, we need to win this game.

    Re: Is TT a MUST win? What happens we WIN?!?

    It's a must-win because we missed the "must-win" vs. KSU.

    Every game is equally important. But this is one of those "fine-line" seasons, considering the schedule. Unless you win all the "could-win" games, you have to grab a "probably-won't-win" victory when you can.

    Going 2-0 against Tech & Utah would be a major advantage. I won't write off beating anybody on the schedule after that. OU is unlikely, Texas is beatable, Nebraska & Missouri games are at home, for what it's worth, but that's probably 1-3 at best. Only KU and CU look manageable in the second half, but there are no guarantees

    If the team is 4-2, postseason looks entirely within reason. Anything less, I don't like the odds.

    Yes, to go bowling we need this but my sense is that the KSU game sunk our bowl hopes already. Now we'll have to beat TT, KU, CU and Utah/Mizz/NU...
