    Anyone else think this game is setting up like Oklahoma State last year?

    I think the situations are very similar to the Oklahoma State game last year. Nice weather, coming off an emotional win, I hope I am wrong.

    I don't know, last year we lost to A&M before OSU. With a quality team like this, gotta come out strong and even then...


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    I was thinking this exact same thing....although I think that with Arnaud actually getting into a rythm against T-Tech, vs not playing at all in last year's win at Lincoln, it may help swing this game in our favor!

    This one is at home and Utah hasn't proven anything yet. OSU had a solid team last year. Not even the same situation, IMO.

    Is there a 50 point mercy rule in college football that can be applied at this weekend's game?

    OSU felt like a blowout the whole way, even leading up to it.

    Maybe I'm wrong, maybe I'm not, but I don't have that feeling this week. I don't see us winning going away, but I don't see us going away, either.


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

    I don't think anyone thinks we will beat them by over 50, so what is the point of asking?

    Don't feel good about this game at all.

    Hope I am wrong.

    I feel the first quarter tells the story of this game. If we go down 14-0 fast then it will turn in to OSU. If we are tied or within a touchdown it will come down to the 4th quarter and which team has the most mistakes.

    Ummmm. Last year we were not coming off an emotional win. We had just been **** pounded by aTm.

    With that said, I would hope the staff and players learned that they need to sstay focused after a big win or they can get **** pounded like they did agaisnt aTm.

    I agree, its like they say your not as bad as you think you are (after Iowa when people said we will go 2-10) or as good as you think (after beating TT, we are beating a top 10 Utah team and winning the north)

    OSU was at home. In section 18, about 20-25 rows ahead of me, we had a silent guy all dressed in his black and gold. Winner waited until the game was out of reach, jumped to his feet and yelled "GO HAWKS!!!!" and probably some other niceties.
