    Upset Special? Hear me out

    So, it was one year ago this coming weekend that that the ISU football team walked into Lincoln, a place they hadn't won at since the 70's, coming off of two losses in the previous two weeks. We did the unthinkable and walked out with a victory. Can we do it again? The odds are stacked against us, but crazier things (8 turnovers) have happened before. Who knows, there IS a full moon this Saturday...

    Motivation will not be an issue in this game for sure.

    Oooohhh boy. I think a lot of things would have to go incredibly right for Iowa State to pull off an upset at Texas.

    Like last year against Nebraska, Texas will need to be at their absolute, bottom-barrel worst execution - and we will need to be at our most exceptional, perfect best - in order to have a shot at winning.

    I dont think we were at our most exceptional, perfect best at Nebby last year.. We had a backup QB and RB playing and not playing that well. But 8 turnovers will have that effect. But I know what you're getting at.. we will have to have execution similar to the Texas Tech game and get Texas' wost game and probably some lucky breaks though.

    Yup, and hell everyone was puking on the sidelines too.

    Obviously it's going to take a miracle, but it doesn't mean it can't happen. How many expected the USA to beat USSR in Lake Placid in 1980? Or Joe Namath and the Jets to beat Unitas and the Colts? Crazier things have and can happen.

    As for the motivation, I would think it wouldn't take much for the Forgotten 5 to play motivated against Texas and Nebraska. Not saying they'll win, but we should definitely see more effort than the poor showing the last two games.

    Re: Upset Special? Hear me out

    Aren't you also the guy that kept posting about how both Utah and Oklahoma were "untested" up to this point and, as such, ISU could pull off the win?

    If so, I think revoking your thread-creating privileges needs to be looked into...

    Why not have hope? Sure, the chances are past extremely slim, but why not have hope? Long as the game is on the field, might as well go in thinking we have a chance.


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

    I read in an earlier post that a boy took his parants grass to school. Was this your grass? I think you've been smoking some good stuff. I just hope our teams psychy is not totally destroyed after these last three weeks.

    Re: Upset Special? Hear me out

    I will never say never after what happened in Lincoln last year but I will not have my hopes up either.

    Could you imagine the Texas sized meltdown if that were to happen! I would have front row seats for it too.
