    Re: Nebraska game just became so MUCH BIGGER!!!

    I am so proud of this football team but I cant help but think if we beat kansas next week we'll pull a Utah game against Nebraska. Everyone will be pumped for that game and then a letdown will happen. Dont get me wrong im pumped right now but I keep thinking about that damn Utah game.

    I know this is way ahead of ourselves but I believe with an NU and Mizzou loss today, we control our own destiny for the North (assuming KSU loses 2 more).

    Keep in mind as long as mizzou loses a big 12 game before us, we are in control of our own destiny in terms of the big 12 south.

    I was thinking the same thing. Perhaps maybe a 2:30 kickoff on ABC? It definitely makes for a nice little story, considering we beat NU last year, NU lost to Texas this year, and we beat Texas this year.

    If NU wins today, you gotta think it will be one of those 6 PM games. The Big XII schedule that week is pretty weak.

    I was thinking the same thing, but I didn't want to say it. If we win out, we're North champs. Not likely, no. But today wasn't likely either.

    Yeah, let's not set ourselves up for a letdown vs. KU (or at least a letdown bad enough to lose the game).

    Win that, then see where the chips fall. If ISU gets over that trap game, I think I like our chances in the last three games. But lose that game, and it negates the momentum from the Texas win.

    The team can't look forward past the KU game. We're fans. We can look forward as far as we want, we arent playing the game.

    Re: Nebraska game just became so MUCH BIGGER!!!

    I don't believe in must wins, a Victory at Texas was proof of that yet again but putting together an impressive performance against Kansas could be huge for the remaining games on the schedule. I am sure Kansas feels the same about ISU as we do them and expect to win this next game. Need to show up this week before even thinking about Nebraska

    It will be difficult to stop Martinez, he is fast. But I think we an do it if we played like we did today.
