    Mixed opinions from the Husker fans

    Was just reading thru a Husker board, and there seems to be a mix of opinions about Saturday's game (duh):
    Confident ISU squad - HuskerBoard.com - Husker Message Board

    Obviously, there's quite a few (ok, most) that think they'll stomp us, but some that are still pretty worried. One thing's for sure... the fans certainly haven't forgot about last year's game

    ...several people mentioning they would get a kick out of seeing Iowa State/Baylor in the last Big12 title game.

    Re: Mixed opinions from the Husker fans

    Let's get one thing straight right now. ISU did not beat us. Nebraska beat us last year. ISU was the recipient of a ridiculously unusual number of turnovers in one game, almost any one of which would have given us the win had it not happened.


    Everyone can run up the caution flag all they want, but do NOT use last year's game as "proof" that they can beat us. "Any given Saturday" has more validity.


    We beat them by not beating ourselves/turning the ball over. Which, with a freshmen QB/RB tandem starting in an environment like Lincoln, it would have been extremely easy to beat ourselves.

    Now that would be awesome. 2 perennial Big XII underdogs going at it for the last Big XII (as we know it) title. Too early to get my hopes up, but man that would be sweet music baby......sweet music indeed. :)

    Re: Mixed opinions from the Husker fans

    From what i've seen, Iowa State has played much better with their backs against the wall than when they are expected to win or expected to play a very good team close.

    2009 Iowa... was considered kind of a toss up... got killed
    2009 Neb... considered a sure loss without AA and ARob... won
    2010 KU... considered to be an easy win... struggled at the beginning
    2010 Texas... no one gave us a shot.. won
    2010 Utah... expected to compete.. lost huge
    2010 UNI... expected to be a close game... won big

    2010 Neb... expected to compete/beat Neb... ... screams blowout loss in my opinion

    Well, the Huskers beat themselves off last year. I assume that their fans have been doing a lot of that this year from reading the posts...

    That would be the end of the Big 12 because I am pretty certain if it happened the universe would explode.

    Don't try and debate offensive/defensive matchups either. They're masters at that!

    Re: Mixed opinions from the Husker fans

    Screw Baylor. I'd love to see their season tank. Well, they can't take at 7 wins, but finish on a losing streak anyhow.

    Hope the Nebraska team feels like the Nebraska fans.

    Who expects ISU to compete? Pretty much everyone I've seen is picking Nebraska to roll.

    The fans believe they will stomp us. I wouldn't be surprised if they did, but they give us no credit for anything (beating Texas, beating them last year).

    Re: Mixed opinions from the Husker fans

    The "Redemption" factor in sports is severely overrated.

    Rhoads said it best in the press conference today. If we can match their emotion to start the game, it's just another game of football.

    Personally, I still think NU comes out flat.

    Re: Mixed opinions from the Husker fans

    *edit - Oops. I was going to post the phone call between NU and Texas here, but realized it's too naughty for all the 13 year olds on this site to handle. (As if they aren't going to click on the link anyways.) But I digress..

    It's worth checking out though... from Wide Right and Natty Lite. Scroll down near the bottom to "Texas calls up Nebraska."

    Language warning.
