    This is A New Era

    I've been reading through these threads and all i see is fear. I'm sick of it. We should all expect to win this game against CU. This is the Paul Rhoads Era and hes not going to let us lose this game. This is the biggest game of season as far as i am concerned. So enough of the "past stats" of CU or us. This is a whole new era and has nothing to do with what CU has done 5 years ago or what we have done 5 years ago. Who cares if CU use to be good in football? They're not good this year and were half way decent. We all need to have the mind set of we are going to win this game. Thats what we should think every game. We should have the mind set of every player on the team. They think and know they are going to win. We need to have that mind set as a fan base. I'm tired of all the "past" talk of teams. Lets move on and get our ***** to another bowl. GO CLONES!

    As an ISU fan, I've learned to be cautiously optimistic and not take anything for granted.

    Re: This is A New Era

    How many people on here were fearing NIU?
    How many people on here predicted a win at Texas the week before?
    How many people on here were fearing a letdown against Kansas?
    How many people on here predicted we'd come within a play of beating Nebraska?

    I'm predicting nothing but an ISU victory Saturday. The culture is changing and our football team is finally gaining a winners' mentality. Can't wait for the game.

    Im not afraid of the colorado game only because of what happened 5 years ago. I am afraid of it because its a game on the road vs a team that is better than its w-l record might indicate. They very well could have won the KU, TTU, and Baylor games, and be 6-3 right now.

    Can we win this game? Absolutely. And i think we will. But there is plenty of reason for us to fear CU. They're not a total pushover this year.

    I'll give you the other two, but NIU has lived up to preseason hype, and there WAS a letdown against kansas.

    Re: This is A New Era

    Given our history, I don't blame anyone for being concerned. No matter what, I sense a tough game ahead.
    The difference for me is the pride or whatever that CPR has instilled in these guys. I believe that when we get to crunch time, our guys will respond and theirs won't. That will make the difference, and we'll go bowling.


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

    Re: This is A New Era

    According to a poll on this site, 15-20% of our fans thought we were going to lose to UNI. There's a portion of our fan base that has a bad feeling about every game.

    Can we lose to Colorado? Yes, absolutely. Should we lose to Colorado? No, absolutely not.

    Re: This is A New Era

    there should be no reason our PLAYERS aren't confident for the game. Our fans will be conservative, however.

    I think its an awesome opportunity to go out to boulder and put an ***-kicking on the buffs. Could be 28-3 at half and 42-10 final. Great opportunity.

    But i see it being closer to 31-17

    According to CW's prediction thread, over 30 people chose the Cyclones, and 2 or 3 chose the Colorado. I guess I don't understand where all that fear you speak of is coming from.

    We are so lucky to have SUPERFANS like yourself to rally the troops!!!!!!

    People think that their fan mentality transfers to the players. What you think (good or bad) means nothing.
