    Here is why we beat Missouri

    It's a pretty simple formula: when we can run we can win. Texas Tech, Texas, Kansas, almost Nebraska, NIU: in all these wins (or near wins) we moved the ball effectivly on the ground.

    Missouri has trouble stopping the run(57th in the nation). They gave up over 200 yds (not totaling sacks) to KSU last week, 141 to KSU's back up QB. The week before they let Tech...yes Texas Tech...run all over them including a 128yd performance by Barron Batch. And the week before...well we all saw what Nebraska did. I think we will rev up our run game and smash them in the mouth with Tiller, Arob, Woody and Shontrelle.

    Other reasons to believe:

    We have more to play for. Bowl eligabilty, Austin Arnaud, Senior night. Missouri is pretty much out of the North race and is simply jockying for bowl position. Not saying they won't be motivated, but for us it is life and death.

    Paul Rhoads has never lost three games in a row

    We are 7-1 in night games at Jack Trice

    Jerome Tiller is 2-1 as a starter...really 2.5-1 if you count Baylor last year. He is no slouch coming off the bench

    28-17 ISU.

    The exceptions that prove the rule?

    Re: Here is why we beat Missouri

    Most of those teams couldn't throw the ball. Teams that could throw basically destroyed ISU. The lone exception was TT and their D was so bad that they couldn't keep up with our running game. I hope that people aren't getting their hopes up here. I'd be surprised if ISU is within 3 TDs of Mizzou.

    Re: Here is why we beat Missouri

    We certainly have more to play for. The difference between 10-2 and 9-3 doesn't really change too much in the bowl picture, with Missouri's bad travel reputation.

    This game is going to be like every other game we've played this year. If our line shows up and controls the line of scrimmage, we have a great shot. If not... See: Iowa, Utah, Oklahoma, Colorado.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Cmon... we need some POSITIVE thoughts here! On paper, we probably shouldn't have been within 3 TD's of NU or Texas, but you never know. If there's anything I've learned about CPR coached teams, it's to expect the unexpected! (Unfortunately, last Saturday probably falls into that category.) Hey, if we play a solid game all around I think we've shown that we can hang with anybody. We gotta have faith that our boys are going to have the game of their lives and come out of this one with a W.

    Re: Here is why we beat Missouri

    Hopefully, the team, and especially the OL, rally around the idea of playing for Austen Arnaud.

    If the whole team shows his kinf of fire, we can do all right (I think).


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

    Biggest thing from the call in show tonight, Rhoads made it very known he EXPECTS a HUGE crowd on Saturday.

    He should expect a huge crowd - our bowl season is still in reach and we're playing for our lives here. I really hope our fans deliver and pack the place and show CPR and the rest of the team that we're in this til the bitter end right along with them.

    Watching the replay of the KSU and Mizzou game......ummmm.....Mizzou is horrible against the run. Some Klein guy played QB for KSU, they made him look like Taylor Martinez.
