    Good read on the Texas 2010 disaster season

    Sounds like Mack was way overconfident going against us and the loss sent shockwaves through the program

    Re: Good read on the Texas 2010 disaster season

    I had to read this about 5 times, just for pure joy.
    That point bore home in particular during the week of the Iowa State game. Leading up to the home game against a Cyclones team that had never beaten Texas, Brown told his players behind closed doors that they all knew they were going to win the game. That was a given.
    "Oklahoma just beat these guys 52-0," Brown told them, according to a source who heard the lines. "We have to match that. We have to make a statement."
    Instead, Texas managed only a field goal in the opening half and was held in check in a 28-21 loss that reverberated around the nation. Muschamp blew up at Davis for questioning his defense afterward.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    The Texas game is going to be HUGE next year..no reason to think we won't have a good shot at beating them in JTS. Our guys are going to have confidence and if we get any kind of momentum...look out. Could be a huge day for the program.

    Re: Good read on the Texas 2010 disaster season

    I have to say that the quote they put in there didn't really make it seem like he thought it was a given that theyd beat us, just that he thought they needed to kill us like OU did

    I had a good friend that coached high school in Texas and he thought Brown would never win a National title. He was wrong but this article is why he felt the way he did. He felt UT players were spoiled and soft. With the facilities, everyone catering to the players and them being spoiled, they had an arrogance and felt entitled. He also used that to explain UT players lack of success in the NFL. Have you ever noticed that even though a lot of Texas players get drafted, a majority flame out or underperform?
    Nothing in that article surprises me. Nothing.

    Re: Good read on the Texas 2010 disaster season

    I love recruiting Texas/Oklahoma players that have something extra to prove when we go up against the big 2 in the south...we may never have their facilities, but our players have twice the heart and determination. I was in Disney World when that game happened and it was prolly one of the happiest days of my life. I would love nothing better than to start a winning streak against Texas this year. It'll take a lot, but I know CPR and Co. are up to the challenge.

    Unfortunately, I have to agree. We got their attention while we were kicking them around in their own house. We will not sneak up on them again.

    Yeah, so? 99 out of 100 times, Texas beats Iowa State. I'm still very proud that I got to witness the one time.

    This. I'm hoping we'll be 2-1 after a split with Iowa and UCONN. We get two weeks to prepare for Texas and it should be good weather with a big crowd...beating them for the second year in a row would be huge.

    Poor Texas, hope you spoiled brats have another stellar year. Beating them last year was huge for our coaching staff and our program. Beat'em again next year Clones!

    I vote for a freak september snow to set the tone for the day!



    No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference. ~Tommy Lasorda

    Re: Good read on the Texas 2010 disaster season

    As I said in an earlier thread that got thread-jacked and surprisingly very few comments that agreed, this game more than any other next year is going to be a game where Texas has painted the bulls-eye on ISU all offseason.

    Sure, they will have us marked as a target next year, but the reason for it makes me extremely proud.
    One of my favorite days watching Cyclone football!


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