    We will beat UNI...don't panic

    I got grilled in my thread this week saying we should not take Kent State lightly. Now the point is not to have a full fledged panic attack. I believe we will beat UNI next week in a sparkling comeback for Meyer and Iowa State. In fact, the score won't be that close. We'll see tremendous improvement over this weeks game. That doesn't make us world beaters, but respectable going into the Iowa game.

    If UNI keeps the score within 14, ISU will be lucky to get 3 wins this season.

    People who think there is no way we can lose to UNI need to stop posting. It shows your ignorance. We can lose, we can blow them out. All are possible.

    Re: We will beat UNI...don't panic

    Damn, I love the optimism, but I have to admit I'm a little worried. Luckily, it's a long week w/plenty of time to prepare. I'm giving the entire team a mulligan for last week, and looking at UNI as the first game of the season. Kent State was a chance to execute the new system in live game, and hopefully some kinks will be worked out by next saturday.

    Re: We will beat UNI...don't panic

    I said we'd beat UNI, Iowa will be another story. With their HUGE offensive line, their QB will have unlimited time to find a receiver. Even a third-string QB can do well under those conditions.

    That makes no sense in light of the fact we beat them by 2 last year and still won 4 games.

    Re: We will beat UNI...don't panic

    We COULD have beaten Kent State but we didn't. One correct change here or there, one right call here or there, FG that goes in here or there, etc. and we could have won that game. I think we have the same chance of beating UNI, it will come down to us executing the gameplan whether or not we win or lose, but we can't take UNI lightly either, TRUST ME - UNI will be ready to play.

    Anyone who thinks we will blow past UNI is not all there. They have talent at all the skill positions and a qb that is better than ours. Dont be too cocky for no reason. Don't forget that they outplayed us last year and we won by inches.

    Well... I hope UNI won't be tougher.... They had their hands full last night with Mn St. That too was a very close game through 3 qrts. Didn't see what the final was.

    By the way... Mn St is located in Mankato and I dont think they are a scholie team.

    Ok... 20-14 through three quarters. Uni pulls away late because probably more depth and players.


    I posted this in a different thread but seriously did anyone else notice that UNI had there hands full for 3 qrts against a team that didnt' deserve to be on the same field as UNI.

    Re: We will beat UNI...don't panic

    We cannot take UNI lightly. I would love to see the defensive line step to the plate and push the o-line of UNI around. There were times that the defensive line looked good in pressure, but for hte most part, they were subpar.

    Or if the O-line doesn't get called for false starts on two critical occasions maybe those two drives go for touchdowns and we're looking at a 14-0 lead. We'd be looking at an entirely different situation, with Kent St on the ropes early. Yeah, that didn't happen, but it's speculation.

    Guys, UNI is good this year, they should contend for the national title. I am freaking scared.

    They have a lot of the same people they did last year. It will be tough. A good test for our defense.
