    It's pretty crucial in 2011 too. :)

    Are we going back in time? Title should read 2011


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”

    I'm working on a history degree, and I don't think a game 10 years ago has any bearing on this coming season.


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

    I am in complete agreement with the level of importance this game represents. We chose to travel to this game for that very reason. I am expecting it to be a very competetive game.

    I agree with your assesment CW. I would feel much better if the game were in Ames but I think that CPR has gotten the road jitters out of this team with wins @ NU and UT.

    Bottom line is that ISU needs to be AT LEAST 2-1 going into the TX game with wins over UNI and either IA or UCONN (preferably BOTH!!).

    Yea doesn't matter how it happens but a bowl game rides on being 2-1 in nonconference play. Sitting at 1-2 would leave very little margin for error.
