    BEATING UCONN IS A MUST!!!

    UCONN is not as good as Iowa. However, the game is on the road and Iowa State doesn't play well on the road. CPR knows how to keep the team motivated for signature wins such as Nebraska (2 years ago) and Texas (a year ago). That said, we need to get into the mindset of winning on the road ESPECIALLY when we are on ESPN.

    We, as fans, need to move on and concentrate on UCON on our message boards. Iowa win was remarkable but this Friday we have a MUST WIN game. If we beat UCONN that puts us at a 3-0 mark. That is a tremendous stat. We need that momentum to take on Texas the following weekend. We have a very good chance of going 4-0 before we play Baylor. Baylor is way better than I expected.

    We want this win over Iowa to be meaningful for our season. Beating Iowa in 3 OT and not going to a bowl game will be VERY upsetting especially if this is the last time we played in BIG XII. Let's take care of business at UCONN. We don't have a very good record of winning games that are picked up by ESPN network. Let's get it done on Friday. Let's win!!!

    Re: BEATING UCON IS A MUST!!!

    The whole "Iowa State does not play well on the road" is a thing of the past...

    In the 12 games away from Jack Trice since CPR has been here, ISU is 4-8, and of those 8 loses, only 4 of them have been games that ISU didn't pay well in. Pretty balanced for a new coach; 12 games...4 wins, 4 competitive loses, and 4 non-competitive loses.

    We (fans) need to move on? Seriously? Wow. Because if we don't discuss UCONN enough the team just won't be up to play the game.

    The PLAYERS must move on and concentrate on UConn. Fans can continue talking about the game last Saturday

    uconn = connecticut

    ucon = iowa

    and yes beating ucon was a must and we already did it so this thread is pointless now

    Re: BEATING UCONN IS A MUST!!!

    This is an important game yes, CPR has a game plan and we should trust in him to get the players motivated to get the job done. I'm completely confident that after the motivation he gave the players for Saturday he can get us hyped up enough to take this game.

    all cpr needs to do is talk about what happened after we beat texas tech at home last year.

    we ran into a buzzsaw name utah.

    Re: BEATING UCONN IS A MUST!!!

    I have a feeling that the 1st quarter will be ugly from the Iowa hangover.

    At the same time, I have complete confidence that it doesn't stay that way, because Steele Jantz says so.

    I just don't see Steele Jantz having 4 bad quarters against UConn.

    UCONN's defense has been good. Their offense has left the fanbase with much to be desired. On their own board about half were predicting ISU to win.

    Re: BEATING UCONN IS A MUST!!!

    I can't help but think last week's game and in particular Steele Jantz's performance will give the team a huge boost of confidence.

    Now they KNOW that a good season is within their reach, if they can continue to play to their ability.
