ISU vs. Iowa ...who's gonna win & why?
I'm already taking heat at my office from the "Hawkeye closet" telling me how bad Iowa State is going to lose in Iowa City this year. I'm looking for a collection of "Cyclone Smak" that I can fire back with. Let the Blogging begin!
Yikes! I can't think this far ahead. It's hurting my head. Let me get through next Thursday and I'll let you know!
IMO, nothing you say is going to make them change their mind.
I say ISU wins this game. I like the match up we have of our offense over their defense. I think tate could get rolling and be dangerous but I would be more worried about AY getting hot. I think we need to key on AY and force them to pass. This might come down to a kick. I really hope shaggy is feeling clutch this year.

Not in CO anymore but I'm not changing my name :)
Other than Chandler, I'm not that worried about their passing game. Who else they gonna throw to, Herb Grigsby?!
As far as smack, ask those turdcakes if they didn't learn from talking so much last year? All week long they spoke foolishness, and they were delivered a firm cardinal and gold, back-of-the-hand pimp slap for their troubles.
iowa state because tate doesnt have much to throw to this year. CFN ranks iowa's recievers unit 56th in the nation (isu is #7). I think D Jackson is going to have a good game with the other dbs.
isu will win. Why? Because we are ISU and they are the UofI. Simple really.

Iowa State....Because we're #1!!! (I think it was on the radio where I heard a Hawk fan call in and say that Iowa would win and when the host asked why he said "Because we're #1")
I'm going to concentrate on Toledo and then UNLV and THEN Iowa. We have to take it 1 game at a time...(I hate that cliche by the way) :D
Yeah, I'd like to see the first 2 games of our season before making predictions on what to think about the ISU vs. Iowa game.
I wasn't too optomisitic last year, and we know how that turned out. Anything can happen, really.....
On second thought...Iowa will probably beat themselves...which in default will give Iowa State the win. And here's how:
- Tate will throw 5 interceptions and on the 5th will tackle DJack with his head. Iowa will be down 52-3 at that point but would have come back if Tate would have stayed in the game because he would have regrouped after interception #5 and thrown for 11 touchdowns.
- Iowa is down by 4 touchdowns and kick their first field goal. On the ensuing on-side kick, they get called for being offsides. By rule...the player is offsides but it isn't "usually" called by the officials...but that doesn't matter. How did Iowa get down by 4 scores anyway??? Must be the officials...
- Iowa owns Iowa State so how could ISU have won for the 7th time in 9 years...
You must listen to Zabel cycloneworld, because anyone listening to Zabel knows that ISU has never beat the Hawks. The hawks only beat themselves by not showing up. Ignore the fact that Berryman was the real reason that Tate was to the point of a concussion. To have that big guy on you every down is scary.
ďAlso, I met a lot of Iowa State fans and I donít want to leave any of that behind.Ē - DARIUS DARKS on Staying a CLONE!!!

I was in IC this last weekend and they are just sickly confident over there. I went into a liquor store and I had an ISU hat on the guy behind the counter turned on the Iowa fight song. They donít think ISU will be within 5 TDís. That Sunday I was out to eat lunch with my parents and they are Iowa fans and my dad had on an Iowa shirt and I had an ISU on one the host and our waitress at Bennigans just made rude comments to me about being an ISU fan right in front of my parents. My dad might be the only Iowa fan who thinks that ISU will win because when I donít say anything about the game that is when he starts to worry that ISU is good. I think ISU will win 35-24.
Blum wrote an article on CN that contained some nice smack talk. I found it quite humerous. The smack talk is number 4 on his list of things but the whole article is a good one. Here is the link:
People of this board have given you the perfect ammunition... because you don't care about the Iowa game till the week of... The Iowa game isn't the focus for ISU right now... maybe for Iowa fans... this is the most important game and that's the game they are excited for so they are trash talking already... but to ISU... it's just another big checkmark in the W column.... but if you're like me and really want to talk smack back... you can keep subtly bringing up the numbers 23 and 3... for example... "hey guys... are you guys getting less emails in the morning than usual too? I've noticed that the average number I get each morning has dropped from twenty three to three" And seeing how there's a lot of them at your job... just say, "guys... this isn't the place for me to trash talk as I'm outnumbered... the ratio of Hawkeye to Cyclone fans is at least twenty three to three"
keep bringing up statements like that and give an evil little grin each time you say it... note though that many of these hawkeye fans are slow and you might need to add the statement, "kinda like the score of last years game" after everytime you say "twenty three to three"
Even down here in Houston, I am getting smack from all of the Hawkeye fans. Even though it has been ISU's series through out a decade, Iowa fans still think they own us. Their best lines are
1 Atleast we can play in bowl game after the New Years
2 atleast we can win conference games
3 your whole season is beating the Hawks and then you play like s**t.
I would rather beat Iowa the next 20 years instead of participate in a bowl that is higher "rated" than a Big 10 affiliated bowl the next 20 years.
It will always be that the Big 12 is stronger than the Big 10 (get over it my Northwestern, Illinois, and Indiana fans)
And even if we dont win any Big 12 games, we still outright beat You,!!

Uh, the team that scores the most points?
ISU vs. Iowa ...who's gonna win
'Cuz usually, the team that scores the most points gets to add a "W" to their record.
