    October will be TOUGH

    Oct 1 - Texas
    Oct 8 @ Baylor
    Oct 15 @ Mizzou
    Oct 22 - A&M
    Oct 29 @ Texas Tech

    That is a brutal stretch of games. Hopefully we can get at least 1 W! We won't be favored in any of those games unless RG3 is out for the season.

    And with ha;f the november games against Oklahoma teams, it doesn't get a whole lot easier, although we will at least be favored against Kansas (unless we totally fall apart in said October games).

    If we come out of that stretch 5-3 we have to be extremely happy.

    Re: October will be TOUGH

    I am thinking:
    Oct 1 - Texas WIN
    Oct 8 @ Baylor LOSS
    Oct 15 @ Mizzou LOSS
    Oct 22 - A&M LOSS
    Oct 29 @ Texas Tech LOSS


    WE ARE IOWA STATE

    Exactly. That would give us 2 chances against Kansas and Kansas State to lock in 6 wins.

    Re: October will be TOUGH

    ISU needs at least 2 wins. I think Texas at home is a winnable game. I'm still not sure about Missouri either. I look at how close ISU played them especially the defesne at the end of the year last year, with any kind of a QB we would have won.

    Re: October will be TOUGH

    I honestly think @Mizzou is the most winnable game out of those 5 games. Franklin doesn't scare me at all. ***knock on wood****

    The way I look at it is Texas, Kansas and Kansas State are must wins.

    Re: October will be TOUGH

    I'll give my - unscientific - percentage chances of wins:


    Oct 1 - Texas 85%
    Oct 8 @ Baylor 40%
    Oct 15 @ Mizzou 50%
    Oct 22 - A&M 35%
    Oct 29 @ Texas Tech 50%


    So this means I'm counting on winning two of these, possibly three.

    I think we go 3-2. I'm not going to try and guess which ones we will win or lose but we will be 6-2 heading into November.

    Every team we play in October is beatable. It's about time we all start to believe it.

    Another reason why it would be splendid to get a Big 10 invite.

    85% favorites against Texas?! They will be around an 8 point favorite IMO. That's a 40% game.

    Texas is very possible
    Baylor doesn't have much of a D
    Missouri is down a bit
    A&M just pisses everyone off
    Tech isn't bullet proof

    I think we get 3 but I wish MO and Tech were in Ames.
