    Who benefits more from the bye week...

    Texas or ISU? I watched the replay of the ISU-Iowa game today and it got me jacked for the game next week. With that being said I think its more important for ISU in that to my knowledge they have some more healing to do than Texas although I'll be honest and say I have no clue what injuries Texas has.
    Also, do you think Texas will be using part of these two weeks putting in Oklahoma prep?? I really hope we catch the Longhorns looking ahead to Oklahoma--it will be a fun night in Ames

    ISU just because we have some starters that could use the extra time to heal.

    Re: Who benefits more from the bye week...

    Texas looking good against UCLA and having Oklahoma next might really play in our favor. Especially since we had some key players that could use the week to rest up and get back to 100%. If we use the extra week to work on not turning the ball over and not causing penalties I think we win this game. I also think Texas is more talent than coached up players, I think the extra week does more for us.

    It helps both teams. Iowa State has been through three down to the wire battles so we need the rest.

    Texas benefits because it gives McCoy/Ash more time to to adapt to being with the first team offense

    Re: Who benefits more from the bye week...

    Rhoades is not a Fan of the Bye Week. Also, this is the first bye week for ISU football in a while. I'm not sure how good of a team we are coming off bye weeks. Typically teams are slow and sluggish coming off a bye week.

    Re: Who benefits more from the bye week...

    I think the bye week helps out ISU a lot, because it's been an emotional past two weekends. If we try going up against Texas on raw emotion alone we'd probably get slaughtered.

    Re: Who benefits more from the bye week...

    Benefits ISU more, needed to heal, gives the Coaches a full extra week for the biggest game of the season, Rhoads may not like Bye Weeks, but we need all of our best players playing and I like the idea of getting some extra work for Jantz, he is been equally bad as has been good, the good has been great, but against conference teams - no way we can have the bad and have a chance to win

    Re: Who benefits more from the bye week...

    I heard somewhere that Texas has had 25 true freshmen see playing time this year. If that's true then Texas benefits from the bye week more than ISU since the freshmen have 3 games to study and gel as a team. I think our chances of winning are around 30%.

    Hope we heal up well!

    Re: Who benefits more from the bye week...

    ISU benefits.

    Clones got time to overcome injuries. Texas has time to feel good about their "impressive" win over a bad UCLA team and marinate in their press clipping juices. With what we've seen out of the ISU defense so far, Texas will be in for a surprise.

    Clones up, Horns down.

    Shorter preparations favor the more athletic and talented team.

    Longer preparations favor the better coaching staff and harder working, more disciplined team.

    The Cyclones will benefit more.

    Wrong. Rhoads himself said he loves bye weeks. It gives the team time to get healthy.
