    Toledo..at 0-3 look very beatable

    The Toledo Rockets come at a good time for Iowa State. They are 0-3, with three blowout losses so far this season. Loses have come to:
    Purdue 52-24
    C.Mich.52-31
    Kansas 45-13
    Toledo has played 35 freshmen and sophomores in their first three games, and is obviously very young and inexperienced. This should be the weakest opponent Iowa State faces this season, so we all hope for a statement win. I don't see us having any problems with overconfidence. Just hope we can get into the endzone.
    My prediction: Iowa State 31 Toledo 14

    If ISU can keep up that kind of intesity they showed this past weekend, they can stick with anyone but OU this year.

    Yeah, Toledo is gonna get real pumped to try to beat ISU, especially while they're looking at the Kent State and UNI games.

    ISU needs to keep the emotional intensity up, and really do everything they can to eliminate the turnovers.

    We need to score some offensive touchdowns for confidence.

    Punch them in the face, first and hard. And then keep up punching, even if we don't have the muscle to hit them as hard as the first one, just to make sure they have a case of the "losers."

    Nothing will build confidence like getting your most convincing win of the season on the road.

    A nice conviencing win would be good - both for the team and to help make it worth the 9 hour drive out there to see it

    Re: Toledo..at 0-3 look very beatable

    Those games were blowouts, but Toledo scored touchdowns. Something we have struggle with. Im not sure if we can win with this one with just field goals. If we build on the intensity we had against Iowa I think we will win decisively with more offense.

    Re: Toledo..at 0-3 look very beatable

    Toledo is probably the easiest game on paper at this point for our entire season. We have to beat them.

    Re: Toledo..at 0-3 look very beatable

    I want to go to the game... I have a friend that lives 1 hour away, he has friends that graduated from Toledo who has tickets for us. But I still can't justify spending money on gas and food for this game.


    1100 miles roundtrip. Chevy Silverado Pickup at 15.5 mpg.. Lets see

    1100/15.5= 71 gallons @ 2.70/gallon= $191.00 alone for gas.

    I really need to make some more friends. Not really cause I need them, but someone to split the gas..

    Oh and to stay on this topic.... I think ISU will win, but I'm hoping it will be an impressive win and not a close game. Everyone else seems to blow them out. I really hope we can do that same.

    Re: Toledo..at 0-3 look very beatable

    Toledo has a porous defense. If we keep the same intensity from the Iowa game, we should be able to beat them handily. Otherwise, I'm expecting struggles as it is our first road game into a relatively hostile environment. It's no Kyle Field, but Toledo does have a significant home-field advantage.

    I think we see more progress on offense, but a few plays keep us from pounding the Rockets.

    24-21 ISU.

    Our win makes me optimistic, but our two losses remind me to be cautious. Its also the first road game.

    $2.70? Try $3.05 around here...

    BTW, Go I-State! I won't go out on a limb and say we're going to crush them, but I'm feeling much better about this game as it gets closer.

    Fair warning: don't expect a win just because the other team is winless.

    Oh, we don't.

    We also don't plan on losing to a team that is on ESPN's Bottom 10 radar.
