    THIRD time is a charm

    I predict that Paul Rhoads beats Missouri "OR" Kansas State on the road this year - probably not both. I like to think CPR has the Missouri game penciled in as a MUST win as well.

    I think Missouri is still looking for an identity as opposed to Kansas State. KState is every bit of good as Baylor is. But Missouri is still unstable or unsettled.

    Joining SEC over staying in Big XII has got to keep some folks talking more about the conference realignment than Missour's ball club.

    If the following three things happen, I have a pretty good feeling about CPR winning at his third try:

    1. Jantz play a complete game
    2. 10 yeard or less in penalty
    3. No turn-overs

    I am calling 28-17, Cyclones win.

    Mizzou is as close to a must win game for ISU than I can recall seeing in a long time.

    Re: THIRD time is a charm

    Mizzou is in a must win scenario as much as we are. Should be an interesting game.

    Re: THIRD time is a charm

    The problem is Missouri always gets the upper hand. I really hope this game doesnt come down to officials calls.

    Mizzou most defiantly does not always get the upper hand with officials. They might have worse luck than ISU in that department.

    Come to think of it, you might be right about that. I remember Danny boy's last game as an ISU coach. I honestly think that win was handed to us.

    Re: THIRD time is a charm

    We'll get jobbed on calls. The Big 12 doesn't want ISU in the mix at all. Just wait. Still, the team will have to try and play above it this weekend in Columbia.

    Re: THIRD time is a charm

    What is a "must win"? What if we don't win? I don't think we will, so I am curious.

    Must-win in the means that if we dont win its gonna be hard to get to 6 wins.

    Re: THIRD time is a charm

    Not to be that guy, but if this weekend is considered a must win then I don't like the teams chances. Visions of last years play against Colorado and Missouri comes to mind, and it doesn't seems like this team under Rhoads have been able to handle must win situation or expecataions for that matter. I'm not saying that he can't, he just hasn't been able to prove it yet.

    I can see that. A win makes it possible, very unlikely.

    OU is adding a third digit to their scoreboard, OSU is probably requesting Jamie do the same here in Ames.

    Tech and Kansas are the only remaining "winnable" games I see.

    So we are not going to beat Kansas? What about A&M on homecoming? Tech? Oklahoma State on a late November night with lows in the 20's? Kansas State is always a good game. The only sure loss I see on the schedule is Oklahoma. The Mizzou game is very winnable if we control the clock and run the ball. We just played the #1 offense in the country and actually we did not do horrible. 1 td was a fumble return and another td should have never happened (fumble that was ruled an incomplete pass).
