    Remember last year?

    Utah - 27-68
    Oklahoma - 0-52
    Texas - 28-21

    I sure as hell am gonna be in the stands when TAMU comes to town. Oh, and might I add, same week as last year?

    I'm sorry, but it's just not going to apply to this year. I would love to eat crow, but I just can't see it at all. Texas A&M will beat us soundly, they are a good team who has lost a few close games. OU I just hope to stay within 60 of them. I hope to stay within 50 of OSU. Kansas State and Tech are possible but both are road games are very unlikely that we'll be within 2 touchdowns of either team after 4 quarters. Kansas is our only hope left for a win.

    That was actually my first thought after the game. That being said, not seeing it happen, but hey... you never know.

    Re: For those who think the sky is falling

    A good coach make sure his team is humbled not humiliated by big losses like this. I expect both sides of the ball to have a chip on their shoulder for this game. But then again I expected that for this game too..

    Utah - One of the best teams in the nation last year
    Oklahoma - One of the best teams in the nation last year
    Texas - Not a good team last year.

    Texas A&M is a top 25 this year. What is the point you are going for?

    Re: For those who think the sky is falling

    So because historically, the sky is almost always falling during football season, we should feel better?

    Re: For those who think the sky is falling

    I'm not going to give up on this team (or any ISU team, ever). I do believe Coach Rhoads will find a way to circle the wagons and get back on track. A bowl is considerably harder, but I think we can beat TT and KU. After that, it's a matter of stealing one more. Tough, but possible.

    Tech is beating KSU right now.

    Re: For those who think the sky is falling

    One other (slight) positive note: Sagarin's predictor had this as our second-most difficult game all season. (Oklahoma is by *far* the most difficult.) Missou is much, much better than their record.

    But still. That was not good.

    I'm just disappointed that in year 3, we've had three straight blowout losses. Granted Baylor wasn't a total blowout.

    Re: For those who think the sky is falling

    I predicted a few weeks ago Iowa would be 6-2 and we would be 3-5 after 8. I think I am going to be right and hate it.
    I thought we would go 4-8 and told an Iowa Fan that was freaking out that they suck but will still go 8-4.

    I think its very disappointing how we are losing. We look like we don't even belong in the conference.

    Here is what is going to happen:
    ISU 14 - A&M 52
    ISU 24 - Texas Tech 48
    ISU 28 - KU 17
    ISU 17 - OSU 45
    ISU 10 - OU 58
    ISU 17 - KSU 38

    4-8

    That sounds about right.

    I think maybe that's the problem, the Sky fell on Ames in the 40's when we helped develope the Nuke. We are now paying that price. There are only so many times that you can say the sky is falling before you have to say, "Yup, it hit the ground and it's in Ground Zero is Ames."
