    KU = trap game

    Last night was an obvious trap game after Texas Tech's big win over Oklahoma. The same can be said for this week's KU game. Although a lowly and less talented team, ISU cannot look past KU. The Cyclones need to start strong and not let their foot off the pedal. I'm a little leery of big heads after last night's big win.

    We've gotten spanked the last 4 weeks before this.. I don't think we'll have big heads at all, just some beneficial confidence boosting. So in short.. no.

    So Oklahoma got Texas Tech'd, then we Texas Tech'd Texas Tech, and now we are trying to avoid getting Texas Tech'd by Kansas.

    I agree with you that it would be classic cyclones to come back and lose to kansas

    Hard to be a trap game when it's the only game for a couple weeks to focus on. C'mon man.

    Re: KU = trap game

    Maybe not exactly a "Trap" game, but I'm nervous for it as well. After Tech beat Okla last week I said it's huge for us because they will come in with big heads. I don't want our team to do the same thing. In coaching, I see it all the time. I don't want us to get too comfortable and come out flat next week.

    We don't play, the players need to focus on the next game.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Re: KU = trap game

    Yeah I was thinking the same thing. I do think we beat Kansas because that is a pitiful excuse for a football team. (Who doesn't get more than 50 yards?) I'm nervous but I think we're 5-4 this time next week.

    I'm usually a nervous nelly pessimistic type, but I think KU has called it a season. Not too worried about next week to be honest.

    I hope we're completely focused on KU because even if we do stay focused and win it we need a major upset after that to be at .500. And that alone goes against the odds. If they don't stay focused (and win) that great upset is meaningless.

    Re: KU = trap game

    One only needs to watch the OU-KU game to see that kansas can be in the game if the other team decides to show up asleep at the wheel.

    However, when teams show up, KU is extremely bad. If we give half the performance we gave yesterday, we walk away with an easy win.
