    Paper Tiger, Part II

    Hello from Pantherland, Cyclone fans. Once again, it is time to call out a paper tiger.
    First, it was the Hawkeyes, now it's on to a once proud program in the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

    I've been wrong more than I care to remember, but I wasn't wrong on my assessment of the Hawkeyes and don't believe I'm off on the Huskers. With adequate special teams play (which would be a step up from last week), the defense we saw against Iowa, and mistake free offense, the Cyclones should take this one.

    This is the 2nd of three paper tiger alerts for the Clones. Good luck this Saturday! Husker fans may be worse than Hawkeye fans...if that is possible!!

    Phillip Dillard will start for McKuon. Cutlhbert will be moved to linebacker for speed. The speed was lacking in the linebacker corps. The other teams ran away from them. And Ruud is usually out of place. Should be interesting. Could go a long ways either way. A good Clone start will cause the crowd to sit some more like the last 2 games.

    Re: Paper Tiger, Part II

    Pantherpower, who is your third "paper tiger"? I'm thinking Texas.....

    Anyways...I've been saying all along that NU isn't that good, and they have proved it so far this year. If we can play as well as we did against Iowa, and get it into the end-zone like we did against Toledo, we should win this one.

    Yes, Captain, that should be the next "logical" step.

    Yes, the cat's out of the bag. The third paper tiger is Texas. At last glance, they're trailing KSU 7-0. Hang in there, Clones. Within striking distance to start the 2nd half!
