    COULD NEXT WEEK BE AN.............

    even bigger win if CPR and the boys come up big against OU? Or is there no way we can top what Cyclone Nation experienced Friday night?

    Go Cyclones!!

    It would be a bigger win. Beating OU proves what we have done so far is no fluke. I hope our guys realize what an opportunity this one is!

    No doubt it would be huge, but personally, very little could top what I felt while standing on that field last Friday night.

    Each and every B12 win is HUGE for ISU.

    How we won't have a hangover I don't know however.

    Your math is off. Beating OU would be great, but they're ranked #11, not #2.

    I didn't do math, but it is on the road.

    It would be a bigger win but not as special i guess

    It would be enormous... since we have not beaten OU in how long? At their house? We would be the talk of college football for a while. I would love to win at least 1 of the next 2.

    Re: COULD NEXT WEEK BE AN.............

    It would mean ISU raised a big middle finger to the conference and took a dump on its image this year.....as payback for all the pain and suffering the program has endured the last 18 months with realignment talk.

    ISU beating the top 2 in the conference would be awesome for us, and bad for national perception of the Big 12....not that i care at all.

    Re: COULD NEXT WEEK BE AN.............

    I've been looking at the computer rankings as they come in and combined with the idea that we should be able to break the top 25 in human polls IF we win, I estimate that we would actually push into the Top 20 in the BCS rankings if we were to win against Oklahoma...

    Theyd both be huge. We've beaten OU once in the last 50 years.

    Re: COULD NEXT WEEK BE AN.............

    If by the grace of God above we can beat Oklahoma, look at CPR being a serious candidate in the BIGXI for coach of the year. If by chance we knock off the Sooners, look for us to hit a better bowl game. Right now they are looking at playing in the bowl games in New York, Houston and Dallas.
    A bowl game is a bowl game but I refuse to watch a game in New York in late December. Knock off either Oklahoma or K-State and the farther south we get!

    It would mean even more to me. It is 2 different things though. I'll explain it this way. The OSU was a win for the history books. A win at OU would be one for the program's future.

    Both are important in different ways. And you couldn't have the implicaitons of the hypothetical OU win without the OSU win. So measuring "most important, most critical and most meaningful" gets very tricky.

    Winning at OSU got the historical monkey off of our back and was very difficult for the team to accomplish. Really unprecidented in our programs history. And it will be something that will go into the historybooks as "one of the greatest wins/upsets in program history." Again historically #1 before or after a hypothetical OU win. A win for history.

    But winning @OU is nearly as big of a shocker if not bigger for a lot of reasons and is a bigger win in my mind because it isn't one win for the history books. It would set the program on a path where everything is different. Its one that would build so much further into the ability of ISU to build the program for the future. We have a 100 less things to tilt the field for an ISU win. Its going to be an OU team that will be focused, ****** off, less blindsided, maybe better coached and at the very least on = footing as far as time to prepare. We're going to be dealing with hangover, OU's going to be dealing with focused and determined and intense practice time.

    Winning @OU would be light years ahead of OSU as far as what it means and especially what it means to changing and building ISU. It would mean OSU wasn't a fluke. It would mean we don't need everything to create an unbelievable advantage to beat an elite team. It would mean that we can beat more than 1 very high quality team in a season. It would strengthen the pattern of big wins on the road. The OU game is all about what ISU is going to do with any type of spotlight going forward for the future of the program. Beating one elite team at home is fantastic for the history of the program, but Beating OU would be all about what we are going to do with the succes and where we could be heading.

    Does it fade into the history books or become part of our future. One time that the crappy sayings actually are right. The most important win now is the next one. Hate the cliché but its true. What is this team going to do with this win.
