". . . the Cyclones are holding opponents (in regulation) to less than 17 points in the last four games. That is very impressive having played offenses such as Texas Tech, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State."
Barnett was at least under control last week, but not very impressive. I think KSU will mimic OU's defensive game plan. Does it make sense to use Jantz for a few plays? How many false starts do KO and Hicks have this year? Aren't they supposed to be our two best OL? How many times has Darks dropped more passes than he caught? Last week no catches, at least one drop.
I think KSU and Iowa are similar - conservative ball control offense and solid defense. We need to get good field position from takeaways or special teams and eliminate turnovers and penalties on offense.
A loss would have K-State awaiting its non-BCS bowl fate Sunday night, likely heading to the Cotton Bowl or Alamo Bowl.
K-State hasn't been to the Cotton Bowl since the 2000 season and the Alamo since 1998, but they are viewed as consolation prizes. Earning an at-large berth into a BCS bowl, which K-State would be eligible for at 10-2, is the grand prize.
Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.
