    Texas is a winnable game.

    Texas is very mediocre this year and has had some close games with some crappy teams. I'm not saying ISU has been lighting the world on fire, but we have the talent to win this game. I hope Fred has chewed some *** in practice this week and got these guy's head on right. If Iowa can beat the #11 team in the nation on the road, then we can beat Texas at home. I hope the fans show up and still show they are supporting this team. This first Big 12 win could spark something in this team and it could turn out to be a fun year in the Big 12. Just one big win can do ALOT of things for a team. Now lets go kick some Longhorn *** on Wednesday!

    UT-68

    Texas is mediocre, but ISU is worse than mediocre. I just hope Royce is healed from the flu and that our guys don't get embarrassed. It would be nice to get the conference season started off with a win.

    Like I said, I just hope we are having a good week of practice. Starting 1-0 in Big 12 for this team could do wonders.

    Re: Texas is a winnable game.

    I'd love to see a W here, but I think we lose by 10+. Many saw a ****** off Fred in the post game conference, I guess I more saw a confused looking coach who cannot figure out his team. I don't think he quite knows what buttons to push. I hope he figures it out sooner than later.

    It's as ****** as I've seen Fred. Hopefully that motivated him to do something different in practice.

    Re: Texas is a winnable game.

    I expect to start 0-1. I do think we'll look much better though.

    I feel like we play to the level of our competition, so I think we will play much better also.

    That's just what happens to coaches when they have a team like this that has so much disinterest. It's baffled experienced and inexperienced coaches alike.

    I think that we can beat Texas. It's a battle of two maddingly inconsistent teams. The problem is the mental aspect for our guys. If they bring what they have been bringing, a 10 point loss would be a lot closer than I would expect.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Every game is winnable if we play like we should.

    Re: Texas is a winnable game.

    We are capable of beating anyone in the conference with our talent and we also have the ability to lose to anyone.

    As fans, we can help them by cheering loud and creating a home court enviroment. This team seems to play better against tougher competition and when the crowd is loud. I wish the team could motivate themselves for every game but it does not appear this is going to happen.

    No student section may make it a little tougher.

    I thought the same thing..it seemed like Fred said "I just don't know" several times in the presser. Hope I am wrong.

    I feel like we can compete with anyone in the big 12, and also lose to anyone in the big 12.

    Going to my first basketball game in 5 years on Wednesday, praying for no blowout but would be stunned with a win.
