    Looks about evenly split, similar to Fanatic prediction thread.

    The parallel is, each fanbase thinks it's a key swing game for the direction of the season, not overly confident and could see it going either way.

    These are the types of games ISU needs to start winning more frequently. If we pull off a stunner at some point, fantastic. Meanwhile, find a way to beat bad teams anywhere, and flawed teams when it's possible.

    They need it even more than we do. Losing at home to ISU won't go over well.

    Nobody at A&M will notice. I'd bet less than 5,000 in attendance. They had less than 8,000 last season and that was with students in session. They don't care about basketball even when ranked last season.

    I didn't know they even followed basketball.

    What do you expect? A team from a football conference playing a team from a basketball conference.

    To be fair probably half of their fans will be in Starkville tomorrow mistakingly thinking that their SEC conference game is there.

    Ever notice how much other team's forum sites suck?! C-Dub, you do a fine job.

    They also got handled by Rice at home it looks like. I guess that is probably their equivalent to us losing to Drake/UNI though...

    I don't know if the ones that are picking us by 10-15 have done their homework. I think this be a much closer game.

    We can win if we don't stink up the joint shooting the deep ball like the Michigan game. We would have won that one if we could make a freaking shot - wide open looks too.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    We get to punk the Aggie Nation twice in 1 week; once with a win at their house on Saturday and twice with Rick Perry's showing at the Iowa caucuses. Boom!

    They must have meant that we will have a 10-15 point lead at some point.

    Could even be more than once only to lose it each time.

    FYI, A&M is a 4 point favorite in Vegas.
