    ISU by 3.5 at TT

    I'm thinking of going all in - which to date has not been a good omen for me. We handled them easily in Hilton. Can we do it again? I'm not aware of any big psych issues, maybe - Texas Tech will raise its 800 Win Banner at halftime - not so much.

    Re: ISU by 3.5 at TT

    I think the motivation for TT is game on ESPN2, pink game, previous loss to us and playing for post season should be enough. They have to play all of the top teams yet so they need all of the wins they can get.

    I don't want a close game as on the road the home team has managed to win somehow this year. Hopefully the team continues their winning streak as it has to help our recruiting when we are able to get wins in Texas.

    This is definitely a big game for both teams. This isn't a must win, but a win would make the ncaa road a lot easier. It'd also finally get us to .500 in conference.

    Plus, with a win, we'd move into a tie for 5th place with the loser of Kansas-Kansas State today. They're both 6-5, while we are 5-6. Every win matters at this point. So does every loss. If we don't win, we're in a three-way tie for 6th with Oklahoma State and Tech at 5-7, splitting the season series with the Raiders and having a game yet to come at Stillwater. OSU is 1/2 game behind us now because of their 16 point loss at Texas yesterday.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    The under would have been great - ISU to win, not so much. But, that's what I did so I feel somewhat responsible.
