    Opening line: Oklahoma @ ISU 28.5

    I thought it might be higher.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Vegas is getting gun-shy after 41 point dogs win out-right. This line will go up as the week goes on, but not too much higher. In any case, the Sooners will cover.

    Re: Opening line: Oklahoma @ ISU 28.5

    For an in-conference game, that's pretty darn high. I guess it's about what I expected but that's a huge spread for a conference game.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    It hurts me to say it, but take the Sooners.
    I'm sorry, I love the Cyclones, and they are showing some improvement, but they are going to lose, and lose bad against Oklahoma. I still believe in the future, but this year is horrible.

    We were showing improvement. We took a step backwards against Texas Tech and we took a couple leaps backwards against Texas.

    Unfortunately you're probably dead on. This one looks to get real ugly (as if yesterday wasn't bad enough).

    OU: 45
    ISU: 10

    I had a hard time staying as long as I did yesterday. There was not anyone within 20 feet of me when I left with 9 minutes to go in the game. I hope next week is better, but I am not holding my breath.

    Re: Opening line: Oklahoma @ ISU 28.5

    I just don't see us covering. Say what you want...but we really haven't shown anything with exception to one game that leads me to believe we can hang within 4 touchdowns and a half a point with OU.

    If someone has seen something I'm missing, please feel free to point it out to me.

    As much as I hate to agree, I have to here. Offensively I have seen nothing that would convince me that the clones can score more than 10 points against anyone left on the schedule.

    OU loves to run up scores.

    OU will also help my bank account:)

    Re: Opening line: Oklahoma @ ISU 28.5

    I see 28.5 being very kind in our favor. Unfortunately, based on what I saw on Saturday out of our senior leadership (it looks as if the season's already over for them and for the most part it's not worth trying anymore), and Stoops' penchant for leaving Jack Trice and ISU in the same kind of condition that the Spartans left the Persians and Thermopylae (well, the first several days at least), I see OU winning by a lot more than 28.5.

    Re: Opening line: Oklahoma @ ISU 28.5

    Considering we cannot score more than 17 points (minus the Toledo game which fields a high school defense), our defense (along with Bret Meyer's weekly pick 6) will have to hold OU to under 46 points to cover. And that is assuming we score 17. Sorry but I just don't see it happening.
