    Mentions in Forde-Yard Dash

    Forde-Yard Dash: A breathless sprint to start the 2012 college football season - Yahoo! Sports

    Because you never know when a national championship race months in the shaping is going to veer off the rails in an unlikely place. See: Iowa State-Oklahoma State (1), 2011.
    Oklahoma at Iowa State (32), Nov. 3. Paul Rhoads, on the other hand, has a big moment everyyear. In three seasons at Iowa State, Rhoads has shocked Nebraska as a 20-point underdog, shocked Texas as a 20˝-point underdog, and shocked Oklahoma State as a 27˝-point underdog. Sooners, you have been warned.
    Seems like we are getting more and more national attention (even if its a small amount) compared to previous years. Hope we continue the momentum this year.

    The rest of the column is a good read for any college football fan.

    Re: Mentions in Forde-Yard Dash

    When did Forde move to Yahoo?

    Edit: Bader beat me to it

    Definitely will be checking out Yahoo more. Their press coverage has been way more in-depth than ESPN and they aren't afraid to dig for a story (Nevin Shapiro-Miami scandal).

    I'm under the suspicion that Yahoo and ESPN are in cahoots, ESPN providing all of Yahoo's sports content in a further attempt to rule the world of sports (more than they already do anyway...)

    Re: Mentions in Forde-Yard Dash

    I thought that we were much better against OU last year than in 2011. We didn't play great, but our D was a lot better in that game than previously. I would love nothing better than to beat OU and Little Purple Kansas Kitty this year. However, it seems that OU has had our number "forever," and former Hawkeye Stoops seems to make sure his team does NOT overlook ISU. Here's hoping that Forde's inclination on a possible upset comes to fruition!

    2010 ISU-OU wasn't even a game, or at least it wasn't after the first quarter. Last year was actually competitive to a certain point. If the offense could have gotten ANYTHING going that day, Iowa State could have pulled off the upset.

    Re: Mentions in Forde-Yard Dash

    Although I would love to beat OU this year, it would be much sweeter, in my opinion, to have it happen next year in Norman. I would love to see the look on all of the OU idiots faces if we were to shock them in their own house.

    I'd be very happy with win over WVU this year and the win over OU next year.

    Rubbing it right in the Land Thieves faces would be awesome, but I would prefer to have the upset come at home in front of a packed house of ISU fans. Really cement the home field advantage of JTS. Make teams scares as crap to come up North.

    I'd love to beat WVU the Friday after Thanksgiving on national TV...even more than I'd like to beat OU.

    OOPS - thanks for catching that mistake. I did honestly mean to say 2011. Yeah, 2010 was the slaughter. While watching that game, I believed that OU could have beaten ANY team in the nation on that night. That WR (Broyles?), was catching everything - even during the times that LJ had excellent coverage of him.
