    Can Iowa really be a Cyclone State?

    DMac won 5 straight against the Hawks but lost in Conference and lost badly in many games that mattered.

    Rhoads has won 2 of 3 and has more interest in the program than anytime since perhaps 1982, but more importantly has several bigger wins than either Iowa victory.

    Its not about beating Iowa. Sure it helps with the t shirt fans but Iowa State student attendance is at an all time high and will graduate more and more lifetime fans. Playing in a superior conference is a huge advantage. No one cares about the Big 10 except Big 10 fans.

    The key is to compete like KState does in conference, they have proven it can happen. Snyder can't coach forever. Iowa State can take their place. Keep Rhoads, win more in conference and I really think we can become the Cyclone State. Iowa fans will say it can never happen. Never is a long time, I think Rhoads can get it done within 5 years

    Agreed. Keep winning against Iowa, get to .500+ in conference, be ranked, and go bowling. It'll start to turn in 5-10 years of success like that.

    Re: Can Iowa really be a Cyclone State?

    Iowa State University IS the destination college for the majority of Iowans so in a sense it truly is Iowa's college. If we can continue to win the majority of games against Iowa in the major sports, it is bound to happen. It just takes time to erase years of futility, but we are starting to see a little glimmer of light at the end of that tunnel. Let's hope the infusion of money from the Big 12 contracts can keep the momentum going!

    Re: Can Iowa really be a Cyclone State?

    I'd love the score to be more than 9-6 yesterday as we should have at least 2 more TDs. By beating Iowa really bad, like Hayden Fry used to do we can show how bad they are and no one will dare to be their fans.
    Fry used to enjoy running up the score: he did it to build the fan base as well as destroying our potential fan base: hoping that a lot of the neutrals will be afraid of being affiliated with "losers". I would love to see our team beat them really bad consistently to the points that the little kids will get ridiculed for being iowa fans and they'll switch their allegiance to Iowa State because they want to be "the Winners". Yes, this looks harsh but this is the way to do it.

    Of course, keep on winning, going to the bowl, beating top 25 teams also are important.

    OP: Rhoads is 2 of 4. Sorry- just want to be accurate. And yes; this IS a Cyclone State. Time for herky to be little brother.

    Hell even 20% of Chizicks victories came against that Hawks! How much does KF make again?

    This! Well said. Gotta beat the crap out of them consistently like they used to to us. Missed a good opportunity yesterday to do that, we were much, much, much better and could have really throttled them in Kinnick. O well, gotta love the win, but I'm not as overjoyed as I thought I would be.

    Re: Can Iowa really be a Cyclone State?

    As much as Purple Kansas and Snyder bug me, this is the model that we need to hope for as Cyclone fans..Its been said it's impossible to win here, and I'm sure it's been said about Manhattan, KS as well..Snyder is a legend, and I hope for us to continue to take that turn out of mediocrity. For the first time as a fan I feel like we aren't just beating teams we shouldn't, but instead that we are a big league football team with legitimate talent and team speed (and the first time we really had a much better team than Iowa)..I love where this program is headed, God bless America and God Bless the Cyclones!

    This is true...while winning close games is great, we really need to **** pound them a few years to make independents "embarrassed" to be Hawks as you said. That is exactly what Fry did.

    Re: Can Iowa really be a Cyclone State?

    These are facts, not opinions:

    ISU is ALWAYS the #1 college choice for Iowa high school seniors. The majority of Iowa's entering class are nonresidents each year.

    While Iowa's total enrollment is a few hundred more than ISUs, ISU has more fulltime and more undergraduate studentts.

    ISU plays in a higher ranked conference.

    ISU's TV revenue is now on par with Iowa's.

    There are other things I could add to the list, but you get the point. As today's article in the Omaha World Herald states, there has been a shift in the balance of power.
