    I think we cover. 49-3. Maybe I should say 48-3 on account of a missed PAT.

    That's what I thought. What's the most we have ever been favored?

    Probably this. If they had a hard time beating Butler in FB, it could mean for a fun game where we see lots of young players.

    If we win by almost 40 I'd be a little surprised. I don't think CPR has it in him to run up a score. Hopefully we get to see a lot more of the 2's and 3's. Btw how often are the 2's getting in on offense? It seemed like we would rotate guys in on the O-line a lot more last year. The D-line is rotating about 3 deep it seems like though

    Most points Iowa State has ever been favored in a game by a long shot. (Records I have only go back to 1985.) Previous high was 21.5 points against Kansas on 8/31/02. That happened to be Mark Mangino's 1st game at KU as Iowa State rolled 45-3.

    I'm guessing the game with Tennessee Tech in '02 would have been extremely high, but that didn't have a line listed.

    Tennessee Tech?

    No way we cover that. We play down to our competition somewhat on Saturday and still win by 20-25 points.

    I hope for a huge early lead. I would like to see Barnett and Richardson get playing time.

    I've been thinking 42-3, but I didn't expect the oddsmakers to agree.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    While I think we run away with a win here, I think I'm taking WIU here. It's pretty hard to win a game by 40 points when you consider bringing in the second and third teams. The outcome vs. the line is going to depend on soon the coaches take their foot off the gas once they get up by 20+ more than it will depend on how good each team is. In general I'd avoid betting on games with lines over 20 for that basic reason.

    It will be nice to see a good old fashioned beat down though.

    Also Blum - have you been personally maintaining records for betting lines back that far? What were you the kindergarten bookie?

    I think the line is about right. The key difference between "running up" the score and not, assuming you have a classy coach, is depth. We have it.

    The problem is that if CPR does not run it up and cover the spread it immediately effects our rankings, and we'll all have to read how we're nowhere nearly as good as anybody projected, blah, blah, blah. Worst part will be listening to your inbred cousins in Iowa City saying it.
