    Tulsa looks good!

    That win against Tulsa looks better after the past 2 weeks:

    Tulsa is 2-0 after playing us. Their star running back we held to 55 yards broke for 254 over the past 2 games. Also, we held Tulsa to 23.. the last 2 games they've put up over 111 points.

    Even offensively there's a bright light: We put up 38 points against them. The last 2 weeks they've only allowed 26.

    GO STATE!!

    Re: Tulsa looks good!

    Tulsa is the best team we've played so far this year. Holding them under 20 points is more impressive than holding EIU under 10.

    What point are you trying to make about Tulsa looking good? Are you trying to validate our win over them? They beat a team that went 2-10 last year by 35, and a team that went 1-10 last year at the FCS level by 50. I would hope they look good against those teams.

    I can't stand and don't understand why some people check in on a weekly basis to see how our previous opponents are doing to validate our wins. We beat Tulsa. That's all that matters. Why does it need to be validated? Guess we better cheer for the Hawkeyes to win every game for the remainder of the season. The win must be validated.

    Just a heads up, be prepared to be disappointed when it comes to validating the Western Illinois win.

    ISU is 3-0, and I had the privilege of photographing the game last night. Life is good.

    The better the teams we beat look, the better we look to poll voters. I we get ranked we get more national media attention which helps recruiting and ensures future success.

    You're absolutely accurate with this statement. What I'm trying to say is, what good does it do for us when Tulsa looks good against two teams that went a combined 3-20 last year? Should they look good against those teams? I would hope so.

    Let me know when Tulsa beats a ranked team. Then things look good.

    That only matters if we overcome perceptions by winning conference games and finishing strong. It doesn't matter what happens in the first 3 games if you're not "rankable" after the first third of the conference schedule.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.
