    Fresno State > ISU?

    I found this little gem and laughed after the second sentence. BTW Fresno has played Weber State, Colorado, and Oregon and are 2-1 overall.

    Re: Fresno State > ISU?

    I like how he brags up their 17 pt. loss to the Clucks, even after Oregon turned the ball over 3 times! I guess it was one of those "moral victories"!

    It will be interesting though, to see how Tulsa's season plays out. They've got some talent, and they're successes could make us look better!


    If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right!!

    Re: Fresno State > ISU?

    Who isn't better then ISU?

    Mark Farley says Iowa is better then ISU. Texas Tech fans tell us they are better then ISU, and John Hoover says Fresno is better then ISU. If you pressed John, I'm guessing he would claim that Tulsa is better then ISU despite the fact they lost to ISU. Vegas thinks everyone except WIU is better then ISU.

    Underestimating ISU seems to be in vogue.

    Thankfully we get to play the games. We may be the luckiest team ever. How else can you explain the fact that we keep beating teams that are "better" then us?

    Hey, if we're talking about thee Fresno State then no, the Iowa State Clowns are not even close to the same level.

    Re: Fresno State > ISU?

    Yeah, he makes it out like Fresno played well against Oregon. Actually, yardage was 393-181 in favor of Oregon at the half, and Fresno scored 19 points on 4 of their last 5 possessions to make the score somewhat respectable.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Fresno has more speed on offense than us, but I REALLY doubt they're a better team.

    Re: Fresno State > ISU?

    I for one am glad that most underestimate ISU! ISU always seem to play their best when the underdog. If you look back at most of the games that they look bad in those are the ones that they should or are pick to win easliy.

    Re: Fresno State > ISU?

    I'll be the first to say that Iowa State needs to actually do more to earn more respect, but Fresno State? Please. We won more games and just as many conference games as them last year, and they play in the Mountain West. Congratulations on your crushing defeat over FCS Colorado.

    Just last year they in the WAC as well.


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd
