    What we should have learned from KSU - OU

    First: Snyder is a witch.

    Second: OU has absolutely pasted KSU recently. Last year it was like 58-17 on KSU's field. It was a mismatch. This year with much the same players and on OU's field, KSU won. Keep this in mind when thinking about the "ease" of the TTech game this weekend. Alot of parallels IMO. We will need to absolutely bring it.

    I learned that Bob Stoops is overrated. Never mind, I/we already knew that.

    Re: What we should have learned from KSU - OU

    The better playmakers were on the KSU team
    Landry is not that good of QB when he has to rely on unplanned movement (see Weedon last year in our big win)
    It was a test of wills, & KSU won (and the turnovers really helped that).


    Section110 on 9/12/14: Iowa 35 ISU 17
    The subpar defense from the Cyclones gives the Hawks a chance to finally start to get their confidence rolling on offense. Both running the football and through the air.
    *Breakout player prediction.... Everyone is going to have their eyes on Allen Lazard because of his hype coming out of H.S., but Derrick Willies steals the show.

    The idiots that you're addressing with this post will never change their minds until TTU forcibly does it for them. I'm just glad those people aren't playing for our football team. CPR and the boys will not underestimate TTU.

    Re: What we should have learned from KSU - OU

    I learned three things

    1 - KSU looks good

    2 - When Oklahoma makes a stupid play (the fumble for a touchdown) reminiscent of an Iowa State play, I laugh.

    3 - The refs tried to hand it to OU (the pass/fumble followed by a long gain where the receiver stepped out of bounds)


    Asteroids are nature's way of asking "How's that space program going?"

    Landry Jones is awful. He has digressed so much in two years. I cant wait for them to come to Ames, I think we beat them this year.

    I hope you are right. My gut just will not allow me to have a good feeling about this game.

    Yup. If the Cyclones could ever play like the Wildcats they could be dangerous in the Big 12. Still a ways to go to get there though.

    If OU played flaw free football, they walk away with that game. ISU has a lot of work to do to play flaw free.

    I think you mean "regressed?"

    Re: What we should have learned from KSU - OU

    I took away something a little different. In the BIGXII you cannot have a sloppy offensive effort or you will get beaten. OU put out a pretty good Defensive effort, however that only keeps you in a game, the Offense has to win it by scoring points. Also QB play is CRITICAL in games, this game was a micro-chasm of what wins and what loses games in College football. This should worry all teams that have so-so QB play and I believe we fall into that category.

    I watched something about it last night on ESPN where they analyzed this play. If you look at it in slow-mo it does look like he has control and does toss it forward(or a forward pass). The ref they had on thought the refs made a good call. Or was this another play?


    I thought KSU was good enough to play with OU and I was not surprised with their win. If someone plays KSU at their game they will be very tough to beat. OU was able to play their game the last few years and which KSU was not able to keep up with.
