    ISU against the world

    From what I can tell, everyone is on the Tech train for this game on saturday except Clone fans. What am I missing here? Is all this really just based on the Iowa game? I think they are in for a rude awakening Saturday. I hope we break them in the 2nd half!

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    I think a lot of people still think we're the Iowa State of old. Just gotta win to make them believe otherwise.

    They're from Texas. I think that explains it

    Re: ISU against the world

    ISU's offense did well against Tulsa, but has underwhelmed in the last two games against weak opponents. It makes people hesitant to jump on the bandwagon, because it is perceived that high scoring is needed to win in the Big 12.

    Re: ISU against the world

    We've both not played any great competition, Tulsa is turning out to be decent for what they are, but not stellar. We had a good 3 quarters against Tulsa, pretty much complete crap against Iowa, and I'd say above average against WIU. But Texas Tech has put up really impressive numbers on both sides of the ball through their first three weak opponents. Given that the spread is only 3 in their favor I think that seems to be a pretty fair assessment.

    Iowa State is being picked to win more often than TTU on the WVU Big 12 conference forum. FWIW.

    Re: ISU against the world

    Perception-

    Texas Tech= 7,000 passing yards per game
    85.4 points per game
    From Texas-Must be great.

    Iowa State= Perennial Doormat
    3-5 wins per year
    Used to have Seneca Wallace
    Where is Ames, Idaho???

    And that concludes our expert research for Saturday's "Big 12 teams we don't care about" game

    Yeah, even the ESPN boards, WVU fans seem to be pretty split, possibly be in our favor. Everyone else thinks 1-3td win for Tech.

    It's nothing new, but it's getting old since we have legitimate wins and accomplishments to point to and say we're a better team than the Cyclones of old.
