    Why is Tech so confident?

    I keep looking at their boards and the majority of them are convinced they are going to roll us. Why? They are mocking us for mocking them about their strength of schedule. Like it or not, it is a weak schedule. You may or may not be a better team than Iowa State, but please don't base it off of beating teams that you have played so far. Texas Tech could very could well beat us, but the confidence from their fans on their scout boards that it will be a blowout is ridiculous.

    PS-

    When you make fun of Ames, please remember that you are located in Lubbock


    How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm once they've seen Carl Hungus?

    Just a reminder, Carl. If we all woke up in the morning and Lubbock was an exclave of Iowa, it'd instantly be your biggest city. Just remember that.

    Re: Why is Tech so confident?

    People who run around message boards, & especially people who are so interested in their team that they will spend time on an opponents message board are probably going to be confident about their team. But that's less than 5% of the fanbase. I bet there is a large % of Tech fans really nervous & not at all full of confidence going into this game.

    Okay? So living in a big city means its better? I guess we should all move to Detroit by that logic

    Let me clarify that MOST of the Tech fans on here have been reasonable and respectable. Whenever I read their Scout boards though, they think they are the Longhorns

    Re: Why is Tech so confident?

    I think the obnoxiousness found on ESPN and Scout boards are due to youthful exuberance, feeding off the positive output of their three wins. The Leach-like swagger still exists deep down and is oozing for venting by some of the braggerts.

    I sense the mature fan on both sides sees this as an unknown toss-up at this point. I'm glad it's at The Jack and looking for the good guys to play well and win it at home.

    Oh man, let's hope that doesn't happen.

    Didn't realize population was all that mattered. Well, in that case, China > USA and India > USA

    They are just running a distant third to Hawks and Nebraska as most obnoxious football fanbase. Kentucky basketball eclipses them all though.
