    TCU

    This game looks winnable to me. Tough, but winnable. Their offense hasn't been setting the world on fire. Need to find a way to put three touchdowns or more on the board, and if we do, I think we're back on track.

    Re: TCU

    I don't think TCU will score much, mayb 20-24 points. But again, this is a Big 12 game, to win you have to score 30 points at least. I am extremely worried abou their defensive speed. Unless there is a total turnaround they are going to manhandle our offensive line and press our wide receivers into submisson and Jantz or whoever the QB is will be running for their lives again. The book is out on ISU now. Defensive front 4 can control the line, press coverage....and they have no answer to it. Lot of things need to be ironed out in a few days.

    Re: TCU

    I feel better about going to TCU than I did before Tech. Not sure why though...

    Re: TCU

    TCU will have 8-9 guys in the box. Tech has improved on defense, but TCU is light years ahead of Tech on defense. I hope for some offense but I am not holding out much hope. I see a 24-10 loss.

    We are going to learn a lot about mess next week. Will he make adjustments or do we do the same thing we did last night.

    Re: TCU

    TCU defense is good and they are going to probably stack the box all day on us. Their defense is probably even better than Tech's. We will probably hold their offense to 17 or so, but I'm not very confident about putting points on the board.

    You guys will definitely put up more than 6 pts of O against tcu. Good luck next week I think you should be able to take them.

    To get to 10, you must assume a defensive TD, a safety and we go for two and actually make it?

    Re: TCU

    I think we need to do it any way that we can, if that means plays on defense or special teams that give the offense a short field. Obviously the offense has to be at least good, but doesn't have to be spectacular.

    Why do you say definitely? Our offense has yet to put up more that 9 against BCS schools. I know it has only been 2 games but still. Also, I saw where TCU is #2 in the nation for points against.

    Re: TCU

    I've watched TCU a couple games and they are definitely beatable. Tech is a better team from what I've seen.

    Gotta find a way to get 21-24 points and we have a real shot in this one I think.

    Easier said than done though.

    This. However, I think we will learn A LOT about ISU next week, not just Mess. TCU is probably the most overrated team in the Top 25. This game could not come at a better time where ISU needs to gain some confidence.

    Our offense makes any defense look great.

    Re: TCU

    Our defense has played good not great and we have turned the ball over quite a bit. This is a hard working young team who hasn't learned to play consistent. I look for a low scoring game but I think the Frogs will win this.
