    Something different...

    After staying up until almost 6 am to watch the game last night I must say that I felt terrible about that loss. Jantz seemed to be playing for the other team at times and the play-calling left me wondering what was going through the coach's heads. Despite the terrible play of the offense this was still a game in which ISU could have come out on top with a couple of favorable bounces of the ball. How do you win a game missing extra points, throwing the ball directly to the opponents and simply dropping the ball for no reason in a key situation? Also, I like the fact that I'm frustrated with a 3-1 start. Since when have I been unhappy with a 3-1 start in football? CPR has raised the bar for sure... this has to be a good thing. I think that it is a near impossibility for the O to play this badly again. I like our chances this season for making a bowl game.

    God, I wish I didn't completely disagree with both of these statements.

    I actually do agree with these statements, we weren't gonna go undefeated... This game should be humbling and can be something that we learn from.... No doubt in my mind are we a better team than that, and a better offense... I think we'll refocus and be ready to take on tcu...

    If we beat TCU, we're right back to a good place again. If we lose that, we're going to be in a tough spot for a bowl game with the remainder of the B12 schedule.

    It's as much of a "must win" as you can have at 3-1.

    I predicted at the beginning of the season we would beat Tech and lose to TCU. It's safe to say I wouldn't be upset if we reversed that.
