    If the weatherman is correct...

    ...and we get lots of rain at game time, I wonder which team will benefit most. Right now, I'm feeling like the rain could hurt us more, so I guess I'm hoping for good weather.

    ... buy a poncho. Because it's a soaking rain before, during and after the game.

    Last year's KSU vs ISU weather: Rained. A lot. All game.

    Close game. I'd rather play in crap weather at home than on the road.

    I usually think adverse weather evens the playing field for the underdog.

    I don't know, but just for the QBs, Klein is quite a bit bigger. He's 6'5. Maybe he has an easier time holding onto the ball in those conditions.

    I think with our RB's, and Barnett who knows better when to run himself that rain wouldn't hurt us very much.

    Could already make fumble prone Barnett susceptible to losing the ball.

    Really hope it doesn't rain. Will make the game miserable. Unless of course we are winning.

    Accuweather this am is showing just a chance of a storm and low 70's. Doesn't look like an all day event.

    If rain will keep attendance down -- which will be a battle between two top 25 teams and a chance for ISU to get one step closer to bowl eligibility and respectability -- then NO ONE should be making fun of the TCU fan attendance.

    Re: If the weatherman is correct...

    I think it hurts us more. K-State doesn't fumble and doesn't commit penalties. We do both. Plus it would lessen attendance and our home field advantage.
