    Remaining Games

    I think our remaining (6) games are all winnable however...
    The game in Ames against Oklahoma and the following weeks game at Texas may be the only two games I'm not to confident about. Oklahoma hosts Notre Dame on the 27th, and then us the week after. And Texas has Texas Tech on the 3rd before playing us. It'll be interesting to see how those teams respond to us after the next few weeks.

    Re: Remaining Games

    IF our offense shows up, then we can beat or at least hang with every team on our schedule. if the offense keeps playing like crap then we will struggle to make a bowl game


    This is Ophion speaking.

    Re: Remaining Games

    I think we beat everyone other than OU if we don't turn it over. Every other defense is horrible and we will put more than 30 on the board. Plus I don't see this team giving up more than 30 to anyone except maybe WV or OU.

    Re: Remaining Games

    I certainly think we have a better shot at winning half the remaining games after watching Baylor and WV play.

    Re: Remaining Games

    Right now I would say OU is a guaranteed loss, but I don't see what's scary about UT at all. Yes, they put up some points against WVU (who hasn't), but against any defense with a pulse they've not been impressive. And clearly their defense isn't nearly as good as last year.

    I think we win the next 2, lose to OU, beat UT and KU, then lose a close one to WVU. It's hard to predict this far out for some games since there's always injuries to take into account. Also, that's assuming that our offense doesn't continue to suck eggs, which is also very possible.

    KSU **** pounded OU. We've got no reason to fear them. Probably one our better chances to beat them.

    Re: Remaining Games

    Which ISU team shows up? The one that torches TCU or the one that loses to KSU and TTech? Other than Kansas, no one left on the schedule has a bad offense, and even Kansas can put a scare into you if you're not careful. Ask OK State. I think we will win 4 of the remaining games, but we're capable of winning out or losing out.

    Best chance to beat OU since 2007 when Chizik lost to them because he didn't have a freaking fullback who could get tough yards in short yardage situations.

    I just hope we can get up for Okie Lite next week. Emotion on the road in Stillwater might be a problem.

    Re: Remaining Games

    OU is the only one that really worries me, and mainly because of what they did to UT yesterday. None of them will be easy wins, but every game is 'winnable'.

    Are there some good offenses in our league? Sure. But some of those 'good offenses' have proven to be paper tigers in the face of a good defense. And those teams also have a tendency to not have a whole lot of defense either.

    Re: Remaining Games

    If we cant run, these wins will be tougher to come by. If we cant line up and push the ball down their throat, we need to be sneakier, not sure that will happen either. If we cant run against KU, ummm, nevermind. Come on OL and Mess, get it figured out!

    The next game is the one that worries me. We are not good enough to say any game, even ku, is a guaranteed win. But we are good enough to beat anyone on the schedule. One game at a time..
