    You guys CAN beat Kansas

    Hi everyone.

    Yes, I hate Kansas. And yes, I'm a Mizzou fan.

    But I honestly believe the Cyclones have a decent chance of upsetting the beakers on Saturday.

    I was at the Mizzou-ISU game and say your team first hand, and I must say the Cyclones scared the bejesus out of me and about 50,000 other fans. I know I'm stating the obvious, but your team is much better than your record indicates. You are well poised for an upset at Lawrence.

    In KU's games against aTm and Colorado, they mustered just 38 total points and won by a total of just 13 points -- hardly dominating. Last week's win at Okie-State is their best win of the season. And Unlike ISU, Kansas has not been battle tested with tough games against Texas and Oklahama. You guys have been tested all year. Since losing to Texas your guys have really played hard and made every game a contest.

    Mangino is probably a good enough coach to keep his players focused. Still, I think ISU has more than a decent shot of leaving Lawrence with a win. They have a lot to lose (a loss would knock them out of NC talk) while ISU has everything to gain -- namely pride. I hope your coaching staff opens things up and goes for broke.

    As a Mizzou fan, I obviously don't like KU. Even if they lose to ISU (and Mizzou wins at K-State) we must still beat them in KC for the Big 12 North title. However, even if Mizzou were to beat an 11-0 KU team and then lost to OU in the Big 12CG, the buzz is KU would probably earn a loftier BCS bowl since they would have one loss and Mizzou would have two. So, ISU upsetting Kansas would be very welcome!

    Here's hoping the Cyclones pull off the upset! Good luck!

    Rep to you for being cool. I hope our team will bite these guys hard and as you say "go for broke" Excellent first post. I wish my missouri-fan brother-in-law was as cool as you. =)

    I drove back to StL from KC late Saturday night and once I got to the east side of Columbia I saw the following license plate: "DBEAKM." It took me a couple of seconds to get it but I was laughing about it for the rest of the trip once I did.

    jeepdad - do you know Roger Sprague, aka, Mr. Tuff Tiger? If so, do you know where we can find him?

    Do you know anyone named Roger Sprague? He might go by Tuff Tiger, any idea who that is?

    Thanks for the post by the way!

    Re: You guys CAN beat Kansas

    I really am looking forward to the game. I have to think Kansas is looking towards the Mizzou game and can only hope we pull a few surprises on them. We match up with them fairly well and we have nothing to lose by leaving it all on the field. It's our Super Bowl!


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Given the logic, consideration and general structure of his post - I seriously doubt that Jeepdad and Roger travel in the same circles.

    I do, however, believe that Roger often travels - "in circles".

    LOL, yes I've heard of Mr. Tuff Tiger but I honestly don't know who he is or where to find him. I first encountered him over at huskerboard, and he had everyone there in stitches (at the time, Husker fans still had a good sense of humor). His "rabbit with the pancake hat" icon was priceless. I didn't realize he had made an appearance here. Maybe this discussion will draw him back!

    Re: You guys CAN beat Kansas

    Is he on any of your Mizzu boards?

    He's on the K-State boards this week and it looks like they apprecaite him...

    Scout.com: Kansas State Forums List

    This is Tiger MU week as you"ll know for KSU. I was on you"re site a couple weeks ago whitch was my fault I got mixed up on the game list"s. But now it"S time.

    Plus also.

    I will us Cornel Sangders from KFC as my simple for this week only.

    I think this will be a good game on Saturday, an it"s on at 11:30 in the morninf soI will enjoy it.

    I need to say, thouhg, that the Tough As Rain tigers will be trouble for defnse .

    I finally get an enjoy from the Tigers after many years of carp.

    Good luck.

    Tuff Tiger
    Columbia,MU.

    Also, I found an KU board an will visit them at them same time. Sinces both are in Kansas, may the same internets.

    Tuff Tiger
    Posted this morning just after 6:30...he's alive!

    What"s you"re good guess for the scoring?

    I can make a poll for you"re board is you need me to. I"m good at that an have some time to.

    I think my best Tigers are running a tough scoring offense at this time of this aseeson.

    Toughest Tigers get to be: Chase (allof them even PAtton, but he just get"s a lot of watching with a pencil), Rucker, an all jetfast WR"S. Best of pack(LikeTiger pack) is Jerry McLins. You can see a 9 on his shirt if you squent you"re eyes as you can see he runs slippry fast.

    Defsense only gets a so-so rating from TT (nicknames for me as TuffTuger to save room and time on internest).

    I don"t care about any kicker"s so it"s jsut best for me not to make comments on.

    Okay, an now you"re turn to tell you"re best story of KSU Wilcats. Are you"re best KSU fans yelling at you"re new Prince after the Tough as Corn GBR ran up some point"s?

    Now the simple of the Week: Extra crisy or Original?

    Colubmia,MU

    Re: You guys CAN beat Kansas

    You guys are obsessed with Sprague. You do know he's just messing with everyone, right? He's randomly funny, but I'm just saying.. :)

    Anyway, good post jeepdad. I feel like we have a legitimate chance for the big upset, but I still take Kansas by 14.
