    How confident are you ISU can win this wknd?

    Hopefully this team is all kinds of pumped from the loss last week.

    Watching the highlights from last week...it was actually pretty close the first half. Surely the D was tired the second half. With Baylor's D being weaker than OSU I would anticipate more time on the field for the offense this week. On a scale of one to ten(most confident), I would say I am 7 that we get the W. ISU gets payback for last year and that RG guy.

    I am very confident we will win.
    I am actually more nervous for the Kansas game than this one.

    Depends on who is QB. Richardson or Barnett (in order of preference) and I say we have 8/10 shot. Steele - we have 50/50 chance.

    Re: How confident are you ISU can win this wknd?

    I am extremely confident that we can win, like I am for almost every game. Whether or not we do win depends on us playing up to our potetial.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: How confident are you ISU can win this wknd?

    I'd say it's a toss up, our terrible offense vs. their god awful defense. Their very good offense vs. our typically stout defense.

    I probably have more confidence for this one than KU, too, if nothing else, a nudge for home game vs. road game.

    How many confidence points I'd attach to that comparison, I'm not sure.

    If Iowa State loses this one, I'd probably consider it the least-forgivable loss of the past two seasons. And I suppose we'd also follow it with a shocking win over Oklahoma. It'd be soooo Rhoads-esque.

    In a best-of-seven series experiment, ISU beats BU 4-1.

    My main hesitation for anything less than extreme confidence: Which is a better advantage: Productive offense/minimal defense or struggling offense/high-caliber defense?

    Exactly what I'm thinking. This team can win against anyone, but things have to come together.

    Re: How confident are you ISU can win this wknd?

    ISU's offense is in a funk. Am I confident they can get out of it, yes. CPR got this team to rebound last year after 4 ugly loses in a row. ISU's offense has put up 37 points twice this year on 2 defenses that are at least twice as better as Baylor's. so we know it can be done.

    Re: How confident are you ISU can win this wknd?

    If the defense can rally after the injury that nobody on this site will let anybody talk about, then I believe the good guys can win. Gonna be a crappy weekend either way though, alot of hand wringing on this site will happen after the game, win or lose.

    Re: How confident are you ISU can win this wknd?

    60/40 that we win after watching Baylor v Texas last sat nite.


    Our O-Line just absolutely has to BLOCK better than last sat or this season will be Toast as they say.


    Cyclones by 6...........thats my prediction.....Go Cyclones.

    Where is your proof? Taking a rumor and running with it until I hear different.
