    Do any you go into a game that you feel like we can't win?

    I know I don't. Rhoads has instilled this sense of winning into me. I know we've had some let downs this year where we could of turned the cover with big wins over Tech or K-state, but in the past I used to see Texas, Oklahoma or any ranked team or a road game on the schedule and used to hope that we didn't lose by 3+ TD's. I think we can win any game, I really do including this saturday. Lets go STATE!

    No except OU. They own our ***. Until we beat them I won't get past that.

    No. If I think we can't win, I burn my tickets.

    Nope, and that is the biggest difference under CPR. Even when we were decent under McCarney, I always knew we had no chance against the big boys. Now, I don't necessarily expect to win every game, but I know that wouldn't take a miracle.

    Imagine if we still had the Big 12 North of the early 2000's with this team and coach. We would be in the Big 12 Championship nearly every year.

    Ditto. When I saw the subject of this thread, I was going to reply with the same, word for word.

    Before I left work today a co-worker asked me what I thought about this weekend's game. I said that, if I had to put money on it, I'd predict a good game but a 10-14 point loss. But I also said a win wouldn't surprise me a bit, which is why Coach Rhoads and his teams pack the stands.

    Re: Do any you go into a game that you feel like we can't win?

    Honest answer: No. I don't even just expect a close game. I expect that we'll win. What happens after that is out of my hands, but I go in thinking that we'll get the job done.

    Re: Do any you go into a game that you feel like we can't win?

    I've never gone into a game thinking we can't win. Instead, I used to go into games wondering how we were going to **** it away. And now, since CPR came along, I don't feel that way so much. Actually, beating a team like OU isn't something I would consider shocking. It's just what we do from time to time.

    I'm watching the Miami/Va Tech game right now... and I firmly believe we could play those two teams and even beat them. We've come a long way.

    GO STATE!!!

    Re: Do any you go into a game that you feel like we can't win?

    There's a reason I tune in, show up, etc. and it sure as **** because I'm sure ISU is going to lose. I'm classic Lloyd for sure, "So you're saying there's a chance!" There have been plenty of games where I didn't think we had much of a chance, but I always have hope. Now, that opinion has changed a quarter or two into the game, but the Cyclones always find a way to pull me back in. If I didn't believe, I wouldn't tune in.

    I always think we will win but I still say critical things at critical times. That way I'm not super disappointed if we miss a PAT.
