    will we beat kansas?

    what d'ya think. the pessimist in me says we lose at kansas. the optimist in me says we then beat WV at home and finish 6-6.

    7-5 would be freakin' sweet though. any one of us would have taken that at the beginning of the season. I would have even taken 6-6. tough league.

    Next Saturday will be the low point of the CPR era. Maybe it will assure that some offensive heads will roll at the end of the season.

    Re: will we beat kansas?

    unfortunately kansas has shown a lot of improvement throughout the season. wish i could say that about our team.

    really wish we had them early on instead of now when they seem to be getting better and more confident despite all the losses.

    Kansas is playing very well, will be a very tough game to win.

    I'm afraid this may be the case. KU has lost 20 straight games against AQ teams. 20 straight games. If our team is good for anything, it's for breaking massive losing streaks for other teams. We've done it before, and if our coaches don't get the offense straightened out, KU will beat us.

    I think we've gone 9 straight games without a 100 yard rusher now. KU just had two of them yesterday against Tech, including one that went for over 200 yards. I realize our rush defense has been decent at times, but they're going to chew the clock and we will get beat if our offense can't move the sticks consistently.

    Re: will we beat kansas?

    This game scared me at the beginning of the season because we usually struggle with Kansas no matter how bad they are or how good we are. And now that they seem to be improving and very easily could have won their last 2 games vs Texas and Tech (2 teams who beat us fairly easily) I am now scared to death of this game.

    I don't think we will win, and then we beat WVU at home to get to 6-6. I hope I'm wrong and we go 7-5..


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    Re: will we beat kansas?

    I think we will win. In saying that I'm scared about this game. I've been scared about this game ever since we barely beat them in Ames last season. I got even more scared when Kansas started to improve and compete. In saying that I don't think a Paul Rhoads coached team will drop this one.

    Re: will we beat kansas?

    we have soooo much more to play for than them. but that didn't stop kansas from destroying our north title hopes a few years back then either. hopefully the offense can pull their heads out of their arses and move the ball.

    I think we lose 24-10 or around there. I see no better time to throw Richardson out there than this week and at least it will be a rallying cry. He may lack experience but experience only got us 7 points yesterday.

    hope as you may, i wouldn't count on it. coaches see the three QB's every day and there must be something keeping him off of the field.

    the ISU offense has lost any confidence it once had. KU has been playing tough against quality opponents as of late. I think KU rolls.
