    Re: Extra Points: Cyclones say they won't look past KU

    I expect CPR and the team to come out ANGRY. After being pummeled for two weeks in a row, they'll be hungry.

    They'll be hungry and they wont be ramming into 4 and 5 star caliber players every down. KU has some talent, but not OU/UT talent.

    I just posted pretty much the same thing in the prediction thread. Some fans are jumping off the wagon because ISU lost to two more talented teams. OU lost to KSU and ND both in the argument for NC game if they win out. UT struggled a bit but the blowout loss to OU in the RRR seemed to awaken them.
    I thought we looked OK against OU at least in the first half, UT we seemed flat. CPR said we were tired and it showed. Its hard to beat a team like UT when you spot them a big lead, almost impossible if they are more talented.

    No reason for ISU to "look past" anyone because they havent proven much. Thats not a shot at this team at all just saying that where they are as a group (5-5) looking for eligibility and trying to "take the next step" doesnt allow them to not be 100% focused on the task at hand.

    KU doesnt have the balance to burn us with the pass and run (havent shown it so far). This should help that they cant exploit the backup CB like the OU/UT receivers. Stack the box and stop the run ISU wins this game.


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”

    Re: Extra Points: Cyclones say they won't look past KU

    I'm looking for CPR to do something early to shock KU, like the onside kick to start the Baylor game, so that we gain the psychological advantage early, even if the play doesn't work great.

    If ISU looks past ANY game this year, this is not the game to overlook. Nothing is a gimme.

    Go wreck the Jhawks, we need this one

    Re: Extra Points: Cyclones say they won't look past KU

    I'm going to be honest. I believe the culture around football is changing here and I was upset with how we performed against UT and OU when in years past I had just written those off as losses. My confidence and what I expect from the team is definitely as high as it has been. That being said, let's not try to pretend that this game doesn't scare the **** out of all of us.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Not scared. Looking forward to us showing that we are the team we are. We have only lost to teams ranked currently in the Top 25. We beat everyone else. This is not a game we "can" we, it is a game we "should" win. And that is what is different about this program. We are now winning the games we "should."

    Yes, since we all know anger is all it takes to win a football game. Ask UNIGuy4Cy how the anger helped us in the OU game.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”
