    Michigan "clearly overmatches ISU on paper"

    Interesting. At least they consider us a big game and not just a warm up. Not enough said about where this game is being played. Hilton is dangerous- young team or not.

    Fred usually needs a couple months to gel his team together. That being said, Hilton Magic.

    BR does seem to spit in ISU's eye on the regular. Click on their expectation for Vaughn under their "best bet for where '14 recruits go" Not sure how they do it so often without doing it on purpose.

    I think I am looking foward to this game more than any other this year. At that point we will probably be trying to get the taste of football out of our mouths, and there is no better place than Hilton to do that. A win over Michigan could spark this team to a solid non-conference season, which ISU has not had the last 2 years.

    Also, RV will be in town.

    Re: Michigan "clearly overmatches ISU on paper"

    LOL at no mention of Hilton. Hopefully Beilein and the gang have no idea what Hilton is all about, but I doubt it.

    Hopefully I'm able to get tickets.

    Too bad they don't know that after Rashad commits to us at halftime that he'll be suiting up in the second half.

    This - the last two years ISU has started very slowly and looked pretty awful up until conference play begins. With the vast amount of new players, I would guess we'll have some early season frustrations again this year.

    I am not too confident in our chances to beat Michigan, but I expect Fred will have the team playing well by conference play and we'll be dancing again this season!
