    This is 2013's Signature Win!!!

    I thought back to our annual "big win" since CPR arrived. There was a pretty significant story line around each. I think there is a perfect storm forming for tomorrow's game:


    • 2009. Beat Nebraska 9-7. Terrible weather day. Nebraska commited 8 turnovers and we get out with the win.
    • 2010. Beat Texas 28-21. Story line (in hindsight) turned out to be that we were the better team. Texas went on to a losing record. Crazy to think of with the difference in resources and the recent history they had at the time.
    • 2011. The biggest of them all. Beat Oklahoma State 37-31 in an amazing game. Story line, which was the biggest story in sports that day, was the plane crash that killed 2 Ok State women's basketball coach that morning. Some thought (as I recall) to not playing the game?
    • 2012. Beat TCU 37-23 just days after the college footbbal world's biggest story was that Casey Pachall, TCU's possible all-conference QB was off the team and entering rehab. We got Boykin in his first start and took advantage of it.


    I think there is a combination of a lot working in our favor. One of the biggest stories in college football right now is the foregone conclusion that Mack Brown will be let go in light of their AD's departure (2011-2012 similarity with the distraction). Their QB is hurt and not playing (see 2012). The weather is suppose to be bad (see 2009-Texas turnovers, anyone?). And, looking at their results thus far, maybe we're as good a team (2010). Anyone with me?

    I hope this is not the signature win of the season. It would similar to 2010 which ended up disappointingly. UT was not good that year and is not good this year.

    I would not consider this a signature win, and I don't consider TCU last year one either.

    A signature win, for me, is a game that going into, I give ISU zero chance to win, and they win it. That has only happened three times for me (Nebraska '09, Texas '10, OSU '11)

    Nope, this will be an ugly win on a rainy night and it will happen when Wally's defense proves how tough they are. The signature win will come when we upset Baylor in Waco. A lot of you don't think it will happen, but you didn't see the Nebraska in '09, Texas in '10, or Okie State in '12 happening either.

    Not signature, but still one we desperately need nonetheless.

    Re: This is 2013's Signature Win!!!

    I hope we win, but I also hope it isn't our "signature win" like in 2010 and 2012. In 2010 we beat a really bad Texas team and in 2012 we caught a TCU team on the one week of the season we had a chance of beating them. I want this to just be another win. I want the "signature" win to be against Baylor or, better yet, Oklahoma.

    I'd include the TCU game. It was the first road win against a team in the top 15 since 1977. It snapped TCU's twelve game winning streak which was the longest active streak at the time.

    I will not join you in predicting a win over Texas. If it does happen, the glow of victory it will be that much sweeter.

    May be a win, but not a "signature", the way UT has been playing.

    Plenty of other opportunities for "signature" wins--and why should there have to be only one in a season?

    If we do have a signature win, please let it be against Oklahoma.

    Re: This is 2013's Signature Win!!!

    Winning this game would be "signature" only with regard to the name of the athletic department we'd be defeating. The one I want the most is Oklahoma. I hope see that W sometime before I die (I was alive in 1990 but only 5 years old).

    You need to just shut the hell UP!!! The last time we predicted a win vs. a team named Texas we were punked by punk named J'Covan Brown in the XII tourney.. So just keep your little mouth shut!

    Re: This is 2013's Signature Win!!!

    I agree with most of the sentiment above about this just being another win should we come out on top.

    Granted, if we absolutely dominate on both sides of the ball and win decisively (MOV > 21 pts) AND Mack Brown gets the axe then yeah, I'd call it a signature win.

    It would be a solid win against a big program. If this is the signature win for 2013, things could get pretty bad.
