    Iowa State dominated Texas at nearly every position. Which is important because Texas has talent at every position (4 and 5 stars). It is Texas' coaching that makes them a bad team. The biggest thing for me is that our offensive line pretty much dominated run blocking. Gannon handled Jeffcoat.

    Re: Greetings, Cyclones!

    Texas Tech is the only team in the Big 12 I can't get a read on. I think they are a good team and made a GREAT hire in Kliff K. but they also haven't really played anybody. Iowa State has looked better the last two weeks after looking awful against UNI and Iowa but it's hard to get a read on us either.

    Looking forward to Saturday.

    I take it you have not seen Iowa play this season? They are a really good team. I have not been impressed at all by your defensive line or linebackers no matter what your post says. You would struggle against Weisman. Just looking at it from an outside perspective. Didnt you struggle to beat Minnesota last season?

    Personally, i think TT would kick Iowa's ***. It would be a matchup nightmare for Iowa's defense. The only thing that would keep the score respectable would be the way Iowa chews big chunks of time clock keeping the ball on the ground and out of the hands of TT's offense. I think we would beat Iowa at this stage, tho.

    That loss is one of the most disappointing we'll see all season. There's no way that Iowa handles Tech's speed and physical play.

    I don't have a good read on Tech yet, but I don't see where Iowa is a good team, or better than Tech.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Greetings, Cyclones!

    I have to give credit where credit is due and Iowa is going to win 3-4 more games, compared to last season they are a good team. As for matching up to TTU's speed, am I the only one who watched them almost lose to Minnesota in their bowl game, where is this speed?

    Who cares about last season? We weren't good last season. We're talking about this season, try to keep up.

    If you're going to use that logic, Kansas ran for 400 yards against us last year, and only 50 yesterday. Of course, I, as a reasonable person, know that doesn't actually matter because I'm smart enough to know the transitive property doesn't mean **** in college football.

    If you don't understand that, please tell me so I can stop arguing with you.

    Drinking at 2:30 on a Sunday? I like it.

    Iowa gave up 26 points to a horrible offense yesterday. Tech would easily beat Iowa
