    Different coach, different system, different team altogether. Not great, but better than last year.

    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.
    You werent good last season yet you started the season the same way you did this season, playing no one and pointing at an undefeated start only to be overwhelmed come conference play.

    Thanks for answering my question. Can you ignore people on this board?

    I just think Iowa would be a matchup issue for TTU like Minnesota was for you 6 months ago, just my opinion, carry on.

    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.
    Yeah, I don't think anyone has a real good read on us yet. The only "decent" team we've played is TCU, and I say decent because they have a good defense. We'll learn much more in the upcoming weeks. Iowa State certainly isn't a bad team, regardless of record, and will be another decent measuring stick for our team.

    That's a fair enough opinion, I suppose. It's hard to read teams that haven't played any common opponents. Even then it's difficult to read, as common opponents don't always tell the story.

    The only other win Iowa will get is Purdue. Iowa has beaten no one, the only two good teams they played they lost. And to your other point about TT losing to Iowa, put down the crack pipe. You do realize that TT is a good passing team. Whats Iowa's weakness? Oh thats right their secondary blows.

    I see one game on iowas schedule that I would call a win and that's Purdue. They will be dogs in the rest of them.


    I'm kind of a big deal!

    No..........don't think so. Kingsbury and company would probably figure out Iowa's can't cover anyone right away, and not wait until 5 minutes left in the game.

    You rang? Lol. RaiderMacht is giving y'all a fair assessment of this season's Tech squad. Our OL is improving thanks to the return of G Beau Carpenter. Tech's defense is legit. And Tech has playmakers all over the offense. The big question week to week is what kind of QB play we'll see. Glad to have a week to chat with you clones. Next season we can do it in person at your tailgates.

    Re: Greetings, Cyclones!

    I really don't think ISU wins this game, but our QB situation could make it at least a little bit interesting early on. Hopefully, KK can figure it out in a week.
