    Dont look now

    but guess who is combined for a 6-0 start and sitting on top the standings. Our record looks bad and lets face it, it is, but things will get better moving forward.

    You beat me too it. Obviously it's still early but there are three undefeated Big 12 teams and we've lost by a combined 8 points to two of them.

    This makes me feel a lot better about our 1-4 record and last place standing.


    There are systems for a reason in this world...economic stability, interest rates, growth. It's not all a conspiracy to keep you in little boxes, alright? It's only the miracle of consumer capitalism that means you're not lying in your own s**t, dying at 43 with rotten teeth.

    Awesome! I love me some moral victories. Tech are world beaters this year.

    I'm glad the miserable are miserable. When they get giddy, I worry.

    Not a moral victory, its a statement of fact. If ISU only wins one more game Ill be very disappointed. I think it is clear to most people that we came close to beating two good teams and there are a lot of bad teams left on the schedule.

    The 2 teams you are referring to are 6-0 largely because 4 of their games have been against Kansas, Kansas State, and us.

    That was a 7 point loss on the scoreboard only. They had more than double the yardage. Two of our Td's were gifts. We had one sustained scoring drive until they went prevent. We were dominated at the line of scrimmage on both sides.

    Let me guess, you felt the same way after Iowa? Texas Tech beat our but today. The scoreboard, much like the Iowa game, did not reflect what happened on the field. Tech would have beat us by 30+ had they not made every mistake in the book. Now, the Texas game is the one game that I hold onto as having a glimmer of hope. However, Texas looked like they were practicing against ISU by trying to get McCoy throws. They could have ran for 300 yards, but they threw the ball time and again against us. The good news is that we have our best chances for a Big 12 win remaining on the schedule. The bad news is that we can't expect each team we face between now and the end of the year to have to play their back-up qb, turn the ball over, and make mistakes all game long.

    Re: Dont look now

    And don't look now, but KSU is 2-4.

    No one would argue that Snyder is not a great coach. When you don't have the horses, not much you can do.

    But our offense just makes me want to puke. CPR was a complete idiot to promote Mess instead of getting some talent outside the program. He better wise up at year end, or he will eventually cost himself his job.

    I'll restrain my enthusiasm until Tech finishes better than 7-5.

    Pretty average teams actually.
    Big 12 is bad.

    Re: Dont look now

    The loss doesn't bother me as much as watching the offense show zero signs of life...again.

    Texas Tech tried to hand us this game.

    Yeah, that's what football is. But guess what, the 6-0 team made those mistakes. The 6-0 team turned it over. We didn't. If that's not a silver lining then I don't know what is. Like Mack Brown said, Who gives a **** if you get outplayed by a team in every category. A win is a win is a win is a win. period.
