    ISU snipet from the Lincoln newspaper

    Today's Lincoln paper had a quick look at each opponent on NU's schedule, here's what they wrote about ISU:

    HuskerExtra.com - Lincoln, Nebraska - Huskerextra - Football

    Iowa State

    Oct. 18, Ames, Iowa

    The background: Though the Cyclones went just 3-9 last year, they improved quite a bit as the season progressed and have their fans optimistic about the abilities of coach Gene Chizik.

    Coming out of spring: There’s still uncertainty at quarterback — a battle between Austen Arnaud and Omaha North grad Phillip Bates, who has done very well picking up the offense. The Cyclones are in desperate need of playmakers. J.J. Bass, Alexander Hamilton and Jason Scales give ISU hope at running back. But the receiver spot remains a big question mark.

    Quotable: “There are many growing pains ahead,” Chizik told USA Today. “I feel athletically, we are still a little bit off where we need to be. We need to put together solid recruiting classes over and over (and then) you eventually claw your way to being competitive with some of the upper-echelon teams in this league.”
    Is Bass still suspended?

    If Hamilton is our running back I just hope Aaron Burr isn't on the opposing team because Burr would just stop Hamilton dead in his tracks.

    A Duel for the ages...
