    Optimism - Pattern is right for a solid Nebraska game...

    Okay, speaking of drinking the Kool-Aid, consider this...

    Remember those IQ test questions dealing with patterns? Well think about this:

    UNLV - first half bad; second half great
    Kansas - first half great; second half bad
    Baylor - first half bad; second half bad

    so... what next?...

    Nebraska - first half great; second half great


    GO CLONES!!! BEAT NEBRASKA!!!

    I think you guys are drinking way to much beer right now and it's monday morning. There is nothing this coaching staff is doing that might make me think beating Nebraska is possible. Nebraska is improving. We are getting worse. We just got pounded by a first year coach to one of the worst football teams in the country year in and year out. Our team can't run the football. Our team can't play defense which is what Chizik is supposed to known for being able to do.

    i respectfully disagree to an extent, ISU certainly can win and will likely keep it close for a half. NU will come out on top based on offensive firepower alone as neither team really has a good D, but NU has the better offense and its not really that close.

    also this is just my opinion but Chizik also had good defenses, not great, at texas with probably top 3 talent in the country. ISU is probably not top 50 talent, so of course you will see a significant drop off. On the bright side he is at least making improvements and making the team better as a whole. I see the same thing happening with Pelini, he has had superior talent since he has been back in the college ranks at NU OU and LSU.

    With your logic I will go tailgate get drunk and watch Nebraska's first year coach have his team run circles around us again.

    Just out of curiosity, where was that offensive "firepower" 2 weeks ago in front of your home crowd?

    Re: Optimism - Pattern is right for a solid Nebraska game...

    Here's the deal...

    IF and I mean IF we win on Saturday, folks are going to look at it as some 'upset' and likely rush the field and all that crap.

    Newsflash...Nebbie isn't that good...neither are we, but a win over them is nothing more than a win over an average team.

    I'll take it, but I might puke at how it gets portrayed by the fans and media as some giant 'statement win'.

    I agree that a win over Nebraska shouldn't be called any kind of "statement win" however...

    a win over Nebraska is still A WIN OVER NEBRASKA!!!

    I'll gladly take that any season it's offered!

    Why don't you just stay in the parking lot. I think you, and anyone who has the misfortune of sitting around you, with that attitude, will be happier.

    nebraska has the worst.

    Iowa gets a break because they are as much delusional as obnoxious.
