    Opening line

    If anyone cares anymore, we're 31 points dogs to the Cowboys.

    Re: Opening line

    I would say that line is pretty favorable. I honestly cannot fathom how we keep them under 50.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    250K on the Cowboys. I love our team (in 2 years), but now I am taking OSU.

    The point being that we might actually score thirty, with Austen healthy again.

    Sure, we can keep it under 30.

    If Oklahoma State only plays their first team for about 10 minutes...

    Texas only scored 28 and 7 of it was a gift on a PF penalty from OSU. What makes ya think we'll score more on 'em than Texas did?

    Do you really think that they'll be as intense as they were for Texas? Or perhaps Texas was flat after a big showdown with Missouri?

    They're a damn fine team and are well coached. I'd expect them to be MORE intense, wanting to reclaim some momentum/confidence after a loss (See Colorado vs Missouri 10/25/08).

    Could we score 30 on 'em? Sure. Could we win? Yeah.

    Is there anything that suggest either of those will happen?

    Not at all.

    While I like the Simpson's - I'd rather not live my life in the land of Homer.

    I think last time we saw a line like this it was @ku last year and everyone lost a ton of credits.

    The last time ISU was a 30+ point dog:
    2007 - ISU (+30.5) vs. Oklahoma - OU 17-7

    Before that, it was:
    1998 - ISU (+34) at Kansas State - KSU 52-7

    That was also at Texas and they held Missouri to like 24 at Missouri, so I agree with you there is no way in hell we score 30.
