    Can we get a little ISU/KSU discussions going?

    The game is a mere 3 days away and other than the look-a-like thread, its been null and void.

    This is a winnable game, much the same way I felt about Colorado. I for one, am so sick and tired of hearing about the road losing streak. Please, beat these guys! Hopefully the defense can shore it up a little and slow them down. Again ISU should be able to rack up some decent points.

    If Arnaud has another 300 yards game(which im hoping he doesnt have to throw that much) hes going to be putting up some fairly nice numbers on the year.

    I really think this game is about as meaningless as they come. Even if we win, I don't see it giving us allot of momentum going into the off season.

    I'm pretty close to being in full-blown basketball mode, but a win on Saturday would be make me pretty happy. It's definitely winnable, and I think it would really make the off-season more tolerable.

    I agree that the game is meaningless this season, but I disagree about the off-season momentum. This team NEEDS a win for their confidence. So does our fan base.

    Not having a ten game losing streak is a whole bunch better than having a ten game losing streak!

    I was looking at the conference stats.

    Overall Football Stats 11-16-08 - Big 12 Conference - Official Athletic Site

    One thing that stood out to me was that as much as everyone complains about our rushing defense, K-State is substantially worse--by 47 ypg. For that matter, their scoring defense is worse than ours, too.

    Re: Can we get a little ISU/KSU discussions going?

    Why dont I just hand out rubber mallets, so I can be beaten soundly about the head and shoulders.....

    Maybe its helps my enthusiasm that im going to the game...i dunno, but an opportunity to get a Clones win in football, is a Clones win in football!

    While i dont see it as a huge momentum factor, look at the positives...Darks has 23 catches his last 3 games...thats impressive. Arnaud is racking up good yardage totals. Im just looking for the silver lining here to a VERY DISSAPOINTING SEASON.

    Re: Can we get a little ISU/KSU discussions going?

    A win is always better than a loss. I wouldn't say this win is totally meaningless. It would kill our Conference losing streak, our season losing streak and break that 3 year drought we have of winning on the road. I really believe a win this weekend could wipe the slate clean. Maybe it wouldn't be a big momentum factor, but it seems to me it could get the monkey off of our back and give us a clean start heading into next year. I think winning on the road could be a huge mental factor for us.

    Re: Can we get a little ISU/KSU discussions going?

    We only get 12 ISU football games a year, so I will be enjoying this one thoroughly, win or lose. After this weekend, we don't get any more real Cyclone football for 9 months!

    Steve Youngs monkey was a superbowl. ISUs monkey is a winning a stinking road game.

    sometimes i have to find humor in the folly of this season.

    Unless you're going for a higher draft pick.

    Here's some KSU discussion. Josh Freemen is tied for second in the Big XII in rushing touchdowns with 14. Josh Freemen is not a runningback, discuss!


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.
