    CFN's last ISU '08 prediction....

    LINK

    Does anyone think they're not giving ISU enough credit? (Granted, they're spot on about the abysmal pass D). But, a 13-point win by KSU? Not so sure about that...

    I think we have a legit chance to win and demoralize an already-down KSU headed into an uncertain offseason and a rebuilding year. If AA can find his groove, A-Rob jumpstart the ground game and the D decides to show up, ISU can play spoilers of Prince's last hurrah.

    I'd like to think we'll win or keep it close but I really haven't seen much this year that would lead me to believe otherwise.

    I'm not going to criticize CFN. They had us winning 6 games this year and we didn't do it. We have been in close games that we could of won, but didn't. Kansas St should be favored, and does it really matter if it is by 7 or 14.

    I don't see us winning. It's possible, but we have a bad habit of making opponents look like Super Bowl contenders. Especially on the road.

    Vegas says 10 pts... Have we seen anything to make us believe this will be anything other than a 10+ pt loss? I am not sure our defense could stop valley HS at this point.

    How much credit does the last place team deserve? 13 points on the road is giving us credit.

    Or their abysmal rush D.

    Have you taken a look at their D? It's actually worse.

    I'm looking forward to the over/under. Now I gotta go look.

    It could be higher, so we should feel lucky

    We have shown, even given a great opportunity, we cannot win on the road.

    Re: CFN's last ISU '08 prediction....

    I've learned to not get my hopes up too high with this team when it comes to a win. If we couldn't win in Colorado, this one is going to be tough. And god forbid if they decide to bring in their back up QB.

    Re: CFN's last ISU '08 prediction....

    The first line of their analysis pretty much sums up the collective seasons of ISU and KSU:

    "There’s Texas Tech vs. Oklahoma, and then there’s this."

    Gee, what could they possibly be implying?
