    Just for fun:

    What would the fallout from a NDSU loss on Thursday be?

    Embarassing yes but not suicide.

    If there is ever an excuse for losing, it is when you have a new coach and it is the coach's first game as a head coach.

    We'd beat Iowa the following week, just like we did in 2007 after opening the season with losses to the Kent State and UNI.

    As nice at it would be to beat Iowa, I think I'd prefer to beat NDSU and lose to Iowa than switch the two around.

    So you are saying you would rather win the Divisional Final rather than the Super Bowl... you are crazy!

    Re: Suicide Scenario.

    If we lose to NDSU, it brings into serious question whether we hired the right coach. That said, I don't anticipate this game being too much of a problem.

    Re: Suicide Scenario.

    It would probably be very similar to 2007 when we lost to Kent State in the home opener with a new coach...feel free to dig up the threads and see what it was like, I am sure it was brutal

    Very good point. A couple years ago our new coach lost to Kent State and UNI. In hindsight, I don't think we hired the right coach and most would probably agree.

    And yes, we did bounce back to beat Iowa..... en route to a 2 win season.

    If we lose to NDSU there should be people jumping out of buildings, because it would raise serious questions about the team and the staff, and I honestly couldn't see us bouncing back from that to win more than 1 or 2 games all year. With the schedule we have in the next two seasons, we need more than that just to build back some momentum for the program.

    Fixed (we beat Iowa, K-State, and Colorado in 2007).

    If we lose to NDSU...
    The goal then has to be to beat Kent St. and end the road losing streak. If we're taking baby steps then let that game be the focus.

    The ultimate worst case scenario: NDSU wins, LakeBison wins $17,000,000 from betting on the game and uses all his winnings to buy CF and post something about NDSU in every thread.

    I agree. I would certainly be disappointed, but it wouldn't be the end of the world, and it's not outside the realm of possibility. I think we have the horses to take care of business, even with the handicap of a new staff and a team learning a new system. If we get upset, then I'll look forward to the next game just the same.

    I would be upset, but then, after all, we are talking about Iowa State, and we have been there before, and more than once.........
