    Kansas two week prep for ISU

    I really only like to look forward to one game at a time but was looking at kansas's schedule they have a bye this week and then face us in Lawerence. Like they need more of an advantage when we play them.

    Beat KSU

    Farmageddon costs ISU a bye week and a home game this season.

    Farmageddon was a no brainer. Win it and we can afford to lose to the predicted winner of the North. It's a psuedo bowl game in a year where will we qualify for a lower tier bowl. Yeah...I said it. Kudos to Pollard.

    Bye weeks do not always assure better performance. A lot of teams struggle getting back into game speed. That being said we still will have more than our hands full at KU.

    A bye week would have been very nice to get ARob 100%.

    That said...you have to take the money and do the Arrowhead game.

    That's one way to look at it. A very narrow-minded way.

    IMO, bye weeks on a 12 game schedule are overrated. Especially when you've got a team with momentum. Unless you're banged up, I think they're usefulness is overstated.

    As far as costing us a home game, look at the '10 schedule and let me know the impact there. Or, take a peek at the financial package for this.

    Re: Kansas two week prep for ISU

    How does the Arrowhead game cost us a bye week? Weren't we scheduled to play the KSU game this weekend anyway, even if it was in Ames?

    I think you're right. ISU hasn't had a bye week in years. That has to end.

    Why? We have a confident football team right now. Get them on the field as quick as you can and keep their heads in it. If you can't figure something out in a week, 2 weeks isn't going to help you.

    Yes, because everyone shows up in Ames the Saturday after Thanksgiving for a football game.
    Bad idea for a game that weekend. No students, fans are traveling (or shopping) and it's usually cold as (well you know).

    Think of Farmageddon from a recruit's standpoint, only a few can say they've played in an NFL stadium
