    Thumbs up Look like you have two teams in the same situation

    I thought this was an interesting thread on the Baylor site....

    http://www.baylorfans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=177247

    I think we can take care of Baylor and I think we can put up a lot of points on their defense. I don't think they will put up that many points with their new QB. I think if Griffin was playing you would be looking at both teams scoring in the 30's or 40's.

    Even our third string is good enough to keep us in this game.
    This is ******* hilarious. I'm not even joking....I just busted out laughing.

    I don't understand why the guy who said Baylor would go 0-8 in conference without Griffin got trashed. If they don't beat Iowa State they most likely won't win a game.

    Re: Look like you have two teams in the same situation

    You have to be pretty confident if you are a Baylor fan. Their team speed last year absolutely overwhelmed us. Especially their defense.

    They were up on us 38-3 last year. They have been playing with their 3rd string QB, 2nd string RB.

    We have had a couple real big let down losses.

    If I was a Baylor fan I would be licking my chops at the chance to play ISU.

    Hopefully we take care of business and pull one of the biggest (if not the biggest) year to year scoreboard turnaround. It would be a really nice feeling to get a Big 12 win!

    I don't see how any Iowa State fan could be cocky about any game, let alone a conference game. It wouldn't surprise me if Iowa State gets soundly beat in this game. It wouldn't surprise me if Baylor squeaks by and wins. It wouldn't shock me if Iowa State wins a nail biter. It will shock the hell out of me if Iowa State wins going away.

    I think it will be a close game either way. It is going to be chilly night. weather could be a factor for the boys from Baylor.

    Definitely true there - we've had the hottest summer almost since they've been keeping track in Austin and with ISU focusing on the run game it may really be a blessing to have some chill in the air.

    Either way I think it's close and I think BOTH teams are desperate for a win.

    Saturday's forecast actually sounds pretty decent. High around 50 and low around 35. Most of the game should be played in the mid to low 40's.

    It will be a close Big 12 game. Who knows what will happen.

    That guy is correct.

    I don't see any similarity between ISU's and Baylor's situation. If Baylor beats us they will finish 1-7 in the conference. If they don't they will finish 0-8. What difference does that make? It's not like they're going to a bowl game this year, or any year, for that matter, until they leave the Big XII.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    The only similarity is that both teams have suffered significant injuries. In Baylor's case, those injuries have pushed ISU out of the "sure win" category into the "could win" division. You are correct in that BU must win this weekend.

    But I'd stay away from the "until they leave the Big X12" smack. There's more talk about ISU being a school out these days than Baylor and it's for a very simply reason . . . ISU adds absolutely nothing to the conference. But then, somebody has to be the 12th school, or the conference couldn't be called the Big 12. Right?
