    Will Nebraska kill ISU, or can we sneak one by them?? After their TTU loss, and our kicking woes, how do you view this matchup?

    Its still at Nebraska which is a tough one for us. That crowd is obnoxious. Could be a heated battle though. If our offense is able to find some strong rhythm early on and the D can step up, NU could be shocked.

    I am thinking it will be a pretty close game. This team will come to play and at the very least put up a fight and go toe-to-toe with the Huskers.

    Wouldn't be surprised at all if we pulled off the big upset!

    We NEED to be healthy, if so, we have a small chance. If not, we lose by 3 scores.

    Nebraska's offense is terrible. Hopefully if we score enough points we can sneak this one by them. It would be very nice to win a game that we weren't supposed to, so getting to a bowl would be much easier.

    I like strength on strength. ISU offensive line vs. kNU's d-line. If ISU puts up another 200 yards of rushing offense, I like our chances.

    We can definitely hang with them, if not pull the upset

    Nebbie's offense is good enough to score on our D at their place. I'd be surprised if we held them below 30.

    I think we'll have to outscore them.

    Hope the Clone's shock the world though!

    I think we need our Kicker back and +2 turnover Margin. Then we win. If that doesn't happen then we lose.

    We havn't played a game under CPR in a truly hostile environment yet. (Kent st. - crowd was never in it, KSU - neutral site, KU - only 40k and are as about as vocal as stafon johnson at this point). This week will be our first true road test. I think we'll hang and I'd like to think we have a shot, we just need to play our a$$es off!

    Gonna take our most complete game yet. D needs to kick it up even one more notch and the O will need to put together drive after drive.
    If we can come out strong I say we have a shot to be in it.

    ISU EZ! Seriously, if AA plays like he is capable and the receivers catch the ball there is no good reason why the Clones cannot hang with the Huskers. There is no need to sneak by the Huskers. Just kick the damn door down.

    There is only one reason why the Clones do not win their share of these types of games ie. KU. Winning the close ones is a habit and a matter of confidence. Paul keeps the kids sawing wood and it is the only way to overcome the ways of the past.

    We need Robinson to have a decent chance.

    It will be interesting to see how Nebraska comes out, especially after that loss to TTU. The biggest concern in this game is protecting the QB. Nebraska has one of, if not the best DL in the country, and Suh very well might be the #1 pick come April. Running the ball will be especially tough as well. I want to see how healthy A-rob & Arnaud are before making any predictions with this game.

    If the thoughts about ARob's injury are accurate, we won't have him. And without ARob, I give us a 10-20% chance to win this game.
