    Is the monkey off of the back?

    Everybody in the local media says the difference between Iowa and ISU is that Iowa has lately learned to win the close ones while ISU hadn't gotten there yet. Is this the win that turns that trend around for ISU? If so that would be the greatest thing for sports in this stats.

    If not then it's a good start.
    IMO we threw the monkey off our back, told him to put his mouth on the curb, and stomped down hard!

    Right now we are winning games that we should not win - and I love it!

    The things that happened to Nebraska today usually happen to ISU.

    That was just one but hopefully the start of a trend.

    Re: Is the moneky off of the back?

    I would definately say it's a good start. It's been a while since I've seen ISU close out a close game. Over the past few weeks I've seen a lot of ISU fans saying that the team has an uncanny knack for finding ways to lose. That was the first thing that came to my mind the last five minutes of the game. Nebby kept getting the ball back and it looked very much like that low, blocked PAT would come back to haunt them, but ISU never gave in and took care of business. This is not something I'm used to seeing coming from ISU, but's it's a breath of fresh air.

    Both Iowa and Iowa State doing well in athletics is definitely a good thing for this state, AND both universities.

    Hell yeah the monkey is off our back. We threw that bastard down, buried him with a shovel, and then buried the shovel.

    Then they are full of crap. The biggest difference between Iowa and ISU is talent, especially on both lines and at linebacker. That gap is closing on the offensive side of the ball, at least.
