    Anyone know what happened to that Baylor fan that kept coming on our site and running smack talk. He must be in a hole somewhere shivering.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Tim Griffin thinks ISU is #5 in the conference...

    I liked this from the "What we learned..." sidebar:

    3. The best coaching job in the country Saturday was turned in by Paul Rhoads. Sure, the Cyclones had a few breaks with all of the turnovers. But the new Iowa State coach directed his team to a 9-7 victory over Nebraska without starting quarterback Austen Arnaud and leading rusher Alexander Robinson in the lineup. And the Cyclones did it despite a virus that caused many members of the team to get sick in the locker room during halftime. Rhoads is the first ISU coach to win five games in his first season since George Veenker in 1931. And with one more victory, he’ll have the Cyclones headed to their first bowl game since 2005.

    Re: Tim Griffin thinks ISU is #5 in the conference...

    Can't say I disagree with his rankings. I think there are probably better teams in the conference that he had ranked below us, but as everyone's playing right now, this makes sense.

    I still hate Tim Griffin...better to have him not on your side than on it, IMO.

    However, that being said, he does give us some nice pub. I would like to know who hid the gametape from the national media though.

    ISU still controls where they will end up. You can't look behind you. If ISU wins this week they will be tied for first in the North (assuming K-state loses at OU)...

    If K-State can beat OU in Norman, they deserve to win the North anyway.

    Re: Tim Griffin thinks ISU is #5 in the conference...

    As a contributor to the anti-Tim Griffin bandwagon, I have to admit that this week he has his facts straight. I'm not just saying that because he is being positive about us either. He's one of the few journalists/commentators outside of the Des Moines/Ames based guys to mention the virus and to give ISU credit for causing the turnovers (most of them anyway).

    So, I still think he gets his facts wrong too much, but hats off to him for this week. He's one of the few that paid attention to our side.
