    Re: USA Today picks ISU for the upset

    It all depends on the first drive of the game for each team in my opinion.

    If our offense comes out fully intact (AA, AR, RS, etc) and puts a good drive together and if our d puts a stop on their first drive that will set the tone for the whole day.

    Although it would be nice to see, I don't see it happening. Unlike Nebraska, Oklahoma State has offensive weapons. I would think OSU wins this one by three scores and maybe more. ISU will have to become bowl eligible against someone else.

    Absolutely I don't think we are very good when playing from behind so the first drive is huge. We need a td right off the bat. I don't know if it's a confidence thing or not But I think we need to score right away.

    What???!!?? I guess some "realistic" ISU fans need to remind USA Today there is no way it is happening.

    Re: USA Today picks ISU for the upset

    We will pull off the upset because our volleyball team pulled it off against Texas.

    It's deja-vu all over against from the Nebraska week.

    Re: USA Today picks ISU for the upset

    I don't get this...I like the upset pick, but I think this will be like the A&M game all over again. We have yet to stop a decent offense this season, and for that matter, score against a decent defense. I hope I'm proven wrong, and will gladly come back here and eat some crow, but I just think our best chances are against Colorado and Mizzou.

    not following your logic? if we were playing Texas on Saturday it might make sense, but we're playing okie state.

    The only difference is road-win vs. home-win and two different teams this week.

    I was trying to draw the analogy between two big upsets, huge football upset preceded by a huge volleyball upset the Wednesday before.

    Volleyball setting the tone for Saturday.

    Re: USA Today picks ISU for the upset

    So, you guys ***** about not getting any attention, then as soon as they say something, even something positive, about us, you tell them how wrong they are. I wouldn't mention us either.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: USA Today picks ISU for the upset

    Ive heard and seen alot of buzz about an ISU upset this weekend. I actually dont like it because its fodder for Gundy to use to motivate his team. I want to catch Okie St completely asleep. I dont want them feeling like everyone is expecting an upset.
