    We Will Not Beat Colorado Next Week.

    I know a lot of us have penciled this in as our bowl ticket but there is no way this offense is good enough to win us another game. We are too banged up to be effective. Arnaud's hand is clearly effecting him, and Tiller is too inexperienced to be effective or consistant. Overall the Offense has taken a significant step backwards from midway through the year and it will be hard to score double figures on the buffs (and if you think Colorado's D is bad remember how we barely managed 10 pts. on a horrid aTm defense).

    We will struggle with them if our offense doesnt get going

    I'm not concerned at all about the CU game next week. OK State was a horrific match up for us. CU won't be able to expose our lack of speed on defense.

    Re: We Will Not Beat Colorado Next Week.

    Colorado is No OK ST. that being said, no game is a for sure game for us and no game should be even expected as a win. This team has a long ways to go before we are considered a good team. To say we will definitely lose, is as off base as saying we definitely will win though.

    I believe in this coach. He'll get us ready for CU.

    Anything could happen in that game. ISU needs to get out of this offensive (and defensive and special teams) malaise.

    Re: We Will Not Beat Colorado Next Week.

    I will never say never, but it's not looking good. If you had to describe ISU as "contenders" or "pretenders" right now... I would say we are pretenders.

    If the other team doesn't turn it over 8 times, we don't have much of a shot when our top QB is suffering badly.

    Rhoads was correct at the half... our defense was keeping us in the game. But 3 and outs on every offensive possession is the fastest way to kill your defense.

    I really wish we weren't on national tv right now. It isn't helping us whatsoever.

    Oh... and by the way... CU is playing WAY better than us right now.

    We've never been as good as some here have felt, nor are we as bad as we seem right now. This team is just as limited as the last 3-4-5 years were. As much as some of us love the new coaching staff, we still lack the horses to compete regularly. Speed kills - teams like ours that lack it.

    I think we lack size too... especially up front on defense. OSU is getting a heck of a push from their offensive line.

    Re: We Will Not Beat Colorado Next Week.

    Honestly, I just wonder if A&M is horrible on the road.

    Colorado and Missouri. Two winnable games. Let's see how this plays out.

    Rump looks like he will be a great one for us. He looks the part and is only a sophomore. Maggitt looks like he could be a good one. Neal tries his hardest, but he's WAY undersized.... most FBS college teams LBers are bigger than Neal. We desperately need a couple JUCO D-linemen.

    Re: We Will Not Beat Colorado Next Week.

    C'mon now. Don't get so down on 'em right away just because of this game.

    Remember that OSU is the second best team in the big 12 and has great speed and the best run defense in the conference. Since ISU runs more than they pass it makes it hard to establish the offense.

    I didn't think we'd beat Nebraska, but hey, that's why you play the game.
