    CPR 2010 Signature FB Upset/Win ??

    We are going to be major underdogs in at least 4 or 5 games this coming year in football. If you were going to pick one game that we could win (pull-out from our Hawkeye), which long-shot might it be? Football - Schedule - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports I think CPR has at least a punchers shot at Oklahoma this year. We get the Sooners the week after their "Red River Shootout" and maybe we'll catch them flat after playing Texas. Don't laugh.....nobody (and I mean NOBODY) gave us much of a chance at breaking the 32 year loosing streak in Lincoln last year. Go Cyclones.....it's going to be a great year!

    Unless freerentz has something xtra special planned to pull the rug from underneath of us, we should take the hawks apart this year.

    Texas would be tops, hands down.

    Looking towards going to that game, great atmosphere, would be great exposure.

    Don't think it would ever happen, but would be my pick.

    Edit: Don't think this is game we will win, rather game I hope we win out of these five.

    I think we have every chance in the world to beat Iowa as you do not replace an OLine overnight, remember when Jake took over three years ago? Iowa's defense was a beast, but Jake had someone in the backfield before he knew it and they finished 6-6. I think we have a shot at every team on the schedule, don't be suprised if we give Texas a run for their money too, they lost alot and McCoy is a huge loss, plus we get them early in the season.

    Iowa's OL replacement makes this a possibility. No one knows for sure how soon they'll gel together, although no one knows for sure what to expect from us defensively (but Wally gives a lot of hope there!). I think this one is a real possibility.

    I think Texas would be a whole lot of fun, obviously. A good buddy at work is a big Texas fan, so there's that. But mostly the exposure of winning at Texas.

    I really don't know what Oklahoma looks like next year, but losing to them is a tradition I wouldn't mind ending.

    I want to beat Utah partially just because it's here in Ames, and I can see that one in person.

    So, why not, let's just beat them all....


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    I'd be perfectly happy just beating the teams that we can match up with, which quite likely would put us in a bowl. I'll go with Iowa though.

    Dude, u are insane! I get thinking we have a chance or even saying we will win but to phrase it as "take the hawks apart", I don't think so. Anything can happen in this rivalry and maybe we do "take them apart" but to say that ISU, a 7-6 team, will take apart a top 10 team at their place is just too much koolaid for me.


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Take apart or dominate would be too much to expect.

    I do believe that we can compete and have a real chance to win.

    Iowa loses 2 good tackles and a mediocre C/G. We lose our best OL and leader. It might be a push in the OL. Here's the difference. Iowa returns the best defensive front in the country. We don't return anyone in the front seven. Ouch. That being said. Iowa is our best chance at a huge upset even if they don't go Nebraska on us. It's a rivalry game that they consistently struggle with. With two new LB's for Iowa, I expect our short passing game to give them fits at times not allowing their DL to dominate. A turnover or two can decide this game.

    Utah to me won't be an upset. They lost too many kids.

    Utah would be an upset in the rest of the country's eyes, but I agree with you Istate. I have that one penned in as a win. I think we could beat Little Red at JT.

    I would love to win at Iowa, and think they can get the job done, but I don't think that win will carry the weight upsetting OU or Texas would have.

    Hold on, let me add this statement to my list of over-the-top statements you've made to indicate you're actually a hawk fan posing as a Cyclone fan, who makes insane statements like that trying to make our fanbase look stupid... and obsessed.

    Hey, we've always got a chance to win our in-state rivalry game, but to say "we should the hawks apart..." is way too much. Question- after you make these posts here, do you immediately go over to hawkeyenation and post a link to show them 'how stupid and obsessed those clown fans are'?

    Good question. I think we dominate unless they flood their field again.
