    I am one of those fanatics that you are referring to in the video.

    If ISU loses to NIU then we are in for a long pathetic season. Now I am not saying we win by 30+, but we should handle them easily and I don't care that they are supposedly the best team in the MAC (cause quite frankly thats not saying much).

    Why should Iowa State be able to handle them easily in the first game of the season? This team has shown us nothing to make people think that. Nobody has any clue what to expect from Iowa State's defense this year and they'll be up against a quality D-1 offense. There is no reason to expect an "easy" victory in this one.

    I know what I have seen from watching games last year, watching various spring practices and talking to defensive coaches. Did we lose people on defense? Yes, but I feel we have better people stepping in and the defense will be improved on from last year.

    That is fine and you could very well be right. But using the word "easy" is a pretty strong statement when describing a Cyclone victory for this game. This is a 2nd tier (behind the Boise's, TCU's & Utah's of the world) non-BCS school coming into Trice, not North Dakota State.

    then you saw us barely beat Minnesota then in the bowl game. NIU is just as good as that minnesota team. we could win by 14-17pts, but we could also win by 3, or lose by 3... How many times have we beat a team with NIUs talent in the 1st game of the season easily? um very, very rarely, if ever.

    I don't know what's in my coffee this am, but I agree with you. You can see, in just two seasons, that Jerry Kill has changed the culture and intensity of NIU football.
    I expect ISU to struggle with them, and would just be happy with a win.

    Thank you Chris for another Talkin with Tron Vlog. I look forward to these because of Tron's intensity for Cyclone Athletics. Tron, could you possibly wear a tighter shirt next video?

    Well, we should have beaten Minnesota by much more. I think most people would agree with that. I expect AA to be considerably better this coming season. But, point taken.

    I still think we will win by at least 14 points. Maybe win by 10.

    The only game I know we won't lose this year is UNI. The only games I know we won't win this year are Texas and OU.
