    Already talkin bowl games

    Didn't see this posted and thought some here might be interested. Sorry if already posted and I missed it. I don't know the writer but he thinks ISU will make a bowl game again this year.

    I'll take that season this year. Although I think we have a shot at KSU and KU more than MU and Utah.

    Picks us to beat Utah, Colorado, Tech and Mizzou, yet lose to KU and KSU? If we're good enough to beat those teams, then we'll destroy KU.

    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    If ISU beats TT, Utah, and Mizzou, they'll do more than play in a bowl game. They'll probably win the North.

    Re: Already talkin bowl games

    i honestly dont see us making a bowl game this year but i would love to see it. i hope the bowl win last year will help our boys confidence level this season. one thing i noticed last year was that we cut down the number of mistakes and stupid penalties, and i credit that to the coaching staff. remember with chizik when we kept getting personal fouls? 6 more days friends!!!

    Re: Already talkin bowl games

    He talks about Mike Leach like he's the end all to end all. I know Mike Leach was a good coach and will be missed, but Tommy Tuberville ain't no slouch either. I also think we have a better chance against Iowa than we do against Utah. I think, IF we were to get to six wins, it's going to be NIU, Iowa, UNI, KSU, KU and CU.

    I have to agree with the author on this. Mike Leach is pretty much the Godfather of the Spread offense, with an emphasis on the QB-WR relationship over the RB position, and it's been published in a couple of places that Tech hasn't had a 1000 yard rusher since the late 90s. Tuberville on the other hand was a defensive genius at Auburn and emphasized the running game, as well as clock management. When you combine these philosophies at one school, you create a mess - some players will get it, others won't. I don't see Tuberville able to have a QB throw for 2000 yards, let alone 3000+. However, I can see Tech's defense actually showing up to games rather than having their offense bail them out by scoring 35 points a game. This year will be the same at Tech as it will at KU - these teams will be adjusting to new philosophies and will go through some growing pains.

    If this idiot is the only one who thinks the 'Clones make a bowl game this year, we are in for a long season.
