    Wink We will have our hands full Thursday

    Northern Illinois is a good team. This will not be a cake walk; we will be lucky to win.

    Why does everyone think this is a W?

    Because if you start counting games at home against a mid-major, albeit a fairly good one, as losses, you aren't likely to win many games. Last I checked, this game was still at the Jack. If we can't win it, so be it, but I'll count it as a W until Northern Ill. proves they can beat us on our field.

    Winning tomorrow is not lucky. Lucky is Lincoln last year. You have to have some "luck" generally to beat superior teams. NIU is not a superior team.

    Re: We will have our hands full Thursday

    We should win this because we are in the Big 12 and they are in the MAC!

    Pretty sad when a team returning 8 starters is predicted to push ISU to the limit... but nothing is new.

    It all comes down to whether Arnaud plays like a Big 12 QB that has been starting for 3 years or whether he still stares down the receiver he's throwing to, holds the ball too long and whether he can read the WHOLE field instead of 1/4 of it.

    IMHO, he holds the key, if he plays awesome, we win, if he struggles, we likely lose or squeak out a win.

    We should win this by more than 14 points... but we'll see.

    Go Clones!

    I just don't think that you can get bent out of shape over this one. As a fan I am confident ISU will win. I will even go so far as to say it will be a multiple score game. If we do lose this one, I think that it is not due to lack of skill/coaching/time to prepare. There really is not a reason we should lose.

    I agree 100% with that last line.

    Of course, at the same time, I'm probably starting to sound like that Hawk fan that saw no reason not to blow us out in 2005, and said if Iowa didn't win big, there was no reason for Kirk to get on the bus back to IC.

    But we should destroy them.

    Re: We will have our hands full Thursday

    I have no problem with people thinking it will be a win. I think its just ridiculous to assume that we'll win easily just because they're in the MAC. They're a good team, and they have the tools to take advantage of where we're weak, and they return a solid core of players.

    I think we'll need to play very well to win the game. If we do win by 2 scores or more, especially if we hold them to 14 or less, I think it bodes very well for the season.

    On the other hand if we lose a close one, I don't believe that it ends our bowl hopes.
