    I'm sick of all of this McCarney-esque respect talk toward NIU

    This is a middle of the pack MAC team. I don't care how close their losses were last year or who they've got returning. If we're going to become a respectable BCS football team, these are the games we've got to win going away. All four quarters should be domination on our part. I'm sick of people saying "Oh, they're a good team, I could see us losing". B.S. This is the cancer we've got to cut out. If we lose this game, we won't win more than two games this year, because other than UNI, we don't have a more winnable game on our schedule than this.

    Stop being wishy-washy pansies. It's time to man up or stamp our ticket into the Sun Belt conference.

    They are a good team, but we have no business losing to them. I hope we punish them tomorrow

    I can respect you and still expect to win by no less than three touchdowns, though.

    We'll hit "em coming off of the bus! I don't think that we'll take anything for granted. We'll take care of business and beat them handily.

    We're gonna go inside, we're gonna go outside, inside and outside. We're gonna get 'em on the run, boys, and once we get 'em on the run, we're gonna keep 'em on the run. And then we're gonna go go go go go go and we're not gonna stop 'til we get across that goal line. This is a team they say is... is good. Well, I think we're better than them. They can't lick us, so what do you say, men?

    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    Could not agree more...in the words of Larry Munson, let's "step on their face with a hobnail boot."

    Oddsmakers basically see this as a toss-up. there have been no big shifts in the money so those that study these things see this as a tough game. While we all want to be that dominating team, we were just a 7 win team last year with a weaker (in some respects) defense than last. Parity exists at our level of football now.

    Those that study these things would know that the line has moved from -3 to -5 in three days, which means money has been pouring in on Iowa State.

    I still hope we're no where close to the line, whether it's -3 or -5. I'm hoping we win by at least a couple touchdowns.
