    Encouraging, when it's assessed that way.

    Statistically irrelevant, maybe, but who knows?

    And ISU probably should've won 31-3.

    ISU should have had at least 2 more TD's. NIU also should have had at least 2 more FGs.


    WE ARE IOWA STATE

    It means nothing, you can't make comparisons like this. Different teams different years.

    The score really should have been 44-9.

    Come on! We are already out of other things to talk about and can't start talking about Iowa until Sunday. \

    What was the temperature during those games?


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Yup. Nice to walk out with a good win, but feeling like it should have been worse. Something the coaches can use, especially because we can't make stupid mistakes offensively against next week's defense.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I can't, and yet I just did. I must be magic!

    The reason I bring it up is because NIU fans expected (and based on their experience from the last seven years, not unwisely) a much closer game, and they know their team better than I do.

    This demonstrates that the NIU program has consistently competed well (except for the blowout vs. Ohio State, who was #1 at the time) over the past 8 years. Their fans expected to be in this game, and were shocked by the end of the first half. That historically decent football team never quit, and still got thrashed.
