    Early on this week, Hawkeye fans that I see on a regular basis were actually quite decent to be around for once in the week leading up to this game. Most thought ISU would probably win the game, and felt ISU was just a better team than Iowa this year.

    But as the week has wore on, they have resorted back to being the same old Hawk fans that are super cocky and arrogant again. It's as if they've now forgotten what the two teams did last Saturday. And I even see it amongst some of the media members over here on the eastern side of the state too. The CR Gazette's Marc Morehouse on Monday was predicting an ISU win. Now I wake up this morning and see in the paper that he's now predicting an Iowa win.

    It's nothing shocking whatsoever, but it just irritates the hell out of me. I would love to just win this game, no matter how we do it, but as this week has gone on, now I want to just lay a beatdown on these guys. I don't want just a one point win where all I will hear next week is how we lucked out. I want a dominating and convincing win..... something like 41-10.

    Sure, I will take any win, but I really believe that this year we are the better team. Outside of having a senior QB, I think Iowa is in a rebuilding year this year, and I think ISU is more experienced. If we play like we are capable of, I don't think a good beating is out of the question. But more than likely we will be in for the battle of our lives again since we don't usually play very well in IC.

    I just want to shut these Hawks up bad!

    This is why I hope for a Hawkeye beatdown every day of every week of every year in every sport.

    Naw, I would rather see a heart stopping ending where the Cyclones barely eek it out at the end. You know type of ending that makes you feel like you might have a heart attack due to so much excite and anxiety. It wouldn't be a true Cyclone victory if that wasn't the case.

    I hate it when fans think they're going to win.:skeptical:

    I swear some of you look for **** to get ****** about. In a week where most of the media I've seen is picking ISU to win @Iowa, we've got posters on here ******** about Tom Kakert and Marc Morehouse. God forbid someone dare say Iowa will win a game they're favored in.

    I keep hoping for an earthquake to go right through Iowa City that would open a great big hole and swallow the whole thing, SUI and their village.

    Any sources you can point to that will back up your claim about media members picking ISU over iowa?

    Clark is right here...most are picking ISU and it makes me nervous as heck. We should all be happy with a W of any type. I highly doubt it will be easy today.

    Keith Murphy for one. Dave Zabolinski (sp?) from Ch 5. Steve Deace, just about all of Murph & Andy's regular guests, The Des Moines Register. Those are just the ones I know about.

    It makes me nervous as heck too. I hate it. I'd almost rather go into the game as a 14+ pt underdog. A lot of Cyclone fans are kinda optimistic this week, including me, and it scares me to death.

    The expectations game is a hell of a thing. Living in Iowa City (and going to Iowa), I didn't hear much chatter this week about the game. Those I talked to said many of the things we say. ISU looked better in week 1. They were worried about the game and glad that it was at Kinnick. The only real difference is that they thought Iowa would be able to pull it out.

    I can see Iowa State winning this game by two to three touchdowns. Honestly - but that doesn't strike me as very likely. If Iowa State gets out to an early lead, I think it could be a blowout. However, in true ISU fashion, I think we get down early and eek out a victory.

    I think the thing to keep in mind is the 5% of each fanbase. There is a small portion of each fan base that can make this game/week unbearable. Unfortunately for us, many of those that are unbearable Hawkeyes have access to the media (or are the media). I'll be tailgating today in the belly of the beast today (right next to Carver) decked out in Iowa State gear. I'll let you know how it goes.

    The good thing about this rivalry is that it has two teams that will absolutely lay everything out on the field. It will be a close game simply because of that fact. I'm looking forward to a great football game. But, when all is said and done, I'm looking forward to a Cyclone victory!

    We owe Iowa a lot of 57 - 3 beat downs. How much sweeter would it be to do it at their place?

    Go State
