    Cyclones score first, miss the extra point and it's all downhill from there.

    I'm less worried about wins and losses at this point and more concerned with everyone just showing some signs of improvement. Step 1 - Don't be an embarrassing imitation of a college football program this Saturday. At least be competive.

    I was down on TCU coming into the season anyways, but I think this will be a evenly matched game. If Wimberly is back and the line gives either QB more than 2 seconds to develop a play, a win here is in sight :yes:

    25-17 TCU, our defense runs into the wrong end zone on a fumble recovery to give TCU a safety instead of the game winning TD with 3 minutes left in the 4th.

    In all seriousness though I feel that we will lose by 7 + or - 3, with neither team scoring above 30, this will be a dogfight and from what we have seen so far, the team just hasn't been good enough to pull out those tough, scrappy games. I really want to say ISU will win but they need to prove me wrong first

    I must have missed it on my phone. Thanks. I see it now that I'm back at my desk/computer.

    As CW said TCU has had a relatively strong D throughout the season its just that their offense is/was bad.

    I dont see how ISU offense in its current state can score more than 7-14 pts. Seems like ISU is every teams "positive momentum" game.

    28-10 TCU with a late garbage TD by ISU

    Think this will be the week where we see the offense start pulling it together. Not ALL together, just enough to finally get a win. 31-23 Iowa State.

    If we end up with over 30 points that will be putting it ALL together plus some. I don't really know how anyone can expect us to get over 10 points against a defense ranking as high as theirs. Hopefully we can benefit from some fluky plays due to the wind.

    I still care. I don't care if it's the last game of the season and we still only have one win going into that game, I'll still care. I will always care, and will always cheer on my Cyclones, always. Loyal Son, forever true.

    17-9 TCU in a game that makes me so angry I:

    1. Stomp Around
    2. Yell at the TV
    3. Curse the Offense and the day it was created
    4. Resolve myself to not care
    5. Still care
    6. Drink more
    7. After game is over feel sadness.
    8. See you for the next game.

    Defense provides a safety, a fumble recovery for a TD and a blocked fieldgoal return for a TD. Offense brings an onside recovery that turns into a TD to the table. Still lose 35-23.

    I feel good about this one, maybe because it sounds like we have a chance. Let's hope for the best.

    Come on now, if you really didn't care, you wouldn't be here. Apathy is the last thing this fan base needs now

    The Froggies win an ugly 14-10 game on a late 4th quarter TD. All Cyclone Nation will bemoan "Would-a, could-a, should-a"!

    That was the most depressing preview I've read in a long time. Feel sorry for you CW.
