    So, after the emotional revenge win against Texas on Tuesday, should we be concerned about a letdown at TCU?

    No closer than the game was at Hilton. Sounds like a lot of Cyclone fans will be down there for that one.

    Since they have 4 days in between the next two games, there is not room for a trap.

    There is no Big 12 road game that you can overlook. It isn't a trap, but it isn't a blow-off either.

    Not a blow out, a lot closer to a trap game.

    You guys are forgetting who this team is just because we handled Texas. We have yet to blow a team out, and we always seem to lose focus and let teams hang in there. We win by 5.

    Yah, every game against an inferior team is a trap game you donkey.

    And btw, there is no such thing as a trap game. You either are a great team and take care of business, or you are a sketchy team and give away the easy games.

    Nothing is more dangerous then a team with nothing to lose. Not saying we do, but we need to be ready to play.

    Wow, a lot of confidence in this thread.
    We only beat them by a few points at home this year and we had one of our players go off for 48 pts.
    I expect a very hard fought game down there. It will be back and forth before we finally pull away late in the 2nd half.

    Clones win, 98-17.

    Because I feel like being that randomly pessimistic guy after a win, I think we lose. Not only that, Ejim dislocates his should while dunking, then breaking it falling off the rim. Hogue tears his ACL while failing around in mid air with a rebound. Kane runs into a camera man's camera head first and concusses himself. Naz and Thomas read CF and choose not to show up base on the negativity they read. Percy doesn't pass it. Custer and McKay de-commit. SDW misses every shot. Edozie forgets how to do anything but block shots and bank free throws. Morris forgets that there is a game and goes home, and Georges starts writing fan mail to Nerlens Noel saying he deeply wishes he could have played at least one high school game with a great shot blocker like Noel and doesn't remember to leave the hotel room. Tyler Ellermen gets bored and randomly runs off the bench, throws the ball into the stands, flips off the camera and leaves. Hoiberg goes to the NBA and we hire Scott Drew as our new head coach.
