    Looks serious enough to keep him out of the game against us... TT imo is a must win if we want any chance of going to a bowl.

    Hate to see a player for any team go down. I'd rather our program just focuses on winning a game right now. And putting themselves in a position where questionable officiating won't determine the outcome.

    Like I said in anither thread. Davis Webb is a legit QB, and will get very important reps in oractice, and hes had gametime this season, too.

    He will be ready to go.

    Although if Brewer isnt ready to back Webb up next week, and if Webb goes down, then Tech will be in serious trouble.


    Tech right now is facing what OSU faced last season with their QB's.

    Tech is the onky team in the conference that can legitimately go 3 deep at QB.

    Tech has scored almost as many points since Mayfield went out, as they did when he was in. Their backup is pretty legit.

    Webb was an Elite 11 QB, and really just needs reps as the starter.

    Now, it seems, he will get them.

    Mayfield just makes better decisions, and thats why he was the starter, but Webb has everything else you would want in a QB.

    I am very pleased with the progress of this team in the last couple weeks. But face reality, there is zero chance of a bowl.

    Kansas is not good. Especially when they've lost all interest in the game, being down 30+ points.

    Kansas would not even be ranked in FCS, worst team I can remember and the coaching is just laughable.

    I really don't see the TT game going very well for us.

    Does it matter who the QB for TTU is? This Mayfield kid would be #3 QB at best on this Iowa State team. He is a walk-on. Texas Tech is a system offense, you plug just about anyone in at QB, and they're gonna light it up. This Mayfield kid is living proof of it. It is also why none of their QB's last very long in the NFL...their weaknesses become exposed once they are out of the "system"

    It seems as if ISU's biggest problem against Tech will not who will be Tech's QB, but how much will ISU be able to move the ball against Tech.

    Tech will score...how much will ISU on the road?

    I would expect the line to be somewhere around Tech -20.

    20 points? I'll be surprised if it's more than 10.

    You sound like a fan of a team who just whipped up on Kansas. I can't blame you, but you may need to reevaluate a bit. The line will be under 10. Texas was favored by 7.5 and we whipped them up and down the field. They needed a hail mary and 5 PI calls to only miss the cover by 6.5 points.

    And ISU has played well against ranked teams on the road recently, see TCU last year and Texas Tech the year before.

    I think it'll be more than 10. Home field is usually around 3, and they will pick Tech to win by at least 1 td.

    An unbeaten, ranked team at home hosting a 1-3 team who lost to a FCS team..... sounds like a recipe for a pretty big line.

    It also happens to sound like the recipe for a Paul Rhoads upset. I enjoyed that graphic Thurs night about only 4 teams that have beaten a ranked team on the road in each of the last 3 seasons (ISU, Bama, Oregon, tOSU?)
