    I think we are going to kick their asses and then assault their band.

    Notre Dame can cry all they want but they're not a full participant in P5 college football so when they don't get locked into a conference spot they can blame themselves.

    Virginia is going to the Cap One to face Florida, correct? Well, there you go ND...play in the ACC (as a full member), play in it's CCG, lose and play Florida. Sexy enough? Otherwise STFU.

    They could have played one of those teams again this year if they hadn't pissed the bed in their 2 loses.

    We could be playing in the sugar bowl had we not pissed the bed on special teams and gotten screwed in Norman. But yet, he we are...

    Saw an article that Kelly said he knows Heacock very well, which means he knows his defensive prowess. Would guess he also knows how many NFL teams made the trek to Ames earlier this year to get a grasp of our defensive philosophies. No, he will not take this game lightly...

    This is how they view our team. he does have a point.
    This isn't meant to be a shot at you, but I always hate the "they're x points away from being x-x." argument.

    Yeah, they were 4 points from being 10-2. They were also 5 points away from being 5-7, including a loss against FCS Northern Iowa.

    The Kansas game was also closer than the score showed, as it was back and forth for most of the game and ISU scored a TD with a minute left to increase their lead to 10.

    Also turns out that the Big XII kind of sucks. Oklahoma is the best team in the conference and they are going to get absolutely curbstomped by LSU. I mean, it wouldn't surprise me if LSU won by 35 or more and hung 50+ on them.

    Iowa State beat exactly ONE team with a winning record (FBS teams at least), that being Texas. So they played 5 teams with winning records and went 1-4.

    Oh no doubt, I definitely agree with everything you have to say. I'm more so just justifying how a 10-2 Notre Dame team fell to a less than satisfactory bowl for them. IF Notre Dame was in the ACC they would probably be playing Florida in the Orange Bowl and the Camping World Bowl would be slotted with Virginia.

    And with the argument some fans like to make about being "x amount of points away from being x-x", I just don't think that's necessarily fair. You have to close out and win those games. We had more than enough opportunities to win Iowa, Baylor, and Oklahoma..... I guess I just think the argument shows Iowa State is almost there.

    They’re upset? How about me? I wanted ND in their prime. Instead we get watered down, washed up ND clinging to their past. It won’t be like beating 1940’s ND. Oh well. Have to play them now.

    We can win or we can lose but I don't care what their opinion is, at all.

    I don't give a **** what their fans think.

    I just want to see a good game with ISU looking prepared for 4 quarters, and having a chance late at minimum.

    Why don't we wait to find out before deciding this based on "the eye test." LSU curb stomped Georgia so I'm not sure it will prove much about conferences if it happens.

    Unfortunately for us the coaches and players don’t think this way though. I think we win but it won’t be a cake walk

    That's good because this ISU team hates cake walks, so much so that they won't even LET an opponent be one.

    If you’re playing at this level, you’re talented and love the game and you want to win so I have a hard time believing a well coached team wouldn’t care about playing to win and just not give a crap after a season of working your ass off. I do think the team (ND) could have the attitude that they’re better and assume a win and play for themselves assuming they can have fun kicking their opponent’s ass like it’s a given and will just happen. If Iowa State plays as a team with discipline, and goes to work, then that could dictate the outcome.

    If you want "more respect"...then I suggest we er ISU football start beating the TOE ...like 15 years in a row. I dont think that the natl media will ever see ISU as a viable power five "power team" unless we start beating teams Like KSU..Baylor...and of course OU and Texas on a regular basis.....Go Cyclones BEAT the bluest of the bluebloods Notre Dame...

    We don't win in cake walks. Anyone who thinks we will is on drugs. Anything can happen but to predict it is insane. We barely beat KU at home.

    Fairly true. We didn't beat anybody this year. Beating UND would be a nice feather and momentum.
