    I think ISU is going to surprise some people and cover. I saw enough yesterday to think ISU is better than the results so far have indicated. At some point it's got to come together. ISU plays its best game up to this point and cruises something like 38-13 to head into conference play on a high note and give the fans a little confidence booster.

    LA-Monroe isn't even a FCS school, so I don't know how you figure they are "rated higher than UNI"

    I can see there isn't anymore room on the ledge so I will stay off of it, and I predict a win of 31-6

    That is a crazy line! I do not gamble, but I do follow football nationally, I expect Iowa State to win, but I'm fairly certain ULM + 20.5 is easy money. Let's Go State! Prove me wrong! :)

    Looking at the forecast, you might be on to something.

    We should win this game. However, if we would have beat Iowa, we would lose this game. That is just what we do and we are damn good at it. Pull this big win, then lose the next week to nobody State. However, with the Iowa loss we should be able to win this.

    This is your reaction to taking ULM and the points? Do you not understand what that means?

    I'd just like to see the team make 3 or fewer critical boneheaded mistakes this game. They've been killing themselves so far, time to clean it up. Win the turnover battle and win in regulation.

    UNI is better. ULM is 5 spots higher is Sagarin simply on the difference of playing Florida State versus playing Southern Utah.

    ISU rolls. 35-10.

    This offense clearly can put a few plays together to suggest they could put up a number like 38, but there's no evidence to say they won't kill most of those drives via penalties or other mistakes, which they can't do to be scoring 5+ touchdowns.

    I predict the tailgating lots will look like a ghost town compared to last week 3 hours before the game. I am salty that last Saturday was such a **** show. #Justanothergame

    Keep your eyes open... More than a few threatening to jump so you might have a table sooner rather than later.

    The difference in ULM and UNI would have to be vast to lead to that score.
    Presuming we get ahead, we’re going to shorten the game. It’s likely going to take defensive TDs to cover imo.

    We’re not going to play ULM like they’re OU. They’re is some merit to practicing what you need to do in those games now, but hopefully it’s after we get a cushion rather than pillow fighting our way to a one possession game in which a relatively small number of mistakes are fatal.
