in a couple of days. ISU fans and players are thrilled to be in the Insight bowl. Minnesota fans couldn't care less, and their team is just about as interested plus they're beat-up and losing players for other reasons. ISU, like SMU, is still adjusting to a new system albeit a year behind SMU. You could see how much progress SMU made as the season went along and especially in bowl preparation. I expect the same from ISU. The offense's timing will be much better, especially with team health at season high. Additionally, Minnesota has no offense without Decker. That is the only area where ISU could be exploited against a decent team. Fortunately, Minnesota isn't decent on offense. I originally thought ISU by 12. I'm not thinking we're looking at a 31-10 type game for the clones.
