    It's our only shot to beat these guys. I would not at all mind a cold day with some snow (no blizzard, as I'd rather not go in the ditch, I guess I have places to stay in Ames). For some reason I love the idea of getting all bundled up, partying hard for a few hours and then screaming my lungs out. We might not have a chance in hell on saturday, and it's GONNA be cold, but I'm not going to shortchange my self on the last opportunity to tailgate at the Jack until late August...

    Ice might be better and gusty 30s. Make it tough for tailgating and the ducks.

    I dunno... It's hard to find time to tailgate when you're the leader of the free world.

    Just posted another thread. I don't think you will see snow, but you will see 40-45mph wind gusts and wind chills in the single digits.

    Not gonna be fun out there for anyone.

    No ice in the forecast right now, and hopefully at all. That would make game attendance on par with the 92(?) CU game...

    After missing the legendary '92 Nebraska game, I'd better not miss this one. (Just in case):wink:

    How the heck can anyone throw more than 4 yard passes? Yep. There you go. Lots of running and bunch the line Cyclones. The poor cameraman will think they went to Alaska. Time to try out those enclodsd press boxes. I assume the wind will be out of the North. Hint hint. Santa Claus is coming to Ames, Tough Rain.

    IF we were to pull the upset this Saturday, I think you'll have a great story for the rest of your life on how you were one of the few and proud to be there that day.

    Trust me...there will be many that do not have the gonads for Saturday's weather.

    Missouri is the Show Me State. Then Iowa is the Snow Me State. Daniels will need to bring his cousin Jack to stay warm.

    My girlfriend says she still wants to go, but I'm trying to talk her out of it. It's men-weather this weekend, and despite her best intentions, I know she can't make it out there....
