I want to see ISU come out and play like a team who got knocked to the mat twice, gets up, and carries forward like there is nothing left to play for except the opportunity to play in (and win) the conference championship game.

When expectations are stratospherically high an early season loss can resound into the next game, at best, or ruin and entire season, at worst. Obviously ISU has reorganized with a great win over the No. 8 Pokes. But have we seen their ceiling yet?

How the Cyclones play on Saturday will say a lot about how the season turns out.

Trap style game but by no means against a cupcake.

24-17.
I expect to be down by 10 at half.

Now saying 90%
Between a tenth and a quarter inch of rain total. So just spitting. Nothing terrible. Light winds. I think the passing game will be fine. Of course, we need something to fret about, it's what we live for...

In general I'm nervous on this game. the last game was a huge win but I imagine was incredibly physically, mentally and emotionally draining. And with it being a little bit of a trap game with Texas next week... IDK.

I know the last few years I feel like we've matched up well with West Virginia... I just have a little bit of anxiety. I almost want to call it a push but I think we'll win.... but I also am thinking its going to be heart attack causing, blood pressure rising close.

I hope like heck I am wrong and we win going away.

A lot of talk about Morgantown being a tough place to play, which is true because their fans are great. But I want to take a left turn and speak a bit about their stadium.

This stadium is literally JTS sister stadium because it was designed by the same people. What's up with the all the space behind the goal post in the south end zone with the seats that just stop halfway down the lower bowl?

Also, the addition in the North endzone looks like a weird afterthought from a different stadium. I actually like our press box better than theirs, which is probably the only time I can say that. It looks like an observation perch for a prison or something.

They don’t have prisons in West Virginia though, they just shoot ‘em.

Or just take them into good ole Appalachia and are never seen from again. I kid, I kid. I have relatives from West Virginia and its beautiful country.

It's Brocktober. It's going to be fine. ISU will come out of there with a win. I may not be like last year's cakewalk, but a win is a win.

These WVUers are impressed with our team. Leveled headed talk in the first half here:

Holy smokes, that’s a fun listen. You would almost think they are prepping to play Alabama. We’ve come a LONG way, boys.

“Their (ISU) defense basically wears spanks, it looks lighter than it actually is.”

Ugly sister...The ISU upgrades are FOR Cyclones BY Cyclones. ISU Engineering / Architecture >>>>> whatever WVU has.

Probably taking off in the next couple of hours. Charter from DSM to PIT doesn't show up in easy flight searches though...

Any CF'ers really good at finding this kind of thing?
Looks like they're flying out to Clarksburg, not Pittsburgh.
