this seems like a trap game to me...
hopefully i'm wrong.
Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice? Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
their fans might not be fired up, but after an embarrassing loss, I bet those players come out fired up.. not wanting to be embarrassed on national tv at home being one reason. That combined with any kind of let down from us, this could be a tough one.. I bet we get their best shot
Our kids don't seem like the ones that will have an emotional letdown. There was a certain confidence with our offense the entire Iowa game. You just had the feeling that we could move the ball consistently, and I don't think it had to do with Iowa having a soft defense.
We have quite a few weapons on offense and our defense is good and only going to get better if we can stay healthy. I'm not generally bold with my predictions, but I'm thinking ISU takes control of this game. I bet our guys come out very focused.
Looks like they are very stout on Defense. Ranked 10th in total D and 22nd in scoring D. Also they're HC is a former NFL Defensive coach. On offense they seem to be a running team. Don't know if that is by design or necessity since their passing O is ranked 97th.
I forsee this being a grind it out game for us. They will want to limit our possesions so they will try to ram it down our throats with the run and use up the clock with a mix of play action pass. Sound familiar?
I'm more concerned with our penchant to TO the ball and costly penalties. If this is a clock chewing game then those mistakes can make it close and as we seen with UNI give a team enough chances they'll capitalize on them.
I feel if we clean it up we'll win but it won't be easy. I posted here already I'm absolutely terrified that we'll come out flat like we did for UNI due to it being a short week, on the road, and coming off an emotional and physically draining game.
