KSU had some significant injuries against TCU and I'm not sure Klein is 100% yet after being dinged up against OSU. If they are healthy, they win out. If not, watch out.
ND should lose to USC.
Oregon will run the table I think.
I'm sorry, but I just can't get on the good for KState bandwagon. I don't think KSU winning a national title would be good for ISU. Up until now, I've felt pretty confident that KSU would fall back into the bottom of the league after Snyder leaves. Looking at how our meat grinder of a season has gone, we need a few more teams that we can look at and pencil in a W for us to take the next step, and KSU could easily be one of them. If KSU actually wins a national title and produces a Heisman winner as Bill walks out the door, it would seem much easier for them to keep their momentum up, and that is a bad thing for ISU.
Hook 'em horns!
my guess is a k-state/nd final. ducks are also beat up and have a tougher schedule than state or the irish. and it would be more fun to play notre dame.
good luck v. the squawks. don't let them break their streak, please. emaw.
If we had beat KSU, it would have been our big one of the year. All we needed was 95 yard pass play to Lenz or Tiller or West or Bundrage or Horne or Bruns. Of course, we failed in that department.
I'd like to see Kstate dominate Alabama. Because you know the SEC homers are going to be saying "well we would have beaten both of those teams" if they play someone else.
1) I think this gives us (our fans, at least) hope that our program can do the same. They don't get 5 star talent, neither do we. They do more with less talent than anyone in the country, which is what we strive to do. Collin Klein was a lightly-recruited 3 star. Collin Klein - Yahoo! Sports
2) If you just want to get to 9 wins by beating cupcake teams, then let's just go to the WAC or something. When we get to 9 wins, I want it to mean something. Having a great conference with very tough teams ensures that it would.
Is there anyone out there that thinks a healthy Alabama team would lose their bowl game? I say no chance. Now, if they are awarded a chance at the BCS title, that is the question.
