24 - 13 (KU 2/3 on FGs)
We are actually playing a team with a worse kicking game than ISU.
We are actually playing a team with a worse passing QB than ISU.
We are playing a team with not as good a defense as ISU.
We are playing a team that may only have 30,000 or less fans show up.
We are playing a one-dimensional, crappy team that has been spunky at home.
I like Wally to come up with a good game plan. I like ISU. But the offense has got to get its head out its *** and post some points. ISU 24 - KU 14
I havent looked up stats, but they have a worse kicking game than us, wow...
This feels like Colorado 2010. I hope I'm wrong.
Not making a prediction...
This game scares the hell outta me.
KU 36-ISU 7
I think we move the ball down the field at the end, but a holding penalty backs us up a bit. Charlie will ice our kicker, but Arceo still will knock through a 56 yarder as time expires for the Clones to escape, 73-0.
KU gets their first win. This one has worried me all season...28-10.
Holy Crap this is the most negative prediction thread that I remember all season.
ISU has been horrible on offense its no secret, I think some people are jumping off the cliff because we lost two games in a row to teams with better talent. KU is not one of those teams, they are equal to ISU at best, these are not UT and OU atheletes at KU.
The Kansas Defense is giving up the most yds per play (6.5), yep more than Baylor and more than WVU (6.2 & 6.39). KU is also 8th in the league in pts/pos allowed (2.5) ahead of only you guessed it WVU and BU (3.08 & 2.9). The data suggests that KU is the worst defense when you look at the yds they allow/play AND only slightly better at the pts they allow. This is good news for a struggling ISU. ISU seemed to do OK when playing a similarly bad BU defense.
KU offensively is scoring fewer pts/pos than ISU and is averaging a similarly low 4.9 yds/play to ISU's 4.93. Basically these two offenses are dreadful. KU has no passing game but can run fairly well. ISU is really below average at both, they dont do either well but they are more balanced than KU.
Thanks Khaal at encyclonepedia.com for the #'s.
I see absolutely no reason that ISU should not be in this game at the end. I beleive that it will be closely contested but the Homer in me expects ISU to win.
UNIGUY you are about as extreme one direction or the other as anyone, you were picking ISU to win games against some of the best teams and now that they didnt your selling on them against two of the worst in the conference.
I'm thinking ISU wins this one 28-20. Nothing like a bad team to bring out the best in a quarterback and I think Coach Rhoads will have the team fired up and being bowl eligible after beating Kansas is enough of an incentive for the coaches, team and fans to all be ready for the win.
Steele Jantz: 16-38 115 yds 0 TDs 3 INTs 1 Fumble Lost..... but he plays solid and everyone still loves him and it will be the WRs and OLs fault.
