Every game in the Big 12 is a tough game.
Big game Saturday. The guys need to find a way to win and get a W on the road. What did Fred say before? "Boys win at home, men win on the road."
Go Get em ISU-
I don't want to be that guy but OU is only one spot behind us in the Big XII and its on the road so of course its going to be a touch game. I love the way we are playing right now though so I think we get the W.
Consider ISU's record at those two venues, in both good and mediocre seasons, sometimes vs. less-than-great OU/OSU teams ... and this time it's back-to-back games.
Even so, getting them both would be semi-sweet. It pretty much would leave zero potential bad road losses the rest of the way.
0-2 wouldn't be a killer, but definitely a step back from recent momentum.
If Fred's talk with Allen carries over and hes actually clicking for the rest of the season, we can beat just about anyone... especially OU. If Allen drives to the hoop instead of throwing up awful shots and only shoots the three when its open for him, we are a very scary team. I feel like I don't have to mention the other guys, because we know what we have there.
I see anywhere from 2 wins to 7, and odds at 4 IF we play up to potential.Really need 5 to be comfortable,but all these lower tier teams are going to be very hungry to move up,and road wins are very hard to come by. Beating BU at Hilton is a very big key.I've seen people predicting a sweep of them but I'm not sure that's realistic. MU and KSU on the road are killers.OSU is hard to beat at GIA no matter what the record,as is OU.
This will be a tough game, OU plays very hard and well for the talent they have plus its on the road. I will be very happy if we come out with the W
