Even though I have this as a NO PLAY. Here are some reasons why Iowa St. can win this game

1) They have the better coach. Paul Rhodes at Iowa St. has done more with less in the last 4 years. Mack Brown pressure will carried with him to the sideline the whole year. He just isnt a good coach anymore. 

2) Thursday night ESPN home dog (self explanatory)

3) Chase McCoy at QB makes them a little bit more predictable. Ash has converted so many 1st downs with his scramble ability. McCoy just doesnt have the awareness IMO

4) Iowa St players along with everyone that tunes into ESPN had to hear that Texas owns them. If u think that doesnt help the DOG ur wrong. 

5) Iowa St had a bye week to game plan. Paul Rhodes again is a great coach for situations like this (ie Oklahoma St. 2011, that was a Friday night ESPN game in Ames, following an Iowa St bye)

6)The Iowa St WR/TE play, Keep your eyes on WR #9 Quenton Bundrage and TE #11 E.J. Bibbs both are big and physical with great hands. 

7)Texas run defense, even though they held KState to 115 on the ground. KState is having issues running the ball against decent teams (149 vs ULL and 41 vs NDSU)

8) Mack Brown Pressure will be felt all around tonight, from the sidelines, locker room, hotel room, the stadium, the press box, ALL EYES WILL BE ON MACK BROWN

Texas has had two weeks to prepare...with the way that OU has spanked Texas the last two seasons, Texas must go into that game with momentum.   Texas knows that if it loses to a bad Iowa St team or barely covers, things will look bad for OU.  Mack can't afford to let that happen.   He still believes he can save his job.   Even if he did not think he could save his job, he would be working on his legacy...Texas has owned Iowa St since it joined the Big XII (exception 2010).  

I don't see this game being close...even without Hicks and with Case McCoy at QB....Texas by 2+ TDs...

1) the entire osu community had a complete letdown when just the day before that game against ISU, their women's bball coach was killed in a plane crash. I have a lot of friends and family that are OSU alum, believe me, it impacted the players and made football a lot less meaningful that day. It was just a great spot for ISU with a much better team than they have now.

2) The OU game has not even begun getting prepped for. This is a team and coaching staff that knows they can't afford any slip ups. They aren't overlooking ISU. It being a Thursday game also gives them extra time to prepare for the following week... OU.

3) This is a great spot for Texas. They were fortunate to have a bye week coming into this game to finally get the defense completely lined out under new defensive coordinator greg robinson. losing hicks last game was enormous for the horns, but they have had extra time to prepare knowing he would be out so it shouldn't hurt them as much as it would have.

Ash is out for the game, but he is just a touch better than mccoy, mainly because Ash is mediocre at best. I'd rather see Ash in there, but this could be the game where Mack finally rolls the dice and gets Swoopes some playing time. Probably a pipe dream, but we'll see. Mack should have a nothing to lose mentality at this pt with Dodds leaving, so he might finally mix it up a bit. Either way, I expect the defense to be the unit that steps up and pulls out this victory and cover. Small wager here as I am too much of a homer to trust myself all the time on my team, but I do like this spot for them.

this is why i never bet much on my team... glad they pulled it out, but damn the defense may be helpless. Texas couldn't have asked for much more help coming into a thursday game coming off a bye week which takes away the opposing home teams advantage and also getting the extra time for greg robinson to implement his defense. really wish they would have put swoopes in at qb, but for whatever reason he seems to want to keep his redshirt so he will have him as a freshman for next season??? needs to start thinking about the season at hand while he is still the coach. no idea what he is thinking anymore.

Looks like I had this figured about right. Not real surprised. Actually, ISU should've won.
