Saturday's win over KU was the kind of game previous Cyclone teams would have lost. This crew seems to have a good head on its shoulders, and doesn't go into the fetal position at the first sign of trouble. The third quarter was what we expected the first quarter to be like, but at least they got it done and kept KU at bay the rest of the way.
That said, KU gave ISU lots of help. Turner Gill was a complete chicken s**t for not running a couple of plays at the end of the first half, and his playing-not-to-lose made ISU's second half work a bit easier. That's what you get with Rookies. He'd better be a recruiting monster or his tenure in Lawrence won't be pretty.
Thoughts on the final Nebraska game later.
