    This is what recruiting Texas has done to our program.

    Pretty much sums it up. No wonder the Hawks are so scared of this game, and want to get rid of it.

    I still maintain it's not just recruiting Texas that has made the difference. It's the revenue sharing, TV money, etc. that led to facilities upgrades as much or more than anything else. In the 80's and early 90's almost none of our games were on TV, there was very little revenue sharing and we literally had glorified high school facilities.

    It was Danny Mac and a change in the football culture, additional resources, along with Iowa falling apart in 98-01, that helped turn this thing around. Recruiting texas helped, but it was just a part of this.

    I think they had 19 or 20 consecutive "non-winning" seasons. They had a season with a like # of wins and losses in that mix somewhere. Anyway, that stretch of futility was a D1 record as I recall. Don't know if it's since been surpassed...

    That was one of the best days ever--I had so many Iowa fans from HS talking so much smack before that game that were utterly silent afterwards. It was glorious.

    They were utterly silent during as well.


    True story. I was so drunk going into that game that my wife and I ended up in the wrong section. We were right in the middle of the Hawkeye visitors section. I was so drunk that I vomited on my way into the stadium. Luckily the ticket taker let me in.

    Well, I was drunk, loud, and obnoxious. The visiting Hawks around me were just dumbfounded. My wife had to shut me up before I got into a fight.

    Good times.

    Well, at the time Iowa had the longest streak I'm guessing, so there's that.

    although, during iowa's losing streak, they did have 19 in a row, which was longest in the nation at the time. so says wiki anyway.

    I remember a church on Lincoln Way had this posted on their outside bulletin board the next day:

    Good triumphs over evil.
    23-3


    Wish I would have taken a picture.
