    Never as bad as it seems.

    Let me be the first to say it's never as bad as it seems.

    I know I gagged a little just saying that.

    Re: Never as bad as it seems.

    KU from week 1 to week 2 would be good evidence of that. Today was miserable, but so was the Iowa game last year and we still won 7 games. We won't play many (maybe any) teams better than Iowa this year.

    It's never as bad as it seems and it is never as good as it seems.

    That being said, it does seem pretty bad right now.

    not to mention it is only a football game; its not like it is a soccer game or something; have fun being a fan; dont take it too seriously; go grab some nachos.

    Re: Never as bad as it seems.

    While I agree it's not the end of the season. It's totally embarrassing and an un-Proud moment. It is important for us to be competitive against are arch-rival. If you don't think this is big for recruiting, ask Dan Mac what kind of instate talent he was beating Iowa for when we were on par with them.

    Re: Never as bad as it seems.

    Just one game and Iowa is going to do this to alot of teams this year. Undermanned on defense and our offense never had the ball long enough to make a difference in the first half. Real season starts next week in a perfectly winnable game.

    Re: Never as bad as it seems.

    Sometimes your flush and sometimes your bust. When you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, it feels like you'll never be up again, but life goes on.

    Re: Never as bad as it seems.

    Well, its actually probably a bit worse than it seems. I'm worried about every game we play for the rest of the season (or more worried...)
