    Is it weird that my opinion about either team hasn't changed one bit?

    Preseason I predicted it to be a loss for us. Granted, I wanted it to be closer and us to look better, but I knew this would be a tough game. I STILL think we'll go 6-6. Talent-wise, OU and Texas are the only teams we play that will be better than Iowa, and I didn't have us winning those games either.

    I predicted Iowa would go 10-2. I still think they lose to OSU and one team they shouldn't lose to.

    Did this game hurt? Absolutely. It killed my pride, but my opinions still have not changed.

    I agree with you. Iowa converted 5 3rd/4th downs in their first two drives and ISU went 3 and out both times. It put our defense that isn't very deep on the field a ton in the first half. Iowa State was going to need some breaks and turnovers to win this game and didn't get them. Iowa was clearly the better team. But it's pretty tough to really figure out how Iowa State will match up with the Big 12 North teams that will really determine whether this season is a success or not.

    This was really a big blowout, worse than last year.


    CFH HMagic bball season next year.

    I could see Iowa winning 10 or more games this year. I wouldn't be super shocked if they win them all. I don't see any holes in their team and they are definitely in the same league as OSU, OU, Boise State, Bama etc.

    I agree. I will say that I was harboring hopes of a Big XII north title (at heart I am a super-optimist), and that hope is pretty much gone, but I still believe we can make a bowl game.

    I think our biggest problem tonight was getting a stop. In Iowa's first two drives we forced a few third and longs as I recall, but we just couldn't get off the field. That wore down our defense and took our offense out of the game.

    If our defense can learn to get some stops, I still think we can be decent. But we likely won't be a conference title contender until we get a more effected defensive line.

    It doesn't change my opinion about where we could end up. It certainly exposed some serious weaknesses. Iowa is likely one of the best 2 or 3 teams that we will play this year.

    Re: Is it weird that my opinion about either team hasn't changed one bit?

    Iowa is probably going to lose a game or two that they shouldn't and we will probably win a game or two that we shouldn't.
    I agree with the OP.
    Anyone that says iowa doesn't "care" about this game is an idiot. They don't do what they did to us to other teams and they did not let up one bit.
    It took Ferentz five years to beat us. We were outplayed and outcoached much like he was when he took over the iowa program.
    Its one game! If this happens next week I will be worried, ill call this an education.

    Sorry, but I don't see us winning another game the rest of the season unless Missouri gives us a gift the last game of the season. I really hope I am wrong.

    Snyder will out coach us to another loss next week.

    How about you just log off CF now and never sign back on and spare us your bull****?

    Exactly. This game matters more to Iowa's guys and Ferentz than it does to us, in terms of the fire and intensity they bring to the matchup. It took KF a while to catch on to what this game took, but he's got a handle on it now.

    I have no doubt that CPR is going to get this ship righted, both in terms of the rivalry and this season. He'll get Iowa, and get them more than once.

    Our next couple of opponents are right there and very beatable for us. We'll improve. I don't think we win the North, but I haven't thought that yet. A bowl game, that we can do, and that keeps building the program.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Nice to see you've completely thrown out this season simply because we got pasted by a top 5 (will be) team. Should we have just given up on last year as well? Oh, that's right - you probably did...
