    #17 FSU lost by 30 at OU.

    Why is everyone so shocked that we lost so badly? I admit that I thought it'd be closer but come on, take the jerseys off of Iowa and replace them with another top 10 team and would you be so shocked we got shellacked on the road?

    Iowa is legit this season and is playing better early in the season than I can ever remember. Sure it sucks to get pounded by your rival but try being realistic about this. Clones can still have a good season.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    I totally agree, and was just thinking about posting something similar. Iowa is a legitimate top 5 team this year - everything has come together for them this year. Had this game occured in Austin or Norman, we'd all be saying "Well let's just get to next week." The tremendous douchebaggery of the Hawkeye fanbase has blinded a lot of people to the fact that we're still not that good, and this year they are very good. In the grand scheme of things, whether by 3 points or 30, it's just one loss. I still think we can find 5 more wins somewhere and get to a bowl game.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    You're right but even still how does that help us when still have to go Norman and Austin? All we've shown so far is that we don't belong on the field with teams of that quality, and the sad thing is yesterday could have been much worse. Obviously we still have 10 games left and a bowl game is not out the question but I think many people around here (not saying they were right or I'm one of those people) thougth that CPR has this program in a position to compete in games like this. But the most positive thing about this loss is that we still have a couple really nice opportunities for big wins that could turn this season around. It will be a good test for this team and coaching staff to see just how far things have come. Are we the type of team who's going to let a loss like this ruin our year or like last year can we rebound and still take something positive away.
