    Post here if you thought Indiana was pretty good, better than ISU

    In an earlier thread several posters were arguing with me that Indiana would beat ISU.

    Indiana that has the worst schedule in the nation. Indiana that is ranked well below 100 in every computer model. Indiana that is 0-3 against any team that is not horrible.

    They got blasted by Illinois today. They've beaten NOBODY.

    We've beat Texas, Texas Tech, and a 6-2 Northern Illinois team, our losses are all to top 30 BCS teams. Northern Iowa is ranked above all 4 of Indiana's wins. We're going to be ranked around 35 in computer polls that don't count margin of victory, around 45 in those that do, Indiana is going to be worse than 100 in most of them.

    Just wondering if any of you had the gonads to man up and admit how irrational, unfounded and pessimistic that idiocy was.

    Well, count me as one of those that NEVER thought Indiana was better than ISU...

    I have an annoying coworker that's an Indiana alum and has been lovin' ISU's past two weeks of beatdowns... Any help from anyone for showing this jerkoff stats/rankings definitively showing how terrible Indiana is? Thanks in advance :)


    "I think that people are responding to someone standing up and saying this is what we want to do and let's not be afraid to go for it,'' Pollard said. "I think Iowa State has a very conservative, modest background. We never pound our chest and say `Let's do it.' It's OK to set a goal. You can't do it if you don't say what you want to do. You should be proud of it.''

    I doubt if the two ISU "fans" (I suspect they are secret Hawk trolls) show up in this post after ISU beat Texas and Indiana got rolled by Illinois.

    I can't find the thread, but they were stating Indiana was pretty good and we suck. General thread about how godly the Big Ten is this year 1-10 with the exception of Minn. It was altogether completely irrational, I mean we were 7-6 last year and beat Tech this year... yet we're worse than one of the worst BCS teams in the nation? BS before we beat Texas and especially BS after.

    I showed them how Indiana's 4 wins came against teams ranked something like 130, 177, 201, 211 in Sagarin (sure those aren't exact but not looking them up again). Northern Iowa is ranked above all their wins. We were 55 in Sagarin to Indiana's 109, I'm sure that gap will widen in the new rankings on USA Today tomorrow.

    Who in h*ll would say that Indiana is better than I-State?!?!?! (Other than hawk fans). No sports fan that knows anything about college football would say that....again, other than hawk fans.

    Half the teams in the Big Ten are not very good this year.

    But their Big Ten teams, which means they are the greatest **** ever.

    No Iowa or Big 10 fan will ever admit that Illinois is equal to a Texas Tech. Or a KSU is equal to a Northwestern. Or KU is equal to Minnesota. Its all just God's chosen few this and Big 10 Network that and "oh look, 1999 Co-champions for life!!!"

    ISU would beat Indiana by 10.
