    Gut Wrenching

    What a game you guys played today! I know you don't believe it or don't care but you had more than just ISU fans pulling for you to win today. I stuck around the Front Row after the Iowa game and there was a good 40-50 people that hung around and watched your game, and all but a small handful of those were cheering for you guys to win, including myself. I kind of lost hope there when you guys went down 14 points but when your O drove down for 7 and then a quick special teams play gets you another 7 it was unreal.

    As for the final play, it was a great call, and the play was there. Unfortunately the execution left a little more to be desired, but hey, thats a call that makes a coach look like a genius when it works and like a fool when it doesn't. However, in this case, even though it didn't work Rhoads still looked like a genius making that call.

    Anyway, there are still two games ahead of you, and bowl eligibility is on the line. Colorado just lost to a horrid Kansas team, and if you play Mizzou at home like you just played Nebby there is a good chance of taking that too. Here's to two more wins! Go get 'em!


    Watch it man there's a beverage here!

    Thanks. Good to know there's good Iowa-folk out there still.

    I think ISU wins out. I really do.

    Kind of wish all Iowa and ISU fans could pull for each other when they are not playing each other.
