    So who had the better season: ISU or Iowa?

    Interesting conversation on Hawkeye Nation. But who had the better season? I would say ISU, they overcame expectations where Iowa couldnt live up to them once again. ISU beat Texas on the road and TTU at home, while Iowa beat a miserable Michigan team and strange team in MSU. I went to the game Saturday with my father-in-law and I thought ISU had team speed issues until I watched Iowa, we have more speed at linebacker than they may have in the secondary. They are slow and at times poorly coached, which I never see out of ISU (minus the CU game). Im going to say right now I think ISU wins next season in Ames going away.

    bowl vs no bowl. Regardless of expectations, they had a better season. Plus they beat us.

    7-5 + bowl > 5-7


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Despite not meeting their lofty expectations, Iowa still gets to keep playing somewhere, probably in Florida in January.

    Bowl game + kicking our butts = Iowa had a better season

    The bolded part is why Iowa fans hate ISU fans. Back to back stompings from the Hawks, and here we have someone picking ISU to blow out Iowa next year, based on ...... ??????

    Re: So who had the better season: ISU or Iowa?

    Who cares? I don't feel compelled in anyway to compare the seasons of Iowa State and Iowa. After the week that we play Iowa I pretty much lose all interest in them unless they have a meltdown like they did this year. In this case I get a few laughs, get a chance to give the hok fans I know some crap about it, and then they go back to being another team that I don't pay attention to.

    Re: So who had the better season: ISU or Iowa?

    They had both the better season and the more dispappointing season. To me the biggest bummer for Hawk fans would have to be that their defense that was so highly regarded, played awful down the stretch in nearly all of their losses. NW,OSU,Wisky and Minny all had long drives in the 4th qtrs that won them the game. Even against Arizona they fought back only to give up a long methodical drive to lose the game. For a team built on their defense thats got to really sting.

    Iowa had a better season.

    If you had asked who had a more disappointing season, the answer again is Iowa

    This. Iowa is going bowling, we are not. They also totally emberassed us at Kinnick this year.

    Now, if we had pulled out any of the K-State, Nebraska, Colorado, or Mizzu games and finished 6-6 with a bowl game ahead, then I'd say we had the better season. But since we didn't, I have to go with Iowa on this one.

    1) Duke's B-Ball team might be able to beat its football team in football...
    2) Minnesota and Colorado appear to be similar teams in similar situations. I wouldn't throw stones in that glass house.

    To echo what everyone else has said, Iowa has had the better season and the more disappointing one.
