    Giggles at it again

    This is so funny. He is trying to argue that ISU fans should be more angry about their season than Iowa. He says you got to ignore preseason expectations. But do we ignore all of history? Historically, Iowa has a better program. He keeps calling Iowa's season a disaster, pretty much answering your own question.

    Come on, at least our team showed some heart. Iowa showed none.

    Wow.

    Re: Giggles at it again

    Im listening too, lets see Iowa 26 seniors, players quitting on the the coaches and the team, ISU returns all but 3 starters on defense and 5 starters on offense, that can ONLY get better. There is a start.

    Re: Giggles at it again

    Taking out preseason expectations he has a point. The way this season played out in total is disappointing. There were many good things that happened but I am still let down right now. I don't think the season was a failure though. There are many things to build on and I think there was improvement from last year.

    It is a stretch to say that ISU had a more disappointing season than Iowa though, preseason expectations or not.

    Those 5 we lost on offense are HUGE losses.

    I don't really have a problem with that premise. ISU was given a huge gift by UT and TT being down, and they failed to turn it into a bowl appearance. Add to that getting shut out twice, getting bombed by Utah, losing to CU and KSU, the offense getting worse, and there is plenty to be not happy about.

    And I also agree that the preseason expectations are irrelevant. What matters is how the season actually played out, and what the competition was actually like, not what they were predicted to be like.

    Re: Giggles at it again

    That guy is an idiot. Not sure why you guys listen. I listed to him one time in the last 6 months. It was after the Creighton ISU game. He basically was acting like he was trying to find out who Shot JFK. His investigation of the replay was funny as crap. He just kept calling people to figure out who messed up.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Giggles at it again

    CW, the money can't be that good to have to sit through that. I tuned in on my drive home because you were on. That 15 minutes was the worst discussion I've ever heard.
    I'd be willing to chip in to some sort of fund reserved to pay for your services on days you're offered to be on that show. This way CF is never associated with it.

    Ok, 98th in the country in total offense. Arob/Franklin/Lemaak are the biggest losses.

    Agree with this and to a certain point, with Matt. This was another season where the conference schedule we played was not killer, but we didn't capitalize. It looked tough before the season, but when we beat Tech and Texas, a bowl game qualification should have been a forgone conclusion. Instead, our guys lost a bunch of winnable games and got absolutely blasted in 3 games.

    Iowa's season was disappointing to them because they jacked up their preseason expectations so high. They didn't take into account all of the luck they had which led to several wins last year that could have gone either way.

    agreed, this is just stupid. we are both disappointed in the season, but ISU finished where most thought they would with some suprises and glimpes of hope...

    iowa finished so much lower then most thought they would with 4 weeks in a row, to end the season, of disappointed games against crap tastic teams.

    no brainer, most hawk fans think they had a worse year, just stupid.

    This guy will do anything he can to bash ISU. We didn't even play this week, everyone in the state is talking about Iowa, and he manages to bring up ISU again.

    A gift? A team that was still ranked and had just beat a top 10 Nebraska on the road? The wheels fell off of Texas after ISU kicked the **** out of them, not before that.

    I'm not listening, but I'm waiting to hear he brought out the "ISU has the most sensitive fanbase" line. Coming from the whiniest little ***** in the state.
