    How big is the Iowa State-Iowa game this season?

    I think this is a huge game for both teams. For Iowa State, a win over Iowa opens the door for a bowl game. It would show CPR is making progress. It should also help bring contributions in and sell tickets.
    For Iowa, a loss to both Iowa State and Nebraska in the same season would be a huge blow for the program. It would be hard to defend the Iowa State game as a fluke for Iowa if Nebby also beats them.
    Iowa needs this as bad as we do imo.
    Interested in how others see this.

    Re: How big is the Iowa State-Iowa game this season?

    it's our 10th most important game behind the 9 conference games and ahead of UNI and UConn. rivalry games and having the cy-hawk trophy in Ames is nice but doesn't get us anywhere in the scheme of a big 12 title. that being said: Beat Iowa!

    Re: How big is the Iowa State-Iowa game this season?

    I think this game is big, and the biggest for Paul Rhoads. Being outscored 70-10 in 2 games is the only negative mark he has on his young resume that needs to be turned around.

    Re: How big is the Iowa State-Iowa game this season?

    Iowa doesn't need this as bad as we do. They have a MUCH weaker schedule.

    CPR has gotten his *** handed to him by Iowa 2 years in a row. He has a lot to prove in this game. We've laid down dead against them 2 straight years. First it was Arnaud wetting the bed in 2009, and last year it was our sieve-like defense getting licked.

    In neither game have we looked well coached across the board, and Herman has called awful games.

    If Iowa loses this game, they still have a great crack at a 3-1 non-conference, as Pitt lost a ton and shouldn't be very good next year.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    How do the 11 other games go?
    It is no more important than any other possible win, certainly behind Big 12 games.

    Honestly have we ever been in position for a Big 12 title? I mean this post seems to sum up the attitude placed on this game the past 2 years....It doesn't seem as important as it did to Dan McCarney....

    Re: How big is the Iowa State-Iowa game this season?

    This has been Iowa's Superbowl for three years minimum. They blast ISU last year, yet lose to Minnesota, a team ISU could beat 7/10 times?

    After Chizik beat them 15-13 in 2007, fast-fwd to the Hawkeye fan fest in Feb 2008 @ the Coralville Marriott. On air, many Hawk fb players were asked the main focus for the off-season and 2008..

    "BEAT Iowa St."

    Everyone FB player interviewed said they had the ISU game circled on their calendars

    so you Iowa fans don't tell me this game doesn't matter. that's hogwash

    They also blast us and then go onto a BCS bowl game. You can't say the Super bowl thing is weak when Hawkeye fans use it and then turn around and use it against Iowa.

    Thats the thing.. when we had a north and south and actually had a decent chance at the north, conference games were more important. Now that the chance of us taking home a title is almost nil, making a bowl, and then improving our bowl placement, is the priority, making all games more equal. This raises the importance of the iowa game compared to prior years.

    Re: How big is the Iowa State-Iowa game this season?

    Regardless of it being against Iowa, it's a winnable home game. That's about as big of a game as you can get when your primary goal is to get back to a bowl.

    Re: How big is the Iowa State-Iowa game this season?

    It's as important as every other game, every other year. It means nothing but bragging rights and a mark in win column. We need six, and I could care less how we get them.
