    Re: Sure wished WE had played OSU last year!

    Why, so we could be retroactively bowl eligible - for a bowl we never got to go to anyway?

    Re: Sure wished WE had played OSU last year!

    It's my understanding that a vacated win does not equal a loss, nor does it equal a win for the opposing team. For example, if OSU went 11-1 last year, their record would now officially be 0-1.

    Why, so ISU could have one less loss.

    They are vacating the wins. The other team does not retroactively get wins for those games.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Yeah it would have been sweet to get smacked by 35+ points, only to see the game erased from the record books!

    Yeah, I was kind of reaching to try to figure out what good the OP saw this would have done the program if we had played them last year. I am still at a loss...

    Re: Sure wished WE had played OSU last year!

    As a Hawk fan, I am sad to see this happen. I don't think they'll be showing this game on Big Ten network in the future, so I can't get a chance to relive the sheer awesomeness of what was Iowa 4th quarter football, 2010.

    I was wondering about that - would the Big 10 network not be able to replay any OSU games for that season? Would the PAC-12 network not play USC highlights from their "non"-championship season?

    Yeah, you're right. An interesting discussion..would be who (among players, fans, coaches, et al) are the winners ,,,and losers in the decision to vacate the wins. Certainly, Columbus, OH (hotels/restaurants) didn't lose anything.

    And as others have mentioned in this or other threads, I'm pretty sure that the OSU athletic department will not be sending out refunds to ticket holders of games that "never happened" nor returning broadcast windfalls from those vanishing games. This action is a phantom sanction, but OSU will certainly wear long faces and sackcloth while talking about how sorry they are.

    Re: Sure wished WE had played OSU last year!

    If anything they should vacate using the word the when referring to OSU. I think this would be a bigger blow to the school and many fans would feels the effects instead of vacating wins that don't mean much now.

    I was thinking the same thing when I saw this. Oh well we do have a win in basketball over the Fab Five by vacate.

    Did you happen to pay attention to anything that was said above??

    When a team vacates wins it only affects their record, it does not give everyone they played a retroactive win.
