    Classless comments from Iowa players....

    Goes with the territory but it seems out of line to me. Save the smack talk for the field not the press. I love it when Hawkeyes get cocky...that's when they are the easiest to beat!!

    ``This is their Super Bowl,'' defensive tackle Mitch King said. ``They're always going to play Iowa good.''

    ``It's not the coach that I hate or the players, it's Iowa State,'' Iowa offensive lineman Julian Vandervelde said. ``It's the entity that they are. It's the whole rivalry. I was raised an Iowa kid, and no matter what happens, I'm probably always going to hate Iowa State no matter who they're playing and who their coach is.''

    Sounds like their confidence is sky high after Syracuse.

    Re: Classless comments from Iowa players....

    I guess those comments don't seem out of line to me. They didn't say anything about beating ISU or about how bad ISU is this season or how good they are. All they're saying is that they hate ISU and that this is a huge rivalry. You might hear similar quotes from our players.

    Edit: I just reread the quotes and I originally read it as "our" Superbowl, not "their" Superbowl. That attitude that this game is somehow more important to ISU is B.S. I still don't see anything wrong with the second quote though.

    Re: Classless comments from Iowa players....

    Nothing irks me more than the "super bowl" comments. There is no bigger myth in Hawkdom than that one. It is a built-in excuse just in case they lose.

    Anyone that has played competitive sports has to know that is BS. Is there a certain excitement around this game? Absolutely. But to think that our players magically get better and try harder for this game and not others is ridiculous. Every time they step on the field, I am confident they are doing their very best to beat the other team whether it's Iowa, UNI, or Texas.

    Re: Classless comments from Iowa players....

    Did anyone make it to the end of the article?

    ``It wasn't until eight minutes left in the fourth quarter when we were really able to stand around on the sidelines and joke about it a little bit and point up at the scoreboard and say, look what happened to Iowa State,'' Vandervelde said.
    ``That was a lot of fun for us.''


    If this was a fan saying this fine, but a player??? Vandervelde is a first year starter on offensive line. Didn't he have a game to pay attention to? Even if it was 35-0. I played high school football at Central in Davenport with him. He was a sophomore on the varsity team when I was senior. Always high on himself just like this quote.

    Re: Classless comments from Iowa players....

    I guess I don't see how this is "classless." An interviewer asks them what they think about ISU and the results, and he says what's on his mind.

    Could he have said something that wouldn't have make bulletin board material? Sure, and he probably should have. But I fail to see how this is "classless" - he's simply getting into the rivalry.

    Maybe ole Mitch needs to head back to English class.

    And keep talking smack but you better back it up because if you lose to ISU, THAT is going to be embarrassing.

    Re: Classless comments from Iowa players....

    Classless? (I've seen much worse from our own fans about our own team in the past 2 weeks)

    Locker room material though? Sure.

    I'm no psychiatrist but...

    projection - A defense mechanism, operating unconsciously, in which what is emotionally unacceptable in the self is unconsciously rejected and attributed (projected) to others.

    Me thinks Hawks and Hawk fans are projecting a bit. Maybe this is THEIR superbowl.

    Re: Classless comments from Iowa players....

    Let them talk and get over-confident. I'm hoping they take us lightly just like their fans will be because that's when teams are the most vulnerable. I'm curious to see if we come out with the same fire for this game considering Chizik has never been a part of it and has no Iowa ties to have that extra motivation. That is one thing Dan brought to this game.
