    "ISU's Super Bowl"

    I can't tell you how many times I've heard/seen this from Hok* fans since about 3:00 Saturday afternoon.

    Let me get this straight for all of you. This is NOT Iowa State's Super Bowl. Paul Rhoads has made it very, VERY clear - Big XII conference games are what matter, because that's how you win the conference. But we want to win EVERY game and we go out with that attitude, regardless of who's on the other sideline.

    Iowa and Iowa State spent just as much time preparing for this game. They had just as many practices and just as many contact hours with coaches. At the end of the day, the more inspired, well-coached, and flat out talented team won the game at Jack Trice yesterday. And if you can't understand that, Hok fan, you are truly dumber than a bag of rocks.

    Now GTFO of Ames.

    *Please do not be offended, Hawk fan. I know that you are not like your drunken, idiotic Hok fan brethren who simply cannot understand that the Hawks were outplayed yesterday. Hoks give Hawks a bad name.

    Has Iowa State ever beat Iowa and it wasn't ISU's superbowl? Same old excuse every time.

    Our Super Bowl will be when we hand Bob Stoops his third loss in Memorial Stadium. Five words: Gus Johnson and Steele Jantz.

    Re: "ISU's Super Bowl"

    I don't buy into the "super bowl" garbage, but what does it say that your team doesn't get up for an early season game against a perceived "lesser" opponent? That's what making that comment is saying.

    Re: "ISU's Super Bowl"

    If this is the case, Iowa sure has lost a lot of Super Bowls over the last 13 years. In fact, Iowa has now lost as many Super Bowls as the Vikings and Bills have lost combined.

    Re: "ISU's Super Bowl"

    I love beating Iowa but in all honesty isn't the goal of every game to win? Doesn't matter if you are playing Podunk State, Iowa, or Texas, you want to win them all and you would expect the players to want that same mentality too so why would the Iowa game be any different? I hate the super bowl excuse too, I think most ISU fans would take a win over Texas, Oklahoma, or Nebraska over Iowa most years. You'd love to beat all 3 of them really! Yeah the in-state rivalry probably adds a little adrenaline to the players but I'm sure the Iowa players get that same rush too as they don't want to lose this game either.

    Re: "ISU's Super Bowl"

    Super bowl or not, it doesn't really change the fact that they lost, and that we really did look like the better team on Saturday. Anyways, I can distinctly remember the Iowa team running through our bench to reclaim the Cy-Hawk trophy just as enthusiastically as we did to their bench yesterday. In 2006, and in 2008, and in both instances this happened right in front of me.

    Poor Iowa fans just have to realize that this game matters equally for both teams--I love the sentiment that the Big XII is what really matters (and I suppose that would be the same down the Iowa lane for the Big 10), but the state obviously cares about this game and Iowa fans obviously do too. Nice post, CyFan61. Equal time for practice and equal results. They can go back to wanting to fire Ferentz now.

    Re: "ISU's Super Bowl"

    Iowa cares about this game at least as much as Iowa State:

    "The worse feeling I've ever felt in my life was losing to Iowa State" -Bob Sanders (who experienced losing to ISU 4 times)

    If Sanders felt that way...then this game must be Iowa's Super Bowl.

    No kidding. The same people saying that it is ISU's super bowl are probably also saying fire Ferentz.

    Re: "ISU's Super Bowl"

    Honestly, I hope Rhoads has his players fired up to the point where they think every single game is a super bowl. F Iowa... and their cry baby fans. In a few months, our basketball team will be playing their "NBA Championship Game" too!!!

    Re: "ISU's Super Bowl"

    There's no evidence whatsoever that you can point to that would indicate that this is our "Super Bowl". None.

    In fact, if it was our Super Bowl, you'd think we'd win it more often?

    Since Iowa dominated us in the last two meetings, does that mean it was their Super Bowl?

    Whenever we win, it's never because we're the better team... NEVER. It's always some kind of fluke, or that we just get up more for the game.... blah, blah, blah. Just a bunch of whiny little crybabies who can't get over the fact that they were NOT the better football team.

    The game really shouldn't have even went into OT. Had we not turned it over 3 times and committed almost twice as many penalties, we win by a good 13 point margin in regulation IMO. We overcame a lot of our own mistakes yesterday to win.

    Re: "ISU's Super Bowl"

    Actually, if you look at the last couple of years performance relative to the seasons, you would come to the conclusion that Iowa treated this game as their superbowl (their performance was much greater than their whole-season performance would predict) and iowa state treated it as the exact opposite (it was an outlier on the negative side)

    Correct. Though now that we've won that game, i wouldnt give up those OTs for anything. JTS was rocking during those.
