    I tend to not gloat much because someday the situations will be reversed, but people like this make it real hard.

    I got a congratulations from a co-worker today.


    Not sure I did anything to deserve it, though.

    "If we don't let them win every four years, we get bored."

    1) He has no affiliation with the U of I, and still uses "we"

    2) It may be the most idiotic thing I've ever heard.

    edit: The guy goes to Kirkwood CC, go figure.

    Re: Share comments from Hawk fans today

    I actually heard a Hawk fan sitting by us say before the game that he liked the atmosphere better than Kinnick. Don't hear many say that.

    Re: Share comments from Hawk fans today

    I believe in preemptive strikes, so my first thought I shared with Hog eye fans were: get used to it. Rhoads is our Hayden, only he will lead ISU to greater achievements than Fry did at Iowa. This is year 1 and there are 14 more years of Cyclone victories to follow.
    Also, the TV announcers bragged about how 10 walk-ons were on the Iowa 2-deep. As the game played out and afterward, I felt maybe Iowa having 10 walk-ons in the 2-deep is not something to brag about. That team has no where near the depth it had for the past 5-6 seasons.
    Prater & Hyde should have went into the draft after last season. Somehow, after losing 5 to 6 guys who were at NFL camps, he does not look quite as good this year (so far). Funny how that works.

    I've actually heard people say that they were going to the U of I, only to find out they go to Kirkwood. Apparently they're easy to confuse.

    Re: Share comments from Hawk fans today

    Did not get to see the game in person, but just about caused a multi-car collision on University Ave in WDM as White scored & I was pumping both fists to the sky so I had no hands on the wheel as I was driving. (My son thought it was fun)
    But, as usual, I listened to the Hog eye call in show on the drive back home, and most were peeved at both coordinators, mostly O'Qeefe. Said Iowa was too predictable & would never try to win games - should have went for it in 3rd OT on the 4th & 1. To me, this is 'our coaches lost the game, we would have won' type of statements.'
    However, most callers seem quite tempered. 1 stated how Iowa clearly lacked speed across the board. I believe most now realize they just are not very good.

    Maybe its because Kinnick is filled with 75,000 drunken d-bags?

    Along these same lines, I had a former co-worker who graduated from UNI who used to go on spring break every year until he was about 30 years old and tell people he was in law school at Iowa. If that's not pathetic, I don't know what is.

    My quote from him, James Vandenburg is an ordinary pocket passing QB, he will do very little to win a game for you!!!! His record speaks for itself.
