    Reasons why the Hawkeyes may upset Wisconsin

    1. Iowa's players are desperate to show that their season is not going down the tubes. They will play like wounded animals who've been backed into a corner.

    2. They are playing a vastly overated Wisconsin team that TRAILED UNLV going into the last couple of minutes, and that was TIED with Citadel at half time.

    3. They have a history of playing well in Madison.

    4. They know a win in Madison will make everyone forget their loss in Ames.

    5. The Big 10 is off to a very disappointing start, so the Hawkeyes feel like this is their year to shine, especially since they don't play the Big 2 this year.

    I'm predicting a close game.

    Bielema is an ex-Hawk, just like McCarney. Badgers big.

    They may as well have benefitted from playing Michigan this year. Penn State looks like the Big Ten's best team this year, and they're not even good enough to make some NC noise.

    Reasons the Badgers will kick Iowa's azz all the way to LaCrosse:

    1. The Squawks suck.

    Re: Reasons why the Hawkeyes may upset Wisconsin

    Hawk-whats? Don't we play Toledo this week? I don't see anybody talking about UNI or KSU this week as they are in the past, as are the Hawks.

    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Iowa doesn't stand a chance. Not with Christianson at QB

    They're 1-AA, but it's a military college in Charleston, SC. I think they played Texas A&M a few years back.

    Re: Reasons why the Hawkeyes may upset Wisconsin

    GUARANTEED VICTORY

    Albert Young and Sims are the best running backs in the country.

    Jake is all pro once he starts Big Ten Conference play

    Hayden will be there.

    Zabel promised a win.

    Adam Shada will intercept three passes after he pulls the receivers down.

    Kirk needs to keep his day job.

    Parker wants to prove he has the pzazz to set the defense.

    The refs are already paid off.

    The Herbster will be watching.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, 3sus, Hallice, Deonte, Dustin, Abdel, Monte, Matt, and McKaT.

    I do believe I've seen more upset predictions here than I have seen on most Iowa boards.
