    I wish ISU had such a flatline of a schedule. We'd be sitting pretty at (probably) 5-2 also.

    Re: rankings & tid bits

    I was thinking on Saturday as I was watching Penn State and NW. God I wish ISU could play in the B1G. I am not saying we could compete with Wisco, OSU and Mich. But we could compete with everyone else in that conference.


    A world without yoga pants and Planter's cheese balls, is a world I no longer want to live in.

    Re: rankings & tid bits

    I hope people can step back and realize this when the season ends. I'm not one for excuses for not making a bowl game but when you are trying to build a program it's hard to get three wins when you will play 1 conference game against a team ranked below 26th.


    It's all snark from here on out

    And to think that this is the conference that people are trying to get out of. I guess competition scares some people.

    Imagine how many hawk fans will be calling for KF head if Iowa is in the Big 12? I'm fairly sure Iowa would have the same record as us, if not worse.

    Re: rankings & tid bits

    As much as the past four games have hurt (admittedly, I'm routinely over-zealous with my expectations of the team), this helps to put things in perspective. I hope people can take note of the challenges that we face week in and week out compared to some of the other "Big Boys" in BCS football.

    the teams they have played have a 11-27 record against fbs opponents. 2 of the 11 wins are against them. of the other 9, 4 are by penn state. would be nice.

    The thing that sucks is in order to hope to get to a bowl you have to win the non-conference games. Many people have said that we won't be able to become bowl eligible if we don't drop Iowa and some of the other tough teams from our schedule. So what do we do this season, we win our non conference games, as tough as it might be, and we still can't get the three conference wins because the whole conference is ranked, has been ranked, or is close to it except us and Kansas.

    Re: rankings & tid bits

    I don't disagree that we have to win the non-conference games and then beat up some Big 12 opponents. My point was more along the lines that people will routinely spout off about how great Iowa Football is, but, especially this year, they play very few teams of merit.
