    Why I'm cheering for Iowa to beat Nebraska

    If Iowa beats Nebraska, Nebraska will end up at 6th in the Big Ten. That would put Nebraska in the Meineke Car Care Bowl in Houston matched up against.... a Big XII opponent.

    I haven't quite figured out what exactly would need to happen to get Iowa State on the other side of that bowl game, but getting a grudge match between Paul Rhoads and Bo Pelini after their two games that didn't end quite right would be a great draw for a bowl game from a ratings perspective.

    Plus, I just want to beat Nebraska again.

    I want somebody new. I've seen enough Nebraska to last a lifetime. I want somebody new.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Why I'm cheering for Iowa to beat Nebraska

    I would love another shot at NU, but Mizzou might have a nod because of their rivalry. Plus any bowl in the state of Texas will most likely take a Texas team, but yes, playing Nebraska again would be amazing.

    Edit: Texas vs Nebraska would be cool to see again too.

    That, and you hate Nebbie.

    I would like that though. I really would.

    I still want payback after losing to Nebbie last year on the 2 pt conversion. Would love to ****-pound them in a bowl game and then wipe our hands clean of them.

    I just hope it is a blow out for somebody. That will at least shut up one of the two fan bases.

    Re: Why I'm cheering for Iowa to beat Nebraska

    I'll be cheering for Nebraska because I would rather have Iowa go to the lower rated bowl.

    Re: Why I'm cheering for Iowa to beat Nebraska

    I just want a blowout, and probably for Iowa to lose because I see more Hawk fans than Nebby fans.

    That's an ok reason...but do we really need a reason? I mean, its Nebraska.

    Re: Why I'm cheering for Iowa to beat Nebraska

    The better question is why would anyone not want the Hawks to win that game.

    Re: Why I'm cheering for Iowa to beat Nebraska

    If that bowl ended up with iowa or nebraska on the b10 side, you can bet the bowl would be trying to schedule someone other than us to try to get higher tv ratings. Very small population footprint interested in an ISU-NU game or ISU-IA game.

    I am cheering for a massive earthquake that causes the ground under Memorial Stadium to open up and swallow both teams with the score tied at 0-0.
