    UNI now #1

    Moved from #2 to #1 with their recent victory. Congrats to them!

    DesMoinesRegister.com

    The Northern Iowa football team is ranked No. 1 in The Sports Network Football Championship Subdivision weekly poll that was released this afternoon.

    The Panthers improved their record to 6-0 last Saturday with a 30-24 win at Southern Illinois. They travel to 17th-ranked Western Illinois this Saturday.

    Previous-No.1 Montana dropped to No. 3 despite its 6-0 record. North Dakota State also went past Montana into the No. 2 spot. Southern Illinois is No. 9.

    Montana received more first-place votes than the Panthers, 40 to 35, but Northern Iowa accumulated more total votes.

    Good for them! (And in a way, good for us, the loss doesn't look so bad if they win it all...)

    Re: UNI now #1

    I hope they keep it going. Of the teams we've played so far I would say UNI is better or equal to Kent State, Toledo, Iowa, and possibly Nebraska.

    I've gotta think Mark Farley will get some offers this winter.

    Re: UNI now #1

    How are they ever going to resolve that three-way toss up at the top of the polls?

    It's too bad they don't have a playoff or something.


    The Gateway is going to get tougher next year when North Dakota State and South Dakota State join the conference. It should be hands-down the toughest conference in 1-AA

    Great win for UNI. Still...fortunate to get the win at home. Can anyone from SIU say turnovers? I'd pull for UNI but if these two teams meet again I think SIU will have the edge.

    Good for UNI and their fans... No and I'm not talking about all those fans of UNI that went to Ames with Panther Purple on, then came back the next week with Squawkeye shirts on.

    Pick a team UofI/Panther fans and cheer for them... I get sick of thos mixed fans...

    I'm obviously an Iowa State fan first, but I really enjoyed watching their run to the title game (year before last?). I hope they win it all.

    Their last playoff run didn't seem to help at all. I personally don't think he's in a rush to move anywhere. If he was, I think he would have jumped ship to coordinate at a BCS school or something similar.

    If he wants to leave, this year would probably be the best time though. UNI will most likely have to build up again after this year.

    Re: UNI now #1

    If they win the championship, the game announcers will keep repeating how they are the best team in the state.....for that matter, they will have 6 games on TV this year, four more than Lincoln, and three more than Ames.

    Re: UNI now #1

    At least we can say we lost to the #1 team in the nation - and if they go all the way the National Champion!

    Fortunately for them, it appears we're not dragging down their SOS (#1 team despite playing us). Must've helped them that we beat the Big 10 champion Iowa Hawkeyes...

    Exactly. No matter how much the UNI diehards want to argue, they will never convince me that there are more than 1000 people in this state who ONLY cheer for UNI. Most of them also are Hawk fans but a few like ISU as well. For this reason I really don't ever give a crap if they win or lose.
