    Iowa fans gone crazy

    For those people who I have heard bragging up how Ferentz has saved their season...

    YOU HAVE ONE GOOD WIN. Illinois (7-3, 4-2)

    wins
    Michigan State (5-5, 1-5)
    Northwestern (5-5, 2-4)
    Northern Illinois (1-8, 0-5)
    Syracuse (2-7, 1-3)


    Anyway.... after listening to radio callers asking for Capt Kirk to be named Big 10 coach of the year I had to get that off my chest.

    Re: Iowa fans gone crazy

    2 weeks ago they were calling for his head... Now he is the best coach in all the country. Ironic huh...

    I'm sure Southenhawk is dancing naked in the streets cause Iowa is beating a bunch of mediocre teams...

    Re: Iowa fans gone crazy

    Seriously how sad... All there wins are against teams that will have a combined losing record with probably only one of them getting to a winning record. Thats mighty right there... What a joke.

    I love that guy that said he thought Kirk should be named Big 10 coach of the year. I was like are you kidding me? Even John Miller was like well i think Zook might get it over Kirk.

    I cant wait for them to sign him and his pathetic coaching staff to lifetime contracts. We have no problem beating Iowa with them on the sidelines. I just wish Iowa played in a better football conference so they wouldnt go to Florida in Dec./ Jan. simply by getting bowl eligible.

    I was at work when that was on, but later Marty and Miller were rippin that guy for being a kool-aid bonging idiot, and they were giving Jon crap for not questioning him on it.

    I would like to see the Big XII North get better and better and maybe we can't get more competitive and see if we can't sign more bowls

    Re: Iowa fans gone crazy

    No one that lost to us this year prior to the OU game gets a bowl bid ... I think its in the by-laws or something.

    If Iowa would lose to Minnesota (and it won't happen) the Iowa fans would be back calling for Captain Kirks head. They are fickel.

    Their next two teams have 4 wins total between them. So that means they will have 7 wins with those teams wining around 15-18 wins between them this season.
    IN Basketball terms....They basically beat Dubuque 2 times, beat Baylor 4 times and Texas Tech once. That doesn't count for crap in my opinion, BUT they will end up at the Alamo, Insight or Champs Bowl (S.A, Pheonix or Orlando and get 1 month practice and get on TV for a 13th time.

    Re: Iowa fans gone crazy

    If Iowa goes to a bowl, more power too 'em. I mean, yes, it's pathetic....nothing short of pathetic. I don't see how you can dispute how pathetic that would be in college football - seriously.

    However, it is what it is. The Big 10 has 500 bowl connections. And, the Big 10 is very mediocre this year...making it easier to get enough wins for a bowl. To top it off, Iowa played a very weak non-conference schedule.

    A recipe for success, no mater how mediocre it is.

    Hey, you know, after a 2-4 start, I don't care who they beat, as long as they win.


    Here's the thing, what if Iowa plays a decent opponent in the bowl game, and wins? Considering the team is made up of 90% freshman and sophomores, I'd be OK with that. I'd be OK with a close loss to a good team.

    They may not have beaten anybody, but they are winning.

    AND....

    I'm pretty sure nobody wants to see me running around in the street naked.
