    Homer-itis - and not the kind you think...

    After perusing the board for a bit, there are numerous posts on how poopy UofI is and how Minny will whomp 'em... and of course most agree but last peak sqwuaks up 24-0. Then there are all the posts about TTech being overconfident and how we'll whomp 'em too. Either we have the most homer fans with delusions of football grandeur or (some) fans are really ignorant and just blinded by their hatred for eastern iowa college.

    Last I looked we were struggling to be above .500 overall and have a HUGE hole to get anywhere close to even in conference play. Love me the CPR but anyone thinking we're making waves on the national football scene - either now or in the near future - are smokin' something.

    I'm ***** y this morning 'cause I didn't sleep well - sleep apnea sleep study this week though!

    The Big 10 is so bad ... Iowa will end up winning as many games as ISU, maybe more. After tonight we play 6 of 8 games against teams that won 10 or more games last year plus Texas (8-5 in 2011). Iowa plays one team that won at least 10 games.

    Minnesota is football's version of the hollow army.

    Remember, Iowa emphasizes conference games, not preseason tuneups.

    Re: Homer-itis - and not the kind you think...

    Iowa is still a really bad football team. Minnesota is just a really, really, really bad football team. Iowa will win some Big 10 games because the conference is a dumpster fire. That doesn't mean they are anything but horrible at football.

    That why 9-6 scares me.

    I have to say, I don't think I've ever seen a bigger collection of dumbs---- than this Minnesota team.

    Wait. So we're not supposed to dislike our hated rivals and think they're no good? ****, college has changed a lot since I was there.

    Did you really use the word "poopy?"

    I agree that the posters on CF can almost be sickeningly optimistic, but I think you're taking a lot of what is posted too literally. You can't take some of these comments in a vacuum. There's always going to be a lot of trash talk about Iowa, simply for the enjoyment of the wonderful Hawkeye fans that frequent the forums.

    Living out West, and you probably realize that almost every fanbase is a little full of themselves -- it's probably just that you notice ISU since that's the team you're a fan of.

    I guess we could give Iowa and Texas Tech a bunch of passive-aggressive backhanded compliments. We've gotten an education in it the last two weeks from Tech posters.
