    Let's face it, Western Michigan was underrated..

    Can you believe it? Hawkeye Play by Play announcer made that statement after the game, talking about how tough WM really was. What a reach! This was a 3-7 team from a below average conference.

    Iowa and the rest of the Big 10 are sub par this year, no matter how anyone slices it. Period.

    Especially Iowa.

    Well... they are now 2-0 against Western Michigan at HOME in the last decade!!!
    I know weve lost to lesser teams, but we dont have a $3 million coach in his 9th or so year. I dont even think McCarney couldve lost that game.

    Yes...sadly, I have no problem at all believing he said that. In fact, I expected it.

    Do I personally buy into that - NO WAY. Can I believe that reason was used - of COURSE!! My whole life, the Hawk fans that have surrounded me are of similar ilk, with similar reasoning. Excuses abound - the reality of their mediocrity is too hard for them to come to grips with. But then, I just attribute it to the edjicashun they are getting at that school.


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    Kirk remains one of the best coaches in the country. At least with the o-line he had 4 or 5 years ago.

    Why did they even play the game? Iowa had nothing to gain from it.
