    End of ISU / Iowa game?

    It's the dude, but if true I couldn't see how we'd keep playing Iowa every year?



    The Dude of WV ‏@theDudeofWV

    Big 12 has told itís members to prepare to schedule two non-conference games per year with the ACC. WVU will get Pitt & VT.

    Two non-conference games with the ACC per year in football? Ridiculous. So 11 of 12 games every year would be against BCS-level competition?

    Two non-cons per year is absurd. Gives each school virtually no flexibility in terms of schedule. Can't see how anyone in either conference would agree to this.

    We should stop playing them. We have nothing to gain and everything to lose. It's their Super Bowl so they only get up for our game and try to ruin our season.

    I just hope we win the last one. I could personally get past losing it. But the Iowa fans I know couldn't.

    Re: End of ISU / Iowa game?

    Wait this info is coming from the dude?

    I like reading his stuff as much as anyone, but can't see that happening unless they did an 8 team conference.


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    don't see this happening...........if you are going to do that, might as well just absorb the ACC after the B1G takes a couple more.

    Looks like UI game will be history - too many smoke signals blowing the other direction.

    Would improve Hok chances of making a bowl. Is there any limit to how many directional teams one plays?

    Re: End of ISU / Iowa game?

    Bowls are likely to become a lot more of a joke once the playoffs start anyway. I say even if true, f it and play Iowa anyway. Makes for an awesome regular season.

    I can see the Iowa game coming to an end, but I don't see any way we would play 2 ACC opponents.
