    Filling the Bye weeks: Sept. 7th and Sept. 21st

    Saturday, August 31st UNI
    Saturday, September 7th Bye
    Saturday, September 14th IOWA
    Saturday, September 21st Bye
    Thursday, September 26th @Tulsa
    Thursday, October 3rd TEXAS

    Any chance we can get one of those two bye weeks filled? Oklahoma and Oklahoma State both have bye weeks on September 21st as well. I don't like having two bye weeks in September for selfish reasons: better tailgating, more excitement to watch football, but I think it would really help the team to have a bye week later in the season to help heal some injuries, etc. Also, as cold as it gets in November, our attendance would be higher for September games.

    I dont think we need to worry about our attendance for football games. The last few years can prove that.

    No selfishness, just don't want the team to have 10 freaking games in a row. Get a week off to rest and heal.

    WTF can't we get a bye week in October?

    Having two by-weeks in September is insane, especially in a northern state like Iowa. Two September tailgating Saturdays burned.

    That West Virginia game was uninhabitable. Worst weather in decades at Trice, even for a November game

    Maybe we can play Tulsa again. Might as well invite them to the Big XII, hopefully we'd play them less in 1 year.

    I agree? Need one of those games filled. I'd prefer after Iowa.

    You're a drama queen if you think that was the worst weather in decades. There are 3 Mizzou games that come to mind (2004, 2008, 2010) that were MMMMUUUUCCCHHHHH worse then the WV game last year.
