    Iowa is going to the.................

    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    They are gonna get hammered by USC. I am not a USC fan by any means, but they might be playing some of the best football right now.

    Oh give them more credit than that.... They'd have at least 30,000 there. I think it's a good thing they're not going and sends a strong signal which way that program is going.

    Re: Iowa is going to the.................

    The fact that this years pathetic Iowa team actually qualified for a bowl is absurd. I'm glad they did not go so we did not have to hear weeks of excuses about their injuries, there lack of focus and how they were going to use this as practice time for next year so they could get back to the "high standards" that they are used to, blah, blah, blah, puke, puke, puke.
    There are over 60 teams going to bowl games which is also crazy. A bowl should be an award for an accomplishment of a good season not a pass for mediocrity, which is my opinion of Iowa's football history over the long haul.
    I notice Rivals has the Iowa 2008 recruiting class ranked 75th thus far. Pretty weak for a coach making nearly $3,000,000.

    They were an at-large eligible team, and with Ohio State going to the NC game, the Rose Bowl decided that it wanted to keep with it's Pac-10, Big 10 tradition. I think it's pretty cool, actually.

    Illinois will get destroyed ala Iowa in '02, but it's still sweet they get a chance.

    I don't recall ISU making it into a bowl this year either. But I forgot, they already won their bowl game. They beat Iowa... right?

    I agree. While I don't think Illinois stands much of a chance, they did beat OSU at OSU, so I wouldn't rule them out. Also, I'm glad the Rose Bowl was able to keep the BigTen/Pac10 tradition.

    The Enterprise will not be traveling south this year?

    Very disappointing. It won't feel like the holidays without listening to Gary and Ed call the real National Championship.

    Also, Western Michigan won their bowl game this year. Good for them!


    have you ever got caught outside In a strong rainfall? Yes or NO. If it"s yes, then you might half felt the pane of hard(tought) rain on you head. If it hurt"s then it"s tough. Yes or no. Okay I'm right and you know it.

    So alothough you attempt"ed to say you didn"t understnad, now you do. Fair enough?

    Was Iowa State supposed to win 10 games this year? Nope. We won about as many games as expected. Can your Hawks say the same thing? 10 wins....hahahahhahahahaha, I'm still laughing.
