    Rather play UNI or Drake?

    I was looking at ISU's most played opponents when something surprised me, how many times we've played Drake. I knew that we had played them in basketball each year since 1908, but didn't know we played as much as we did in football. I know some people, myself included, would like to see us stop playing fcs opponents but until that happens, what is your opinion on playing drake instead of uni. I don't like playing against uni and would support this move big time, especially since we have more history playing them than Iowa, what are your thoughts?

    Opponent (games played)
    Drake (69)
    Iowa (60)
    UNI (24)

    yeah, Drake is a lower level of football than FCS. I'm not even sure they'd count as a win on ISU's schedule.

    Drake is fcs, same as uni, and plays in the pioneer league. A win over them would count the exact same as a win over uni.

    Yeah, but no one would want to watch us play drake. That would be a snoozefest.

    I'm pretty sure it wouldn't. They play in a league that is FCS non-scholarship. Drake wouldn't even beat Western Illinois.

    I really don't even want to play UNI. That's double for Drake.

    Re: Rather play UNI or Drake?

    Hell no.

    I don't like playing a FCS opponent as is, let alone against a team that is in an even lower level of competition.

    Dating myself, but I have sat in JTS and watched Drake beat us. They also beat us in BBall that year. Twas not a good year.

    According to Wikipedia it has to be a scholarship awarding FCS program. So therefore a win over Drake would count as a win but not for bowl eligibility.

    Re: Rather play UNI or Drake?

    Playing UNI sucks but it is what it is. I would give up my season tixs if we were to ever play Drake in football. Luckily that will never happen again.

    1985 - That was the day Iowa State football hit rock bottom. I don't think I've ever been as depressed as I was sitting through that game that afternoon. Thank you Jim Criner.

    Makes you wonder where our program would be if we had never hired Criner.
