    NDSU did us a favor tonight IMO

    Not convinced we needed extra motivation to take UNI seriously but it's nice the coaches can now show a perfect example of FCS able to beat a Big 12 team. Will it help tomorrow? Who knows but it certainly can't hurt.

    They did us a favor in letting Pollard know to send a check in the mail to not come to Iowa next year and instead let's bring Savannah State in.

    Re: NDSU did us a favor tonight IMO

    I have to agree, only good things can come from this. On the very off chance UNI does beat us, at least we weren't the only ones to go down to a FCS team (although the Big 12 would look horrible). And the whole reality check thing is nice too. Also, maybe gives us a little taste as to where KSU might stack up this year, and opportunity for ISU to vault up a position or two in the Big 12 standings.

    I agree with you but you better believe the coaches will be telling the team about the game in the morning.

    Agree, and ISU should still not take them lightly.

    Of course not. BUt the OP is 100%.

    This scoreline absolutely serves as better motivation for the team than Rhoads reminding the players that UNI kept it close and within 2 TDs of EIU and Wiscy last year with a worse team.

    Not worried about next year's game unless we plan on being 3-9 or 4-8.

    Totally. Get them off the schedule Pollard has really put ISU behind the 8 ball with some moronic scheduling. POllard giving Tulsa, Toledo, and SJ State (huge sleeping giant a good Bay area prospect only has a 50% chance of qualifying at Cal or Stanford so if you wanna stay home thats the only option in one of the 5 biggest metro areas in the US) return games and not even getting 2 for 1s is CRIMINAL!


    UNLV of course in 7 years is a team you gladly play on the road since its a summer bowl game for the fans but those 3 games are just as ******* stupid as NDST.


    Why the **** would a Big 12 team give Toledo a return game? IS Florida going there?

    Because we should never be afraid of those programs. Reach down and check to see if there is a sack down there.


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    It has nothing to do with being afraid. Where did I say don't schedule them?

    I said act like a Big 12 team and don't GIVE THEM ROAD GAMES!


    Again, Florida hosts Toledo tomorrow. Please tell me when the return game is? Oh wait, they are Florida tehy wouldn't ******* dream of going to Toledo.

    If you want to make it about money then tell me why fans selling out season tickets isn't enough support financially to have the program act like they are in the Big 12.


    3 extremely stupid return games are on future schedules. One of them not only just beat us in the bowl BUT winning the 3rd rubber game of the series will the WORTHLESS nationally after BGSU just packed their **** in.


    I'd love to hear what you think the program has to gain by going to Tulsa, Toledo, and San Jose and if beating those teams in their house will get ANY positive attention to the program? All it takes is 200k extra to not have to go to their place. And as I said the fans have completely done their part in acting like a big time program, its time for the AD to follow suit.

    You're right!! We are a prestigious program with many National Titles in a great location just like the Gators. Why are we playing at Toledo? And Pollard should have known years ago when these schedules were made that NDSU would beat 4 BCS teams in a row and win FCS titles left and right. He's obviously not doing his job, off with his head!

    It costs an extra 2-300k to not have to go back to Toledo. That is money ISU is guaranteed to recoup by playing a home game against anyone.

    You are playing with fire when you schedule teams like that because if you get a good MAC or MWC team in their year when they are the best team in that conference they are literally impossible to beat on the road. Did you see how well Rutgers played last night only to lose in Fresno?

    Hey, UNLV was a great team to schedule home and home I gave Pollard props for that since its 2 easy wins and a fun summer bowl game for the fans. The other 3 are stupid.

    NDST was scheduled a long time ago but could have been cancelled long ago as well after the first national championship. Do you really feel good about opening up against them next year?
