    + This is only year 5; how long did it take Danny Mac to turn things around?

    + The UNI Defensive front 3 was actually so small they could squeeze between our huge front 5.

    + SEZ SEZ SEZ!

    + We need to drop UNI from future schedules; what do we benefit from playing them?

    + Our Turf Team is ranked #1 in the nation.

    Knott coming in earlier and our O lineman not getting hurt and causing a huge shift in the line could have been enough to turn the L to a W.

    somebody says they didn't score 40 points or more.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Neither of those things should have to happen for us to beat UNI. I don't mean that as slight to UNI, they deserved to win that game. But ISU shouldn't need luck and a prayer to beat and FCS team. If we do, then maybe we should just move to the MAC and quit worrying about athletics.

    +The game wasn't televised to anyone outside of Iowa's Mediacom so no one actually saw us loss at home to a middle-of-the-road FCS team.


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Re: ***Official Pollyanna Thread***

    A weak B12 North schedule is not coming back anytime soon. We play only one team (KU) that is arguably worse than UNI.

    It's not going to get a lot easier any time soon in the B12.

    You can't really sell "rebuilding" and the future if the wheels fall off in year 5.

    Football wise, there isn't anything positive tonight. Really have to stretch to make this thread work.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Sure you can. Hell, I know where you can pick up some on sale in year 15.

    (Sorry, I don't know if that is more of a snarky shot at Iowa or ISU. I'm just still ****** off from the Morneau news. Cast a pall over the whole damn day BEFORE everything went to hell in a handbasket. So I'm cranky. I'm sorry.)
