    + 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.

    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.


    A world without yoga pants and Planter's cheese balls, is a world I no longer want to live in.

    +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.

    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.)
