    Would love to see this moved to rivalry week for a period just to mix things up.

    Awesome. Rivalries are what make college sports great.

    Re: Cy-Hawk Game Extended Through 2021

    Got no problem with this. I actually thought Iowa might consider dropping it when B1G goes to nine game schedule.

    With our nine game conference slate, the Iowa game gives us five and five home-away against BCS schools.

    We need to dumb down schedule and get two cupcakes in Ames every year. But it sucks when a supposed cupcake (UNI) kicks our ***.

    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    We used to take on UNI because it put 55,000 butts in seats. We can get 55k+ with the Western Illinois of the world now. No reason to play UNI more than every 3-4 years in my opinion.

    Good. This is the biggest week in college FB in Iowa, at least. Businesses sport their colors. People who don't care about sports have potlucks and casual team day on that Friday.

    The only thing better would be if it were some state-wide work holiday.

    While playing our rivalry game during rivalry week would be awesome, having to compete against bigger games (along with crappy weather this late) forces the hand.

    At least we have Riot Bowl.

    Would agree. If the Iowa-Iowa State game had importance each year like Alabama-Auburn, Michigan-OSU, Oklahoma-OK State, Florida-FSU, etc then you can put it at the end of the year. It probably works better in the first 4 weeks of the year when most games played are cupcakes.

    I bet hawk fans love that this game is continuing! I'm personally happy that the game is continuing. It is a great rivalry for our state!

    Iowa fans think they're above everyone in the state and in their own side of the Leggings Division or whatever they're calling it these days. They say nobody gives a damn outside the state when Iowa plays ISU, but then I always ask them, who outside this state is clammoring to watch Iowa's games when they're playing someone else? Exactly, same answer. They usually can't answer that one without trying to bring up Hayden Fry.

    Re: Cy-Hawk Game Extended Through 2021

    I too would like it to be at the end of the season. I really enjoyed it the year it was moved there. Terrible reason that forced it to be moved. But it added just a little extra sizzle for it to be at the end.

    They could play a respectable BCS team like Pitt or Arizona as they have in the past. Playing us guarantees they'll never play another BCS team. I can see why it pisses them off. I think it's great because we can essentially ruin their whole season right at the start.
