    90% of the time when an FCS team takes down an FBS team it has nothing to do with talent on the field. More often it is either bad coaching or the FBS team playing horrendously.
    I believe UNI had two more turnovers than ISU, one of them at the 1-yard line going in for a TD that would have put UNI up by 15. Say what you want, ISU may have more talent, but UNI was the better team that day despite losing the turnover battle.

    UNI has 10 wins against FBS teams since 1985 with 4 of those coming against Iowa State. Here is UNI's recent history against FBS teams:
    2007 @ Iowa State W 24-13
    2008 @ BYU L 17-41
    2009 @ Iowa L 16-17
    2010 @ Iowa State L 0-27
    2011 @ Iowa State L 19-20
    2012 @ Wisconsin L 21-26
    2012 @ Iowa L 16-27
    2013 @ Iowa State W 28-20
    2014 @ Iowa
    2014 @ Hawaii

    Other than the loss to BYU (which was a one score game going to the 4th quarter) and Iowa State (in 2010) the Panthers have made it a close game in all their other FBS vs. FCS match-ups. Not too bad for 22 less scholarships and always playing on the road in hostile environments.

    I'm as clone to the bone as anybody but I'll admit last year's UNI win was far from a fluke. David Johnson was a man among boys out there. And as you posted, UNI has done pretty well against the big boys using a lot of Iowa high school players.

    Good post.

    ISU certainly didn't lose to UNI "just because they played a horrible game". UNI controlled the line of scrimmage, and David Johnson ran wild. That isn't ISU losing because they played a bad game. That's ISU losing to a team that was better than them up front and had a running back good enough to take advantage of it.

    No...isu had a backer out of position all game and it cost them huge run after huge run. Anybody who knows football watched that.

    Your middle linebacker...the run stopper cant just run the wrong way all game. It doesnt matter who you are playing.

    Blame the coaches all you want for not yanking him or having a back up ready. That was the entire story of the game.

    It got fixed and all of a sudden isu wasn't giving up those runs later in the year.

    Oh and the offensive coordinator was clueless but that's another story.

    That could have been part of the problem but it doesn't completely explain David Johnson running over and around tacklers, then sprinting away from them for what, about 280 yards in total offense? I know we improved over the year but sometimes you just have to give credit when credit is due, and UNI pretty much dominated every phase of the game.

    Did you watch the game? Are you trying to say the only reason David Johnson ran wild is because of the MLB not being in position? Does that mean you think ISU won the battle at the L.O.S.? Because if you think it had nothing to do with what was going on up front then clearly you don't know football.

    The right linebacker was MIA.

    Let's just go ahead and say the majority of the defense was MIA. Missed tackles everywhere.

    Re: RECRUITING: Are more in-state commits on the way?

    Let's just say the linebackers sucked. UNI scored 3 TD's on the first 3 possessions. That was enough to win the game right there. Add in a completely clueless Offensive coordinator and ISU can not overcome that deficit. UNI played great. ISU played like crap. And UNI won by 8 points. Anyone else and it would have been a 30 to 40 point blowout.

    Re: RECRUITING: Are more in-state commits on the way?

    UNI is an extremely mediocre FCS program at this point. They haven't even been able to qualify for the FCS playoffs (under an expanded format, yet) in either of the last 2 seasons, and had a losing record just 2 years ago. They are not a quality football team right now.

    The **** is up with this thread. I came in here looking for ISU recruiting and found purplehawk trolls and hawk trolls jabberjacking about the quality of UNIs program.

    Mods, please move this to in-state rivals or remove the trolls.

    Thanks,

    The thread was about in state recruits which led to a discussion about the quality or lack of quality of Iowa high school football which led to a discussion about how well UNI has done with mostly Iowa high school recruits, so not much of a stretch. And I'm no troll, I'll match my Clone credentials with anyone. I just don't believe that admitting you got whupped and giving credit when credit is due makes you any less Clone to the bone.
