    Re: Vegas has Iowa as a 9 1/2 favorite over ISU. Thoughts

    Over the last three seasons Iowa has 4 total more wins than ISU.

    Its not like we are talking about needing 2 extra creampuffs a year to have the same record. We are talking about having 1.

    as someone who has been to quite a few Iowa State game the past 10 years or so; including games versus Iowa at Jack trice stadium, Iowa state is simply a different team when they're playing Iowa.

    I've always commented that if they could play with that same level of intensity and fire when they play Kansas or Northern Iowa, the clones would win a helluva lot more games

    Finally after all these years it just hit me how Iowa can justify their ANF stickers. They do actually help farmers! Their fans continually spout off bull**** producing enough fertilizer for all farmers annually. Thanks for helping figure that one out Herk.

    You forgot to say Super Bowl. Thanks for this overplayed argument.

    obviously you two clowns haven't been to many Iowa State football games.do yourself a favor and try making it to a game once in awhile.

    seeing the difference in Iowa State's players in a rivalry game versus a regular season game is extremely noticeable.

    at no other time have I seen players flying all over the fieldin the bench in a huge frenzy the entire game. If you don't notice that then you obviously aren't paying attention.

    the Super Bowl is a big game for everyone......

    I always love this from Hawk fans.

    I will assure you as someone who was part of 5 ISU/Iowa games the preparation was the same as it was for KU, KSU, Texas, or anyone else we played.

    So quit flattering yourselves.

    Oh now we're 'clowns'. The originality in this one is fresh. Never seen a game in person, I must of started getting high as an infant since I've been going to all the games since then, apparently I wasn't watching.

    I think its more likely that ISU players seem to play with more energy when they are winning. We just happen to beat Iowa more often than not.

    Look at intensity levels vs KU last year, vs Baylor the year before. Winning = celebrating and showing passion. So yes I guess we do that vs Iowa.

    I think it's at least fair to say Steele Jantz played out of his mind against Iowa. Then he did pretty much nothing after that.

    I'm not a player anymore but I know I take off the entire month of September just to prepare and either celebrate or sulk after getting the chance to play the mighty Iowa Hawkeyes from the powerful Big Ten Conference

    ISU's Superbowl, always up for this game, yadda, yadda, yadda. I remember always hearing from squawk fans how iowa always improved throughout the season much more than any other team and they would always win this one going away if the game happened at the end of the season. And then 9-11 happened and the 2001 game was played at the end of the season and look how that turned out.

    Steele did play better against Iowa than other opponents, but mobile quarterbacks seem to give Iowa fits.
