    Yes.

    I put ISU at 12 in this thread, which is confident extension assuming Nader and McKay -- and BDJ -- live up to hype. Even with that, it's highest I can go right now without seeing them in action. Around 15th is reasonable with core returnees.

    In one season? Seems awfully optimistic since that's the win total vs. KU in the last ten seasons combined.

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    And you seem weird to us.

    Why is being in the same conference so important? A rivalry is a rivalry. Do you hate Mizzou any less now that they're in the SEC?

    A little, yes. And it will be less and less as the years go by. Since they do not stand between us and a conference title they went from an annoying little brother in our house to an annoying neighbor down the street.

    Not playing them at all anymore has more to do with it.

    Yes, and 'our house' is the state of Iowa. They are most decidedly in our house and - it goes without saying - annoying.


    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr

    Every Nebraskan that I've met finds it odd. I chalk that up to Nebraskan water and culture.


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

    Let's be honest, they never really stood between KU and the conference title. The only reason you answered "A little, yes" is because you guys don't play each other any more. If you continued to have yearly games against Mizzou it would still be hated. In order to keep a rivalry you have to play the team every year. And for us and Iowa it's also a conference pride thing too, on top of just wanting to beat them. Yeah, it's safe to say that you don't get it. Live in the state between the months of September and March, and you'll understand perfectly.
