    This is an embarassing statement on ISU's behalf

    If anyone has any pull or connections in the media dept can you please tell them that statements like this don't "help" ISU's rep.

    UNI is NOT rated in Div I and should not be considered a "rated opponent" I'm sick of ribbing by opponent's fans and this only adds to the fire.

    UNI this year is capable of beating beat KSU, Kansas, Oklahoma State, Colorado, Texas A&M, and Baylor. They almost beat us. We will never know. Sagarin rates us #62 and Northern Iowa #72. Hmmm.

    Re: This is an embarassing statement on ISU's behalf

    Couldn't agree more. UNI is 1AA, and I don't care if they are the number 1 1AA team (and they aren't.) It's embarassing to see people refer to them as a "ranked" team. Much less a "rated" team. What does "rated" even mean?

    But if you don't like taking some abuse from our opponents fans, maybe you need to find another team. I graduated from the school, so I guess I am stuck with them. Had I not gone to school there, I would have pulled the plug on the clones a long, long time ago (or just never picked them up.) I was foolish, and valued an edumacation over a winning football tradition.

    This team is for the thick skinned only, and I figure fans of the team that didn't go there or live in Ames must have a touch of masochism. Taking much more abuse than you get to dish out is a cyclone fan's lot in life, at least so far for me, 20 years and counting.

    I'm pretty sure that ISU is 'rated.' Somewhere between 1 and 119 I hope.

    Agreed threemuch. I'd compare the Cyclones to cocaine. Most people hate it and look down on it, but some just can't get enough. And those that like it never get anything in return. Just the same old empty feeling over and over and over.

    Oh don't worry threemuch I'm thickskinned. I just don't like giving them free ammo.

    I don't really care "who" UNI could possibly beat. Part of being an upper echelon team (where we want to be right?) is that you take no pride in beating UNI and just pretend it was a bye week and you just scrimmaged the "B" squad tuning up for next week's real opponent.

    So is Toledo and UNLV then, right. We should have buried all three of these teams. Mac needs to go! I'm tired of all the spin. Do you know how stupid we look when we make these statements. I remember when we escaped Toledo and some squawks fans were rubbing it in. Then came the stupid statement of "Well, Toledo would beat half the teams in the Big Ten. These are stupid statements. We have stunk it up this year. We have good players. These games should have been over at the half. Mac needs to go!
