    Southern Miss football series?

    I was already registered to post on the Eustachy thread, so I thought I would ask this question while I was here:

    How do ISU fans feel about a possible future football series with Southern Miss?

    We currently have our second 2 for 1 lined up with Nebraska. We also have a home and home with Kansas deal inked.

    Our new head coach is Larry Fedora (former OK State Offensive Coordinator), so I think we will be looking for more Big 12 series in the future.

    Just curious what you guys thought about it.

    It'd be a great idea and fun too. You're a good team that would help the pre-conference strength of schedule.

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:

    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    I think it'd be a good series.

    However, you guys should start a series with Iowa to see who has a better looking yellow bird logo.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about beating them, however you'll have to deal with their fans coming down and trashing Hattiesburg, and their players coming and stealing all your DVDs

    Re: Southern Miss football series?

    Iowa still holds that logo thing against us. Both schools have black and gold for colors, and both schools have birds of prey for mascots.

    Yeah the logos are both bird heads, but ours is a full cartoon head, and theirs is just the outline. I don't see how you can get them confused.

    Sounds like their program has been having a little too much "fun" lately.

    "Fun" doesn't exactly describe the irrepairable damage they have done to the state of Iowa via bad publicity...

    I'd like it, except I think our schedule is already set for a while.

    However, I'm also for easy wins....

    You obviously don't know too many Iowa fans.

    For the record, your logo is a cartoon bird head.

    Their logo is just a cartoon head turned sideways

    I don't know that I know any Iowa fans, but I can't say that I care too much for Iowa after the logo fiasco.

    I took that as him saying that he would prefer an easy win over scheduling us. If he did mean it as we are an easy win, just the more reason for you to schedule us

    Rotate it beak up and it's an old lady hunched over wearing a shawl carrying something like a basket or loaf of bread.

    Heh, I think that reads wrong. I didn't mean Southern Miss as an easy win, I meant a team like a Duke.

    I would say we haven't won many upset games recently but there are a few teams you could ask what happens when you underestimate us. See 1997 Liberty Bowl vs. Pitt. You guys on here seem pretty down to earth glad to get some good discussion going.
