    end of helmet to helmet

    let's move on Iowa State fans... we got ripped, but the game is over and we know we're better than the hawks

    we have a big game with UNLV that we need to get ready for

    the Iowa State game was Iowa's Superbowl any way...

    Re: end of helmet to helmet

    I agree! We sound like hawkeye/husker fans complaining about penalties. Let's focus on the UNLV and then the real season begins with the Big 12 games.

    Re: end of helmet to helmet

    This "debate" will likely only end after next year's game. And even then...it'll continue for some.

    Re: end of helmet to helmet

    Right, this is the same thing we complain about them doing when we win. Let's face it, the call was made, we had other chances to score points and didn't. They won, let's move on. I don't think any of us here expected to have an udefeated season as it was. Congrats to the Hawks. Their team won, plain and simple. Now we need to worry about UNLV.

    Re: end of helmet to helmet

    Knowing how things usually go for us, this won't be the last questionable call of the season. There will probably be many more once conference play starts. So, we can just look forward to those instead.

    This is why you should not read threads for 3 days after a loss.

    Re: end of helmet to helmet

    This helmet to helmet crap is exactly the kind of nonsensical yammering and excuse making that many people on this board rip on EIU fans about after they lose.

    EXACTLY. If you want to see it go away, then quit talking about it!!!

    Otherwise just don't read it. Not that hard.

    Re: end of helmet to helmet

    I'm about to GO MIKE SANFORD on this subject - if anyone don't know who he is, check out the UNLV game from two years ago......he was yelling "We're not going anywhere" then it was "Where's the athletic director" yada yada yada.....he still lost!!!

    Oh but guess what, i'm guessing they haven't forgot that either.....they will be fired up and payback will be on his mind!!!!

    Re: end of helmet to helmet

    How can you beat the hawks if you cant score touchdowns?

    That sez it all boys block and tackle better than the hoax and the reebles and you win games in stead of just one of them!

    Except that iowa fans would be bringing that up as THE excuse for the loss. I think that ISU got screwed and that call played a big part in the outcome of the game, but regardless ISU did NOT deserve to win. If they would have gotten that call, they still would have had to do something they couldn't do all day to deserve the W.

    And if we keep posting in these threads, they will continue to show at the top of the New Posts list. If we don't respond, the thread will die off on its own.

    Oops...
