    McCoy cleared to play vs EIU

    I hope there's a smoldering crater left in the turf at the AlamoDome after UT puts BigXII title game-like spanking on their unworthy opponents from EIU.

    Longhorns 412, Hawks 3.

    Re: McCoy cleared to play vs EIU

    I wouldnt mind seeing them getting spanked with a 3rd string QB though either. I just hope we dont see a last second hail mary from Tate to make everyone forget that hes an overrated and selfish punk. After the game, how soon will we hear about iowa going 11-1 next year? Before the spring game im sure... OH, wait... they dont have a spring game.

    I just hope Iowa is at full strength. I don't want them to have any excuses after they get destroyed by Texas.

    Just watched Cy-Hawk talk with Miller and Deace and they had predictions for 2007 and guess what??? Starting already with their prediction of EIU going 9-3 and getting a BCS bid and another Jan bowl game. I about fell off my chair I was laughing so hard.

    Re: McCoy cleared to play vs EIU

    They always have a favorable schedule due to the weak Big 10 aside from OSU and Michigan. Doesn't OSU fall off their schedule next season and Penn State comes back onto the schedule?

    tOSU AND Michigan are off their already weak schedule. We might be about the 3rd or4th toughest team we play next year. Wisconsin is far and away the best team they play, and the compitition really drops off from there. Purdue, Illinois, and Indy are getting better, but still not great.

    Re: McCoy cleared to play vs EIU

    What a lame schedule. If they don't go at least 9-3, there needs to be some forced coaching changes over there.

    Re: McCoy cleared to play vs EIU

    Someone connected to Iowa that was on Jon's show earlier this week predicted them to go 8-4 - at that was his optimistic view. He said it would not surprise him if another 6-6 season took place but expected 7-5.

    He made a good point, talking about "show me where Iowa gets better next year". They lose a QB, running back, tight end, etc.

    He said this and was clear on the fact he was aware of the easy schedule. I think he could very well be right.

    And...what a mess that would be - if Iowa was 6-6 or even 7-5 next year with that schedule. KF gets a big raise, 6-6 this year and the same next year?

    Fans won't tolerate that very well.

    How tough is the Big 12 if you take out Texas and Oklahoma?

    Re: McCoy cleared to play vs EIU

    IMO, this year, the Big 12 wasn't all that tough with Oklahoma and Texas.

    Of course - that would be comparing it to past years.

    Nebraska is gaining force w/each year, and Texas Tech is pretty solid lately. A&M has up years, too... We are by no means the SEC, however... :)

    Wisconsin seems ok usually, as does Penn State.

    Hell, Wiscy has a legitimate gripe about not playing in the national championship game.

    Re: McCoy cleared to play vs EIU

    Their schedule is not as easy as when we didn't play Texas or Oklahoma. How did that work out for us?

    Indiana and Northwestern seem to have given them trouble lately.

    They finish 7-5 and somehow get to the Outback Bowl again.
