    We also get called a gimmie in the Nebbie section. We have to earn it if we want to get to the top of the mountain.

    Re: Schedule strength

    The grading of those schedules seems really random. Oklahoma State hosting Georgia is an A while Georgia Tech hosting Georgia is a B+. There are inconsistencies all over the place.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    It's a sliding scale based on the expectations of the team. So, they expect Georgia Tech to be better than Oklahoma State.

    I'm not so sure about that. OSU is expected to be prety good. I think it's more due to the fact that Georgia Tech is still in Georgia.

    We do the same thing when we see patsies on our schedule. We're a patsy until proven otherwise.

    Since 1997, when have we proven to be a pasty for Iowa? Maybe 2003.

    I'm confused, since when does past history factor into how tough an opponent is viewed on the national scale?

    Unfortunately for Iowa and Iowa State, the national media could care less that this is a rivarly game or about ISU's past success in this game. All they see is a team that finished the season 0-10 last year and predicted to finish in the basement of the Big 12 again this year.
