    Re: win or lose take your pick

    I'd personally rather beat the team we SHOULD beat.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Beat NDSU. If we lose to them... oh man. At least if we lose to Iowa, they were a ranked Big 10 team and not another FCS team.

    Re: win or lose take your pick

    It's pretty close. Neither game is a conference game and one one hand, the hawks are our biggest rival just like we are theirs so it would be nice to shut them up for a little bit, but on the other hand it would be embarrassing to lose to NDSU. I really don't know.

    NDSU. It's Iowa's superbowl and they always get jacked up to play us more so than anyone else. So for me...we need to beat NDSU first and end the losing streak.

    Rather beat the Hawks. Both are non conf and we're more likely to get **** from them if we lose because there are a lot more of them around.

    If you lose to NDSU then beat Iowa all Iowa fans claim that it is your superbowl. Beat the teams you should beat. If you can beat others too then at this point that is gravy.

    Re: win or lose take your pick

    We absolutely have to win the one or two games we're favored in this season.

    This! I don't think we need these kinds of threads cause they make no sense. Start expecting more!


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    Re: win or lose take your pick

    In other words... is anyone here ok with having a crappy team that can beat Iowa? The answer is NO! This is proven fact. We drove a coach out of town who did just that... struggled with lesser competition, beat Iowa, and then struggled in conference. Again... NO!

    I agree. Very stupid question, no doubt.
