    Iowa Game

    This week is in NO way an easy win as some people are saying. Our defense is terrible, and we scored 34 points on a respectable (but not very good) FCS team. The only way I see us winning is if we put up 30+ this weekend.

    Re: Iowa Game

    I've seen more of the attitude that we can win the game, versus we will win the game, and I have yet to hear anyone say it will be easy.

    What the other two have said. Haven't seen a single post saying it should be an easy win. No win over Iowa should ever be an easy win going in.


    I removed it.

    Re: Iowa Game

    Wow, if I get at all optimistic about the game I hop on this board and am quickly reminded how bad we suck. Goodness, people, I know we are not Floridia but be a fan and start looking for reasons for optimism rather than talking about how bad we suck.

    Re: Iowa Game

    Is any game an easy win? No. I do think we will put it to them though...Rhoads will have them well prepared

    Excuse me.. people have not said easy win.. but I have seen people say 14-17 point win. And in my mind, that is absurd

    solution-don't hop on this board.

    it's been a bad 3 years for us clone fans, and the spirit has all but been broken-and it shows to the fullest extent right here on CF. we just simply haven't had/don't have many positives to talk about.

    i feel as though i am in the minority (on CF at least) that still wants to view us as a team that can go out and maybe pull an upset, or win a close game that we should win-that goes for football and basketball. however, we just haven't done either of those things in a long time.

    until some of these things start happening on the reg, it isn't going to change here.

    Re: Iowa Game

    show posts were people say easy... sure some may be overly optimistic.. i for one am optimistic, it will be a close game, and i truly believe that we are goin to win. But you never know how the cards will fall, if iowa can't find there offense, and our defense plays a good game, a 14 point victory isnt impossible.

    I know its not impossible but for some people who just say I expect a 14 point win is a little over the top
