    Excuses

    If ISU wins this year, what will we hear from Hawk fans?

    This is ISU's Super Bowl?
    This game isn't important to them?
    They don't play well when they travel to the middle of nowhere?
    They're used to playing in front of 70,000 people and played bad because they felt no one was there?

    Just stuff I've heard in the past. We'll see what they can muster this year

    Re: Excuses

    Yeah, those crazy Hawk fans. I have yet to hear anyone use a personal foul penalty or a wet field as excuses from '08...

    Man, that's almost word for word what Keith and Andy said on Soundoff last night.

    I was about to say that. It is word for word too.

    More than likely this one.

    Maybe we'll play the Vandevelde is injured and Prater is suspended card.
    Maybe we'll find a poor call to blame on the officials.
    Maybe we'll say ISU didn't win the game, we lost it.
    Maybe we'll blame Ken O' Keefe for calling bad plays.
    Maybe we'll blame Norm Parker's bend but don't break defense for actually breaking.
    Maybe we'll come up with something nobody has even thought of yet.
    Anything but accepting the fact that another team is better. Anything.

    none. If we win - we may actually prove that ISU is making improvements and isn't second fiddle in the state.

    Re: Excuses

    The thing I'd be worried about if I were a Hawk fan is that they seem to be hanging their hat on their opinion that UNI is better than us, in order to make them feel better about their first game, and to make them feel better about the ISU game.

    What happens if we beat them? Won't that make them double-super terrible?


    Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

    Re: Excuses

    I dont expect excuses this year when we win because they should have lost to UNI




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    Re: Excuses

    KOK sucks, ref sucks, it's still jake christiansen's fault, it's the iowa city police that made the off season too stressful for the poor innocent players, the field was too wet because of the rain and the jack trice drainage sucks...

    I hope to find out but I'm thinking they're still digesting that big ol' piece of humble pie UNI fed them last weekend for them to get to cocky.

    The life coach was touching the players in a naughty way.

    Re: Excuses

    Well if Iowa wins... you normally hear "wow!, those cyclones are GOOD!" They're going to win some ball games in the Big XII this year! ...and how we should keep the rivalry going.

    If ISU wins... you normally hear (from the Hawkeye fans) "Where's our break-down?" ...is it coaching? ...Did one of our players get hurt? ...if we had our runningback...etc. and how "we don't need this rivalry game anymore." We need to play stiffer competition, like DeVry, and Buffalo, and D.M.A.C.C. you know, like Hayden Fry used to do. Flatten the 3 biggest cup-cakes he could find, and come into the Big 10 like a run-a-way train! Not to mention finding 3 more bottom feeders of the conf. and go to our Jan1, Bowl game!

    They will never accept the fact that they got beat by a better team... EVER!
