    It could be worse...

    You could be a Hawk fan thinking you were on a national title run again - slipping past those tough RedWolves thinking it was just a case of looking to next week all the while awaiting Northwestern or Indiana to burst your bubble :)

    And we still have a lot of football left and are 3 and 2 - let's GO STATE!!

    How is 5-0 winning 9 in a row and being ranked in the top 20 worse than what we are.

    I hate these freaking posts.

    We just lost to a team that earlier appeared to be the absolute worst in the Big 12. We are now the worst in the Big 12, again, after today's inexplicable loss.

    Re: It could be worse...

    I hate the hawkeyes with an intensity that knows no rival.

    But this thread is stupid, stupid, stupid. Even a dillusional 5-0 beats the **** out of 3-2.

    No offense, But seriously. I can't imagine anything but an ISU meltdown keeping the Hawks out of a bowl game. At most they lose 3 from here on out. I'd take my NC hopes being smashed and a 9-3 record over this loss and the hill we have to climb to get another win any day.

    I'm not too proud to admit that they are having a great season. They may play down to their competition but usually show up when they go against the big boys.

    I'd like to see how many ISU fans would give their left or right ### to have a typical Iowa season over the last 30 years.

    Nice try. It does suck to watch your team lay an egg and still get the win. Stanzi flipped the ****** today...nails in the first half, bad in the 2nd.

    The word for a movie storyline doesn't get through the filter?

    Re: It could be worse...

    or we could be florida and have a long list of all-americans, national titles, but have our quarterback have an injury.

    they are winning...we just lost to KSU.

    Kinda like saying you were drunk last night, went home and didn't get laid...but your buddy just nailed one of the hottest chicks in the bar...now he has to worry about being a dad. come on.


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    I'm trying to figure out what the "*****" is. I think its just a regular word, but it made me chuckle to think of the other possibilities.

    Well - and you forgot that is currently the 2nd longest winning streak in the country - most of them are UNI or ISU grads (from personal experience - the majority of my family roots for Iowa having gone elsewhere) and trying to associate yourself with something you aren't and then having hopes dashed all the time makes me laugh.

    That Northwestern, Minnesota or Indiana loss or even an average Michigan or Wisconsin team still keeps them down to earth - and all of them agonize worse than I do over a loss. And I WENT to the damn school I root for!!!

    That's how its worse. At least in my opinion. I have Texas club seats but don't say I'm a Horn - it's just the best dang entertainment in town - I don't live or die by them.

    Hawk fans I know can't differentiate that - I'll take an ISU bowl any day - it will be SO sweet compared to that.

    Re: It could be worse...

    I read that Iowa hasn't given up a rushing TD since Penn State..........last year.

    I just wish that we could have a D like that.

    It would allow your O to lay an egg, like we often do (as do the Hawk's offense) and still win an ugly game.
