    i wish iowa vs iowa state happened during rivalry week

    in fact i wish the two schools were in the same conference. it just adds so much more intensity to the games. can you imagine how much more amped each school would have been this year had we played this past week?

    we would have had a chance to knock iowa out of the bcs, iowa would have had the chance to play their way (perhaps) into the bcs against a conference foe and bowl bound team. PR with a win could have made a strong case for coach of the year (big12) with a win over a top 10 team and rival.

    all those other rivalry games just made me jealous i guess. i think the rivalry would really heat up if there were more on the line. all it is for us is a non conference game with state bragging rights. for other teams it is so much more.

    instead, we sit home with no rival.

    Did you watch Georgia-Georgia Tech? That's about as intense as it gets, and they're in different conferences.

    Someone called in and was talking about this last night on channel 13 news. I like the idea.

    It worked out well for us in 2001, having it at the end of the season...I wouldn't mind seeing it moved.

    I don't think we need to be in the same conference, but the game does need to be moved to rivalry week. I can support this cause.

    Starting next year, Iowa will play Minnesota the Saturday after thanksgiving. The schedule only goes out until 2012, but I'm guessing they don't plan on changing that game.

    Re: i wish iowa vs iowa state happened during rivalry week

    I agree one with it being in the last week, and two with being in the same conference. there would be no doubt who was better if in same conference... ill vote to move to big 10 since big 12 = nearly impossible to win.

    I think the only reason they dont move it is because of weather, but we would have lots of decent weekends this late in year, and with this game i dont think weather matters.

    We played missouri our last game. That is kind of a rivalry. It would have a lot more exposure if ISU was playing for a BCS game, as was missouri, but we aren't so no one other than tiger/cyclone fans care...

    I've always wanted the Iowa game to be after Thanksgiving.

    The phone is the best trophy in the big12.

    I agree, I wish they would play the last weekend of the season. I noticed where Clemson Played South Carolina on saturday and those two teams play in difference conferences, so it can be done!!

    Re: i wish iowa vs iowa state happened during rivalry week

    the simple fact you said it's "kind of a rivalry game" proves that it really isn't a rivalry game at all. sure there is a trophy and all, but neither team, nor the fans treat the game like a rivalry game.

    our rival is iowa, plain and simple. there is not a team out there where each team has the same level of mutual hatred for one another.

    I am assuming you are referring to all other teams on our schedule and their impression of us. If you are not, then please refer to Auburn/Alabama, Texas/Texas A&M, Ohio State/Michigan, Missouri/Kansas...all mutually do not like each other.
