    Who would you rather beat, Iowa or Nebraska?

    This is a tough call for me...these are the two teams I most like to beat. A win at Nebraska would help us in the North, but a win against Iowa is sooo sweet. A hard call here...but I'd have to take the Iowa win. Other thoughts?

    Re: Who would you rather beat, Iowa or Nebraska?

    I like the Nebbie win more personally. Especially as of late when it's been Nebbie, CU, and us in the running for the Big 12 North. We beat them, we have a better shot at taking that title.

    I really think that a win at Neb would mean more for the program.

    Nebraska...it would be a more meaningful in-conference win.

    My brain says Nebraska, but the heart says the squawks

    Easy, Nebraska. I'll take a win over our biggest rival in the Big 12 instead of a win over our in-state rival any day.

    Nebraska without even having to think about it.

    This shouldn't even be a tough question. Nebraska, period. Stop living through the eyes of the hawks. Your life will be better for it. Think about the year they went to the Orange Bowl and their only loss was to us. Do you think the rational hawk fan would give up that loss to us for say a loss to Michigan? No way. Furthermore, it made them (and me actually) realize that our in-state non-conference game early in the season does not make or break either team.

    McCarney made a HUGE deal out of this game and most casual ISU fans bit his hype. It will be interesting to see how Chiz and his staff build up the UI game.

    NU any day- especially this year on the road. We need a North championship soon and man would it be sweet to get a BigXII championship in the next 3-4 years! Who's Iowa?

    Nebraska. It means more. They are in the Big 12 North, our goal to win. To win at Lincoln would be great.

    Re: Who would you rather beat, Iowa or Nebraska?

    Wow! No one cares about Iowa?? You can claim a conferance game matters more and all - but no event in the state beats this game, not the state fair, state wrestling, ragbrai, etc, etc. This is the event.

    I know one person that went to Nebraska and he doesn't care about football. I know 100's of iowa fans, and herds of diehards. Nothing beats them clamming up for a year after an ISU win.

    Again, Nebraska should be more important by all lines of logic - but sometimes Iowa is more important if for nothing more than one highlight that can last all year long.

    Re: Who would you rather beat, Iowa or Nebraska?

    I know it's a tall order right now, but I anxiously await a time when we expect to compete with every team on our schedule and are no longer happy with beating one of two versus our rivals.

    /soapbox

    That said, the intra-divisional conference game is more important. They're both fun wins, though.


    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.

    Re: Who would you rather beat, Iowa or Nebraska?

    Nebraska, and it's not even close.

    We beat number 8 Iowa in 2005 23-3. We lost in Lincoln in 2005 in OT. We were one game away from being in the Big 12 Championship. We ended up losing in the Houston Bowl to TCU.

    Which game meant more for our program?

    And then when you consider that a win over the Cornhuskers this year would get that monkey off our back of we haven't won there in like 30 years. It's Nebraska by a landslide.

    Re: Who would you rather beat, Iowa or Nebraska?

    Iowa is probably the most important nonconference game. However, I would take a conference win over the Iowa game.

    The goal is to win the Big 12. In order to win the Big 12 you first have to win the Big 12 North. Beating Nebraska goes a long way towards winning the Big 12 North. Beating Iowa may provide some momentum towards winning other games but it just isn't a conference game.

    Iowa because I like disagreeing with people.
