    Re: Oh Oh ... I don't like how this is setting up

    what i dont understand is how there would be "scheduling conflicts". wouldnt iowa still play the same amount of conference games no matter how many teams join the big (enter number here)? you still play at least three non-conf games..this makes no sense!

    That is all just fancy talk for "Look, we just got a harder Big 10 and this game just got more dangerous with ISU now looking CUSA in the face. We would really have nothing to gain and everything to lose so we would not want to play this game anymore". There is absolutely no "scheduling conflict" that couldn't be worked out if they wanted to....they just won't want to and I can kind of see there point...


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Personally, I don't give two ***** if we continue to play Iowa or not. Is it a fun game early in the season? Sure. But I won't lose sleep or shed a tear if they get replaced with someone else.

    Re: Oh Oh ... I don't like how this is setting up

    That's fine. We can find someone to play us. We are perceived as a doormat so I am sure a big program would like to play us. I just want JP to make sure he makes it very clear in public that Iowa doesn't want to play this because now they know we can beat them, not because it is scheduling.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I don't think we have to worry about JP bringing this up!

    Re: Oh Oh ... I don't like how this is setting up

    Did anyone even actually read the article. 90% is about how it makes sense to keep going. 1% is about how there is a clause in the contract that could be exercised if necessary and 9% is the Register trying to make it more than it actually is.

    Exactly, most of it is Barta saying there is no reason to think it won't continue right now.

    You can tell the rest of the interview was the Register just going "yeah, but.. yeah, but... yeah, but.." until they got the scenario with the answer they were looking for.

    Register: "Yeah, but Gary, what happens if the Big Ten requires you to play 17 conference games a year?"

    Barta: "Well, yeah, I suppose then we would have to stop playing ISU."

    Lets translate Barta talk: If ISU is stuck in a lesser conference and goes downhill, we do not need to risk our bowl to play them.

    Wow, not how I read that at all. Seeing as he goes out of his way to say culturally and financially it makes sense to continue. And only brings up canceling the series after being repeatedly asked by a rag writer who is trying to make a story out of NOTHING.

    Looks like you so not uunderstand the ramifications if we are stuck in the WAC. We would not be worth the risk to play culture or not.
