    Do you suppose that was intentional to suggest the origin of the defense's fire?

    It seems like WRNL and Bleacher Report have a good working relationship, so I bet that's why they are talking about ISU in such high regard!

    Well, they did omit the ISU v. Iowa game from their list of Top 25 (30 actually) nonconference matchups (though Iowa v. Arizona made the list).

    If we're one of ten teams to keep an eye on, shouldn't a game between us and a top 15 BCS team in the non-con be of some interest?

    You might think so.

    Iowa vs. Arizona? Really?

    They must have run out of intriguing matchups before they ran out of places.

    This doesn't make Bleacher Report any more credible than it was, but I'll take some positive press.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
