    The rumor is Jim Z was making excuese why Iowa has lost to ISU the past few years on Soundoff. Lucky, Iowa really has been the better team, there in no reason Iowa should lose to ISU, its ISU superbowl are some things someone told me he said about ISU winning in the past. I guess I have watched different games than him the past 12 years.

    You know... Most teams don't really want to win every game they play... Since Iowa is our super bowl we want to win that one... We don't want to win the others... It's pretty obvious.

    Oh, I do stuff
    Iowa
    Who ****in' cares.

    We've proven to be the better team on the field for the better part of a decade.

    I want to play Iowa like its our Super Bowl, cause I want us to play every week like it's our Super Bowl.

    Agreed.

    I would have thought by now, people would just ignore this blathering fool. Apparently not.

    No just the week that Iowa plays a real team. You know one better than their scout team.

    I usually never listen to sound off, but today I heard about 20 mins., and the "got lucky" talk came from a caller, not from Zabel. If during another part of the show Zabel called it luck etc. then I stand corrected.

    Iowa fans think he is god and will use what he said to argue why Iowa is better and should have one 25 in a row all week. Just giving you a heads up on what to expect.

    Soundoff is classic after an Iowa loss, but after a win I dont think I could stomach it after an Iowa win. I didnt hear it with my ears but it is what I was told, so take it as you will.

    Rivalry week produces absolutely nothing that is unexpected. Same stuff, different year.

    I'm pretty sure your rumor source either got it backwards or is making things up. Zabel is as big of a homer as there is anywhere, but he's not an excuse maker and he will flat out say when Iowa sucks like he did last year. It's the other guy on Soundoff (Jon, not Jim) who continually spews the nonsense about Iowa not trying, not showing up, ISU's superbowl, etc.

    One of the better ones will be a trailer for a sequel to Black Hawk Down.

    All I know is that my hatred for the Hawks runs pretty deep, I think we have a great chance to win in I.C. this year and I could not be more excited for this week. It is weird not being a student this year though....
