Early on this week, Hawkeye fans that I see on a regular basis were actually quite decent to be around for once in the week leading up to this game. Most thought ISU would probably win the game, and felt ISU was just a better team than Iowa this year. But as the week has wore on, they have resorted back to being the same old Hawk fans that are super cocky and arrogant again. It's as if they've now forgotten what the two teams did last Saturday. And I even see it amongst some of the media members over here on the eastern side of the state too. The CR Gazette's Marc Morehouse on Monday was predicting an ISU win. Now I wake up this morning and see in the paper that he's now predicting an Iowa win. It's nothing shocking whatsoever, but it just irritates the hell out of me. I would love to just win this game, no matter how we do it, but as this week has gone on, now I want to just lay a beatdown on these guys. I don't want just a one point win where all I will hear next week is how we lucked out. I want a dominating and convincing win..... something like 41-10. Sure, I will take any win, but I really believe that this year we are the better team. Outside of having a senior QB, I think Iowa is in a rebuilding year this year, and I think ISU is more experienced. If we play like we are capable of, I don't think a good beating is out of the question. But more than likely we will be in for the battle of our lives again since we don't usually play very well in IC. I just want to shut these Hawks up bad!
