Gary Rheima ... When GR asked Walters how he felt about the UNI - ISU football series .. Walters stated, "it is good" and "should continue." Reasons: sellout game. keeps money in state which is good for UNI (Walters). Why can't we play Illinois or some other BIG school? Illinois reportedly has interest. IT would be a sell out game and if ISU loses ... not such an embarrassment. The ISU/Iowa series is between equal division teams ... So the old, "Iowa should drop the ISU game" blather does not apply.
