Of course its the whole rivalry thing, but mostly I'm upset because this is one of the few games of the year that I fully expect to win every single year. I was quite upset last year when we lost to Kent St, Toledo, and UNI, because I expected to win those games. This year, I honestly expected to beat Iowa. This isn't to say I expect to lose any game, but there are the games you expect to win, and those you know you know are toss-ups or it would be considered an upset or whatever. You see, I'm 29 years old, and my first year of college (1998) was the year we snapped the 15 year losing streak. Of course I remember from my childhood the Hayden era where they owned us, but since I have been an "adult", we have controlled this series. Because of this, I expect to beat Iowa more than any other team we play regularly. To explain my thoughts, here is our record since 1998 against teams we've played more than once or twice (not including this year): Iowa 7-3 Texas Tech 1-5 Texas 0-5 Missouri 5-5 Kansas St 3-7 Oklahoma 0-5 Nebraska 2-8 Colorado 3-7 Kansas 5-5 Baylor 3-1 Okla St 3-1 Texas A&M 1-3 UNI 4-1 So, excluding yearly changes (which are obviously very important), I expect to do well against Iowa, as we have beat them the most since 1998. We've also done well against Baylor, Ok St, UNI, Kansas, and Missouri.
