I have a strange feeling we’re going to break the streak in Kinnick next year. Why? Because nobody will be expecting it. Iowa is going to be ranked in the top 25 and we’ll be in what’s viewed from the outside as a rebuilding year.

The Hawks will probably be favored by around 10 points but they’ll finally cough up the ball a couple times against us and we’ll win by a touchdown. That’s my prediction.

It’ll be a nice win for us on our way to a seven or eight win season despite the rebuild. For Iowa, it will be the first of a number of disappointing losses despite their preseason hype, as they finally face Ohio State and Michigan next year and won’t benefit from being plus ten bajillion in turnovers on the season.

I see some have progressed to the bargaining stage of mourning. The OP smacks of "everything will be okay bc disappointment is gonna happen to the Hawkeyes next year"

I probably think about the Hawks a lot less than the average ISU fan because I live on the West Coast and don’t have to deal with the in-state crap on a regular basis. I just had a random thought about this game tonight while thinking about next season.

For the record, I think we win seven or eight games next year. I think we start 3-0, win three of the five conference home games, and split the road games (beat Kansas and somebody else).

I think we:

*Go 3-0 against SEMO, Ohio, and Kansas.
*Go 3-2 at home in conference play - BU, KSU, OU, TTU, WVU.
*Go 1-3 on the road against P5 opponents not named Kansas - Iowa, OSU, TCU, UT.

7-5. So I agree with how you think.

Don't forget, the game is in September.

Doesn't the conference change next year?

I'll believe it when I see it...Iowa State and September don't mix well...and a disgusting fact is that we haven't scored a td in Kinnick since 2014

I jokingly said "watch us win in Kinnick when no one expects us to next year". Didn't believe it would happen when I said it and still don't.

Its still unclear right now. But based on publicly known information, Texas and OU will be playing in the Big 12 next year. Although, its very possibly that they pay up and announce they will leave after this year.

I don't have a clue what will happen at that dump next year. I only know I won't step foot in that city again. Who wants to be subjected to that kind of abuse?

I've often thought, "I'll bet people do drugs and then post on CF."
I’ve often thought, “The worst thing about CF is that half the posters on there make it their mission to try to out-smartass each other.”

Is it just me who never gets abused at road games? I hear horror stories all the time and have yet to experience anything more than good natured **** talk. Sometimes I think fans have some pretty thin skin.

My Hawk friends always tell me how horrible they are treated in Ames. Oddly they couldn't point out a single issue this year when I was with them. Funny how that happens
