    Are we walking into this game with the biggest disadvantage ever in the series? It's common knowledge teams improve the most from week one to week two. I can't think of any other time where either team had the deck stacked against them like this. Damn lightning

    1977-1980 they played 4 straight games in Iowa city. That’s a disadvantage.

    Wasn't that the cost ISU had to pay to renew the rivalry? To get Iowa to agree to renew?

    Did not know that. Seems this would be the biggest disadvantage since 1980 then

    Biggest disadvantage was the teams we were fielding in the mid 80’s to mid 90’s.

    Fortunately for Iowa they had game 1. Offensively they looked unimpressive.

    Iowa has had much more home games than ISU.

    Iowa was definitely not good week one, but they were likely overlooking a weak MAC opponent to their game with us. If the Iowa State logo wasn’t on our jersey I’d say I think we still win. But when you figure how up for this game they will be plus the rust we will have it’s going to be almost impossible for us. We are usually at a big disadvantage because Iowa prepares all offseason for us, but this really makes it worse.

    Iowa has a big disadvantage as well... They're outmatched at nearly every position.

    No injuries. Players chomping at bit to play. Iowa no look at new guys. All of our suspended players back. Iowa fans unrealistic expectations after 3-o half-time lead. Seeing niu how pushed herky the turkey around first half etc.

    Quit making excuses.

    Right..which is why you play first game vs a NIU team that appears solid but their QB and offense in general was not good.

    I’m pretty confident Stanley will go off this week after a shaky week 1 and be like 30/35 and 5 tds or soemthing ridiculous then return to earth.

    Not having played a game vs a team that has...on the road...is a huge disadvantage. Think about what Iowa gets worked out...fixed the MLB spot...Found their RB..(t Young).. etc...etc..etc..

    We play that first game vs Iowa and i’m Going with ISU by 14+ honestly...Iowa offense and passing game was not good and their middle defense was not great (although missing 2 DT’s).. We would have lit up middle of that field.

    Now Iowa corrects all that and kicks off this Saturday a lot more comfortable.

    Y’all need to nut up and trust the process. CMC will have them ready to go.

    It has nothing to do with CMC having them ready to go. Anyone who is playing an opponent who has a game under their belt when they don't is at a monsterous disadvantage
