    Nobody is downplaying the game, we are just saying its not the most important game on the schedule for either team. OU and Texas are both bigger games, because they are conference games and both school will ranked higher than Iowa when we play. The Iowa game is important for three reasons, 1. improve instate recruiting, 2, get a win for Campbell in the series, and last ability to talk smack to the Iowa fan base, relatives and friends that support the Hoks.

    The game is at home, I think we will win this year, but its not anywhere near the most important game of the year, not even close.

    I'm not sure anyone is downplaying it rather just pointing out it's a lose/lose situation for us

    Campbell has done quite well recruiting in Iowa despite going 0-fer against TOE. Imagine what our instate recruiting would be like if we beat Iowa 3-4 times in a row.

    We could cherry pick and leave the rest for the Squawks. Much like Iowa has done to us for 20 years.

    As long as Ferentz is there and they are putting guys in the NFL, they will do well recruiting instate.

    1998 called, they want their fan back.

    Biggest rivalry? Duh. Biggest game? No. Maybe it would be if we were in the Big 10 too, but we have bigger fish to fry nowadays.

    You win and it's expected but if you lose (which is a higher probability since the emphasis KF puts on the game) and everyone across the country sees a loss to a Big Ten West team

    So basically you're using the same tired, worn out argument Iowa fans have said over the years and switching the teams. Got it.

    Tell you what - compare the demand for tickets for the Iowa game at JTS compared to Texas or OU. It's not even close. Even our own ticket office charges the most $$ for a ticket to the Iowa game.
    Our game against Iowa is the most important game for our fan base. Please.

    I know its popular for each fan base to try and pretend who cares the least about this game, but I hope it continues for many years. Realignment killed a lot of rivalries (West Virginia-Pitt, Texas-Texas A&M, Nebraska-Oklahoma), and while the Iowa State-Iowa game isn't on the level as those games were on a national scale, its still a big game. Rivalries make college sports fun.

    I'm sure the number of Iowa fans who attend compared to OU or UT has nothing to do with it.

    Anyone saying this is a lose-lose for either team is lying to themselves.

    I would not argue with the idea that this game is the biggest for the fans. I don’t think it’s the biggest for the teams though.

    The Iowa game is not the biggest game for Iowa State fans

    Attendance is not solely driven by Isu. This is very much Econ 101.

    Just my opinion. Your football coach said it's the biggest game for you guys, ours didn't

    I see. I thought you were much more declarative than just giving your opinion. As far as the biggest game for Iowa, whatever, you do you.

    That's what KF said. Not an opinion
