    Are you arguing that Iowa is 4 points better than Iowa State despite beating them by 1 point?

    So you think Stanley has been on par with Epenesa this year?

    I understand what you're saying, and it makes sense in regards to betting, but it doesn't change the score at the end of the game. If Iowa wins by 3 this weekend in Iowa City, the game doesn't then go to OT because they're at home. If Penn State wins by 20, they don't actually win by 23.. they won by 20.

    As long as we are making numbers up we have a better passing game and the weather conditions easily cost us 5 points, so we are now 1 point better.

    Of course not. The result is the result but home field advantage can be taken into account in determining the beter team.

    Beating ISU at home by 1 isn’t as worthy as beating them by 1@ trice. Pretty simple

    It would be nice if home field advantage didn't include getting ****** on a phatom holding call at the end of the game.

    Iowa State is historically bad at mid-afternoon games played with a rain delay. Cost us 2 more points. We are actually 3 points better.

    This is fun.

    So home field advantage means nothing at Trice? Good to know

    It is one of many variables that go into the one game we play a year. If you want to consider home field advantage, you can also consider weather, injuries, delays, calls, etc. That's why it's stupid to try and quantify as you were doing.

    Sure it's more impressive on paper but you can't add and subtract points after the fact and justify the end game score lol. It'd be like saying Iowa only lost by 4 points last weekend instead of 7.

    I mean I would say Epenesa is currently mired in mediocrity

    Most reasonable folks agree that winning on the road is tougher than at home.

    We’ll just have to agree to disagree on that.

    Handicappers, as in people who help make betting lines? Did you guys cover against us, then?
