So what is going to happen here when Iowa ends up rated higher in the final AP poll and final Sagarin poll this season?

Will we find a different metric to use or just accept the results?

But thats not an accomplishment. If ISU wins on Friday, then its an accomplishment.

Iowa was a FG from winning the B1G West last season. Thats not an accomplishment.

The accomplishment is winning 10 games and finishing top 15 in the nation.
Why does winning 10 games have to do with anything? If you finish top 15 with 9 wins you are calling it a failure lol?

Who said that?

Double digit wins is an accomplishment.

Finishing top 15 is an accomplishment.

Being in a position to win a game in November to qualify for the conference title game isnt really an accomplishment.

Just go win the game.

Defining hot garbage or rather what isn't.

To me you start with the top four then add teams as they beat someone no longer in the dung pile.

Big XII Starts with Iowa State, Oklahoma, Texas and Oklahoma State.

Kansas State gets off the pile by beating Oklahoma.

TCU advances to acceptance with a win over Texas

West Virginia gets home by throttling KST.

BiG begins with Ohio State, Indiana, Northwestern and Wisconsin and ends with those four until someone else beats one of those four.

Iowa is fortunate to still have one more opportunity to get off the stinky.
So you put Indiana on that list because? Wisconsin because? VS the opponents that Iowa has in common with those 2 teams hasn't Iowa performed better?

You seem irritated that starting the season 6-2 isnt being lauded as a major accomplishment outside of the ISU fanbase.
"Starting the season 6-2" lol it's November 25th. We're 80% done with the season.

Yep.....still have some big games left.
Yes.. but we've put ourselves into position for this game against Texas to be the game to go to the title.. That's an accomplishment. Being in contention in late November is an accomplishment on the season. Is it as big as actually getting there? No, but that's like saying making the AFC or NFC title game isn't an accomplishment because you haven't made the Superbowl yet.
