    Can you believe it? Hawkeye Play by Play announcer made that statement after the game, talking about how tough WM really was. What a reach! This was a 3-7 team from a below average conference.

    Iowa and the rest of the Big 10 are sub par this year, no matter how anyone slices it. Period.

    Especially Iowa.

    Well... they are now 2-0 against Western Michigan at HOME in the last decade!!!
    I know weve lost to lesser teams, but we dont have a $3 million coach in his 9th or so year. I dont even think McCarney couldve lost that game.

    Yes...sadly, I have no problem at all believing he said that. In fact, I expected it.

    Do I personally buy into that - NO WAY. Can I believe that reason was used - of COURSE!! My whole life, the Hawk fans that have surrounded me are of similar ilk, with similar reasoning. Excuses abound - the reality of their mediocrity is too hard for them to come to grips with. But then, I just attribute it to the edjicashun they are getting at that school.:biglaugh:

    Kirk remains one of the best coaches in the country. At least with the o-line he had 4 or 5 years ago.

    Why did they even play the game? Iowa had nothing to gain from it.:yes:
