    Bull ******* ****. You are only here to argue. I posted a very complimentary article about Iowa's defense and thought it could lead to some interesting dialogue. Did you respond to it? Hell no. You are here to pull your pud and argue. Save us your sanctimonious indignation towards @CyTwins .

    Sounds like a down year.
    I do like Purdue's coach, and like I've said before, I think Louisville backs the truck up for him pretty soon.

    They would have to back the truck up to Petrino first. They owe him a $14 million buyout!

    It's clear that tOSU is still legit, they just ran into a buzzsaw Purdue team. I mean, sure, Purdue was 3-3 coming in, but they played the #1 SOS to that point, and had recently inserted a dynamic Freshman QB, and their offense is night and day different from the start of the year when they struggled.

    Meanwhile, we can also see that WVU is cleary overrated, they got beat by ISU, who was 2-3 with losses to a bottom feeder in the MAC and and Mizzou, who is o-fer in the SEC. Plus it's the same roster, same system as the start of the year, so it was clear just a fluke.

    By the way, it's Monday. Has Dwayne Haskins stopped staring down his primary receiver yet?

    I think that Athletic Dept is still wanting to clean house. Lamar Jackson was lightning in a bottle. I just don't see Petrino there in 2020.

    With such garbage schedules, I would be mad with anything less than league championships every other year. Especially considering how much you guys are paying him.

    Would be interested to see what kind of record would make you mad in regards to Iowa State's performance?

    Not a huge stats guy, but those things are just factoring the games that have been played, right? We've had a tough schedule, but everyone knows it's way frontloaded, and also our SOS benefits from the fact Iowa has been good. I think by the time Iowa plays Purdue and at Penn State, and as our ranking continues to improve, the two SOS will balance out.

    ISU will end up having a more difficult SOS this year even with Incarnate Word on there. Tech is better than Purdue

    WVU and Texas couldn’t handle Maryland or ISU, two teams Iowa blew out. Why would Iowa be scared of either of those teams?

    Re post it, I’ll respond. I said I wasn’t here yesterday and I literally missed hundreds of posts about Iowa, and I wasn’t gonna read them all, as I thought they were all same old same old. I even asked for any new discussions.

    I'm definitely not an Iowa fan but I have to admit they've got it going this year and I agree they could run the table. PSU will be a huge obstacle and I'm not sure what Purdue is after beating OSU but after that it gets alot easier. Wish we could play them again.

    They're at PSU this weekend. That should be a pretty good indicator if they are for real or not. B1G west is week this year.

    Garbage schedules? Lol... Iowa had a top 5 SOS last year and is #28 so far this year. No where close to garbage.

    Penn State struggled to put away Indiana. I think Iowa's biggest chance for a loss in conference play is @ Purdue.
