    Iowa is averaging 13 points a game against P5 teams not named Rutgers so they seem very vulnerable. Would love to see Gophers romp on them but it's likely to maybe be a low scoring affair determined on turnovers.

    Yeah you definitely don't learn much new from the analysts, I just enjoyed that ISU was a big enough deal that they came to Ames. I haven't watched since.

    Not sure my fellow Minnesotans would live through the excitement and heart stress that would invoke for them. :eek:


    Edit: Would love to see it though. Fans up here have not had something like that since maybe 1960 so the majority of them haven't seen a great football year. I get that. 50 years of Cyclone fandom leaves me with a lot of empathy for them. Yeah, just figured out I attended my first football game at ISU 50 years ago.

    Minnesota is the biggest ******* poser in all of college football.

    That's a really good point. Personally, I feel that Auburn has a better likelihood than LSU of being the "paper" tiger this year.

    p.s. Anyone else feel like the SEC just has waaaay too many Tigers?

    That's what you get when you have 14 teams, only 8 conference games and only 1 crossover game that rotates each year....you can easily have 3-4 undefeated or 1 loss teams.

    Can't hide in the Big12

    Minnesota is a paper tiger and no one cares about that program.
