    I thought CMC was concerned more with the bowl game, not the Big 12?

    Too much over analysis of this loss in this thread. Just a classic trap game phenomenon that's all. Isu was caught looking forward to the sooners and furthermore cmc handicapped himself by calling a vanilla O. The proof will be seen next week. I'm expecting isu to beat Oklahoma at home to the tune of around 31-21.

    Prove me wrong then. Show me all the highlights in the first 3 quarters of ISU even throwing one deep ball. There wasn't any. Show me the WR screens we run all the time and scored a 55 yd TD with against SDSU the week before. There wasn't a single one even attempted. Show me where we tried to ever isolate an Iowa LB on one of our RBs out of the backfield. There wasn't any.

    We tried almost NOTHING. It was a complete and total failure on CMC's part calling the plays he did.

    But congrats on stopping us running up the middle all day and never even attempting to stretch the field vertically or horizontally all day. Wait... we did throw deep to Butler late in the game... oh, and Iowa's DBs couldn't handle him and had to mug him and we got a PI penalty. Hmmm.... I wonder why we never tried that in the first 3 1/2 quarters? I guess CMC was intimidated by your 5'10" DBs covering 6'6" Butler and 6'4" Eaton, but who knows the hell why? Not me.

    TCU will be a much better defense

    What are you talking about? If he doesn't try in conference play he won't get in a bowl game

    I don't know about "better", but they will be a lot faster. That's why it boggles my mind we didn't even attempt to stretch Iowa's D out vertically or horizontally. We beat OU doing that last year, but CMC tried to beat Iowa without showing OU anything or something? Dumb move.

    I'm not sure how much CMC tried Saturday. It was pretty obvious they were looking ahead to Oklahoma IMO

    You know what's sad? The way Jamie Pollard tried to schedule a game with Drake and then asked the NCAA to drop the bowl eligibility bar to 5 wins because ISU had to cancel a game.

    You guys hate Pollard. We love Barta. That explains it all

    You guys are so awesome. You seriously think your coach wasn't trying. That is amazingly awesome.

    Gotta hurt when your own coach says your OL and DL got dominated. Ouch.

    I'm sure he would have rather won but he's focusing on Oklahoma and conference play. We'll go vanilla again for Akron

    If CMC said our DL got dominated he would be wrong. He's right about the OL though

    What's wrong with all that? There really aren't many options at all for getting a 12th game back on the schedule, and obviously we really need that 12th game for player development.

    So your coach doesn't know what he's talking about. Got it.

    If he thinks our DL got dominated he was even more checked out of the non conference game than I thought

    I thought you were a Campbell loyalist.

    The avatar curse has struck again.

    I love Campbell and I honestly like his philosophy on focusing on conference and bowl games but that leaves the blame on him for losing in the non conference.

    I think he believed we could win the game without showing OU any film just based on the fact we're the more talented team. The problem is he underestimated how much this game means to the Iowa football program and that trumped the talent advantage IMO
