    Did you even take 10 seconds to look it up?

    Iowa State returns two safeties that started 13 games last year.

    That only counts when Iowa beats terrible teams like Indiana Purdue Minnesota Illinois.

    According to them, that’s the same as playing Oklahoma Texas TCU

    Now teams are, ISU was not a program that was good for years, and now they are pretty dang good, so teams are taking you seriously and you can not sneak up on anyone.

    Never did. Thinker is probably mixing Baylor and KSU up.

    Ok, bowl history is regarded as just bowl history. from here on out I think we need to talk in literal terms to avoid confusion, I will try to keep up boys, but not making any guarantees

    I'll agree with that statement but last year we weren't sneaking up on anyone. The year before that... probably a little. But last year, teams knew we were good.

    You forgot the other teams that are not good in your league that you get to play every year. Texas and Oklahoma are the 2 big boys in the big 12. everyone knows that.

    I think I used terms like "the last 10 years" and "recent history" to avoid the confusion but there is obviously a lot going on here so I understand why mixing things up could happen.

    But has to replace 2 corners. there are usually 4-5 secondary pieces, not 2

    This is such a bad take man... The only consistently bad teams in the Big 12 in recent history have been Iowa State and Kansas. We are now not bad anymore, we are good. Texas, Oklahoma, OSU, TCU, and WVU are all solid almost every single year, OU obviously being the best out of the bunch. Baylor and KSU have been very successful in the past 10 years, with Baylor being very poor for one year.

    The Big 10 West has been one of the worst sides of a conference in all of college football. That's inherently why Iowa was talked about being the fake ID of CFB, because the schedule was a cake walk.

    Name those teams that are consistently "not good" in the Big 12. Other than Kansas and previously Iowa State I don't think you are going to find a lot of consistently "not good" teams... Baylor, OSU, TCU, K-State, and Tech have all been pretty damn steady/good. Tech has obviously been a little more up and down than the others but never an easy game.

    It's also hilarious that MSU, Michigan, OSU, and Penn State are on the same side. Talk about a loaded Big Ten East. Imagine if Iowa State had coach Campbell and his teams when we were in the Big 12 North. Sheesh, we'd be like Wisconsin, being in the conference championship game every other year.

    Unfortunately for Baylor, their last good 10 years still doesn't erase all their prior years, where they were the bottom of the barrel. Hard to imagine them ever getting back to the level they were under Briles.

    That Fake ID thing was taken away by Cowherd after Iowa stomped OSU in 2017. not sure why it is used still, but that is what ISU fans like to say because of the 2015 season when Iowa did not play a great team until the title game.

    I mean Matt Rhule has already been a pretty darn good recruiter and even got looked at for some head coaching jobs in the NFL. If he stays there they'll be a solid team year in and year out. Not saying they're going to be where they were but they will not be a bad football team by any means.
