    Sure in 2013 TCU and Baylor were great, 2019.... not so much as they were back then.

    I think the narrative has been you always play a much easier schedule than us so should win more which is actually accurate

    Again, did you do any research whatsoever?

    Games started.

    Eisworth- 13
    Lewis- 13
    White- 5
    Johnson- 4
    Young- 3
    Bowens- 1

    At least try a little bit.

    Typically, that was because Iowa boosted ISU schedule. Now, ISU helps Iowas and with Nebraska, Purdue, and Minnesota improving it should all even out in the future.

    So if a guy started a game he is considered a starter? Not sure on your angle of replacing full time starters here.

    Michgan and OSU, yes I know other division and we do not play them every year. Not really our fault though.

    When you start as many games as a starter, you're also a starter; see Braxton Lewis on that list.

    So, ISU never was a bad game for Iowa? when they would go 3-9 or 4-8.... It is accurate. Now it helps boost it. as does the improvement of Purdue, Minnesota, and Nebraska.

    How so? You have stated over and over that Iowa's WR will be better this year than last year after losing your best WR and still haven't given a reason why you say that. I at least back up what I say

    So he was all conference DB? did not know that. I thought that was Peavy. I said starters that replace the caliber of players that left.

    The gap in SOS between Iowa and Iowa State since the Big 12 has gone to a round robin schedule has been so significant it's not due to one game

    I give the same reasons as ISU fans with regards to upside of current players and transfers replacing NFL guys. Which obviously is not good enough because only ISU can improve and have better recruits.

    Ohio State is definitely the big dog, but I'm not so sure of the second. I'd probably say Wisconsin. They've made the most Big 10 Championship games out of anyone in the conference since 2011 (5 times), even Ohio State (4 times) (playing in the B10 West helps). Michigan has yet to make a Big 10 title game since the new divisions have been set. And FWIW they've lost to OSU 16 out of the last 18 times, which isn't a good look.

    “There are usually 4-5 secondary pieces not just 2.”

    Oh so a team has to return all 4-5 full time starters to be in good shape.

    Got it.

    Now please find me one team in the country where that is the case.
