You think I can listen to a 20 minute podcast by Jon Miller?
Jon Miller thinks Iowa > Bama, for the record.
Yeah, I'm not going to that website.
Turns out you typically lose to much better teams
And ISU > Iowa too, just because I say so, right? Ok Jon.
OK, I started it just out of curiosity and literally within the first 10 seconds, he is blabbering about Iowa is the better team and gave the game away. That is where I stopped listening. He probably just recycled this podcast from the Stanford game . . . .
8 minutes was all I could stomach. What a whiny, excuse making, little *****!
Iowa 2-6 last 10 seasons versus Wisky. Wisky hasn’t lost in Kinnick since 2008 (11 seasons ago now after last night). Didn’t play 2 seasons in that span despite it being a ‘trophy’ game. Maybe it wasn’t yet a trophy game, i don’t know.
Direct quote from this
“This game was for the Rose Bowl”
The f’ing rose bowl is not decided in the 4th game of the season, Jon
This is a trophy game. Somehow, Iowa play in 4 games with a trophy every year (ISU, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Wisconsin)
Sure, Wisky caught a break on that freaky touching by the Iowa player on the punt, but they took advantage of it too like good teams do.
And in the last half of the 4th quarter Wisky and Hornibrook made all the plays and Iowa and Stanley did not.
Iowa fans need to remember that even with that fluke TO, they still had the lead and seemed to be in control of the game. Wisky just made that one drive at the end that the better teams make, while Iowa couldn't.
I found it on a badger board. Listened to 5 minutes.
Here is what I heard;
Better team lost
Badgers didn’t win herky lost.
Fat Stanley was having best game of career.
Newly appointed rival Rutgers will need to be a trophy game, any ideas for the themed trophy? Both have good pharmacy programs.
When Wisky needed to, they moved right down the field. Hornibrook had all day to throw, they could have thrown at will all day IMO. Iowa's offense has reason to think they outplayed Wisky but on defense, they got worked.
Got off my ass & ventured out onto the web. Trophy was created in 2004 despite the series not being every year (Wisky did not play Iowa in 2 seasons straight not long after the trophy was created). So it is as I thought, a somewhat contrived rivalry.
Badgers and gophers are bigger rivals with each other than either is with Iowa. Iowa believes they are the biggest rival of each, but are not when you talk to the gophers or badgers.
I cannot stand the 'we gave it away' excuse. For any team.
