So you're telling me you root for Iowa State when they don't play Iowa?
I said before the Baylor game and after that I preferred that the Clones beat them. Root would be too strong of a word. Baylor is a cesspool as is Penn St and Mich St . All 3 should have been punished much worse. I don't like the Clones but that doesn't mean that I don't have some respect for your players and coaches. They've done things the right way and have improved your program. I'm not claiming to be the morality police whatsoever Its just my opinions.

Do you hope Iowa State wins tomorrow?

Alamo Bowl > Outback Bowl. Liberty Bowl > Pinstripe Bowl.

Iowa State played the #12 team last year and the #24 team the year before. Iowa played the #18 team last year and an unranked BC team the year before. So the past two years Iowa State has been in better bowl games, yet you're making fun of Iowa State and their bowl games lol.
I would say Alamo Bowl and Outback Bowl are pretty similar and Liberty Bowl and Pinstripe Bowl are pretty similar as far as tiers go.

Couldn't care less one way or the other. Didn't even know who they played until you told me. Taking my son on a UNI visit. They play South Dakota. I hope UNI wins.
Your son is being recruited for UNI football?

Huh. Congratulations. I have sons in two very different sports starting the process.
Thanks. We're just at the start. He has no offers yet. I'm secretly hoping he has a great baseball season this year and decides he wants to go that route. Supportive either way but your perspective on things def changes when it's your own kid. And fwiw in full disclosure he gets his athletic ability more from his mother than he does me. I was a half - ass high school athlete. Good luck with your kids.
