    Personally, I think we should shift the conversation to topics more pleasant than today's performance. Such as politics, sewage treatment and colonoscopies.

    2 turnovers. That was a Physical Big 10 type team. We are obviously not quite ready for that type physical strength along with athletic ability.

    Notre Dame is K-State and Iowa only with better players. Campbell still refuses to figure out teams like that so no surprise we got destroyed today.

    Exactly. If you do weed, you risk thousands of Iowans spending money on bowl games instead of donating their precious dollars to something that has value.

    After watching us get competely out played in every facet of the game I'm going to bet my house for LSU to cover because any team that let's us play with them is going to get destroyed by the #1 team.

    It didn't like the physical mismatch of previous coaching staffs but there was a physical difference at spots.

    Agree but stop this "we are Iowa State' attitude. Very depressing game and feel bad for the players because by watching the game it didnt appear the coaches
    put them in a position to win the game.

    Have no idea what you mean, but I'll take a stab at it. Those teams attempt to win turnover battle, run the ball, and stop opponents run. 1] Lost two fumbles. 2] ND had better Oline. They completely controlled our defensive line both running and in pass pro.
    GAME OVER! In simple west coast terms we just ate a bunch of [​IMG]

    He can hang with faster spread teams like Baylor and Oklahoma but can't compete with bigger, physical teams that control the ball and play good defense.

    Its actually similar to basketball, they always run KU out of the gym but then struggle with taller, physical teams like Texas Tech and Baylor who slow the game down and play good defense.

    Except this is the only year outside of 2016 that ISU really got throttled by KSU (although I'll concede that for 3 quarters last year it was all KSU).

    Notre Dame had more talent than those teams and it showed. Can't beat a better team when they play better and your team isn't too sharp itself.

    Have you considered that neither KSU or Iowa got up by 21 points at any point? And that ISU had several chances to beat Iowa. Purdy fumbled vs. them, and oh look, he fumbled today.

    The 'margins' HAVE to be a focal point next season.

    I never said they were getting blown out by those teams but going 1-7 against them isn't cutting it either. Last year they needed a miracle comeback just to beat a clearly less talented K-State team.

    That was worse....and history has shown that the lack of urgency in response to that did indeed waste 4 years (retaining Mess and then Mangino) and millions of Iowans' dollars that could have been put toward a positive and permanent program culture.
    This was not good though....and the recruiting momentum is the biggest casualty. Stating the obvious I guess.
    It would be sweeet if Hoiberg lost to AMCC.
