Big day for Iowa. BIG, BIG day.
The last time that I can recall Gameday being in IC was in the late 90's when they faced OSU. Tim Dwight was in an Iowa uniform yet even he couldn't help the Hawks enough.
OSU took off to an early lead. Iowa made a run in the 2nd half - sparked by an amazing punt return for TD by Dwight, but it wasn't enough.
I'd love to see Iowa win the game...seriously. Good for them if they take down Ohio State.
They'll need a near-perfect game in order to do it of course.
All of the above.
OSU wins hands down, but goes on to lose several games due to the absence of Troy Smith, who is hit by Tate's thrown helmet and falls into the puddle of Tate's tears that has accumulated in the depression left by him pounding his fists on the ground during his 3rd tantrum.
I think Iowa will win this one 31-28. We better hope that both Iowa and Texas run the table in their respective conferences. ;)
One thing that noone in the hype machine is talking about, is what effects will Iowa have from playing in about only their 3 night game ever? Kurt Fahrents lives off repetition and predictablity. How will playing at night alter their play. Night games are a totally different atmosphere, and if they arent used to it, that might throw em off more than anything.
These morons are so sheltered, they cant have their Soundoff after the game, its on before?!? I guess ol man Zael cant be out too late, without a change of depends. Why even have it, itll be a bunch of predictions and what ifs. And they also cant Tailgate after the game? We sit in our space for at least an hour at Trice. Its not like weed move anywhere in out car. Thank god im a Cyclone!
score- whatever it is, i hope the Buckeyes cover the spread and blow them out.
I dunno, I always thought perhaps we should consider ourselves THE Iowa State University.... insinuating we are the one true university in this state and EIU is well, just that, EIU. I mean really, besides being a cupcake on football schedules, how often do you hear of the university of ohio? I mean has frank solich really put them on the map yet?
I just can't see Iowa keeping up with OSU.
Iowa State and Iowa looked evenly matched in their game. There did not seem to be a gap in the talent of the two teams.
We played Texas and personally, I thought the Longhorns looked a step ahead of us most of the time. They were bigger and faster. The only shot we had at winning that game was to be perfect and hope Texas played sloppy.
Ohio State beat Texas! Iowa is going to be in for a similar experience, in my mind. Iowa needs to be perfect and hope that the Buckeyes screw up at the most opportune times.
OSU 35 Iowa 14
PS -- In the spirit of all things good for the state of Iowa, I will cheer for Iowa in this game. Cy have mercy on my soul.
Yeah I forgot that Iowa is just terrible in night games I don't think they have aver won a night game. Smith is going to tear Iowa up with the QB draw worse then Meyer did.
Actually, Iowa trounced Wisconsin a few years back during a nationally-televised night game... the same year that Wisconsin nearly went 11-0.
OSU: over 40
UofI: under 20
