I agree, I could completely see Nebraska winning the conference for the next three years. I can also see the rest of the teams in the North being terrible in that time giving them an easy path to the title game (especially next year).
I wasn't taking exception to what you said at all, and you were most certainly right with your prediction for this season. I thought ISU would go 7-5 but that was assuming our touted offensive line would be more than cardboard cutouts of Larry Allen.
Garn has posted on this board for a long time and has wondered why he's been shouted down before. Well it's because he comes on and makes arrogant remarks about the NU program for no other point than to talk smack. There is a reason why this board is the only board I post on, because it is (thankfully) relativly smack free. This is exactly why do not like Nebraska. Trev Alberts saying that there is "no way" we will beat Nebraska in 2002. Let's face it, they are on the rise, but the mystique is gone.
Also, I understand what you are saying somewhat...but how can I be too ISU-centric? Why would I care what Baylor is doing, we don't even play them next year. My knowledge of their recruiting class isn't going to make a bit of difference about what happens on the field. I like watching the games and commenting on them, and taking a look at stats afterward to gauge how good the team is. I don't think this makes me a bad fan at all.
