Man, I can't believe how everyone here is talking just like a Hawkeye fan. As much as we hate to admit it, we would love to have the support and dollars that Iowa has. They can be jerks, but so can Cyclone fans. I support both schools with ISU being my main concern. No matter how big of joke we think Alford was he was successful against ISU. I am very happy with our new hires from the past 2 years and I think we will continue to make improvements in our programs. But I don't ever see us having the financial support Iowa has. I admit that alot of Hawkeye fans have never gone to Iowa. But that is good for them and bad for us. We need to develop the fan base outside of ISU graduates in order to compete financially. Barta has his first big challenge and it will be interesting to see how he does. But don't sell them short. They have an unlimited amount of money compared to ISU.
