No, its one of those deals where we have to be consistent on the field to earn the respect off of it. We still lack that.
I get that, but we were slightly favored against Northern Illinois 2 years ago in our opener. Northern Illinois had a better team than Tulsa does this season, and ISU has a better team then they did 2 years ago.
UNI last year, could have/should have lost
Up 17-10 on NIU in the 4th before pulling away. Scary game though
Close game going into the 4th against NDSU
Played like garbage but thanks to 5 TO's we beat a bad SDSU team
Lost to Kent State
Needed OT and Blythe going beast mode to beat Toledo
Tied at half against Illinois State and only won by 11
I don't know if any of those teams are/were as good as Tulsa. Good thing we are better too.
If ISU loses to Tulsa, CF would shut down due to epic meltdowns. It would be catastrophic.
lucky for us, they have Cody Green

If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls
