Iowa is bad this year. Plain and simple... But that doesnt mean ISU will beat them on saturday. You just never know with rivalry's and college football in general.
I've made several posts on the Rivals board stating I think the Hawks are going to lose by 10 so I'm not too confident. I'm hopeful Vandenburg plays much better this week being the game is at home but I don't see a lot of talent on the roster at this point. I do think things will get better with the younger blood on the staff but it will take a couple years to really get going.
Good luck this week.
Why cannot people understand that when you have a top 5 rated schedule in diffulty and you win ONLY 6 or 7 wins you are not mediolcre. When you win 6 or 7 wins against a #70 schedule, that is mediocre. Is the concept of weighted schedules really that far above peoples' heads? Winning 6 or 7 games against a top 5 schedule is really pretty damn good.

I just don't see Iowa putting up points
You have to recognize that the self worth of the majority of Iowa fans is directly correlated to the success or failure of their favorite team. They want to feel special, so they need to deny reality to achieve that. The poor little fellas don't have much, so let them hold on to their delusions of grandeur.
I know I'm getting old but, JC, I swear I looked at first glance at that thread title and read, "Iowa fan not very continent".
Iowa should have lost to a 1AA team a couple years ago and they ended up going to a BCS bowl.
I seriously wouldn't get to crazy about beating them in Kinnick. Their defense is going to be good, especially in the Redzone. We have a first year kicker on the Road in which we have not won the past 5 trips (10 years).
NIU is a good team as is Tulsa....
If our offense scores over 30 and we dont' make a bunch of stupid mistakes we will be fine.
