Don't think they're the difference, but I think them being out will definitely have an effect on the game. We will probably play much more conservative, and have more mistakes, especially concerned about Hicks being out. Thursday I said 35 to 10 ISU, now I think I would go 21 to 10 ISU
That sucks. This is going to become more common at ISU and throughout the NCAA. The NCAA revised the APR rules to be much more stringent. If ISU has anyone else get into academic trouble we will be endangering our bowl eligibility.
No big deal. It is UNI. A 1-AA team. An interior lineman against a much lesser opponent is not a loss. Laing is not very good anyway and Darks hasn't produced since he was a freshman. Very little if any impact on the team. If this was a conference game, then there might be a bigger impact.
The problem with the "it's only UNI it doesn't matter" theory is it's the first game of the season. You just never know on the first game. There's a lot of nervous energy, people getting used to new roles etc. The chance of an upset is always worse on opening day imo. If we were 3 games in I'd agree no big deal, but I'm a tad nervous.
Plus now a key group of players has to go through the first game jitters and getting used to new roles against Iowa rather than UNI which hurts next week.
Does anyone know for sure if Money is in the group? I have a feeling if TheCity bought a plane ticket to see him after the good news about the toe and then finds out he is sitting due to missing class the old brother may take the younger brother out behind the stadium for a good heart to heart conversation.
