“I don’t know whether to admire their loyalty or ridicule their incredibly low expectations.” Nice Mandel, another slap in the face. Loyalty is definitely a strong suit of HawkeyeNation, but to say we have low expectations after a young team wins 8 games and lose to teams with combined record of 40-5 (or something like [...]
BF better be careful, when you lose fans and blame game day on them vs winning, the wheels come off. Gameday is a direct correlation of not winning and not putting a product on the field that is not competitive. The reason why other venues are “rocking” is because they are winning, play up-tempo music [...]

I think it is time for a new head coach. Do you know we started every possession in Wisky territory the 1st 4 possessions and some how, some way, KF found a way to only score 6 points and also found a way to be losing at half?! How does this happen? It’s just time [...]
I understand that Meyer has his own self interest in this (keeping a player on the field), but that tackle was exactly by the books in “targeting”. 1. Defenseless player 2. Leading with the crown 3. Targeting the head 4. Lunging off the feet and no wrap up. The height and size of CJ has [...]
This entire mediocre Saturday football thing is getting old and frustrating- I remember when watching Iowa was great! After the Wisky fake punt at Kinnick, everything fell apart….seriously. MSU is the new Iowa and has the “wildcard” factor. Iowa doesn’t have the Big Ten Champion feel and for some reason feels like a distant memory. [...]
Also, CJB looked good, but to say because he has such a great arm doesn’t justify to start over Rudock if he losses at Minnehaha. Rudock has done enough through the first 4 to keep his job. There is a crazy statistic going around about how Johnny Manziel, RGIII and Rudock are the only 4 [...]

We sitting her talking about practice?! Practice Man? Practice? (best Allen Iverson improv)….seriously though if we are talking about a WR that can’t catch because he practices well. Then, KF gets what he deserves. To me this program has hit rock bottom since 1999 and I still cannot comprehend why KF doesn’t get the ball [...]

Charles, the “fat cow” you are referring to is floating the entire athletic department at The U of I for expenses along with basketball. The football program is 1 of 25 schools in the country to be able to do this. I would say a 9M improvement in any part of the football program is [...]
Also, for Barta to claim that UNI and SDSU beats Big Ten schools is like trying to pull wool over the eyes. Does he think we can’t see a 1-17 record that UNI holds. SDSU beat Minnesota who traditionally is not a good team either. What a joke. ESPN basically called him out. Barta handled [...]
I went to Iowa, I understand Iowa’s financial impact, I give money to the program, I understand business and I also understand an average at best AD that promotes FCS competition on ESPN. Please take note of a winner like Barry Alvarez. I can’t believe that Barta went on ESPN and flat out embarrassed Iowa [...]
Scheduling UNI= lose, lose. We win, we are suppose to. We lose, end of all, world is collapsing. Regardless if NDSU or UNI is competitive, there are plenty other D1 schools that should be scheduled ahead of these teams. Basketball, baseball and other sports have the ability to schedule 30 plus games per year and [...]
Sanji–your negative postings are now becoming comical in how much you hate Iowa football. I would suggest maybe another team to follow.
I would say that G. Davis’ NC Ring would justify he is at least decent at what he does.
Pete, you are wrong. Way off and wrong. MSU actually was a sinking ship and terrible calls kept them in the game. I think was obvious. I am not one to blame officiating, but lets be honest, that was really bad.
This game was ultimately decided by the worst officiated game I have watched while watching Iowa for over 20 years. I would hope the press, The Gazette or a Big Ten Official would step in an ultimately call this out. Please stop sugar coating this. This literally has to stop because although MSU had a [...]
Jay fits the typical ISU Fan which I expected. ISU Fans can say what they want, but in reality this is really a lose lose situation for Iowa. Iowa has significant downside if they lose this game and zero upside if they win. No matter how you slice it, this is the case. I applaud [...]
Tom, close but it is from Billy Madison. Great Line. Also, wischalk makes an excellent point. If you want to put your tail between your legs and hide because of two bad seasons, your not thinking correctly. This an an ABC National broadcast where only two teams in the nation are playing at that time. [...]
