    Losses, @Iowa St, @Michigan, and one of the scabs of the West will pick us off.

    But the West teams we will beat that will matter and determine the race, Wisky and Nebraska.

    We will win the head to head, beat the shit out of the East rep, and play Oregon in the Rose Bowl.



    Prove me wrong.

    I hear what you're saying.

    Here's my counter argument.

    No.

    Ya but I’m one who thinks we should have won the West last year so... I’m going to put that on the coaches.

    I can’t prove you wrong but I’m pretty sure that the Iowa football team will..

    Love your optimism though, you guys are much more suitable at a party than debbie downer is..

    There's no doubting that Iowa has some highly skilled players. Epenesa, Jackson and Wirfs are all going early in the NFL draft. Iowa finishing 10th in the B1G in rushing last year was a pretty telling stat for me. I'm just not that impressed with Stanely. He's not a bad QB by any means, and he has moments of brilliance. But I've also seen him over throw an open receiver too many times to be wowed. I think Iowa needs to re-establish their running game to really compete for the crown.

    13-0 or bust or whatever gets us into the playoffs.

    Fair, but we just had 2 TE's drafted in the 1st round. Hence our running game being 10th. We use our TE's as an extention of the running game.

    Unbeaten teams are gone. The playoff will go to 8, and we will find a true champ. With how bad ass CFB is, you cant expect teams to go unbeaten anymore. Its just to tough.

    Three did last year plus we have sport that doesn't encourage strong OOC scheduling.............not that I'd upset if you were correct.

    Iowa will win 8 games and not be in the Big Ten title game.

    Why would you choose the more boring scenario that doesn't help college football in the grand scheme?

    Wirfs and Jackson should NOT go pro next year.

    Nelson shouldn't have gone either this past year.

    Tempting, but I'd choose a Big Ten Championship first over Columbus strange bribery in exchange for letting another team win the title.

    Thanks for the offer though........

    Who counts as “playing someone”?

    Alabama best Georgia
    Notre Dame beat Michigan

    And Clemson ultimately shithoused both Alabama and Notre Dame.

    I will give ND credit for trying, but the rest are shooting fish in a barrel and lucky.

    Pretty self explanatory. Iowa has no effect on the grand scheme of college football.

    Heard the Iowa radio announcer on a local station today and he paints a promising picture. Had no idea than Ferenz was #5 all time in Big 10 wins, behind only Stagg, Schembechler, Hayes, and Paterno if I recall correctly.

    ^^^^This. I am agreeing with BleedRed here^^^

    There's a reason for all the screen passes and TE patterns.

    BTW, Mississippi St had a nasty D. And we won with sticking to the run, and TE's.


    MSU's D reminds me of LSU's. Fast and tough.
