I'm a UNI guy and I'm tired of that shit. Iowa (and ISU) did UNI a favor for years by playing up there. Nobody is entitled to anything. I would like it if Iowa started playing a home-and-home with UNI, but I understand why it isn't going to happen.

Kind of a chicken and egg thing, but I wonder if we had less retards covering the Hawks, we'd have less retarded fans.

Typically the Iowa beat writers are on board with the 'Fran is a chicken shit' argument.

As Newsy points out, there is nothing wrong with UNI fans to want it, but it's absurd to think Iowa owes it to them.

As with ISU in football, this is just a weirdly Iowan thing. "They should play UNI!" Why? "Because they're located within the same state!" And?

Lotta overlap between anti-elite nobody is any better than me types (whom Iowa has a shitload of) and Iowa owes it to ISU and/or UNI to play them types, imo. Fuck Iowa State and, to a lesser extent, UNI. Iowa doesn’t owe them shit, and propping them up by regularly playing them is actually quite clearly to Iowa’s detriment.

It's almost like he's a young guy with new ideas and perspective.
It’s also almost like he isn’t a total slob that (semi-douchey profile pic aside) actually looks like a normal human being.

The fact that they want to play Iowa so badly and Iowa is uninterested, and the resulting outrage, tells you all you need to know about the natural pecking order within the state.
That one is in the Big Ten and the other in a mid-major league tells you that. This is a question for which someone needs evidence?

Outside of the like 9 completely deluded UNI superfans everyone knows the pecking order between the 2 programs.

Like Newsy said, I want UNI and Iowa to play for selfish reasons but I understand why it doesn't greatly benefit Iowa.

I have thrown Kakert under the bus so many times. But it is incredible how much less of a douche he is than Morehouse, Howe and Harty. I think his message board/website pretty well sucks, but he actually seems like a much better person (and much more comfortable in his own skin) than those three to me.

It seems like we are in similar boats, but I feel the exact opposite. I get no benefit from the game

In the year 2020 there is no reason for a big ten school to play at a Missouri valley school.

David Eickholt is considerably better than the rest of the beat writers.
Hadn't heard of him before the Luka PC. He asked some interesting questions, not just the obvious ones.

Conference holiday tournament in a bubble?

“We’re preparing for the season as if it will start normally,” McCaffery said. “I think we all have to agree that might not be the case. Maybe Jan. 1 is the magic date. Obviously, there’s a better chance of a vaccine by then.

“Will it be conference-only games? That’s a possibility. We’re all talking about a lot of different scenarios. We have the opportunity from Thanksgiving through the start of the second semester to maybe do a bubble-type event. Maybe that’s something we do.”

If it is delayed and they play later? Me.

You said there wouldn't be a season. There will absolutely be a season.
Not without looking like complete idiots.
