Another thread that needs to be consumed in its entirety. Has it all. "Better team lost." "NFL Draft Conspiracy." Just spectacular
UL now ranked 19th in the AP poll (21 in the Coach's poll) after thumping us. We're now relegated to "others receiving votes." https://www.espn.com/college-football/rankingscyclonefanatic.com
In this analogy, ISU lives in a 100 year old trailer in the middle of a gated community. You tear the house down.An analogy would be like people acting like their house burned down when they had a small kitchen fire that just damaged their stove area. Yeah it freaking sucks and you have to replace the stove but you don’t tear the entire house down.
StinkyMcFadden said:People are acting like we lost to some crappy FCS team this way. It wasn’t good. No one is going to say differently. They are a really good team that would finish mid pack in the Big 12. We should have beat them but it wasn’t this monumental upset.

Yes we have a lot of stuff to work on. We have to figure out why we can’t seem to get those margins down. We have to figure out how to finish drives. We have to figure out how to competently run special teams. We have a ton to work on. We are still infinitely better off than we have been since at least the early 2000’s of not the 70’s or whenever we were good.
(*Technicality. Dad signed with Iowa, but never actually played for Iowa. Never lettered.)One of my favorite plays was when Purdy rolled out to his right.
Foster, whose dad played at Iowa but Iowa didn't offer, let his man waltz past him and he chased Purdy down from one sideline to the other while Purdy held the ball. Either the DE was wearing slippers or Purdy may be suffering from post COVID hearing loss.
It would. We are all Georgia State fans on Saturday.
It would be an uplifting turn of events for the Georgia State Panthers, whose quarterback you'll recall did not actually have post-covid myocarditis, but they thought he might have there for awhile.Oh I absolutely hope they get smoked by 45 by (checks schedule) Georgia State next week.
It's all they know...it's all they've ever known.....The At least we played or At least I got to see my team play a game today posts are odd. If the choice is not watching Iowa or watching Iowa get blown out by a mid-major (shit, low mid-major), I am going to choose not watching Iowa.
No one should want to watch their team get piss-pounded. What a sad fanbase if that is considered to be ok and preferable.
This whole thing is glorious
So where do we stand now on the OL?
Downing going down with an injury was instant disaster for the Clones today. His backup was clearly not ready to play. So: 1) Is Downing's injury minor, and will he be back for TCU. 2) What is the story on Hudson? Don't know if he was scheduled to start, but heard his name a lot as a...
One of my favorite random Twitter things after an ISU loss is how Blum will go radio silent after a loss (he tweeted two hours ago after not tweeting since the kickoff return TD). If they win, he is always tweeting out all these YPP stats and attendance numbers that are "shots" at Iowa.
