98% of the people that tweet things like that have <50 followers and even fewer friends.
I can find you lots of people that are just as stupid with thousands of followers and many friends.

It’s hard to make much of the computers this year. I usually favor the, but the B10, SEC, P12, MAC, and MWC are closed systems. The ACC and Big 12 only had one nonconference game. It’s impossible to make valid comparisons between leagues.

Bowl Games still seem to be, at the moment, going forward for most of them. It sounds like the key difference this year will be that instead of flying in a week before and practicing on site and attending different team events that it will be structured more like a normal regular season game where you fly in maybe the day before and play it like you would any neutral/road game.

Still a lot of season to go, but for at the moment I have seen Iowa projected in the Duke Mayo Bowl in Charlotte against North Carolina.

If Iowa can run the table including beating Indiana they could end up at 7-2 and in the Citrus Bowl against someone like Georgia.

other than the somewhat embarrassing title sponsor I wouldn’t mind the Charlotte game just to get an ACC opponent for variety. They only have 20 games against ACC teams ever and a lot of those were against Miami/Pitt/Syracuse before they even joined. They’ve never played someone like UNC or VT and barely have played NC State

If they aren't in the Citrus Bowl, agree with that. Playing an ACC team in Charlotte would be nice.

ESPN also has a projection of the Guaranteed Rate Bowl (the old Insight Bowl in Phoenix) against Kansas State. No thanks on that.

This shit pisses me off because my favorite thing about bowl season is getting to play teams you rarely if ever get to play. Iowa plays Iowa State every year. Let it go for 1 year.
there‘s such a disconnect between the local media people and fans on this. They all thought people would do double game trips in Orlando or Nashville/Memphis, too.

Iowa the last three bowls has played BC, Mississippi State, and USC. That’s 100 times more fun than Iowa State again.

I heard they went to spoco when they arrived and decided it wasn’t the best environment for his mom.

I think BYU was still in play, but he was coming here to visit the weekend before signing day.
  1. Petras visited the weekend of Dec 9/10, 2017
  2. Wilson's visit to Iowa, scheduled for the next weekend (Dec 16/17), was canceled on either the 14th or the 15th because "Iowa got a QB commit."
  3. Petras announced his commitment on Friday, 12/15 and signed on 12/20.

Edit: I fixed the timing based on the 2018 Recruiting thread.

Wilson was fucking heated when Iowa called and cancelled his visit. I believe they were in the airport about to board the plane.

No notion of attempting to get a big play and be a douche after AC's celebration? Then when it backfired making up some bullshit?

You are probably right, but college football seems to be less courteous than ever. Even Kirk is being a douche sometimes these days.

I love how a couple players celebrated the safety like they were right back in the game.

The Virginia trick play reminds me of Mansell’s only Iowa moment (go to 9:35)

Iowa checks in at 24 and ISU 13 in the college football playoff rankings. I’m going to LOL when the Hawks finish ahead of the Clones in the final standings.
