82 degrees and partly sunny at the place Nolookpass declared the superior stadium, tailgate and gameday experience in the State of Iowa.

It's one of the few he hasn't been arrested at yet!

What kind of dipshit would think Ames is a superior experience in anything, let alone the game day experience? Tornado sirens blaring from interstate road signs….what a special place!

Beautiful!
It's usually the hometown "hero" dipshit types that dream of bringing in Thanksgiving leftovers.

Last year was so generally bad on offense that it kind of let how bad the loss to Iowa State was slip by.
You’re impression is that that just slipped on by here? Huh.

I'm not going to bother with MOFR on Bader vs NLP, but:

The only thing Iowa State's gameday experience has over Iowa is the metric fuckton of parking within visual distance of Trice. (The fact that stadium parking there consists of a vast open field with the facility smack dab in the middle probably contributes to CyFan's overdeveloped sense of their place in the world - looking around on a gameday Saturday might imply, to a rube whose only travel out of Iowa in their whole life has been to Omaha to sell cows, that Iowa State has the biggest fan following in the country.

Of course, they're going to shit all over that advantage so Jamie Pollard can have a glorified strip mall to the north of the stadium.

Tailgating is no advantage - there's nothing even remotely close to Melrose there.

Their wretched Soviet-chic stadium sucks. Their Tinkertoy scoreboard sucks. Sweet Caroline and Juicy Wiggle are the highlights of their in-stadium soundtrack. Their band penguin-waddles and insists on using an abbreviation with eight letters and a set of quotation marks. Their concessions have failed food inspections in consecutive years for shit like moldy ice machines and hot dog buns.

They suck, and those elements which don't suck are in the process of being made to suck so that their small-dicked nerd president/AD can feel good about himself.

Fuck them. I hope they start Brian on Ozempic on Friday so the shit he'll take all over Iowa State on Saturday is as large and raw-sewage-vile as possible.

At last year’s game I was told my booing wasn’t helping. In the end, I feel like it was heard, but not enough. I’ll likely be booing, and boo-shamed once again.

I know ISu sucks and I’m still not that confident

It shouldn’t have. Not for anyone paying any modicum of attention. That was as bad of a loss as any in the entirety of the Ferentz era. And absolute abortion of a performance

It sucked but 2014 was way worse. Last years Iowa State team was at least competitive in most of their other games. Their only other win in 2014 was by 7 over their current head coaches Toledo team. They were so bad that TCU beat them 55-3 and dropped in the rankings.

Iowa States last 3 wins in this series have all been in Kinnick. Fuck.

The stupidest game I’ve ever seen at Kinnick and a bizarre, fever dream of an environment after some rain. Arguably a worse loss than NDSU. Even the Iowa State fans around us seemed to be in complete shock at the futility and ineptitude of both teams.

It actually became funny after awhile as Brian and Kirk sent Spencer out to fail spectacularly and be booed series after series. I maintain it was the worst performance of a singular athlete at any level I’ve ever seen live.

I hope they win on Saturday, then we cancel the series forever.

Let’s not forget Iowa State thought they had won the game only to get a 15 yard unsportsmanlike penalty call that allowed Iowa to move into field goal range only to have Iowas kicker miss the game tying kick which his mom didn’t see because her phone was blowing up with fraud alerts.

Absolutely everything about this week sucks. Not a single redeeming quality. College football is 12 short weeks and we poison one of them so far Carol can go on Twitter and delude herself into a sense of relevancy.

At least the next few years of Big Ten play will give us some temporarily unique games that feel like non-conference matchups. The type of variety this stupid game has robbed us of ever since the conference went to 9 games.

No, what robbed us of that was Kirk and Gary being complacent and not wanting to challenge the program with a tougher OOC opponent.
