I'm going to be honest and go for the reverse jinx, but this is a game that all year I thought Iowa was going to lose. I think it even more after watching both teams play today and especially with the game being at Nebrantska.

They nearly got Iowa the last 3 years and think they will get the win this year finally. The Iowa offense is dogshit, the defense is banged up and Nebrantska is playing way better than their record.

Iowa defense is going to have to play out of their minds with the offense getting multiple huge plays for scores to win this.

If we are even more honest, this team is way more of a 9-3 type of team than a 10-2 and NY6 type of team.

They blew their powder today and came up short. They’ll be ready for an extended vacation by Friday. Hawks roll.

Iowa’s played 3-4 Nebrantska teams that had already quit and begun offseason plans. Here’s hoping A) for another or B) Brian to stop being a tremendous stupid dumbfuck.

Computers like Nebrantska. They’ve been better this year but keep finding ways to lose. Let’s hope that continues.

Hopefully Nebrantska is still dealing with injuries on D next week. They didn't have their best linebacker or safety today and might have lost Damion Daniels. That would help but still not confident in this one.

It’s pretty weird that as an 9-2 team, facing a 3 win team….that we might even be underdogs in the game. That can’t be that common

I don't really care about celebrating Thanksgiving. Friday is going to be my official holiday of the season.

Wake up at 7am, coffee, bloody mary, hit the slopes. Beers on the resort deck, ski home with my friends and host a nice late afternoon lunch with the Hawkeyes on the tv. Several of my friends went to Florida, so they're happy to have somebody else to root for. We'll fire up the grill as we celebrate an Iowa victory and prepare for the NC vs NC State game. It will be about 50/50 amongst the crowd, so I anticipate a lot of side bets going on.

I'm old, so I'll probably be in bed by 10pm.

Nebrantska put up over 400 yards of offense against Wisconsin. Keeping Martinez from running on third down is going to be tough.

Vegas predicts Nebrantska to win a 1 score game. With Scott Frost as their coach.

I think Brian should go back in the booth and call plays from up there.

The weight of the world is on Martinez and Frost to win this game. I don't think they're ready for it in the same way Purdy and Campbell weren't.
