I don't know much about the sagarin ratings, but I'm mystified how they can have Iowa State strength-of-schedule stronger than Iowas up to this point
As long as they don't have Minnesota anywhere but last it all adds up to me.
They have beaten Purdue and Nebrantska while they are missing their top offensive players, and it has all the rowers rubbing it raw.

TCU at 30 seems high. But at the end of the day, I really don’t give a fuck.

Bob Sanders could be the honorary captain for every game at Kinnick for the rest of time and he’d still get a rousing standing ovation out of Revo.

Kirk's line about Bob is an alltime great.... "Bob Sanders being on your team is like your older brother showing up when you are in a street fight.."

It reminds me of Big 12 basketball last year with NET ranking. Just a bunch of average teams between 25-50 and the analytics seem to love that even though there is a huge drop off after the top 10 to 15 teams.

You’re not wrong. But at the same time, there’s a pretty big freaking difference between your worst conference game being vs #53 and Rutgers being #142.

100% chance of rain/storms here in Athens from 11AM to 3PM (exact time the game will be on), so my DIRECTV will no doubt quit working and I won't be able to watch the game. Fuck.

sportsurge.net has streams of the game assuming your internet is fine. You should also be able to use your DTV login info for the ESPN app though I think that sucks

Do you not have internet?
Does it really shock you that this would be a difficult problem for him to solve? So much so that he would need to post this on an internet message board -- feeling so helpless? We're talking a highly functioning and intellectually sound individual here.

I wonder if the current players understand how much of a badass Bob was/is.

Before these guys speak to the team, is their a highlight package or bio that is read so these guys have some context of who is addressing them and why?

A Bob Sanders highlight tape is TV-MA.

Every retired NFL player gets fat or skinny. Bob says “I didn’t spend enough of the last 20 years lifting weights”

was at this game..
I was there as well. One of the things I remember most (outside of the final throw to Clark) was how many people left the stadium before the game was over thinking Iowa wouldn’t come back.

Feel like the 2004 Purdue game is sort of a forgotten great game in Iowa history. Wild game where Iowa spent one quarter building a 17-point lead and the other three trying to blow it.


Great crowd and I also remember it was the first year of the Hawkeye Express and they kept blowing its whistle making it feel like a Purdue home game or something
