We get no respect. EAT IT!
We get no respect. EAT IT!
You know, I was planning on congratulating you today when I logged on, but gloating is unbecoming :rolleyes:
Oh, heck, Congrats :thumb:--Now just win the rest of your games!:innocent:
I fell asleep during the game!
But we were also the first NCAA Div 1-A team to block two consecutive FG tries.
The coming weeks will see if we are a team of destiny... or not.
We just got lucky on Saturday night... although I think Iowa has the best defense in the country.
That was not a lucky win. Yes, there were some moments of luck that helped change the momentum. But that was a solid win based on great defense.
And I watching a 290lb DT run 53 yards with his Christmas present in his hands is a thing of beauty.
(of course I am presuming someone who lives in Carlisle is a PSU fan!:thumb:)
I totally agree that PSU fans are amongst the classiest in college football.
I don't think I can honestly, as an Iowa grad, speak for our fanbase, but from what I've seen on message boards and heard via word of mouth, we treat our opponent's fans well when they come to Kinnick.
Fine then. Let me pick up the mantle of the classless Iowa fan.
We OWN Penn State!
Penn State is our little friend.
Hope we did not hurt any of your boys on Saturday.
Have fun in the Alamo bowl. I hear San Antonio is beautiful in mid December. And maybe you can rebook the same fabulous rooms that you had last year at the Motel 6.
Gee whiz, its too bad about that blown call on the reception, and the blind refs who never called holding, and all those injuries, and that little puff of wind on the punt, and looking past Iowa to the big game against USD next week, and the unfair expectations of a rabid fanbase, and that little bit of turf on the 35 that tripped up your halfback. Setting those things aside, you really won the game.

A Buckeye is making a mental note to remember this thread...
Better bring your sweater vest.
I DO HAVE a sweater vest SIR!
Let's not make fun if it. It has feelings, you know.
Iowa has never beaten Michigan and tOSU in the same year. Its either one, or the other.
If we manage to run the table and beat you guys and Minny, we'll be in the Mythical National Championship game... and probably lose to that ******bag Meyer. God I *hate* Urban Meyer.
If our offense can play even a little better, and assuming the level of D stays where it is, be afraid. Very afraid.
I actually don't worry so much about Stanzi. He is not fantastic, but he will continue to settle in. And as he does, and if the freshmen backs keep running hard, then we appear pretty solid. Offensive line play has settled into being very strong. Defense has been amazing. Even the punter is great.
Before the season I wished we did not have such a strong schedule. Now that we appear to be legit, I am glad it is so strong. If we continue to play well, then we might be in uncharted territory for Iowa this Winter.
With the exception of kickoff coverage, our special teams have been great.
Stanzi is not making stupid mistakes this year. No fumbles (fingers crossed so far), he's eating the ball when there no receivers, and that QB sneak he did - that was not audibled, he saw the green and instead of handing off the ball went for it - was a helluva smart play.
He doesn't seem to get rattled easily, and I'll take that over a guy that's either hot or not.
Ticket window is open, gentlepeople.
