    Re: FCS Playoff and UNI vs FBS Records

    The GA Southern game was one of the best games I have ever seen.

It would be intersting to watch, given the contrast in schemes.
    When I said "drop like a rock" I meant their win total would go down on average 2 or 3 games a year. Iowa has not really faired well against spread teams in the past. And has really struggled with spread teams with talent. Oklahoma beat them up in their bowl game against the hoks a few years ago, and won easily. Iowa would try to play keep away, and grind it out. There are some good defenses in the Big 12, but its hard to have great numbers when the offense is scoring so quickly that the defense is right back on the field again. Its like fast break bb, when the team is flying up and down the floor it also means they are going to give more chances to the other team to score. I will say its a lot more enjoyable to watch a game like that then a 9-6 win against Penn St. a few years ago.

    Wouldn't you think a team in the Big 10 would play Ohio State more than something like once in a six year period?

    I read a stat recently that pointed out that Iowa is 12-5 in their last 17 games. Yes, they ran the table during the regular season last year, but lost at the end of the year (and the end of the previous year) whenever they played a team with a pulse.
    All true but at the end of the day, no one remembers who you beat for those wins, just that you won the games. Iowa has a really great deal, the BIG has great bowl tie ends, and the money to make sure they always have a decent program.

    The hardest part for ISU is they that actually have to play ranked teams, while Iowa for the most part misses them during the regular season. Here is a run down of the ranked teams ISU and Iowa have played during the regular season since 2011. The rank given is the schools AP rank the week they played Iowa or ISU. 2015 ISU played #2,3,8, and 15. Iowa # 19, 20. 2014 ISU #,3,7,18,20,21. Iowa #16. 2013 ISU # 12,18,19,20. Iowa # 4 and 24. 2012 ISU # 6,12,15,17 Iowa # 14 and 21. 2011 season ISU played # 2,8,9,17,17,20,25, while Iowa played #15,17,21. None of the time was either team ranked when they played each other. Playing horrible teams allows for more wins, just like missing the better teams does. Iowa has made a living off that fact the last 5 years. Here is the link to Iowa and ISU schedules http://www.espn.com/college-football...2294/year/2015

    Yep, he's a police officer in San Leandro, CA (part of Oakland). He's been studying movie making out there, too.

    Never said they were, I am just saying that ISU has the misfortune to play a number of ranked team each year, Iowa not so much. Look at ISU last year, won three games, with the Iowa schedule they win 5 or 6. More wins means better recruits, which means more wins in the future. SOS does mean something, even though a lot of Iowa fans think otherwise.

    For the guy who asked earlier. Kenny Shedd is a police officer in CA. His Dad ( Bill) worked with me at the Davenport PD before he retired. Bill and all his kids are quality people.

    Fun Fact:

    UNI is 7-12 vs Big 12 opponents (all on road), which puts our W/L at .368.

    ISU is 151-275 vs Big 12 opponents, which puts their W/L at .354.
    ISU is at the distinct disadvantage of not being able to play Iowa State though.
