    Exactly, I think we would prefer a home and home with them right? Cheaper, good for the Des Moines alumni base. As long as we could strategically pick the year we play there.

    Drake wants the check and doesn't want to get humiliated at home in front of their 19 fans.

      I actually think we would. Easy win that's still basically a home game.

        Yeah I think we would embrace it. It's been fun for us fans when we've played there in the past, and the UNI base in Des Moines would probably show up pretty strongly.
        "...the Northern Iowa men's basketball team reached the ultimate highs before hitting a devastating low. Unexpected success, followed by unimaginable failure. And they owned it -- all of it -- for the world to see. Like men. Like leaders. Like champions -- in a way no tournament bracket could ever define."

          Agree we'd take a game in Des Moines...and that Drake wants nothing to do with it.

          Not good for their brand in Des Moines to get pasted by UNI.
          Winning is more fun than losing.

            Looking again I saw Drake on September 12th. So our bye is most likely the week before conference play.

              With all the dumb **** that's happening in college football - and us having a new AD in place by 2026 - maybe we can not play the Iowa trifecta.

                In the covid year we were to play at Iowa. I believe we may have honored that contract and then put the pads away until spring as NDSU did that fall playing Central Arkansas and not again to spring. Between 2020 and last year Iowa agreed to playing UNI in 2026 to full fill the 2020 contract.

                  We didn't play Iowa that year. We shut down til spring and the Big Ten played conference games only.

                    League schedule for 2026 is out. Not a ton of favors done with early home games again. Super late bye week.

                    Updated. 2026 is an 11 game year so the schedule is complete.

                      We're not winning enough here either. Just forget about the hawks and clowns and play a MAC and a MWC school. Maybe, we get one. Do you ever want to win again? Yet, we'll go to Iowa City and Ames to get our teeth kicked in. Probably go, 6-5, again.
