In order for The Game to have Big Ten championship implications, we need the Hawkeyes to show up big time today. 12:00 today on ABC at Iowa against Nebraska.
Senior Day, Thanksgiving, National TV there is always a chance. Unlikely, but at least a chance.
Funny. scUM reduced to relying on Iowa?
What has to happen for you to make the championship game?
Keep it up and you're out of here.
Still waiting for the Obama pardon to come through. It could happen.
And OSU reduced to...sitting at home after November.
I would still rather be us.
True, but they will be home laughing that they beat both teams in the B1G Championship game and getting more dedicated for 2013. Good luck.
Funny. OSU fans reduced to relying on Obama for pardoning them for cheating?
Trust me...come Jan 1...if you guys are still laughing, you will have to be high.
Frankly, the only thing worse than losing will be remembering, forever, that you blew a potential national championshp so a couple guys could play in the Sugar Bowl against Arkansas.
Hey - it wouldn't be the first stupid thing the President has done.
Come on Iowa. You can do it! I got faith.
Then tomorrow we kick the ever living crap out of those pretenders from Columbus.
Weisman looks great
Iowa's defense has gotta make some stops though. It was great holding them to a FG on the first possession, but Nebraska will put up points.
Yeah, Iowa's defense is the key, though not sure anyone is going to be able to pass much with that wind.
I bet the 5 Maryland fans who care about football see the condtions in Iowa with those temps in the 20s with a hefty wind chill and think to themselves: "We made a huge mistake".
JVB is actually a pretty good QB, his receivers are absolutely awful though.
Iowa looks good on offense, which means they have a good chance to win.
Would be great to control our own destiny again.
Iowa faces an uphill struggle but if the conditions keep Nebraska from passing they have at least a chance.
omg, what a horrific end of that possession. Hopefully they can at least hit the FG

Iowa blew too many chances in that first half. Should be up like 17-3.
Well, the reality of it is that in the 2nd quarter they basically needed something close to an XP situation to get a reasonably safe FG and Nebraska's D is too good to just run it on them with Weisman and expect to get deep in the red zone. Given the wind they couldn't even really play the field position game that well.
Iowa is struggling with the conditions just like Nebraska is and Nebraska is the more talented team. I think what we mean is "we *wish* Iowa was up 17-3"
Iowa is being Iowa. Nebraska will get their act together. We will need some breaks for Iowa to pull this out.
