What is interesting is that you would try to have a discussion of Iowa football here?

You are in the wrong place.

It may be what occurrs in the hog barns is causing this confusion? I don't know.

Well...the title of the thread is Big 10 predictions; guessing that means it is open to talk about any and every team.

it's fittingly pathetic that you spend countless hours combing the NU board for topics to chime in on

So, what will May bring in 2021. Iowa has some experience and a youth.

Yahya Black is young. Iowa has played youth a little more lately.

They ranked 4 or 5th youngest P5 teams in 2020. They have spring ball this go around.

Many juniors are experiencing first spring as a player.
As far as the offensive side of the ball Nebraska has a younger team more so than Ioway.

Besides Martinez, Toure, Allen, Vokolec, O Martin and JC Omar Manning. Nebraska has sophomores, , RedShirt Freshman and true Freshman all over the place either starting or back ups..

No, that is what message boards are for right. I check in about 10 minutes a day to see what is going on since you are in the conference now. I enjoy other fanbases perspective on things. There are a lot of things that make me pathetic, I wouldn't say that is one of them.

1. Schedule is pud.
2. Team is returning the best offensive line, RB, WR's, and a QB with 20+ starts. - in the division
3. Defense brings back nearly everyone and should rebound
Those guys barely beat our crappy team last season and they're going 11-1?

You know what's really sad ? A team that loses 6 years in a row to those very same Iowegians who start a bunch of walk ons, 2 star and three star players on both sides of the ball. Your 4 star recruits really have made a difference before they packed their bags and left Stinken. 😎 👍

Just think, if Peirson-EL (SP) doesnt go all super man in 14', we might be talking about 9 in a row this year.

Big Ten West

1. Minnesota - 11-1 - loss to Ohio State
2. Wisconsin - 10-2 - loss to Notre Dame and Minnesota
3. Nebraska - 8-4 - loss to OU, Ohio State, Minnesota, and Wisconsin
4. Northwestern - 7-5 - will lose to Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan - but rest of schedule is comically terrible.
5. Iowa - 6-6 - biggest rebuilding season in years. - will lose to Indiana, Iowa State, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Penn State
6. Purdue - 3-9 - will lose to everyone but Ilinois
7. Illinois - 3-9 - will lose to everyone but Maryland


Big Ten East

1. Ohio State - 11-1 - I think Oregon gets them in week two.
2. Penn State - 10-2 - losses to Wisconsin and Ohio State
3. Indiana - 9-3 - losses to Ohio State, Penn State, and Minnesota
4. Rutgers - 7-5 - losses to Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, Indiana, and Wisconsin
5. Michigan - 6-6 - losses to Washington, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Indiana, Penn State, and Ohio State
6. Maryland - 3-9 - losses to everyone except Sparty
7. Michigan State - 2-10 - 0-9 in conference play - but they might beat Michigan because that's what they do.. ha.

Jeff Brohm and Jim Harbaugh get fired.

PJ Fleck wants the Michigan job, but I'm not sure he fits the "Michigan Man mystique." I could see him ending up at USC if it opens.
Bumping this because I cannot stop laughing

Just the best from a guy who claims to ‘know football’

Edit- Good call on oregon tho, credit where due

He hit the nail on the head with Purdue. If we assume they are bad. Which I think is a hard assumption to make.

Assuming Purdue sucks balls is hard? Purdue has literally never been good

Your team should be relegated to fcs and replaced with a more competitive school.

Your loser drum can’t save you

I went to a Nebraska game in west Lafayette and felt guilty the entire time

Like visiting a less fortunate person in a home

Good talk. Not sure how a top 10 public university is a less fortunate home? I agree, Purdue has never won a national championship, but they have some good teams and produced some great players. It's the cradle of QB's for a reason. They are better than Nebraska right now.

The cradle of QBs? Because of drew Brees and Kyle Orton like 20 years ago?

Nobody cares about academics. Your stadium is a 3/4 empty dump just like the town it resides in.

Lmao and people call us husker fans delusional

Most QB starts by a college in the NFL. You missed quite a few solid QB's. The stadium is far from 3/4's empty. In fact, I think we are averaging a few thousand shy of a sellout each game. Sorry we don't worship football like Nebraska? Not sure what I've done to you, but good luck the rest of the way.

Resident boiler fan gave a stat that they’ve had the most QB starts in the NFL of any college

Len Dawson, griese and brees account for the bulk of those, and obviously those first 2 were donezo before 1980

Yup and it is like 100 more starts than thr second closest team. Purdue always seems to have a good QB. Even Hazell recruited a QB that has 9 NFL starts. Brohm has got the QB recruiting going, so hopefully he will have one soon. I truthfully don't get it. Haha
