    Rankings mean squat if it doesn't come with hardware. Your claim to fame is shared Big Ten titles in which one of the teams you shared with beat you on the field and the other team you shared with went on to win the National Title and was surely the best team in the conference.

    Yeah because Indiana, Purdue, Minnesota, and Illinois were all so much better than the Big 12 North.
    How many bowls did those teams participate in compared to the shitty Big 12 North?

    This is the type of delusion that gets you a 7 loss season. Fire a quality coach who never won less than 9 games I believe for someone who rarely does and in his first season loses 7 games.

    You're not Alabama or Florida State, and right now (and in the last 16 years) you're not Iowa.

    It's not championship or bust. But for a fan base that doesn't know to turn the clocks ahead, that's hard to rationalize.

    Nebraska is a just 'another school' in the Midwest now with recruiting disadvantages compared to schools in the south and the Blue Bloods of the area (Michigan, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma). .. You're also one of the worst academic schools in the BIG. This is what you should see when you view your reflection in the mirror.

    Top 10 finish in football and a top 3 ranking in basketball. Hi, I'm 2016 have we met?

    Take your Starter jacket off bro. It's great to be a Hawkeye. Us and Oklahoma are the only two programs to be top 10 in both major sports.

    Ha Ferentz is 8-8 against former North division Iowa State.

    That should have won them some North division titles alone.

    Nebraska fans shouldn't have to apologize for having high expecations. If the reverse were true that would make us Iowa. Having high expecations is why we have been one of the best football programs of all time. Having low expectations is why Iowa fans are cool with 7-8 win seasons. No thanks

    Looks like they have been, in fact pretty close in recent years. I do know Nebraska has a lot of following out west here - mainly California.

    I think the only real reason folks out in the northwest know more about Iowa, though, is that they had one hell of a year & people are still talking about how they travel.
    I'd have to bet Nebraska travels much similar if they were to get out this way.

    We have been to the west coast a ton more than Iowa has over the last 7 years. We've played Washington UCLA and 3 or so Holiday bowls.

    Now you are comparing your program to Oklahoma.
    Fcking amazing what one year can do to an idiot's ego.

    I'm sure you will be talking for years about that Rose Bowl appearance while wearing your starter Iowah jacket you bought on sale at Kmart once Iowah goes back to $hit like they always do.

    I knew about those Holiday bowls. That's pretty south, though. The Rose bowl is a pretty special thing to anyone on the west coast, hence my name! (Oregon's made it 7 times, not Iowa :D)

    Warned me for what? I believe Farniok is the better of the two and I'm quite familiar with the Raridons. Always thought the brother at Wisconsin was the most athletic. He just didn't want to play football anymore. The one that played at Notre Dame ended up being a long snapper

    I don't think you know as much as you claim to do. No offense. I'd be glad to have a drink and discuss the Farniok vs Fant vs Raridon at to Press Club with ya.

    Seriously, stop embarrassing yourself. Iowa isn't better known than Nebraska on the west coast. If they were, their recruiting wouldn't be dogshit there every year.

    You'll have to forgive him he's an Oregon fan who can't get over himself long enough to realize nobody on this board gives 2 $hits about what he thinks.

    Well, if there's one thing for certain, its that Oregon basketball & Nebraska basketball seem to be on the same unfortunate level.

    Now I'm stuck watching Iowa/Maryland tonight.

    Before the B1G west, sure. Tell us your record against Iowa State, a B12 north team. Tell us your record against Nebraska, a B12 north team.

    Once you're done with that, we'll go to step 2...

    Hey stupid, do you realize that 5 of those 6 teams in the Big 12 north finished Top 10 in the nation during the 15 years Nebraska was in the Big 12 North?

    Don't talk to me about weak. While Iowa was playing creampuffs like Illinois, Minnesota, Northwestern, Purdue, Indiana, etc. the Big 12 North was winning bowl games left and right.

    Incidentally, the one team that didn't finish in the Top 10, Iowa State, went 8-8 against Iowa.

    I got ask....you know since Io_a is at the same level as the Huskers, Oklahoma and others, when was Io_as last National Championship game (win or Lose, ill make it easier for them)? I believe ours was 2001against a freaking juggernaut Miami team that would of killed any team they played in that game.

    Yea i agree, this Hawkeye is doing everything in his power to dog the Huskers down, even retarded comments about the Big 12 North being worse then there Big 10 division at the same time period. What has Illinois, Purdue, Minnesota or even Iowa done compared to Nebraska, Colorado, KSU and hell even ISU even had a few decent runs there. In the 80s to the 2000s id have to say the Big 12 North was defently better then Iowas weak ass division they were in and every team has the wins, bowl game wins and hard wear to prove it. Just give up Hawkeye, you guys had ONE good season and the year before you guys almost canned your ELITE COACH you guys have (btw im not cliaming Iowas coach is elite, thats you guys).

    I have no doubt you guys can defend our program. My problem is I've allowed 2-3 weeks of continued Iowa trolls, lies and name calling and it's time to put an end to the insanity. If you like hanging with them so much they have a board and i am sure they will show you much hospitality.

    Tell us more about the delusions that lead to 7 loss seasons. And 8 loss. And 9 loss. And 10 loss. You know a lot about them. Tell us more.

    Reiff didn't play at LT right away because Jeff Backus was still in Detroit (I am a Lions fan too). Reiff has been better than average I'd say at LT. Now with that said, Detroit needs an interior linemen if you ask me or an elite defensive back. I think the Laken Tomlinson pick last year sucked.

    You're talking about delusion, but here you are comparing iowa's program to Nebraska's. That's the definition of delusional. There is no comparison even if you cherry pick it, iowa has nothing in its history to brag about....ever.

    This board is a perfect example of Nebraska fans insecurity with Iowa. I come here for some intelligent talk with a rival and get name called like a 2nd grader.

    Could be that you are getting lumped in with the garbage posters from Iowa. If you come with intelligent words, you will be fine. Some may name call, but you will have good conversations as well.
