Wow, I'm guessing a Kansas City faggot is some special kind. Please don't enlighten me, however.
Iowa football has been decent the last few years, and ok since the early 80s. Before that, you'd have to go back to the 50s to find a good Iowa football team. You had a good year last year, winning a lot of games late. You won the Orange Bowl. To put that in perspective, Kansas won the Orange Bowl two years ago. Neither Kansas nor you won their conference that year. (KU was 3rd that year, Iowa was 2nd last year). Look where Kansas football is now. Now Kansas IS a basketball school, and that's never going to change. When I think of Iowa, I think of good basketball teams. I think of coaches like Lute Olsen, George Raveling, Dr. Tom Davis. Yeah, football you had Hayden Fry, and Ferentz is getting it done now after sort of a rough start. Just because you were good last year, doesn't make you a traditional powerhouse. I know Iowa fans travel well as well. But you're not in Nebraska's league in that respect, at least as far as football goes. No one is, especially per capita.
Let's put this in more perspective.
Iowa has won 11 Big Ten championships in football since (4 outright, 7 shared).
They've been to 24 bowl games, 22 of which are in the last 29 years.
They claim one national title in 1958, which actually was awarded to LSU in the major polls.
Average attendance at Iowa games is 71,000, but you sell out. Maybe not a fair comparison since Memeorial Stadium in Lincoln holds more people, but Iowa has a much larger population. And they aren't going to Iowa State games.
Nebraska has won 5 national championships.
They've won 20 conference championships since 1955 (Big 8 and Big 12), and 18 of those since 1970.
They've been to 46 bowl games.
They have 3 Hesiman Trophy Winners (Iowa has one..Nile Kinnick in 1939...nice choice to name your stadium after, especially considering he died in World War II very young)
Average attendance at NU games is 85,000.
I'm not bashing Iowa football. You've been decent for the last 30 years or so. But you're not Nebraska. And there's no shame in that.
