    Should be ranked around #22 with a chance to go 6-0 at Kinnick for Homecoming. Still a lot of injuries to work through with Tevaun Smith out and likely Boone Myers. Illinois is pretty bad against the pass and run, but they have a good QB.

    I would be pretty worried about beating up too much on Canzeri. Need to get one of the back up guys a decent amount of carries.

    Ill/Nebraska game on right now on BTN.

    Good preview of things to come. Illinois just drove 80 yards but failed on a 4th down. They have some decent athletes on the field.

    It's weird how Iowa was poised to start this season with a stable of competent backs, and here we are, 5 games in and essentially depending on one horse yet again.

    I think you are going to be closer and I will pick #22. Wisconsin (19) and West Virginia (23) are going to drop out. Oklahoma State (20), Mississippi State (21), California (24) and Florida (25) losing will help out to get that high.

    Toledo and Oregon are going to move into the rankings most likely and could be higher than Iowa.

    Here are two things that I now know are true:

    1. Iowa can absolutely win the West, and are quite possibly the favorites.

    2. Ohio State and Michigan State are very strong, but they are not invincible.

    I'll be cheering my ass off for Jake Rudock next week.

    Would be nice to get some help, even if it's only Week 2 in conference play.

    I would guess that Iowa gets one of the following announcer combos next week....

    Mark Jones and Rod Gilmore w/ Quint Kessenich
    Beth Mowins and Anthony Becht w/ Paul Carcaterra
    Adam Amin and Kelly Stouffer w/ Olivia Harlan

    The shitty thing is Beth Mowins had the 11am game on ESPN2 this week, so would bet she gets it again for this game.

    No way. Only chance that happens is if Oklahoma State, Mississippi State, California and Florida all win.

    Illinois lost their best RB Josh Ferguson likely for a few weeks.

    Doesn't matter. They needed 6 free shots at the end zone at home to beat a shitty Nebraska.

    I hope we destroy Illinois and all their players and coaches get buttfucked by Lexington Steele and Mandingo after the game.

    And then they all get AIDS.
