    Fuck everyone if this doesn't happen tomorrow night. Iowa deserves it and should be proud to go the Kirk's first Rose Bowl as a head coach.

    RATT and actually right. Iowa & MSU flip spots; the rest of the top 7 stays the same.

    Not this year. They stretched out for a win with 30 seconds left. It's a very easy call for the committee to flip MSU and Iowa and do nothing else.

    Ohio State vs. Stanford does NOTHING for anyone. Ohio State vs. Notre Dame gives every single talking head and ESPN executive a boner.

    The Big Ten is going to make the call on this, and we're headed to Pasadena. They'll give the committee a little nudge, we'll end up a spot ahead of Ohio State, and the Big Ten gets two giant spots on NYD.

    Nah, that will be Florida State. Iowa vs. Stanford Rose. OSU/Notre Dame Fiesta. 2 teams nobody gives a fuck about in the Sugar. Clemson/MSU in the Orange. Alabama/Oklahoma in the Cotton.

    They are going to the Rose Bowl. All of the national media is on that bandwagon after the game and every single thing the committee has ever done indicates they value conference/division champions over teams that didn't play in them. Iowa played 13 games and has 1 loss on a neutral field by 3 points to a Top 5 team and much better wins than Ohio State who played 12 games.

    It makes zero sense to send Ohio State to play Stanford. Zero.

    Not only that, but there's a better than average chance OSU falls a spot tomorrow. We may fall all the way to 6, but it probably won't matter.

    It made
    Zero sense to jump Oklahoma after beating tcu by one. If the committee is anything they're irrational.

    Check that, pairings at 11:30. Rankings at the other games "close" to 2pm. All on ESPN. Iowa media twitter will be fun about noon or so.

    False and they have said many times that when it comes down the the last week they value the conference championships and games above everything else.

    Iowa should go to the rose, but a win over ND in the fiesta may big better for the program overall.

    What gets more TV sets, Iowa vs. Stanford and Ohio State vs. Notre Dame or.....

    Ohio State vs. Stanford and Iowa vs. Notre Dame?

    This should be easy to answer.

    There is zero difference between the 2 teams who played in Indianapolis tonight & if this is enough for Ohio State to jump us, then this system is declaring itself a sham. I agree with you & don't think they'll do that.

    The sanctioned by the Big Ten Conference owned Big Ten Network has all of their people screaming for Iowa in the Rose Bowl.

    Let me tell you this, I think if given the choice Ohio State would rather play Notre Dame in the Fiesta. This works out for everyone and it is the right thing to do.

    If the committee is benevolent and right, Iowa plays Clemson in the Orange. I am willing to take the Rose as a consolation prize.

    No, 2009 was just evened out. It's just bizarre how in sports sometimes you get an almost exact reversal.

    Weirdness, I'm not sure if it can be looked at as ironic, but Iowa beats MSU in 09 in the game which was the key to clinching the Orange Bowl.

    Now we lose to them in similar fashion to clinch the Rose Bowl?

    Here's hoping Canzeri is good to go in the Rose Bowl. He's worked so hard & is, imo, the best back we have. He looks so polished, physically.

    Ohio State is a sack of shit team that got rewarded last year and this year was a bunch of fucking entitled pricks. Everyone thinks that, so fuck them and Iowa is going to the Rose Bowl.

    Admittedly, it does. I read how hard he worked, lifting weights when he was out for 3 games & thought it showed in his runs vs Nebraska & a little bit, early tonight.
