Default Iowa game

Anyone know what the ticket situation will be? I am sure UNI gets a certain allotment but will they be selling to season ticket holders and/or PSC members?

In 2005 I sat in the 2nd row on the 10 yard line, opposite the student section. I would imagine that was the alloted UNI section.

I suppose it will be tough to get tickets, considering every game is supposedly "sold out"...

Yes - but tickets for this game will be fairly easy to come by.

If you are willing to wait, I would bet that you can get tickets the week of the game for $15-25. Last time we played, I was able to find a season ticket holder who wasn't going. For $20 a pop, we sat 45 yard line about half way up.

It would have been nice to be with the UNI fans, but the fans around me were fan to hang with.

Anyone remember the attendance in '05? I think this game will be more hyped by both sides than that one. I predict a tough ticket for this one.

A coworker stated Big11 rules require 4,000 seats for visitors for conference games. Coworker doesn't know how that works for non conference games. One might have to be a season ticket holder and contribute to the PSC to have a shot for the UNI allocation.

Such conference rules have no bearing on non-conference games.
Just like MVFC rules that govern such matters for UNI's conference games don't carry over to any non-con games they host.

Terms are agreed upon by the two schools when they set up the contract for the game. The NCAA may have some general guidelines that must be adhered to, but I'm not sure they would have anything that covers ticket allotment in such games.

I would sell my soul for a NC but beating Iowa might be #2. More so just to see the looks on the Iowa fans as they walk out of the stadium.

IMO if UNI plays Iowa 5 times in 10 years we will get at least one win in there somewhere. No UNI player has ever played against Iowa more than once, has ever been on the field in Kinnick more than once. Familiarity breeds confidence. It took us 3 tries to beat ISU the first time and we beat them on average about one third of the times we play.

If ISU can beat Iowa 7 out of 10 or whatever, UNI can certainly beat them given enough chances. We will never be favored going in obviously, but upsets happen.
I think this is a pretty good post. Look what happened for us at Iowa State. We had a couple close games down there which we lost, and then we went down the next year and gave them a good beat down.

We need to play Iowa close first. We were competitive and showed up well in the '05 game, but Iowa was never in any danger of losing. I was there. Iowa's program is several levels above Iowa State's as well.

Funny. If they are several levels above ISU, you'd think the recent head-to-head record would show evidence of that. (past 11 meetings, Iowa has 4 wins. ISU has 7)

Very true. Not to mention the fact that they lost at Iowa State in Ames the very week after we soundly beat them there.

It could happen, but like was mentioned, it would be nice to be able to play them at Kinnick a few times more as we had been able to do with Iowa State.

Overall, I'd probably say that Iowa does have a "better" football program than Iowa State.
But I wouldn't call it "several levels above".
And as has been clearly evidenced, whatever the difference in "levels", it doesn't dictate what happens on that field in the head-to-head.

As far as how all this pertains to UNI's next game, in Kinnick....
Of course Iowa will be favored. And justifiably so. But I certainly don't think the possibility of UNI pulling off an upset is outside the realm of possibility.

I realize the recent head to head doesn't back that up. I'm talking level of recruits they realistically have access to, level of recruits they sign, legit NFL prospects, resources, coaching stability, facilities, etc. The variables needed to win are far more prevalent at Iowa than ISU, and that's backed up historically. A more minor point...it would be easier to recruit in Iowa City than Ames. This is subjective, and it's not like Iowa City is some southern metropolis...but Ames is far from either.

Given the state of both programs the last ten years, Iowa State has always had more to play for, and as a result plays with a big chip on their shoulder. Give them credit for winning, but realize the above.

That's all I was doing. I wasn't comparing Iowa to Ohio St., Michigan, or a level above that...say Florida, Texas, etc.

If Moaki (however you spell his name, don't care enough to look it up) is healthy, he will have a field day against us. Our defense has trouble with talented tight ends.

And the reason Derrick Law was a good filler last year is because we had a line that gave him holes you could drive a train through. He is slow. If he didn't smoke a blunt every 6 hours, he might improve. I doubt that happens though.

moeki is a bust just like their entire '05 class. We need to stop their running game. If we do can slow down the running game & hold onto the ball on offense while sustaining some drives, we will hold our own. Save from the Penn St game last year, it has been years since Iowa has beaten anyone. You'd think they beat Florida when they played w/ South Carolina last year. SC was a very mediocre football team...SEC or otherwise. The hype machine that is the media in this state continues to hype Iowa well beyond their real abilities.

Blunts. LOL

I don't quite get the TE problem you speak of. Who have we had trouble with? Our secondary is/will be young, but I don't think it has been tight ends that have lit us up.

There have been many TE's that have killed us, esepcially come playoff time.
