What was that?
I really don't understand the media's love obsession with Iowa.
Of course they will be better next year. They couldn't get any worse than this year!

It's Christmas, can't we all just get along?

Plus, it could have been worse, Iowa could have won only 3 games.

Also, Iowa has a lot of talent and young experienced players coming in next season with a favorable schedule. Here's to hoping.

But alas, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Agree on all points... and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

If any team in Iowa turned a corner it had to be ISU. In the second half they beat teams they weren't suppose to and played tough and showed promise in the others. In a side note.... EIU legal troubles and the politicians were a toss up on top news this year.

For the record, I never said ISU hadn't "turned a corner" too. I'm expecting big (relatively) things next year.

Saying that Iowa is returning 15 starters for next year, But I don't know if that is really a good thing is it? I mean the starters last year weren't all that great. It is kinda like the people who said we lost almost all our Oline last year, and said it was a bad thing. but in reality they really couldn't have gotten much worse.

I don't get the media obsession either. If anything I thought Iowa finished the season badly not the other way around. I'm not taking a shot at Iowa, just the media. There definitely is a misconception about Iowa in the National Media. Who knows, maybe they'll be ranked #8 to start the season again.

How can Iowa have turned the corner when they're in the national championship hunt every year?
Losing to Western Michigan at the end of the year, and you've turned the corner? Ya.

Iowa has to find:
1. Reliable QB..
2. Running backs
They do return a lot of starters, but must fill those two problem areas. If they can do that, they may have turned some corner.

I have never been to EIU, but I assume the jail is around a corner from the campus. That corner was turned many times this year.

In the movies, the criminals always turn the corner when running from the police.
