    Sells out? Are you 12 or something? You understand this is commonplace right?

    Personally they arent my cup of tea but you know who does like them...the players and a lot of recent former players. Their opinion matters too (I would say more as they are students n the case of current players) and it certainly matters more than yours.

    So we have another step towards kickoffs being eliminated. At this point, they should just allow the receiving team to elect to take the ball at the 25 if they want and not even kick.

    Nebraska AD Bill Moos quote from yesterday:

    "We might have some other schedule news here in a week or so in regards to 2022, on," Moos said. "It was something I really became a bulldog on in regards to Nebraska and some of the traditional power programs in the Big Ten not beating each other up so bad. Because in my opinion the strength of schedule really hasnít had much impact on whoís being selected for the College Football Playoff. We are in the process of addressing that to hopefully mine another satisfaction.Ē

    First and foremost, LOL at him insinuating Nebraska is a power program in the B1G.

    Second, many took this to believe the Big Ten may be moving back to 8 confernence games.

    I, for one, do not want to see that happen ó I want to see Iowa play OSU, UM, MSU, and PSU more, not less.

    However, and itís still early in the playoff era, but 10 out of 10 conference champions who played 8 league games made the Playoff. 4 out of 10 conference champions who played 9 league games made the Playoff.

    Thatís pretty ****ing evidence in support for less conference games.

    The SEC and their mid November cupcake game rather than an additional conference game sure seems to be a recipe thatís working..

    Or maybe, it's just a coincidence that the leagues that are currently kinda lousy also play more conference games. Most of the SEC is a cupcake game for Alabama too.

    Just put the ball at the 25 and be done with it. If it really is such a dangerous play, eliminate it.

    The real problem/solution to this are the fans. I am not a fan of going to cupcake football games, and the prices of the tickets bear that out. So once the big stadiums stop selling out for the small games, then schools will realize that what draws high paying fans are high stakes football games. It would be interesting to see the payouts for teams that make the championship series, and how much gets shared among B1G schools. And then compare that to money lost due to light weight schools coming to town.

    This will never happen at the places it needs to happen (SEC, B1G). In those places footbaw passed Jesus long ago for the #1 spot, and even if you could convince the hard core fans to skip the cupcake game, the second tier fans would stream in for their only chance to see their team in 30 years. Appalachian State will always have a full house in Ann Arbor to watch them win.

    I skipped a wedding for Ohio State at Iowa last year. (thank God, the couple tailgates with us, and always said never will we have a fall wedding.. and what a day in Iowa City it was..) anyways, I fall into that hard core fan group Kep is talking about.

    Thereís only 7 times a year I get to spend in Iowa City with my dad, brother, other family and friends, etc. My season tickets allow us to park where we want, setting us up for our perfect tailgate, etc. itís bigger than just the game ó itís the evening before hanging out and dinner having a couple drinks, waking up early, the tailgating, the people, etc. ó I love when big name teams and opponents come to town, but Iím going to be tailgating with my family, enjoying the full game day experience, whether itís Iowa vs. Ohio State or Iowa vs. Miami(OH).

    Football season is such a short, sweet time of the year ó this time of year, for example, Iím just itching for a game, to tailgate, see the people I love and enjoy, etc. still 100 days away. Iíll never take for granted an opportunity to spend that quality time together, so the opponent isnít going to deter me from doing so, as theyíre arenít enough opportunities to give those up.

    Now I am on the extreme side of things of course, but I know a LOT of other ticket holders who do the same.

    Iowa does $25 youth tickets for those ďno nameĒ opponents, theyíre part of mini season ticket packages, etc. seats will continue to be sold as long as the product on the field is competitive.

    Lastly, what does it benefit Iowa competitively to drop a no name game and add a big name non conference opponent? (Especially in the 9 game B1G schedule era)

    If other schools are playing 8 conference games, 1 FBS opponent, and 3 ďno nameĒ games, including one in November, competitively youíre doing yourself a disadvantage as a conference to have an additional FBS conference game to your schedule, a potential larger land mine than dropping a conference game and adding an additional no name team.

    If the goal is to make the Playoff, and other conferences are making the path easier for their schools, it makes ZERO sense to play an additional conference game than others across the country, particularly when the numbers back this up.

    I don't know that you are that extreme. You just described perfectly why I keep going back to Lynah. It's for the hockey, sure, but mostly it's about the friends and the atmosphere. It's an extended family. I would not give that up to try to force the team to do something that was relevant to the sport. The team is, kinda, an afterthought.
