To be fair, the times he has won it weren't undeserving and Iowa wasn't mediocre. It is a joke sweatervest never won one, though. And no one was going to reward Meyer while OSU was on probation, so I don't really see why you are complaining. You really couldn't see that coming? Plus, you had talent and underwhelmed by going .500 and losing a bowl game last year, let's not make it out like you had 3 wins and no talent before Meyer...

And I actually really like Ferentz and have no real qualms with his philosophies for the most part (other than never giving anyone but upperclassmen playing time). I just think so much of his coaching hinges on his coordinators*, and I have little to no confidence in our current coordinators.

*I know this can be said about most every staff, but KF really isn't an offensive or defensive coach, so I think he's more of a manager that lets his staff call things and gives the approval.

I really could care less about awards, but wouldn't saying that a team had talent and went .500 and then the next year saying a team with similar talent go 12-0 be a great indicator the coach did something to be awarded? Saying that the 2011 team going 6-7 was talented kinda shows that going 12-0 the next year was about more than just the players.

Probably good Tressel didn't win COTY, considering everyone would have been calling on the league to rescind it a few years later.

If there's anything I care less about than individual awards, its the NCAA saying things didn't happen.

Ya, I mean I'm not saying he wouldn't have deserved it or it wasn't impressive. I was just merely pointing out that:

A. Any fan who really thought Meyer (or anyone from OSU) had a chance in hell of winning an award is delusional and it's stupid to complain and

B. Saying Meyer took them from "a losing record" to undefeated, while true, is misleading in the intent. Would it have been significantly less impressive if OSU was 6-6 or 7-6 the year before? Yes they had a losing record, but really they were a .500 team and it's not like he did some major overhaul of the team/program.

Noah Spence was deemed the next superstar DE after the spring he had as an edge rusher.

Armani Reeves won the #3 corner job this spring behind Bradley Roby and Doran Grant

Cam Williams was in the two deep last year at MIKE linebacker, seems to be behind Curtis Grant, Ryan Shazier, Joshua Perry, and David Perkins though at this point with stud freshmen recruits Trey Johnson and Mike Mitchell yet to hit campus.

Is the LSU thing confirmed? I read that they were considering it but nothing has been set in stone yet. If that does happen, you've got to think it's only a matter of time before we play Arkansas, right?

Also, it'd be nice to get a game like that closer to the midwest. Lucas Oil Stadium?

Gotta give them credit for getting at it at least. I love big non conference games.

I'm also hoping to get to play Rutgers at the Meadowlands.

I don't know if it's been confirmed. I would like to get a game against Arkansas or if they stick with the higher caliber SEC teams, get Florida.

Minnesota schedules a home and away with TCU for 2014 and 2015.

That's quite the shocker considering the cupcakes that Coach Kill was pushing for.

Looks like TCU really wants to compete with the formerly known Big Ten, with Ohio State also in 2018 and 2019. Looking forward to it though, I like how we schedule a tough non-conference, win or lose. LSU this year opening the season up in Cowboy Stadium.

That's what I LOVE about the teams like Wisconsin, Ohio State, Michigan, and Michigan State.. they're not afraid to go play tough Non-Conference Games. Iowa always plays the "smaller" teams to get the "easy win" but then often times squeak by them.

I think Ferentz and Barta need to man up and start playing some tougher opponents. They also need to look at themselves in the mirror.

This is going to be a terrible, terrible year for Iowa Football. It's going to be hard to watch.

Some years the Buckeyes have big OOC games. I love them, and with a playoff I think they're even better. An early non conference loss won't exclude you from the playoffs in most cases, unless the two teams are fighting for a spot at the end.

I know OSU announced a few exciting home and homes in the future. I hope that's a consistent thing. Loved the games against teams like Texas and USC a few years back.

Right now OSU has VT, UNC, Oklahoma, TCU, Oregon, and Texas all scheduled for home and homes. But this season the biggest one is @Cal.

I mean, even VT, TCU, and UNC are exciting games for you guys. I'd LOVE for something like that. Even like a Georgia Tech, Oregon State, Tennessee or Georgia.

We have Northern Illinois, Western Michigan and Missouri State. There's not intriguing nor fun about those games. They're so stuck on saving transportation money and possibility of a loss to broaden the talent they play. Hell, if I'm a player I'd rather play the big time schools than smaller schools. Ain't nobody going to brag if you're playing at a Big 10 school and you beat Missouri State.

Iowa's always done it that way, and that's what makes me get more and more sick of the Hawkeyes.

They are releasing the 2014 schedule pretty soon. I can't believe this is actually happening(Rutgers playing B1G football).

Iowa's 2014 schedule is very favorable:

Aug. 30 Northern Iowa
Sept. 6 Ball State
Sept. 13 Iowa State
Sept. 20 at Pittsburgh
Sept. 27 at Purdue *
Oct. 11 Indiana
Oct. 18 at Maryland
Nov. 1 Northwestern *
Nov. 8 at Minnesota *
Nov. 15 at Illinois *
Nov. 22 Wisconsin *
Nov. 28 Nebraska *

Our 2 crossover games are Indiana and Maryland, avoid Michigan, OSU, MSU, and PSU. No getting to play Rutgers though. :(

Wow, Big Ten keeping up the tradition of screwing the new guy. Your two crossover games just so happen to be Wisconsin and Nebraska?
