It's weird, I find myself rooting against Iowa State when they play a Louisiana, for example. I love to see them lose to teams like this to knock them down a peg, or two. I usually root for them though when they play Oklahoma or some other team in the B12. I don't really care honestly...but it's ok to see them have success in the B12.This kind of sycophancy is just fkn embarrassing coming from a "journalist." Randy prolly wears a dental dam and knee pads whenever he prepares to interview Campbell.
Seriously. Try to read it without feeling uncomfortable.
Matt Campbell envisioned something like this happening back in 2015. He said back then that Iowa State winning the Big 12 wasn't impossible.www.desmoinesregister.com
"Saturday’s 42-6 victory against West Virginia to seal the best regular-season record in the Big 12 Conference was the significant occurrence for Iowa State football since ...
... Well, it’s the best ever, unless you want to retroactively count the November 2015 day Matt Campbell said yes to athletics director Jamie Pollard."
That article in The Register is ridiculous. Talk about Oklahoma...fine. Texas sucks and has sucked for a long time...one ten win season in 13 years. Tell me where they have done anything nationally in what 12 or 13 years. Peterson talking about how there is no hiding in the Big 12...LOL...you have to play everyone. LOL. You have to play Oklahoma and the shadow they cast over the entire league. The 9 other teams that don't play any defense and Oklahoma State and Kansas State have sucked ass the last three years. The B12 is a terrible football conference right now.
I know it's proper to give the Cyclones credit...they deserve it...they are in the B12 championship game. It's a huge accomplishment for the Iowa State program. But don't act like the did it beating a bunch of great teams in the SEC...or an Ohio State or Wisconsin. Please. Iowa State hasn't beaten Iowa in 6 years. Campbell has never beaten Iowa. They would have had a shot this year though with the way we started...but I don't think they beat Iowa if we play them right now.
