Via SBNation:

Iowa? No. 5? That makes sense!

by Jason Kirk

ESPN is very good at this.

Each week, the College Football Playoff committee reveals its top 25. It does this on a television show. The television show unveils that top 25 team-by-team, building to a point of drama in the rankings. The three previous sentences could all be met with a "Why?" and the answer to each "Why?" would be that it's dramatic TV.

This week, the drama point came at Nos. 4 through 6. We knew Clemson would be No. 1, and we knew Alabama and Ohio State would follow in some order. ESPN revealed Notre Dame was No. 4, and then heavy lessons about the committee and modern football ideologies and two put-upon geographic regions hung in the balance.

The Iowa Hawkeyes' logo appeared at No. 5, with Baylor's showing up at No. 6. Drama gave way to emotion. American fullbacks raised on starch triumphed over the rowdy Texas bullies who've played nobody. Or the gritty Texas underdogs were disrespected yet again by the committee in favor of a bigger school. Your choice.

The case for Iowa at No. 5 is simple. The Hawkeyes are undefeated, as are the Bears, but are 9-0 against a much better schedule. Beating Illinois, Northwestern, Pitt and Wisconsin gives Iowa four wins over teams with winning records. Baylor has zero of those. Zero of those in mid-November. The Bears have put a billion points on the scoreboard, and their scheduling strategy is actually brilliant, but the thing of it is that it relies on other teams messing up. Iowa hasn't messed up.

Now the discussion starts flipping, as Baylor welcomes No. 12 Oklahoma, followed by trips to No. 8 Oklahoma State and No. 15 TCU, while Iowa's schedule is no big deal at all until the likely Big Ten Championship. We'll see how things stack up in December, but on November 11, Iowa's a good No. 5.


This is the correct analysis and has been so all along, and why the #9 ranking last week didn't make any sense. To move up to 5 after beating Indiana doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense either, but at this point, they have a better resume than any of the Big 12 teams, and really more so than Ohio State at this point. But their schedule sucks the rest of the way and so they should deservedly slide back as undefeated teams behind them get wins against better opponents. The Big 12 is a monster the rest of the way for all of the good teams, if OSU or Baylor comes out undefeated, they'll be in for sure. If Iowa goes 13-0, they deserve a spot in the playoffs. If they don't, then they don't (barring some absolute craziness over the next month).

Iowa drew more people to Kinnick Stadium for a wrestling match (42,287) than 70 FBS teams are averaging for home games in 2015.


Not bad.

UofI PD posted that on their twitter suggesting a move to Ames and tagged the ISU PD. Those guys (or at least the dude running twitter) seem to have a great sense of humor. How many beatings/shootings do they deliver per year, BD?

It is an entertaining site. They actually haven't been investigated too much for brutality though they did get some notoriety for tazing a kid who was walking in the middle of the road a couple years ago. Dude was a douche though and probably deserved it.

As the kids say, our BO uniforms on Saturday were hot fire.

I am not a fan of black out uniforms, but since black is one of Iowa's primary colors, those look really sweet.

I, for one, am all-in for the Hawks as far as B1G schools go. Love the color scheme, fun fanbase (at least on Twitter), new blood, plus ALL THE PUNTS!
