I'd say we are a top 5 program. Name 5 better programs than us right now.

Alabama

Ohio State?
Florida State?

Look at the last 10 years - not many have accomplished as much as we have, and (Les haters unite!) we have one of the very best coaches most programs would kill to have.

That would be a long-winded answer...

Bottom line (without going into economics and demographics and such )....

Why would I not live here?

Check the OB bowl site, there are a number of activites that both teams will participate in. So yes, and LSU will show up within a day or as well.

Spending Christmas in a hotel instead of with family? I'm sure there was a reason why they did this, just know our coaches and players are with families today. The out of state players are with local guys.

They seriously showed up to a non BCS bowl 8 days early? Their super bowl?


BCS game or not, It's part of their bowl prep plan to get to the site a few days early so the players can get acclimated to the warmer climate (Iowa hasn't practiced outdoors in almost a month). Teams from the south don't normally have to adjust like cold weather teams do.

Also, FWIW, Iowa held their 11th bowl practice yesterday (Christmas).
