| Tiger Rant|| re: Iowa fans upset over playing LSU - JawjaTigah on 12/8/13 at 8:32 pm|
Iowa fans are at least as parochial as LSU fans and view their world through Hawkeye-colored glasses. Interesting comments from some of them. Maybe a real SEC team like LSU will help them better understand their particular place in the hiearchy of college football....

Last time we met Iowa's Hawkeyes, Nick Saban was playing his last game as LSU's coach. And Iowa beat the Tigers in a Clemson-like upset. I wonder what Les Miles will have ready for us, and for them, new QB era and all. Won't be much game film for them to prep on....

In other words, I suspect he'd be a...
