You see that pump up video above this? That's a pump up video for a team that hangs up sympathy banners for bowl games they've attended. That's right. I said attended, not won.
Sure, Iowa doesn't have the same pedigree as a Nebraska or an Oklahoma, but they've got something right? Well....maybe not.
They've been to 32 bowl games in their history, going 16-15-1. But they do have four national titles...just none of them in the last 59 years. They do have 13 conference championships that they can put up, but it might look small compared to Nebraska's 46 or Oklahoma's 48.
Maybe I'm starting to see why they are excited about losing in a bowl game.
