    Who would you rather play?

    Oregon, USC, Boise St, Cinci, or loser of Bama/Fla?

    This of course if we don't make it to the NC game.

    i would love a rematch with USC in the rosebowl. it will give us a chance to settle the score with the orange bowl collapse. it could also give us the top preseason position going into next year.

    Playing Florida wouldn't be so bad after the way the last game against them ended.

    Iowa needs to meet Florida again sometime in the next four or five years. It'd definitely be worth the potential loss. USC can wait.

    And USC has already used more luck than Iowa. They are not a top 10 team.

    I'd like to see us get a shot at Alabama - that Ingram (I hope that's spelled correctly) kid is awfully impressive . I'd like to see what our defense could do against a player of his caliber.

    Re: Who would you rather play?

    I think the biggest downside to the Bama/Florida loser is that the loser of that game is going to be down and possibly uninterested in their game as their eyes were set on a national title. So if we do beat them, that's going to be the excuse. I think an Iowa/Cinci game would place two teams against each other that would play their hearts out and leave it on the field. I would love to see that but I don't think a win against Cinci does any favors in terms of gaining respect for our program or the conference. So I'm kind of torn. A win against USC never hurts you but that doesn't interest me really. So in the end, I think we are better served playing the SEC #2.

    I think Oregon would be an afterthought - nobody would watch that game. We need a name to compete with and that is either USC, Florida, or Alabama. I like our chances against Florida - they won last week but they were exposed.

    Re: Who would you rather play?

    I'd be thrilled to watch the Hawks slowly suffocate any of those teams.

    That said, my choice would be USC or either of the ESSEEESEEESPEED teams. Any of those three, though, really. Just watching the WWL and the rest of the inept, mindlessly-parrot-the-current-media-narrative national sports media have to eat crow because the superduper magic awesome Florida/Bama/USC got beat by unsexy bad-for-ratings IOWA, and watching them sputter and bluster and hominah-hominah their way through coverage of a Hawkeye victory would be so, so sweet.

    I'd be ok with either Bama or USC. The spread and athletic ability of the others would be a difficult matchup (not saying we wouldn't have a chance).
