    I was in the north end of c deck for the Hawkeyes’ 8th game of 1985. Only game I’ve seen in the Shoe when the visitor was ranked #1

    Since I’m on the topic, the only teams to start AP #1 and finish the season unranked are:

    1950 Notre Dame, 20 teams were ranked that year, first year of the preseason poll.

    1961 Iowa, only 10 teams were ranked
    1962 tOSU, only 10 teams were ranked
    1963 USC, only 10 teams were ranked
    1964 Ole Miss, only 10 teams were ranked

    2012 USC, 25 teams were ranked

    Not to be confused with 2007 when they were preseason #5 and started 0-2.

    Yep, they went from #5 directly to unranked since there was no poll after their first game. The 2 losses were 36-20 at #22 Notre Dame and 38-28 at home to #19 Syracuse.

    In 2007, they went from preseason #5 to #13 (after App St in week 1) to not ranked in two weeks. The second game was a 39-7 home loss to Oregon.

    Edit - this was wrong, they dropped out of the top-25 right after the loss to App St.

    Ah, I found it! 1965 Playboy’s preseason pick was Iowa. The Hawkeyes went 1 - 9. Beating Oregon State in Corvallis for their only win. While it was a bit of a wild hair to pick them #1, other polls ranked them high, just not #1.

    QB Gary Snook was a preseason Heisman hopeful. Coach Jerry Burns was fired and the Buckeyes beat them 38 to 0 in Columbus.

    That's exactly why no one ever believed me when I told them I read Playboy for the college football coverage.

    Playboy went out on a limb, the AP didn’t have Iowa in the preseason Top-10. Playboy had Burns predicted as Coach of the Year, and a couple of other Hawkeyes along with Snook on their preseason All America team.

    More importantly, who was the centerfold in that issue?

    I don't see the need to be discerning with that post when you and @OregonBuckeye posted the erotic messages above...

    I'm just glad he didn't post current pictures of those two women. Which brings to mind that TTUN is a lot like an old woman who was the hot chick in her small town in 1920.
