    Iowa Destroyed Us Today

    Is Iowa that good or are we that bad?

    I think perhaps Iowa is really that good.

    Hopefully we'll show improvement for next week. I still believe in this team and this coaching staff.

    Iowa is a very good football team, but we played like ***.

    They are that good, and we are a bit worse than we thought. The Big 12 is still tough to predict. Colorado looked good last week and got pasted today, Kansas was horrible last week and beat GT today. We could still pull out 2-4 wins in the Big 12.

    I agree, Iowa controlled the ball, kept the offense on the sidelines and the defense just was not good enough. Later in the 2nd and in the 3rd quarter, the defense began to make plays and forced Iowa to punt it, but it was too late then.

    Iowa is a talented team dominated by seniors. We played hard but made too many mistakes on offense (again). I still think this is a team that can win 4 to 6 games. This game will humble the team and motivate them for the rest of the season.

    We have bad days like other teams, I think we were a bit too worked up for today. So therefore we had a pretty bad day.

    We scored more than 100% more points than last year ;)
    Baby steps I guess.

    Re: Iowa Destroyed Us Today

    Iowa is damn good, and their offensive line really just dominated our front 4. I thought our offensive line played reasonably well, but AA just never got on track at all.

    I was kind of surprised, because I expected less problems against their offense, and more against their defense. I know that's a strange statement when our O was shut down for most of the game, but that seemed to be a function of a quarterback pressing or lacking confidence rather than the offense as a whole being dominated.

    Learning experience, on to next week.

    By the laws of mathematical progression, we should send them into OT in the year 2017.

    2009: 35-3
    2010: 35-7
    2011: 35-11
    2012: 35-15
    2013: 35-19
    2014: 35-23
    2015: 35-27
    2016: 35-31
    2017: 35-35

    Or, if our scoring increases mathematically as it has the last two years (2.5X per year):

    2009: 35-3
    2010: 35-7
    2010: 35-17
    2011: 35-42

    I like scenario 2 better.

    Re: Iowa Destroyed Us Today

    Iowa is very good. Our quarterback play is mediocre at best as usual under Arnaud, and you can't beat good teams and compete in the big 12 with a DL that is small and lacks talent. Pretty much sums it up.
