    Iowa -17.5

    Early line has Iowa as a 17.5 pt favorite. I would expect that line to grow.

    I'm hoping that Meyer, Blythe, the entire offensive line, and the entire defense come out with a chip on their shoulder and can maybe pull out an upset. I don't think anyone is really counting on it but it'd be nice to see Meyer all the sudden play like the 4 year starter he is, see the o-line begin to throw some weight around, see more than a couple passes a game thrown to Blythe, and see the defense play well. Maybe the offense will sustain a few drives and put some points on the board so the defense doesn't get so tired. It's not that hard to do on NCAA Football 2008 for xbox 360 so how hard can it be in real life? Just press the A button to throw the ball to Blythe and he'll jump up and catch it every time!

    Iowa's offense might not be on par with Kent St or UNI. I haven't seen the box score from the Syracuse game, but in the Northern Illinois game, they really struggled. My guess is we will blitz a lot, and sit on the run, and trying to make them beat us through the air. Their defense is far, far better than what we have faced, so if things don't turn around quickly, it could be tough to get points. I don't think Iowa will get more than 20 points, so my goal for the offense would be 21 minimum.

    The way Iowa's defense has played so far I just hope we don't get shutout.

    That is exactly what Syracuse decided to do and Jake TORHCED them for 300 yards and 4 Passing TDs.

    Seems like our offense is pretty good until they decide to shoot themselves in the foot. Our defense, however, is giving up way too much.

    Re: Iowa -17.5

    I really hate to say this, but I will take Iowa to cover. I would say ISU will only score 6, but that would imply that Shaggy could make a FG. So I will say we get 6 the easy way, TD with a botched extra point (again) late in the 4th to avoid the shoutout.

    Iowa 27
    ISU 6
