    Congrats ISU Fans

    the better team won the game. I totally misread this game heading into it. ISU made a ton of strides between game one and two, and I really don't know which I would rate higher; Jantz's performance today or Wallace in 2002.

    Iowa played a cleaner game(fewer turnovers,penalties) Iowa State made the plays
    simple as that.

    Questions:
    1. Iowa OLine disappoint or was ISU dline better than expected?
    2. Was Iowa Dline instructed to have "controlled rush" to contain Jantz or was ISU just that good up front?

    Curious about anything else that surprised other than Jantz being crazy and ISU receivers stepping up huge.

    Re: Congrats ISU Fans

    I still felt after 2002 game that Iowa gave it away in many ways...dont feel that way today.

    Re: Congrats ISU Fans

    Thank you, Jon. Nice write up on your team on HN by the way.

    We left at least 13 points on the board today (touchdown on the first drive and two missed field goals). If it weren't for our own mistakes...we win this easily. I don't know what that says about Iowa though.

    I feel fine about Iowa OL...ISU was committing a lot of resources to stop the run and were really overplaying Iowa's zone scheme flow...run blitzing...Iowa had counters open on that, never did it. Had a lot of 1 on 1 with WR, stubborn.

    Iowa State OL was good today. I think our fears of Iowa DL not being able to rush passer with four, like they have done for the last five years, was rammed home today.

    Not trying to be mean but ISU should have won by a wide margin. Credit to Iowa for keeping it close.

    Thanks for the post, Jon. Fantastic game by both teams. Too bad one had to lose. Steele was just amazing today. Good luck to the Hawks the rest of the way!
