    Offensive line play in the 2nd half. Did Iowa just outnumber us up front, or did the OL lay an egg?

    Success of passing on first down vs. running on first down

    Without rewatching I cn tell you they outnumbered us up there. There were a couple plays that they had all 11 up within a few yards and even the Iowa fans I was with were screaming, "Audible out of the read option" It seemed Iowa figured out at half time certain formations we were running and it blew my mind we didn't switch out of them.

    Steele was 7 for 8 passing when throwing on 1st down. Also Iowa had a pass interference called against them in the 1st quarter on a 1st down pass. Very successful passing on 1st down. Not sure on the rushing but I can't imagine it was as successful.

    Edit make that 8 for 9

    Re: Rewatching Iowa Game

    First thought: We looked really good on the first drive, we had a great skript of plays and great execution. Horne's TD was all him though. He had a curl to the front of the endzone, then broke off his route and beat his man to the middle of the endzone. Good throw as well.

    Thanks... I had no idea those were the actual stats but it seemed to me whenever we ran on first down we had trouble the rest of the possession most of the time... Glad to see I wasn't just imagining things!

    Re: Rewatching Iowa Game

    Only watching the game live, I never figured out what Iowa did differently defensively in the second half. Also, was the play-calling different? It feels like it, but I wonder if that's only because they were unsuccessful.

    One more: Iowa was credited with 8 drops in the paper. How many of those were "forced drops"? I feel like the DBs did a great job closing on the receiver and forcing some of those drops.

    I know it's backwards, but I feel like this team needs to use the pass to set up the run. we need to use the bubble screens to spread the defense and allow the backs some room.

    It seems contradictory, but I think this team can be a "pass-first" team that has an even balance of pass and run.

    There were 2 I can think of, off the top of my head, late in the game that were flat out drops and they really hurt Iowa. One of them for sure would have been a first down. It was nice seeing that happen to an opponent instead of the cyclones.

    It seemed like a lot. Our defense should get a lot of credit for their drops.

    Re: Rewatching Iowa Game

    Can you grab a screenshot of White's fumble inside the 10 showing his left knee down before the Iowa player's hit jars the ball loose?


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    I agree. I thought our d-backs were all over their receivers for the majority of the game. By the end of the game, they may have been thinking more about getting hit than catching the ball.

    Also helps that their WR corps is not very deep. Beyond Davis, Martin-Manley, and their TE (Fedoro-something), there aren't really any other good receivers.

    Re: Rewatching Iowa Game

    • Kickoffs are not good. Kickoff coverage is very good.
    • Reeves just got called for an absolutely classic "2nd person to shove gets the penalty". Gave the WR a little pop/shove to the facemask after the WR continued a little after the whistle. Stupid play by a SR.
    • Steele is still playing this game not just well, but almost perfect. His first mistake that I can see is at 3:00 on 3rd and 1 he kept it on a read option and got stuffed. There was defender on the edge waiting for Shontrelle but it looked like he could've beat him. Overall it looks like the Hawks just sent more than we had blocking. They had 8 in the box and their defenders just went around and grabbed Steele on it. Any pass would have probably would have worked and definitely a bubble would have worked. Obviously it's a little ridiculous with the benefit of hindsight, just saying.
    • Roughing the kicker was a good call.
    • I'm already ****** about this fumble and it is 5 plays away.
    • SJ just had an incredible play to get a couple yards instead of losing 3.
    • Fumble just happened.
