    Remember... we shoulda won 2 years ago in IC

    My memory is a lil foggy, but i thought we missed at least 1 fg maybe 2. EVen with redshirt frosh Bret Meyer and Flynn rotating in and out, we were in position to win the game.

    And this Iowa team was a lot better than this Iowa team IMO. Iowa was 10-2 and beat LSU with some help from LSU's **** poor defense on the last play.

    I just think Mac and co have noticed Ferentz' "tell" and arent giving it away. They just seem to have Iowa down. Iowa never does anything fancy, they just try and do the simple things really well. But i dont think they're good enough to get by on the simple things this year.

    Itlll be fun to see who covers Chandler. Will it be the faster Bowen or the rougher McKenzie? Or maybe the taller Carper? I hope they kinda play a box n 1 with Chandler.

    Bottom line. We come out on top with a 6 point win. If Tate does play well make sure he doesnt finish.

    Remember...that was 2 years ago.

    But you are right...we have played well in Kinnick over the past few years.

    Curious whjat those simnulated games are saying about the upcoming contest (Tate or Tateless).
    Or give it the rocking chair test if we are going to win in Kinnick:

    "Give it the rocking-chair test," a friend of mine used to
    say whenever he saw me scowling about some minor (or major)
    adversity.

    "What's that?" I asked after hearing the phrase for the
    first time.

    "This thing that's troubling you today; will you remember
    it when you're old and sitting in your rocking chair?" the
    friend answered. "If you won't remember it then, you
    probably shouldn't let it bother you too much now. That's
    the rocking-chair test."

    We actually missed 3 field goals in the game. Lost 17-10.

    Plus...Flynn was knocked out of the game near the end...putting Meyer in to lead the final drive from about our own 20. In that game...Meyer had played some but Flynn was doing better, tossing the lone TD pass to none other than Todd Blythe.

    That was sweet. He outjumped a couple of smaller d-backs, then dragged them around 12 yards into the endzone. Two of them, if I remember correctly.

    Actually, IIRC, it was 9 of them and it was uphill in a September snowstorm.

    actually Meyer was the one knocked out. he was the one 'leading' the team. Flynn then had to come in on the 'game winning' drive.

    Re: Remember... we shoulda won 2 years ago in IC

    the years we rotated quarterbacks absolutely sucked. both quarterbacks needed time to warm up sadly it was during the game. the offensive line reacted differently when new QB came in. the kicking game sucked its all improved since then except for the Defense.


    Cause the moon told me to and its watching us right now

    No...it wasn't. I specifically remember watching Flynn stumble to the sidelines. The hit came at the end of the field we were sitting in.

    Re: Remember... we shoulda won 2 years ago in IC

    It was definitely Meyer playing that last drive. I don't know how many Hawk fans came up to me after that and told me they felt Flynn would have lead us to a TD, and I remember at the time thinking that Flynn should be the starterm over Meyer. My, how things change....

    Re: Remember... we shoulda won 2 years ago in IC

    I think that Scott Chandler is important but containing AY on first down will be a telltale sign. Hopefully our defense has learned a few things in practice the last two weeks, which well help us got off the field when we put teams in 3rd down situations. That by far is the most frustrating part of our defense thus far.....our inability to take advantage of good defense on 1st and 2nd downs.

    The past couple years our offense was the beneficiary of a defense that could get off the field and give us good field position....in addition to the occasional turnover. Of course our offense is going to struggle to score points if the avg starting point is the 20 and the other team chews up the clock on there side. Also, I'm still waiting for the reverses/trick play packages with Flynn so we can keep these defenses honest. And finally, I'm gonna have an ulcer if I don't see TB catch a ball this week!
