    Which is worse - offense or defense?

    I still don't believe Iowa is going to have a very good season but we sure are making them look good. Our offense looks out of rhythm and the defense seems to be a step slow to react. It's not over but if we don't make adjustments it could get embarrassing.

    Offense and it's not even close. D isn't good, but has at least played well enough that we should have a chance to win... 13 points a half isn't bad. 0 points on offense is horrendous.

    Offense. Why is this even a discussion?

    Re: Which is worse - offense or defense?

    Good lord...I am sick of this, you just can't leave the defense out there the entire game and expect them to shut the other tema out. You have to score some freaking points.

    Defense is playing pretty well for having been on the field for almost the whole game...

    59 yards of futility. Did we hit double digits on rushing yet?

    The defense is doing the best it can. To only be down 13-0 is a miracle. Teams in the Big 12 would be well on their way to taking us to the woodshed by now

    Re: Which is worse - offense or defense?

    Offense. The defense has a severe lack of talent so they are doing the best they can. The defensive coaches are at least solid enough to get them to play up to their potential.

    The offensive staff on the other hand is a train wreck. The OL has been so pathetic so far this year. The QB play is bad. Play calling is as un-creative as I've ever seen a read option offense be.

    Re: Which is worse - offense or defense?

    Dont be a ******, the defense pretty much played two quarters again a run oriented offense. I'm too lazy to look up time of possession - but not pretty.


    All truisms are false. All of them.
