    A funny thing happened

    Iowa State and Iowa are tied right now with 15 INT's each. By a quick look it looks like both schools are leading the country in INT's. How is that possible since we are always looked at as slow midwest kids and the SEC has all the fast athletes. I hate Iowa but this stat is pretty cool.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: A funny thing happened

    Fast athletes don't necessarily get picks. Being in the right place at the right time does (see: Sash, Iowa vs. Iowa State, fall 2009). Speed can help you get there faster, but it can also run you by the play faster. Playing smart gets turnovers, and both Iowa and Iowa State do that most of the time.

    You are right. It's the perceptiong that fast is the key.

    Re: A funny thing happened

    According to the stats site I look at we have 13, for 5th in the country.

    Your point is still good, however.

    It's proof both defenses are very well coached.

    As much as it pains some of you, any time we can be mentioned along w/ Iowa's D it is a good thing.

    I also saw that it says that Iowa State has 13 but it also says we have ZERO forced fumbles

    Re: A funny thing happened

    Even more impressive were that most of them were against elite QBs like Ricky Stanzi, Grant Gregory, Blake Szymanski, and Zac Lee.

    Wait, nevermind.

    As much as it pisses me off to say it, Stanzi is still leading the #4 team in the nation.

    Good thing Reesing puts up awesome numbers against awesome defenses like Iowa State and disappears against Oklahoma.

    Iowa is due for a loss.
