Although for some the honeymoon period may have come to an end, something to consider is how our rival to the east fared in their first couple of seasons under KF. He was 4-19 during his first two seasons at Iowa, and it can be argued that he took over a team with more talent. I love our guys, but don't forget where we are at. Last year we won four games and they all came down to the last few seconds. Last year exposed a drop off in our talent level. You can't fix that quickly. It's going to take time to recruit and develop players. This new staff had to scramble to put together a recruiting class last season. Bret had a bad game and we don't have enough talent to overcome that. Hopefully Bret can get that corrected. My hope is that people don't lose hope, but keep realistic expectations. Winning at any level is more about talent then it is about X and Os. You can have the best chef and the best recipe, but if you lack the ingredients, you're still not going to end up with a good product.
