Northwestern is down their two starting DT's and coming off a 1-8 conference season. Steele Petras and Tyler Goodson should have a field day

Maybe they will put the mini-option in. That was one thing Jantz was good at, the qb/tb option.

They’ll get to 5. Not sure exactly where. Best bets:
1. Nebraska
2. Minnesota
3. Penn State
4. Wisconsin
5. Extra game
4 wins puts them most likely 4th in the west. If they would play #4 from the east that's going to be Penn St, Michigan or Indiana. Which of those 3 do you feel you can compete with?

So they are doing a crossover thing at the end? Who do they actually play?

No. That was my order of our chances to win games after NW, MSU and Illinois.
How confident are you that you beat Northwestern? I don't see any way either in state schools lose Saturday but some Iowa fans are concerned about this depleted Northwestern squad who only won one conference game last season

Northwestern looks like a more complete team right now.

I said I think they’ll get to 5. No idea who. They’ll win one or two they shouldn’t and probably lose another they shouldn’t.
That's very fair. I need to see how they do this weekend before I think they'll get to 5. A typical Kirk team in a regular year would get to 5 wins with 8 games, but I honestly don't know how good Iowa is. This could be a down year for them.

This Iowa fan I follow on Twitter said that Nico Ragaini isn't targeted enough and should not only average 10-12 targets, but have 8 catches, 130 yards, with 1-2 TD's PER GAME. Lol

So this guy is saying at the end of the year, Nico should have 64 catches, 1040 yards, and let's say 12 TD's? That's insane. Those are All-American numbers in an 8 game season.

On a team with Smith-Marsette, Smith, and Tracy, I think it's a better argument that Ragaini is targeted too much.

As for how many wins, if the quarterback doesn't get a whole lot better they won't win very many. Same ******* player they've had at that position since Tate graduated. Cannon for an arm but has no idea where it's going and can't read the field for ****
