    Hawk fans sounded the same about Davis as they did for KOK. Amusing.

    Why haven't they announced that Brian Ferentz is the new OC yet?

    I suppose they will interview a few guys before promoting Brian in order to make it look better.

    Did anyone else in the conference play such a lenient schedule?

    I commended, and still do, Iowa for that 2015 season. They can't do much about the conference bringing in two schools that have no business being there while other schools (Purdue) aren't good at the same time.

    Good stuff but it wasn't until the Rose Bowl until we found out what they weren't...the B1G championship game didn't show much since Alabama's playoff game vs. MSU was basically a live practice.

    The same Wisconsin who opened their season with Alabama?

    I know there's going to be some retort about Northwestern beating Stanford and how that somehow justifies Iowa....that was the definition of an anomaly.

    Did you just stop looking after the first game?? Iowa was the only other tough game they had.

    Right.

    But having Alabama on the schedule trumps anything after that vs. what Iowa played.

    It's average but scoring 31 PPG will win a helluva lot of football games at Iowa.

    Did I say it was easy? I just said they didn't play a lot of tough teams last year, which is true.

    There aren't a lot of P5 teams that had that kind of schedule last year.

    I imagine it was actually difficult to show up every week, even against mediocre competition and I've given Iowa credit for doing that. They showed against Stanford that they weren't anything special though.

    Which year?

    Last year when Wisconsin started the season with the cream puff ALABAMA?

    Or this year when they played LSU, Michigan State, Michigan, and tOSU?


    Last year the Wisconsin QB FELL DOWN taking the snap at the goal line. He got stepped on, fell down, and fumbled the ball instead of handing it off for a potential touchdown. That's the kind of gift Wisconsin gave the Iowa Hawkeyes last year.

    Funniest comment I saw, "Greg Davis retires, leaves behind a four page playbook"

    Agree. They want to blame Davis for their offensive woes, and O'Keefe before that. One thing remains the same with both offenses, Captain Kirk. He wants to primarily run the ball, and control the game that way. The problem is with the offense he likes to run, it will continue to be difficult to attract top notch wide receivers to their program. If you are a WR would you want to go there where your top job is to block, or to one of the many programs running the spread offense. Kirk does a great job of coaching up the areas that can be coached, but you can't coach speed.
