Two punts in the end zone from the Iowa 35
Horrific kickoff return then a botched punt that resulted in giving Iowa the ball at the 25
That joke at the end



Meanwhile Iowa beats us with a 25 yard drive and field goals cause they have a kicker.


For someone that is manic about attention to detail, Campbell sure allows a lot of slop to happen on special teams.

Got way too conservative offensively when we had a chance to step on their throats as well. Just a lot of learning to do yet for our young coach, who I love to death, but still a long ways to go.

REally Iowa had no business winning this game.

The tackling and pursuit were poor about the last 3-4 games last season, and has been this season so far as well.

Snapping the ball was hard.

Special teams are just one phase that's poor.

As much growth as ISU has made the last 3 years, that last 1.5 quarters were rinse and repeat.

We always fair catch punts, why was he even blocking??
They were actually trying to set up a return that time. But, because we normally always just go for the fair catch and don't have our guys continue blocks beyond 20 yards, mistakes happen like that.
