Hawkeye Defense Saves the Day

The Iowa defense came to play on Saturday and that’s a good thing, because the offense did more harm than good for half of the contest.

Iowa football isn’t in Ohio State’s elite company

Kirk Ferentz made a game plan he thought would give his Iowa Hawkeyes the best chance to win against Urban Meyer and the Ohio State Buckeyes. Control the time of possesion by depending on running back Mark Weisman and not forcing sophomore quarterback Jake Rudock to beat the Big Ten’s best team by passing the ball.

Midterms: Quarterback Play

The Hawkeyes have played six games thus far in the 2013 season, which means we’re at the midway point.  Time for us to hand out some midterm report cards and we’ll begin with the play at quarterback.

The Worst Result: Hawkeyes Lose Opener

What would have been worse; getting blown out at home by Northern Illinois or actually showing a semblance of an offense for one half and then looking just like 2012 in the second and losing on a last second field goal? Yeah, me too. I think what played out in Iowa City on Saturday in Kinnick Stadium was very, very tough to take. Here are some quick takes with more to come through...
