You knew Iowa wouldn't have been able to repeat that same performance this week against Wisconsin. It's really difficult week after week to keep the kids grounded and focused. Look no further than O$U. They got worked but completely dismantled M$U. Where you play also makes a huge difference. Home field can be worth 2-3 TDs alone depending on the opponent. Notre Dame and Georgia and Michigan State found that out yesterday. Michigan won't be easy but sure glad they are playing in Madison as...
1. Saturday's slow start was about the fumbles. I don't see that as something that is going to keep happening. 2. Northwestern was having some success moving the ball with that option to our left, but overall I'm not worried about the D. 3. Agree they will go as far as Hornibrook takes them. I see that as a positive not a negative. Last week wasn't a fluke. He gets Fumagalli back, he'll be fine. 4. Agree about Shaw.
Yes we want Iowa to win. They win and they are in the Top 20 easily. The Badgers need quality wins. You know Iowa cannot sustain this next week and the Bucks are having a letdown from their big comeback win last week. If we remember the Badgers played Ohio State really tough a year or two ago and the Bucks won but then went to Penn State the following week and had nothing left. Iowa is playing well over their heads and I see this as a similar situation.
Hundley looks like a high schooler you plucked off the field and just told him to go play pro ball. He's literally had 2 quarters of football (4th Q last week, 1st Q against the Saints) where he looked like a pro. The other 15 he's been terrible. No wonder Ted, er Elliot, was "this close" to acquiring Brian Hoyer.
Let me say I am delighted to be wrong about this game. And after watching Atlanta struggle against the Bears, I hope I am wrong about next week. To be fair, I only suggested that I feared a slow, and typical MM start, could put us at 0-2. Never the less, I have a nice merlot that goes well with crow, and I am enjoying it! Hell of a job by the defense. (are we allowed to say that now?) And, lastly, for MM....SCREEN PASS!!!! More than once please, when facing an aggressive DLine.

Pass rush wasn't the problem last night. Ball was consistently out of Ryan's hands fast. I don't get what Dom and the staff are trying do with the DBs. There were so many times when the corners were 7-10 yards off the line last night. Especially against Sanu. It was easy pitch and catch. It also looked like Dom hit the panic button in the second quarter after Atlanta was finding recievers open all over the field. King was put on Jones. Josh Jones was put in the middle. I thought King was...
Yes- not impressed with the up and down of the OL and the offense. Teams are up to speed on Hornibrook and until he becomes dangerous in one on ones downfield teams will go 8 in the box and dare them downfield. But NW is always a tough matchup. Took care of biz, get to work this week and get it rolling.
