Shonn Greene - Star of the Day...
Iowa is better than last year. Sadly, we loss our first road test. Thankfully, Iowa beat ISU and will enter the Big Ten 3-1 this year, rather than 2-1.
Iowa left a lot of plays out on the field.
Special teams - break downs...missed FG bad snap leading to bad punt and change in field position break downs on the return coverage break downs on punt returns - Iowa allowed the ball to drop a little more this game than early in the season... remember the sliding catches at Kinnick.
The coaching staff played the odds and lost with Jake Christensen. Is it all terrible.
I don't think so, if Iowa moves to Ricky Stanzi at quarterback.
The coaching staff need to pull Christensen as a starter... period.
Let Stanzi play things out. You can bring Christensen as a sub, a reliever, which is the best he likely will ever be.
Iowa's offense, defense and special teams need to get ready for the real season.
Should Iowa be 3-1? Yes.
Could Iowa have been 4-0. Yes.
Iowa's most important game in September is the Big Ten opener. I know many will say ISU.
But, it's really Northwestern.
Iowa know has the taste of loss in their mouths.
This was a TEAM loss. Let's see what the character is of this team.
The coaching staff made some plays today.
But, we saw another good, bad, and ugly game.
