You can rag on the coaches all you want, but Iowa's QB cost them dearly today, with his tunnel vision.
Iowa left a lot of plays on the field with their offense, defense and special teams... this game was a lot like the game at Pitt earlier in the season, where Iowa lost 20-21.
It was great to see the fight in Iowa, coming back from 15 points down, but it wasn't Iowa's day... it was Ron Zook's Fighting Illini's day.
It will not get any easier for Iowa (5-4, 2-3 Big Ten). The Hawkeyes will host #2 Penn State (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten), who have bye week to prepare for the Hawkeyes. Kinnick Stadium will have to get behind the Hawkeyes in their bid at a key upset in the race to the BCS for the Nittany Lions.
