What could have been in 2008... for the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Four losses by a total of 12 points, Iowa is considered a Top 30 team by this Las Vegas site. I clearly agree with their #1 choice, with the Florida Gators at this point.

Iowa's losses this year came at Pitt, vs. Northwestern, at Michigan State and at Illinois in '08. I projected Iowa to finish 5-3 in the Big Ten. Wins over Purdue and at Minnesota to close out the regular season would get Iowa to 5-3 in the Big Ten.

This is a young Iowa team that has had very good senior leadership with WR Andy Brodell, TE Brandon Myers, C Rob Bruggeman, RG Seth Olson, DT Matt Kroul, DT Mitch King, and CB Bradley Fletcher, all starters this season. This weekend's game vs. Purdue is Senior Day for Iowa.
