    The Big Ten West race is still a little muddled now but is a little more clear after today's games. The current stsndings Wisc 6-2 IOWA 6-2 MINN 5-3 PURDUE 5-3 Wisc can clinch the division with a win over Minn or a loss by Purdue and a loss by Iowa. Wisc would win a 2-way tie at 7-2 berween...

    IKM fumbles

    I am rooting for Ivory Kelly-Martin to have a great super senior season, but he just can't seem to hang onto the ball. Is it time to pull IKM from the regular rotation and let Gavin Williams become the new official #2 RB. Sounds like Gavin Williams is better at pounding the ball too. Even if...

    Iowa-Kent State Stat

    Here is an interesting stat. Kent State leads the country with 8 interceptions in 2 games. Iowa is currently 2nd in the country with 6 interceptions in 2 games. I think the odds of there being a few picks in the Iowa-Kent State game are pretty good.

    Big Ten Media Days

    Iowa players joining Ferentz are center Tyler Linderbaum, wide receiver Tyrone Tracy Jr., defensive end Zach VanValkenburg Linderbaum was a no brainer. I thought it was strange with Iowa's strength in the secondary that none of the DB were on the list. Also interesting that RB Goodson is...

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/predominantlyorange.com/2019/12/28/denver-broncos-iowa-nate-stanley-2020-nfl-draft/amp/ This article seems to think so. Stanley's effenciency at running the QB sneak and converting short yardage plays like 4th and 1 could potentially be useful to certain teams...

    Hey Iowa beat a conference champ this year

    Congratulations to Miami-Ohio, who won the MAC championship game today. Remember that pesky little true freshman QB that started his first game ever against Iowa. He threw the game winning TD today.

    Kirk's Last Year?

    Could 2019 be Kirk Ferentz last year as Iowa head coach? He turns 65 on Aug 1, 2020. He already has the all time record for football coaching victories at Iowa, passing Hayden Fry in 2018. QB Nate Stanley will finish his career in 2019. His son Brian will have 3 years experience as OC, enough...

    Is there any proof icing a kicker works?

    Is then any statistical proof that kickers overall do worse after an opposing coach calls timeout to "ice" the kicker? If not, why are they wasting everybody's time? Just get it over with! Today it did not work for Ferentz in the first half and did not work for Frost in the 2nd half. All...

    Is it possible that Iowa is just unlucky?

    Iowa has played 5 games in 2018 that were close late in the 4Q. ISU, Wisc, PSU, Purdue, & NW. Iowa ended up 1-4 in those 5 games, including losing the last 4. Historically over time, Iowa ususlly ends up winning about 48% of these close games. This has been proven through statistical...

    Rethinking non-conference schedule

    NW and Purdue both scheduled 2 tough P5 in non-conference, got off to lousy starts and both also lost to MAC teams. It looked like their seasons were going to be disasters. But then they both ended up beating Iowa and now have better records in conference than Iowa. So is it better for...

    How Iowa could still win the West Division

    It's a long shot but If Iowa goes 7-1 the rest of the way, with the 1 loss probably @PSU, then maybe. . Wisc still needs to play @Mich, @NW and @PSU. If Wisconsin loses all 3 of those games, then Iowa wins the division at 7-2, 10-2 Oh, who am I kidding. It's over. Time to start looking at...
