Nationally, the pundits will not see IA as a poor offense, they will see an excellent Michigan D as being on another level. Sad.

Oline is definitely a huge issue. But inside the 20 the playbook appears to be about 5 plays.

We've moved the ball... but I side the 20 playcalling can make a difference. But your right, oline is and has been an issue
This is not just an o line problem and it isn’t unique this year.
Our offense has ranked in the bottom 20% of FBS for 4-5 years, even with Wirfs & Jackson on the line.

Nope. It’s recruiting failure. No coach could make a Big Ten OL with these kids. Other than Linderbaum none of these dudes should be playing P5 ball. They might develop into that role, but not right now.

The only senior OLineman on the entire roster is a 5’10” former walk-on. That’s a horrible recruiting failure, and it’s not the fault of a brand new coach.
AGREED. Made this point earlier in the season. Iowa under Hayden Fry was much like Wisconsin. Mammoth offensive linemen waiting in the wings. Reload, reload, reload. We are shooting blanks now.

Effing pass to Goodson again. Now stop that Brian and go to something that doesn’t work. Good god man. Get the ball into the hands of your quickest players out in the open field.

Hou guys remember how Stanford butcher us by doing that?

BYU’s old OC Choi would make Brain look like a special needs person in diapers.

Conference title is the highest accomplishment you have complete control over.

But suppose that there is not a chance of winning the Big Championship

And have to settle for a slaughter

Perhaps it would have been better to NOT play for the elusive BIg Championshio
