Cant argue with you here. Smith doesn't even look like a Division One receiver other than his raw physical attributes. He doesn't run good routes and can't catch the ball. Our pass rush took this game over late in the second quarter and once we got up 17-0 you weren't going to see much passing. There will be opportunities down the road to see what kind of passing game we have, or don't have.More like NIU is tired. All teams have to do is load box, stop run. We have no passing game again.
True. This stat line isn’t going to cut it.11/23 for 101 yards passing is sorry. Solid win for the Hawks but I’m sick of talented qbs having that stat line at Iowa.
I can't emphasize how intellectually dishonest, ignorant or dumb some people are.
BF can't be blamed for dropped passes or overhrows. If you want to blame him for something, then blame him for not getting better players, however he has closed on some of our better players. So not sure how good that would do.
I can wait for sure!!!! But his Pop may behind the Gameplan no? Who is surprised at some of those calls.It is what is....Yawn. Go Hawks.we IMPROVED from 112th to 109th last year in Offense (with an alleged NFL caliber QB and RB). He is and offensive GENIUS! Can't wait til he's our HC!
Nah. There was lots of poor execution out there to make a statement that extreme. Can't blame Brian for that.
Unless that is you are trolling us...
The playcalling was awful. The heat and a relentless defensive line wore them out and we got some big runs in the second half on a tired D line. The offense continues to run like an old broken down tractor. There is just no offensive rythem in the playcalling. Why does Iowa seem unable to perform simple plays such as screens, passes to the flat, and worst, our wides never seem to be open. We were better in the second, but the draw on 3 and 15, the 4th and one dive from 5 yards deep, what kind of calls are these? I could go on about the sloppy play but why pile on. When Kirk steps down I hope Phil Parker gets his shot at head coach, more deserving than Brien.
