    I have 9-3, and I know that is a stretch, and probably a bowl game loss.

    L to Pitt, Wisky, and Neb.
    I hope they don't lose to ISU

    Iowa has strong defense that I believe will pull out 6 wins. They don't face Ohio State, Michigan State, Penn State, or Michigan - all I think would or could beat Iowa.

    I think 10-win season is best case, 6-win is worst case.

    Iowa could easily lose their first 3 games. Now if they somehow find a way to go 2-1/3-0 through those games I may have more hope but I just dont see any playmakers on either side of the ball and our OL ( supposedly ) looked pretty rough in spring ball. If we cant block as well as usual its going to be a LONG ass year. Even if we do block well I just dont see enough to win more than 6 games. Of course these are the years we tend to go 11-1 or 10-2 so there is always hope

    Looking really good today. Just glad we have a QB that's able to make things happen when nothing's there.

    I will admit, Beathard looked really good. I might have been wrong about him. I am not so concerned with his stats. He was playing against a FCS team. They might be #1 in the next rankings, but they still are FCS. But Beathard hit his targets. He scrambled when he saw it. He played better than any QB play last season, including when he played. I would like to see Tevaun Smith utilized more.

    Defense did great job containing strong offense play makers for Illinois State. I was very happy with how they stopped the RB. They struggled against any good RB last year, so it was nice to see them stop him. Phil Parker always had a defense did good containing scrambling QB.

    RB I was most impress with was LeShun Daniels Jr. It is not that he had well over 100 yards rushing. It was against Illinois State defense. Daniels has always been fast and mobile, but he was horrible reading blocks. Saturday, he was amazing reading blocks and he could be a surprise back this season.

    And Ferentz said he was going to shake things up in play-calling. He did shake things up and I hope he continues with it. Play calling was a lot more exciting, and it was obvious fans at the stadium noticed.

    Big game this week. As usual, Hawks the fav in Vegas. As usual, I put no stock in what Vegas thinks is going on for this game. I see Iowa winning a close game 24-23

    Pretty awesome finish by the Hawks yesterday. Our kicking game has come a long way. I don't think we've had a kicker of this caliber since Kaeding and he couldn't even come close to 57 yds. Win ugly baby and go Hawks!

    Sadly I've never been to a game at Kinnick. Bucket list for me. Saw Iowa play in Boulder in the early 90's and a Holiday bowl in the 90's as well.

    I been to a few games. Went to a Northwestern game when I was in junior high when they were awful and Iowa sucked too. We were front row behind the Northwestern bench. Yeah, we annoyed them.

    I also was at a Buffalo and Missouri State. I hope to be at the wrestling meet vs Ok St and the Minnesota game.

    That Buffalo was fun. After halftime, half the people had left and all of the student section was gone because Iowa was up by 30+. It was also before the renovation. I went down and sat in the student section by the football field just yards away from the back of the end zone.

    I make it to 2 or 3 games a year. Had tickets to the Pitt game but gave them away because my lady didn't want to go. Bad decision. Lol
