    I would give Iowa a C-

    What hurt the grade? - The losses to North Dakota State and Northwestern. Plus, the close game against Rutgers. If they lost to NDSU and then dominated NW and Rutgers, then it wouldn't be so bad. But Iowa was a horrible team during that time for no reason.

    What helped the grade? - November. Iowa bounced back from getting dominated by Penn State by upsetting Michigan. Iowa's running game really picked up and they did a better job against the run game. They also had a 30-point win over Nebraska.

    What else contributed to the grade? - Iowa came in expected to win the B1G West and easily get 10+ wins. So, failing to reach expectations hurt them. With who they struggled against and failing to reach expectations, they should be a D+, but how they did in November brings them to a C-. Now if they were expected to be an 8-win team, then I might consider them to be a C+.

    Georgia gets a D.

    Blown out by Ole Miss
    Embarrassed by Florida again
    Pissed away games vs Tennessee, Vanderbilt and even Georgia Tech.

    No O-line, all of our receivers are smaller slot receivers with brick hands, and a 7-5 record is the result.

    The upset of Auburn is the only thing that keeps us from getting an F.

    That's about right. The middle of the season was rough. The loss of Vandeberg hurt a lot more than I thought it would. Took awhile to figure out the offense without him. Injury to Kittle didn't help either. Ultimately if Iowa can win their bowl they'll probably finish within a few spots of where they started so C/C- is about right. Even with that the Hawks were in every game save PSU so it was close to being better but just didn't make plays in a few games. Kind of reminds me of the 08 team that started 5-4 and then beathe #3 PSU and rolled to a 9-4 finish which set up a really good 09. Hopefully we can do the same next year

    Yep. Cuz we suck. That's why Boise gets the D+ from me. Because we played another shit schedule and embassingly lost two games against it. Couldn't even win our pathetic division for the second year in a row. Completely unacceptable.

    USC - New rookie head coach, come out of the blocks looking like a newborn giraffe trying to walk and get the Rose Bowl and top ten ranking. Solid B

    Were you the Boise fan who at the begging of the season was saying USCs got talent but the head coach (Helton) wasn't good?

    I'm looking forward to the Trojans and Sooners both getting good enough to meet again in the NC game. We owe you guys big time. :suds:
