it's your blog after all.
However after watching the Iowa game again (awful experience) on BTN replay after a skinful at a work function (took some of the pain away)...I have to say there were 4 plays that turned the momentum of the game around in 3rd Quarter...none of which were on Al B.
1) Devin Funchess drops dead on pass
2) Next play...Devin Funchess drops dead on pass leading to 3 and long (if I remember correctly...as I said, I had a skinful)
3) DG turning a 6 yard run into a 4 yard loss leading to 2 & 14 instead of 2 & 6.
4) Defence giving up a long TD run with several missed tackles.
This was the definition of execution. As the season has gone on, our receivers have got worse at helping our QB get early confidence (almost as bad as last year at Nebraska when poor Bellomy had any catchable pass dropped awfully).
Outside of those plays, we did have a couple of bad play calls (reverse after a jet sweep anyone) and our OL can't seem to block the blitz....but I had concluded this game wasn't on Al (and I am a critic)...it WAS on execution.
Was hoping that UFR would validate my drunken observations. But looks like its extended gratification (or not) for me.
Happy thanksgiving folks.
