I'm sure you've all heard the "coach-speak" regarding the 24-hour rule: enjoy (or in our case, sulk) for 24 hours and then start preparing for the next opponent. Nothing can change what happened yeterday, we can only control what happens next.
Next is a good (not great) Iowa team.
4-1 on the season with their only loss being on the road at Arizona (who lost last night to Orgeon State.)
- 1271 pass yds/861 rush yards
- 46.7% 3rd down conversion
They are know, of course, for their defense which is currently ranked at or near the top in points and yards yielded.
I was as nervous for the State game as I was when I was playing. I can only imagine how the players felt. You find out a lot about yourself after a loss like yesterday. I'm quite confident the team gets focused, settles down, works their asses off, and comes into the game this Saturday with a nice big chip on their shoulder.
