I got to watch that Iowa game last week against Arkansas State as well as their game against Northern Iowa (which they won 17-16). While their defensive front seven appears capable of stopping the run completely, like ZERO rushing yards against, they look like they can be passed on, particularly with 5-15 yd routes rather than going for the long bombs (because Forcier won't have a ton of time, their d-line is in fast). When Iowa got hit up for a bunch of little dink and dunk passes they ditch a linebacker and go to nickel and dime for coverage and don't seem THAT great at it. Makes me wonder.
Further, their offense isn't that great. Other than smacking around a bad Iowa State team they haven't put up more than three TD's against anyone.
Can't help but wonder if Iowa is ready to be upset if we can find a way to get Forcier some time to throw.
