I tried to blame it on the pint of Rumple Minze I needed to maintain a required viscosity level to support life in the stands at Iowa, but I still cannot get my head around a few things:
1) How damn hard is it to field a punt? I am to the point that I don't even expect returns, don't even count on them. Just simply field the ball. I watched random Iowa guys field punts aaaannnndddd run.
2) What does it take to find a safety that can cover? Over the last ten years we have had more than our fair shares of woes with pass coverage over the middle so it did not start with RR. Yet, 3* Sash and 0* Greenwood at Iowa seem to have this thing figured out.
For a program of our stature, I am simply dumbfounded by this.
