Alright. We lost. We came out, played poorly, and lost. Happens all the time. At least once a season to almost every team. Alabama lost too, and look at all the talent they have. Oh boo hoo. The season is NOT over. We knew we weren't going to go undefeated. Deal, alright. Deal. We have the most sad sack, sorry excuse fans in the nation right now, and there's no call for it. WE ARE STILL SMACK DAB IN THE MIDDLE OF A HUGE REBUILDING EFFORT! Losses will happen. So will great victories. What is important is the next game.
So, Iowa, and Mr. Pick Six Stanzi. How do we win this one? They seem to have an excellent RB, but he's a freshman, and I don't think he's as good as State's RB's, who were unquestionably excellent.
Defensively, can we play a little stronger up front and just get our best athletes into space into the backfield for coverage? Do we have any hope to get penetration and hurry Stanzi into some bad decisions?
Offensively, can the line handle Iowa's D-line? Do we have anyone that can beat Adrian Claiborne?
