    There was some rumor an ISUx poster was lamenting at least #2 didn't get kicked out for targeting his own teammate.

    ISU’s two TDs were the result of big plays exploiting backup, inexperienced DBs. For the most part they were not in position to score. Hokks needed a couple of those FGs to be TDs.

    Give credit to Campbell, though. The guy was willing to attack the DBs and he called those big plays when the teams were in a bit of a lull.

    I said during the week we would need to turn them over two or three times.

    We got two. At critical times. It was just enough.

    Holly smokes it’s amazing. The conspiracy theories about the holding call is to die for. Even read where NCAA doesn’t want ISU playing for a National title so they had the refs cost ISU the game!!! This gets better and better

    Someone needs to go over to that site of theirs and remind that their QB is no longer undefeated at Jack Trice Stadium

    Just the 1st quarter from the 20 min condensed game on YouTube.Double teamed.
    For the sake of argument:
    They neutralize one of the best DE in the country. Iowa has 4 DBs that didn’t play. ISU claims to have the Heisman trophy winner this year in Purdy. Campbell is one of the “best” coaches in the country. At home. Yet they still get beat.

    True but Campbell is now 0-5 against the Hawks. And Nate is 3-0 against the clones.!!!

    He was the read man on the option a lot, so he wasn't blocked at all on those plays, which is a great way to take him out of the run game. I also know he was double-teamed on ISU's last drive on the holding/PI play and he got held as well. To me, it seemed like they doubled or at least chipped him a lot throughout the game.

    Their team is literally named after a type of storm. The irony.

    As the option read man, I think AJ bit down on the mesh handoff every single time. I was shocked to see that. Brock pulled it and kept it himself, with pretty good success.

    LMAO!!! Those darn cyclones can be dangerous over water and in the air. Unfortunately for the clown clan not so much on land. Hawkeyes say “land ho mates!!!” Welcome to HawkeyeLAND!!!

    It is very possible that this is what Iowa wanted to happen, that AJ's assignment was to hit the RB, that way forcing Brock to run the ball and letting our LB then get shots on him.

    And they missed another one on the man blocking Eppy.

    If that holding call was "phantom", then that intentional grounding call belonged at the opera. It was a bullshit call at a time when giving the ball back to ISU may have been the game and Stanley and ISM had to make a huge play to overcome it.

    That third down connection will probably end up being one of our five biggest plays of the season.

    Noticed that a number of times where he followed the RB and Purdy kept it. Can't believe he was not assigned to maintain there until sure Purdy handed it off.

    Maybe so, but I've never heard of a defense in which this is the assignment. To the best of my knowledge, that would be a new idea. DE's job is to contain ("C" gap, if you will). From the QB's perspective, if the DE bites down on the hand off, he keeps it himself off the edge every single time (because there's no one there...). This read has been a staple of football at all levels for the past 15 years, truly the modern version of the triple option (out of the shotgun).

    According to gap assignments, I would wager AJ is not supposed to bite down on those hand offs.

    Maybe I misstated, but I believe AJ was to keep contain on Purdy. And I say that cause AJ did something similar against Nebraska last year and Parker met him at the offensive end of the sideline and escorted him all the way back to the defensive side of the bench and PP read AJ a book about F F FF FF FFF FFFF GD F F GD contain him!

    What's going on over at Cry-Fan you ask? The same ol' same ol' whether it's FB season or BB. "The refs, the refs, the refs..."

    Also, "Iowa has the most arrogant fan-base in college sports. It's a well known fact!" Iowa just beat your asses for the 5th straight time. It ain't arrogance. It's truth. We're better than you. Deal with it.

    So now the cry clones are bagging on Randy Peterson. Seems like asking Matt Campbell about how he is going to fix the offensive line is just over the top and deserves firing. LOL, Peterson is the biggest hack journalist/apologist in the country and that STILL isn't good enough for Clown fans.
