Hoosier Daddy?

The last undefeated team in the Big Ten is... Indiana?!?! The Hoosiers went on the road and dominated Wisconsin en route to a 31-17 win.

Wegrets as QBs Wheeled Out For Season

Jets QB Erik Wegert severely ruptured his PCL on TNF, and Titans QB Thomas Wheeler tore his rotator cuff Sunday, significantly hurting the hopes of both teams for 2023.

Horned Frogs SteAMRALled

#6 Oklahoma State took it to TCU, going up 28-7 at halftime and winning 38-14. RB Amral Brown came up huge with 142 rushing yards and 2 TD.

100-yard Curse Blackballed

The Colts hadn't had a 100-yard rushing game since Tony Peaks posted 150 and 2 TD in Week 17 of 2018. 2 games of JB Blacknall later, a 5-year drought is broken.

Catch Or No Catch?

Bengals WR Adrian Jankowski was furious that this catch on MNF didn't count, and it led to a tantrum and fine. Was it a catch? Depends on the perspective.

WEEK 1 RESULT - IOWA CELEBRATES VICTORY IN SEASON OPENER VS WESTERN KENTUCKY 31-21.

 

Offensive takeaways from Week 1 win vs Western Kentucky - We are very pleased with how our players competed on both sides of the ball and we are happy to get the win vs a very good Western Kentucky team.  The offensive line stepped up and gave our skill players a chance to make plays. QB Ryan Corbin made good decisions and took care of the ball well in his first start and we are excited to see him improve as the season progresses.  

 

Defensive takeaways - We focused on stopping their running attack and we did an excellent job keeping their backs in check.  We got good pressure on their QB with 3 sacks and were able to come up with a turnover. We were really impressed with freshman Ayden Brito and how he has taken over his OLB position.  

 

Focus heading into week 2 vs Iowa State - Of course the Cy-Hawk game is a big game for us and for coach @Minnowsotan and the Cyclones.  Iowa State looked impressive in week 1 and they will certainly be ready for us in this week. They present a very similar challenge as Western Kentucky as they have a balanced offense with an excellent running back and a talented quarterback which makes it difficult to gameplan against them.  We need everyone on our defense to step up again this week and hope we can make enough stops to slow them down. Their defense has a lot of playmakers which means we will need Corbin and our offense to execute and avoid turnovers if we expect to have a chance to win.  

 

We know it’s going to be a hard fought game and we hope we will be taking the Cy-Hawk trophy back to Iowa City.

Did you see anything in Iowa State's game tape to exploit this week?

Yes, I personally saw @wrigleyfan up in a tree with binoculars at our practice facility 2 days ago. I might send a notice to the NCAA by pigon mail.

We did attend the Bill Belichick class on scouting your opponents.  But I'm too old to be climbing trees anymore....that's what the grad assistants are for :)

On offense we may have a slight advantage on the edges with our receivers and with our offensive line if they can perform at the same level as we did in week 1.

 

On defense I'm not sure there is anything to exploit but we will need to slow down the running game and try to make them more one dimensional.
