With CJB and Daniels now starting, I'm cautiously optimistic. We'll find out if Kirk can work any magic on the O-Line. I'm predicting 8-4.

With that said, If we see another 25 yard horizontal pass that gets picked for a TD (NIU/Maryland)I'm buying "firegregdavis.com"

I like it, a lot of positive vibes in this thread to start.

Either PWN the fucking shit out of us with 9 wins or more or lose them all in horrifying fashion. Do it KIRK.

Let the record show that @Lime was the first negative vibe in the thread. If Iowa sucks, this is on him.

I think there is a real possibility this year's team will be that 10-2 team everybody outside of Iowa howls about because of the weak schedule.

There is also the possibility they will be a 4-8 team everybody in Iowa howls about because of the weak schedule.

2-0 and I'm back on the train, boyz. Otherwise, Bert or bust.

LB's, a consistent running game & special teams will tell the tale for this group. If any of those 3 are a glaring weakness again, it will be a long year. I think Iowa will try to run the ball a lot more than most might think.

8 or 9 wins and I'd like to see all of these "weak teams" on this "weak schedule" kick some non Hawkeye butt.

I will say this, boyz, if Ferentz makes it to Indianapolis I will forgive him for the last few years and welcome him to finish this thing out.

This is the year for redemption if it is to be had. I hope they're good enough at OL, LB and coaching football to take advantage of a golden opportunity.

They're probably not but I enjoy the halo roller coaster.

Absolutely this is a golden opportunity and Kirk knows it.

We'll see, and see if the roster is such that it matters even if he, Greg, Chris et al can somehow manage to not be dumbfucks and grasp concepts such as time, self scouting and how to constrain defenses.

An OSU/Iowa championship game would the rapiest raperoom in the history of raperooms. Urban would be using Gold Bond for a week in preparation of going in as dry as possible. That's two programs on completely different levels, coaching, athleticism, you name it. Would not be pretty.

if Iowa makes it to Indianapolis then they are better than we think now though. like Beathard is actually as good as some here think, KF skipping I-Club breakfasts is working, Daniels is a stud, GD died on the sidelines...

It'd be a good Ferentz special. Hawks lose by 4, with some questionable playcalling and clock management down the stretch.

Undoubtedly. But also please consider the schedule. My point still stands. Ugly ugly ugly.
