He’s going to be average at best and they’re going to finish a game out of 1st place in the West bc of it.

Clayborn block, I think. Not the most important game ever, but just because of how fun it was. We had probably 15 people over to our apartment before a party to watch the game and it went Whamo crazy during that play.

People are forgetting that Spencer threw a dart right after that pirouette, on the money. To Nebrantska but still.

Would feel pretty confident about both Indiana and ISU if they were towards the end of the season

But unfortunately it will mostly come down to Petras as our defense will keep us in any game in the schedule

Playing two capable teams to start the year isn't exactly a Ferentz coached team recipe for success.

I'll be thrilled with 1-1.

No way we win that game in Ames unless Petras has upgraded to average. I don't even think they're that good, but Ferentz teams are usually pretty mediocre early in the year and get better as the season goes on. Iowa State is going to be fuckin hyped.

The 2020 version of Petras doesn't get us a win there.

Only hope is they both start slow as well.

In a weird way I'd feel better about the game in Ames if Iowa is coming off of a loss to Indiana.

Iowa needs to blitz the ever living shit out of ISU. However, I predict they will sit in a baby shit soft zone and rush 4.
I think the defense matches up pretty well with their personnel, maybe best in a 4/3.

We will win the first two. You have my word.

They have given up 3, 41 (38 in regulation), 3, and 17. The defense is strong on the back 7, I would be mildly surprised if they give up more than 21.

Oh, I didn't mean to imply that at all. Just saying that it's a pretty solid bet that Iowa will be in a base defense for the entire 1st quarter. There might even be a drive or two where it looks like we have no ability to stop them. But I don't think the defense will be a problem at all.

Or Iowa State pulls out the exotics early because they know they can’t score much on the Hawks and then their coach struts around and glares at Iowa’s sidelines while saying “they think they’re so fucking smart” into his headset. Then they still get dominated the rest of the game and lose in hilarious fashion. I know it sounds crazy but that could also happen.

That sounds unrealistic as fuck and something my 9 year old would write. No way that happens at the collegiate level.
