Did Brents play a snap in the game? The backup corners were Johnson and Roberts at the end. Didn’t see much of Moss either.

Hawkeyegamefilm on twitter said Iowa went away from the cash after Miami’s long 3rd down conversion to the 1 bc Johnson bit on the play action. He’s also concerned about Merriweather.

OJ absolutely flipped the fuck out on DJ after that play

It looks like there were 3 total true freshmen that played, correct?

I didn't realize that Justin Britt played and was in on a rushing TD. They must really like him to be playing him, they only do that with future high round draft pick types.

We talked a lot about him in the stands last night

It was really obvious just from watching his body language that he was focused and expecting to contribute.

Has a chance to be a great one

I would hope they don't junk cash permanently because of one bad play.

Brents was hurt for basically the entire offseason, I think.
I highly doubt they do. Likely a teaching opportunity.

Has it come out who this dude is yet? If not, it is the best kept secret in the history of the internet.

Mcl sprain- 2-4 weeks is my guess
Probably a good guess. They wouldn’t let him anywhere near a bike if they suspected any knee instability or mechanical symptoms. He’ll just need a week of rest and see how his symptoms are going into ISU week.

Hankins sure looked out of position multiple times. He probably concerns me the most in the secondary

Can anyone remember a true freshman RB getting scripted into a season opener the way they did Goodson last night? Thought it was especially notable because his first series was right after Miami scored the TD to make it a 10 point game.

I really like Sargent as a #2/#3 RB, but as we saw on that screen, he doesn't have home run hitting speed. I wonder if the coaches think Goodson has that next gear the offense currently lacks at RB between Sargent/Young.
What Sargent lacks in straight line speed he makes up for with literally every other aspect of the game. He does everything else well. If he also ran a 4.5 forty, he wouldn’t be at Iowa.

Brents was out with an injury. Don’t think he suited up. Same as Banwart.

That’s what I saw. Goodson, LaPorta and Britt.

i like Mehki Sargent. There is plenty to be said for a 'fall forward for five' guy.

Yesterday was only the fourth Iowa game since 2003 where three different WR caught a TD pas and the first since the 2017 Iowa State game.

Friends of the LaPorta family say directly behind me. Their excitement when he ran on the field in the 2nd half was exceptional.

I'm sure with the bye following ISU they'll rest him during the ISU game unless he's way ahead of schedule.

Had a crew of Beyer’s friends/fam behind me react similarly on his great catch.

Similarly, I talked to martins grandpa in the concession line a few minutes before his TD. I really, really hope he made it back to his seat in time.

The pride of the player families is one of the best things about being at the games and tailgates in person. Well, and the beer.

Hopefully, he'll single handedly win a game with a really smart, heady play at some point.

I’ve been to many Iowa games over the years and have never sat next to a player’s family. It sounds fucking amazing!

Not many complaints other than cell service in the stadium is a fucking joke.

Can't even send a text message inside the stadium.

I understand how many people are there and I don't really need to use my phone inside.

The Hawkeye lights app is a piece of shit because you can’t get reliable service to make it work. Fucking thing sucks

Mine was garbage in and out.

They want you to download that app. It's hard to download the app when you can't even send a text message -- alone download anything inside and out of the stadium.

Not getting texts during the game is great. When it’s over and you hit a good service spot you get a boatload of hot take texts from the first half.
