This is true. What’s also true is their defense is absolutely horrible.
Yeah we should put up 40+ pretty comfortably. I don't think it'll ultimately be that close I could just see them putting together a few annoying drives and causing a brief freakout
I'm not sure there is an FBS team in the country I'm willing to say Iowa would comfortably put 40+ on. Especially with the OL injuries.

I hope the offense gets to that point eventually, but the run game needs to become more dominant or Stanley needs to get his accuracy dialed in for me to feel comfortable that 40+ is a given.
Hmm

I was also wrong but let's focus on you being wrong instead

Goodson is solid but LOL at the announcers thinking he should be a five star

Wait.

Is this where Iowa fans tweet about how great Iowa is after beating a cupcake and racking up yardage?

Toren Young reminded me of someone on that long run....

Lol, sure. I said I wouldn't be shocked if they gotto 40+.

They put up the all time record for offensive yards in a game under KF and still only managed 48 points. That was the underlying argument I was trying to make - they don't make scoring points easy.

That Toren Young run was a good example. That was easily a TD for Goodson or pretty much any starting Big Ten RB. Goodson needs more carries because that play needs to be a TD against the Michigan's and Penn State's of the world.

Iowa needs all their long run plays to go to Goodson and all their short run plays to go to Young. Sargent can have the medium run plays.

I missed the game today so I didn't get to hear the context behind this stat. It doesn't seem right at all.

First time in the Ferentz era that Iowa had three 90-yard rushers in the same game.

Iowa has outscored opponents by 100 points through four games this season, just the fifth time in the Fry/Ferentz era (since 1979) that Iowa is +100 points through four games.

Every time Iowa has been undefeated entering October under Ferentz they have reached a NY6/Alamo* Bowl (2001, 2009, 2015).

I posted this in the DirecTV thread but it may be more relevant here:

After some research I found out DirecTV has something called a Local Channel Connector for free in markets that have channel disputes. Supposedly one can take an OTA antenna plug it into the LCC then the DirecTV receiver and get the local OTA channels and sub channels with the ability to record or watch to any TV.

I called and said I needed one sent to keep my service because I lost Fox out of Cedar Rapids and they are sending me one supposedly yet this week.

I called a couple weeks ago trying to get a few dollars off my bill and no one ever mentioned an LCC. I mentioned it today and after verifying the KFXA dispute they agreed to send it at no charge.

Edit to add I think they are sending an indoor antenna as well but I already have one, I just cant record under my current set up or watch on any other TV.

You can watch the game on your computer, as well. Reddit has moved it streams to sportsurge.net. Lots of options, and it works great.

I've called on that like three times and every call I was transferred at least twice. They all thought they would be able to send it to me but then realized they couldn't for whatever bullshit reason. One said they would've been able to send it a month or so ago when they still had the Nexstar dispute but now that it was smaller distributors they couldn't.

Went to Best Buy today and got some converter for $29 because my main year-old 65" tv doesn't have an antenna jack. Can connect that to an external hard drive or USB for recording purposes if needed.

I will be a bit skeptical until it arrives. The guy gave me an order number which I wrote down but I can still see a scenario where it gets pulled.

I will keep everyone updated.

True freshman walk-on OT Nick DeJong played against MTSU. The staff must be pretty high on him.
