    I really want to bow this but my confidence is shaken. This has a "that's football" vibe to it.

    That tends to happen when you lose to an FCS team at home.

    Receivers not getting open and CJ is holding onto the ball too long. Bad combination.

    That game was one of the worst I have ever seen. The defense isn't good, but they are playing more than good enough to win.

    I fucking hate Greg Davis. Hate him. It takes a special kind of stupid to average about 7 yards per carry and only win by a touchdown because you got a gift turnover from your defense.

    Enough with the constant audibles. Every fucking play is Beathard goes up, almost snaps, audibles and about 5 times now they get a false start.

    I think even if Iowa had stud 5* receivers they still wouldn't be getting open because the routes suck and the other team know they are coming.

    Where the fuck are some simple slants? Where is anything over the middle? Quick hitters?

    No way. That game was actually pretty fun. This was much more like the 9-6 Iowa State game in 2012.

    Don't the refs usually give the sideline a warning before throwing that flag? That was some serious bullshit officiating. The hold on King early that they missed was hilarious.

    Honestly, will Greg Davis be the Offensive Coordinator for the remainder of Ferentz's career?

    I shudder at the thought.

    It is pretty clear that Iowa cannot drop back pass on any level. They can't block for it, the routes won't allow guys to get open and Beathard is a dumbfuck about getting rid of the ball.

    Greg Davis needs to realize right now they are a running team that should have 2 TE's on the field and play action pass. If you have to run a spread and make some quick passes. They keep trying what they are doing now they are going to get Beathard killed and lose a lot of games.

    Iowa needs to start run blocking up the field and kicking ass. They are good at that. Don't run so much stretch zone as teams are jumping it like crazy. Run up the field and do some traditional run blocking.

    No, and I honestly think this year is it for him if they have a disappointing year.

    Ferentz will always need assistant coaches to scapegoat if they end up having a disappointing season to keep the heat off himself or Brian. I would think that Greg Davis and Bobby Kennedy would be the first to be fired.

    They ran a quick slant last week on 4th if I recall, worked perfectly. Can't seem to call it on normal downs to save their lives.

    Iowa has a bunch of not very good but decent hands WR and can't figure out why in the fuck they don't throw anything going over the middle with momentum.

    I'm not sure how much to blame CJB. These receivers are awful. Vandeberg should be the very nice third receiver, not the marquee option.

    The coaches called the play for a fade on 4th down and FIVE to go with no score in the first half.

    They are simply retarded, and they appear to make CJ act retarded as well.

    Exactly. If they're not fast enough to get separation, you use plays with quick cuts or coverage drags that does it for them.

    Nope, not this staff.

    Iowa desperately need Bower and Snyder to get the fuck off the field. Taylor is pretty awful as well.

    Where the fuck is Gair? He can't be that terrible.
