    They 7-0 Iowa Hawkeyes should be well rested and ranked in the Top 15. Win this game to go 8-0 and very near the Top 10.

    Throw in an Illinois win next week and the remaining 5 games could be one of the most enjoyable stretches of Iowa football to watch in my life. To be firmly in the driver's seat midway through the conference slate would be sublime.

    Go Illini!

    With a shitty Maryland team on deck, they should hopefully be able to ease the injured guys back in.

    Iowa should move to #14 or #13 if things hold up tonight. Should move up over Oklahoma State, Ole' Miss, Michigan and possibly Texas A&M.

    Not a huge chance of moving up in the bye week as the 4 or 5 teams ahead of them all are at home against unranked teams.

    The bye week could also be great because there is a decent shot Iowa could go into the Maryland game knowing they would have to lose 3 games to not make it to the Big Ten Championship Game.

    Illinois is coming off a bye and gets Wisconsin at home. I like that match up for Illinois as they are tough on defense and have a QB and system that is going to be pretty tough for Wisconsin to cover. They get rid of the ball quickly and accurately on offense and on defense they can get to Stave and rattle him.

    Northwestern gets to play a shitty pass and run defense at Nebraska and they can win on the road there.

    If those 2 games happen, Iowa needs to go 3-2 to go to Indianapolis.

    it's a pretty down week for the B10 with Ohio State, Michigan State, and Northwestern (plus Indiana) all on bye games. not even that great nationally.

    Michigan @ Minnesota is set for 7 PM on ABC/ESPN/ESPN2.

    other games:
    Illinois @ Penn St
    Nebraska @ Purdue
    Rutgers @ Wisconsin

    nationally OK State/Texas Tech and Clemson/NC State will probably grab 2:30 slots. Auburn/Ole Miss seems like a night game. Notre Dame/Temple is actually a biggish game (ND is 6-1 and will be ranked around #10, if Temple beats ECU they will be 7-0 and ranked around #25), guessing ESPN puts that on ESPN2 at night?

    With a weak B10 slate and Iowa being ranked in the top 15 I am guessing this might get a 2:30 slot on ESPN or ABC/ESPN2.

    Illinois is decent. They won't beat Wisconsin. But it won't matter this year.

    Looking further into it, Iowa has killed defenses that are ten times better than MD. This game should be over at half. That said:

    Iowa 37
    MD 21

    The way to beat Iowa is by throwing the ball as Illinois showed. You can't run the ball. Maryland has one of the worst passing offenses in the country. This game is going to be ugly.

    It might be time to challenge Koehn in practice. I know kickers are notorious for being head cases but he's now missed 3 XP's and 2 chip shot FG's. A little "open" competition to light a fire under his ass.

    Someone is going to have to get lucky with big plays and turnovers and jump out in front of Iowa and hope that Greg Davis abandons the run. Iowa can't control time of possession and the other team dink and dunks like Illinois did.

    Maryland has a mobile QB, but he sucks at throwing. Minnesota is awful at that. Purdue not much better. Indiana and Nebraska are the only teams really set up for it.

    He is smart enough to know they aren't ever going to replace him, so not sure that works.

    When and if Iowa loses it will be at the hands of a QB having a career day with pass completions/accuracy.

    It seems like this is more of a basketball thing.

    Hasn't hit more than 2 3 pointers in a game in 3.5 years of college. Goes 8 of 9.

    If they keep winning, I don't think you will see many 11am starts the rest of the way. If they are undefeated going to Nebraska, that could be 2:30pm as well.

    Maryland ranks 108th in the nation in total offense currently, and 100th in the nation in rush defense. Bowling Green put up 692 yards on their defense.

    We're taking these fuckers to pound town. Hopefully CJB is on the bench by the start of the 2nd half.
