Predictable playcall for the first drive. Good thing Hock is awesome

Okay, that was surprisingly good

Blitzes are coming untouched but not under control.

One of those will land eventually. I don’t think we will overpursue past the second quarter on those blitzes

The ball control offense isn’t a bad idea to counter Nebraska’s faster paced offense. Would love to see one of those passes on target, but as long as we keep moving the ball, s’all good.

Agreed. It's not like they're stopping the run up front and we need to loosen up the defense.

I’m digging the crossing routes

Come on defense, you have got to play better than this!

This is going to be a fucking shootout if our defense doesn't settle down and take care of business.

Time to get some more, offense!

Holding them to a FG feels like a win

I mean, there’s just a bit of overpursuit. I’m hoping this is just nerves and it’ll fade in the second half

Epenesa lost contain and made a poor tackle attempt on A-Mart.

Parker Hesse came over from the weak-side, making the tackle needed to force UNL to kick a field goal.

Are there any Hawkeye fans still complaining about Hesse starting over AJ?

CAUTION: May go on prolonged rants about Gary Barta and Bruce Harreld without warning.

AP

That was Nelson on the contain

Eppy still missed the tackle.  Still has work to do in the run game.

CAUTION: May go on prolonged rants about Gary Barta and Bruce Harreld without warning.

So we’ve been establishing the run game and quite well and we decide to abandon it?

I'll bet it surprised Nebraska's defense at least!

Didn't run the football one time on that series which resulted in a 3 and out. I hope the defense has settled down by now.

Okay, let’s go back to that balanced offense. Do not overcompensate with three straight zone runs, please.

Okay, Brian. Run the ball please!

I don't get how playing a game on black Friday at 11 AM gets you anymore eyes than playing on Saturday at 11 AM.

Plus my office doesn't close on black Friday.

AP
Dip-shit's picture

It's unfortunate you have to work Black Friday; however, most people don't.

Hawk Guy's picture

I’d imagine those that work in retail have to work Black Friday

Waiting for the next time Michigan comes to visit

AP
Dip-shit's picture

True, but he said something about working in an office. Not sure of the percentages, but I'm guessing retail doesn't make up more than 50 percent of the workforce. I could be wrong.

55-24 #Woodshed

AP
Tmess89's picture

Yep I know I'm not in the majority. Not retail. But 11 AM still seems like not much different than Saturday at 11. If it was an afternoon start then having it on Black Friday makes more sense to me. It just feels like a midweek MACtion attempt at getting on a non cable network.

Playing on Black Friday is a Nebraska tradition.

So was losing four games in a season. They now choose to double that tradition

Now throw one to Fant so he can run through that guy

Waiting for the next time Michigan comes to visit

AP

We need to run a counter or some type of misdirection as their d-line is slanting to stop the stetch play.

55-24 #Woodshed

Like that?

Couldn’t tell if that was overthrown intentionally. Smith did not have space

I was thinking the same thing.

Come on Stanley. Make an accurate throw and we've got this game!

Nope, looks like we may be down to one RB.

Why not run it on 3rd down if you're going for it on 4th anyway arghasdgasgahsfgasdfasdfh come on

Amazing what happens when you allow a guy to get some rhythm in the run game...

I'll take 21 to 10 going into the half.

I was hoping 45 seconds would keep them from scoring. Looking like I may be wrong.

Never underestimate Iowa’s ability to keep games close against inferior opponents

A pick 6 would certainly be nice here!

That's my favorite defensive play! I thought it was a good play call and even better execution when we ran it last year against tOSU.

AP

Okay Hawks, make them pay here if they try anything fishy!

Who is next in line at RB if Young can't play in the 2nd half?

55-24

Henry Gail who I believe is taking a redshirt?

55-24 #Woodshed

AP
Tmess89's picture

Great so nobody with any game experience. That new redshirt rule will be helpful today then.

55-24

Hopefully Young is okay and Sargent is ready to carry the load if he isn't. If not, we may see Gail.

Simply cannot make that type of a mistake in that situation. He cost his team 3 points with that mistake.

Hopefully we play better defense during the second half.

Does Matt Leinart spend every TV appearance hoping people don't remember his pro career?

The "QB" in his Twitter handle is a real gem.

You mean the guy that pushed Reggie Bush into the end zone for a game winning touchdown? Huh. Didn't know he was a pro.
