Because presumptions are just presumptions. I never thought Iowa would play in the Outback Bowl last season until they did. Bowls do what they want, sense be damned. 

Comment 22 Nov 2017

Attendance is down across the nation but still, last week's attendance wasn't good. 

With the bonkers money everyone in the Big Ten is getting from the network, attendance doesn't really matter any longer.

Comment 21 Nov 2017

Just went back and looked at wide-receiver coach Kelton Copeland's bio. He was at NIU in 2013. Does Ferentz just hire everyone that humiliates him?

Comment 20 Nov 2017

Then again, part of being a head coach is being able to identify talented coordinators. Bielema has a pretty impressive coaching tree for only being a head coach for 10 years. 

Kirk Ferentz has been a head coach for 20 years and his coaching tree consists of Joe Philbin and...Bret Bielema.

The consensus used to be that Bielema is a tool but at least he wins football games. 

Now, the second thing is no longer true. I'm starting to think Bielema's success at Wisconsin had a lot more to do with Matt Canada, Dave Doeren and Chris Ash than it did Bielema himself.

"Iowa would likely need to lose in both the first and second rounds. At that point, the Hawkeyes would be fighting for a whopping seventh place finish, and the fanbase would be on the verge of collective self-immolation."

Well, we're off to a good start.

Comment 18 Nov 2017

No, you're right. Aside from 2-3 times a season, Iowa football is brutal to watch. Has been since 2009-2010. And it doesn't look like things are going to change anytime soon.
