    What a dumb call by Campbell. They had the momentum.

    He had his TE wide open. That was a gutsy game and some gutsy decisions in the 4th that almost won the day. Almost. Hell of a game though.

    Unranked on the road against top 10 team, I like the call. Purdy made a bad read

    Yes. A totally different offense playing garbage Big 12 defenses. You can't just pluck that and out it in Iowa and see it translate.

    He put the ball right in the midsection of his Receiver. Could have been caught, maybe should have been, and there was definite contact before the ball got there.

    There is no such thing as a bad read in the Big 12. Everyone is open, on every play.

    If we had anyone else's O-line, we'd be undefeated.

    Impossible. If we had Purdy during the ISU game, he would have had to beat his own team.

    The guy can scramble and pass. Major upgrade.
    How many points do you think we would score on Oklahoma in Norman?

    My comment was WE would be unbeaten with Purdy. We have a much better D than ISU.

    Oh, sorry, I don’t comment on unprovable hypotheticals. ISU is 5-4 with Purdy. Ya know, the team that was hyped to be the best ISU team ever in the preseason.

    Good play call. TE was wide open, Purdy made a bad read.
    We would not be unbeaten b/c the strength & conditioning coaches kid is starting at MLB.

    threw 5 TDs no picks on the road against #9 team in the country. Stanley would never do that.

    Iowa fans by and large are heavily biased morons. I hate our fanbase sometimes.

    That Oklahoma defense is terrible. Also, aren’t you from the same idiot fan base that claims a ‘phantom’ holding call prevented the clones from beating Iowa earlier this year? LOL!

    He's very mobile though, much of his time to throw was created by that. That's my point.

    You do realize there was a defender breathing down his neck that blocked his vision?

    Lol bad read? He read the play as best he could with a guy barrelling down on him and he made a perfect freaking throw between 2 defenders that should've been caught. Throwing back into the defender in the backfield with him would've been impossible.
    Just because Brock Huard said "so and so" was open does not mean he made a "bad read." It means a guy was open and it was too bad the pressure was there because he would've had it.

    Not really. He was coming open just as Brock was winding up to throw it. And he was in the blind spot where the defensive lineman was in the backfield with him, so let's stop this nonsense about how the TE was wide open and should've been the read. So many freakin armchair QBs thinking this is Madden
