____________________________________________________________________

By Iowa standards, we witnessed a veritable explosion of offense against the Wildcats on Saturday. Almost 400 yards, 24 first downs(!), and zero turnovers. Is this Hawkeye performance an abberation or a breakthough? I'm skeptical but hopeful all the same.

9-1 was the top score this week shared by KuwaitHawk, HawkDoggy, and Hawkeye_4_Life.
The Tie-Breaker (TB = 159) would again decide the matter. Congratulations to Hawkeye_4_Life (TB174) who takes the top spot ahead of Runner-up HawkDoggy (TB192) and KuwaitHawk (TB202).

*perfect score (10-0)

Three game losing streak, utter futility on offense, hostile media scrutiny, an exasperated fan base. It feels like the bottom is falling out on the Ferentz Coaching Trust at Iowa. Seems like Iowa City will be the stage this weekend for a mini soap opera wound up in a mid-season football game. Let's get it on...........

____________________________________________________________________

By Iowa standards, we witnessed a veritable explosion of offense against the Wildcats on Saturday. Almost 400 yards, 24 first downs(!), and zero turnovers. Is this Hawkeye performance an abberation or a breakthough? I'm skeptical but hopeful all the same.

9-1 was the top score this week shared by KuwaitHawk, HawkDoggy, and Hawkeye_4_Life.
The Tie-Breaker (TB = 159) would again decide the matter. Congratulations to Hawkeye_4_Life (TB174) who takes the top spot ahead of Runner-up HawkDoggy (TB192) and KuwaitHawk (TB202).
