Who amongst us has seen an Iowa team so punish an opponent (what, six defensive Spartans leave with a limp) -- and lose?
Who amongst us has seen an Iowa team so dominate the LOS while shutting down the #2 runner in the country -- and lose?
Gee whiz, is this another game without a new play we didn't run in 2001?
Gee whiz, who amongst us has seen us open a drive with a play action bootleg? (Well, all of us, as has the MSU DC.)
Iowa has some real stud ballplayers like I have never seen and I'm really sorry they have now had to carry their nimrod coaches to three losses in three games.
But please, no more postings about how "We're better than they are" -- like last week, and that includes the spanking storming man. Yeah, we dominated them physically and we are better at every position except wide-out. But we *lost* another one. Because football requires design, and design is handled by the coaches. And if your ballplayers are dropping the ball for no reason it's because they are seriously twisted in the head -- and that's on the coaches.
After we lost to Pitt I wrote that Shonn was a 2nd round pick. Wrong. He's a 1st round pick. Olsen and Bulaga are locks in the top three rounds, Edds needs to get with a program that doesn't put 250 lb men in man coverage on slots 40 yards downfield (like, the Bears?), and Sash is the real deal. This guy Leppard? Where the fuck did he come from? Wow. We tackled really well this day. Everything went right, except the sideline decisionmaking, didn't it? Didn't it?
