We all know what's really scaring us this week -- Sparty's a good team, how will Iowa's special teams shit all overthemselves next, how will poor clock management kill Iowa this week, can the Iowa linebackers cover well or tackle well or do anything well, etc. -- but whatever. That stuff is what it is and no amount of fretting and brow-furrowing is going to make Ferentz know how to use timeouts at the end of games or teach Iowa to be on the alert for a goddamn fake punt. The good news is that there's plenty of other shit to obsess about, too.
