A week ago, the possibility of Fitzgerald's Sith mind tricks caused you the most fear, which probably explains why he spent so much time on the field casting spells last Saturday. Or it's because officials have forgotten you can penalize coaches for that. Anyway. So that won and shit happened and yada yada yada. Let's just move on to this week.
There are always plenty of real things to fear about an upcoming opponent and with Ohio State that list basically quadruples, since you have one of the Big Ten's best coaches leading the most talented team in the conference on the road (where they typically play incredibly well) in November (where, again, they typically play incredibly well) in a big game (where, yet again, they typically play incredibly well -- so long as they aren't playing an SEC team). And on the other side you have an Iowa team coming off yet another gut-wrenching loss to Northwestern. So that's not so good. But fuck all that. Tell us what really scares you now.
What scares you the most heading into the Iowa-Ohio State game this weekend?
