Oh no!

SOMETIMES, YOUR HEART IS NOT IN IT. But we have to carry on. Let's get recap-y. Blah, blah, blah. Iowa State rallies for a last second field goal. Iowa loses. Ferentz talks about the loss, his 9th all-time to Iowa State.

THEY EARNED IT.

AFTER THREE WEEKS, WE CAN TALK ABOUT STATS. Iowa returned over 90% of its offensive production from last season. After three games in 2014, the offense has been atrocious. How bad? Let's look at the current NCAA stats:

  • 96th in offensive efficiency
  • 70th in total offense
  • 84th in the nation in rushing offense
  • 92nd in yards per game
  • 118th in red zone scoring %
  • Also, Iowa ranks 58th in the Sagarin rankings with a SOS of 129

NO USE WORRYING ABOUT POLLS AND STUFF. We can look at the BTN's power poll. Iowa is 10th, below Rutgers. ESPN has Iowa #9 in the league.

OH HEY, THAT TARGETING CALL. Jordan Lomax's penalty and ejection means he'll have to sit the first half against Pitt next Saturday. Neat.

TOUGH NEWS FOR ADRIAN CLAYBORN.
