Your Iowa Hawkeyes gave us one last stocking stuffer before the Holidays in the form of its Music City Bowl—a game that’s definitely still getting played, don’t worry about it—two deeps.
Well, here they are!
The only real change, is of course, the omission of Ihmir Smith-Marsette. If you’ll recall, he front flipped his way into a walking boot against Wisconsin, and wasn’t present on the two-deeps for the Michigan game that didn’t happen last week.
Typically, Kirk Ferentz has always said the two-deeps are a reflection of how the previous game ended, so since ISM ended the game hurt, I didn’t think too much of his omission then.
Now, with an extra week, ISM is still absent. Last week he told reporters he’s good to go and the boot was precautionary, but this is different.
Without knowing the details of is injury, but with knowing the details of how KF runs his enterprise, I suspect this is little more than smoke and mirrors from the ‘ol ball coach trying to skeeve Missouri’s Eliah (?) Drinkwitz.
Other than that, it appears like just about everyone is playing. Even the guys with green on the line look to be playing one last game in the Black and Gold.
Anyway, I think we get a healthy dose of a healthy ISM on the 30th. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
