My outside point of view of IOWA

My outside point of view of IOWA 


Your team doesnt really have alot of explosive players. Your a typical big10  old school team. 
Your team doesnt really have any defensive players who can dominate anyone.

Good news is that  its only the first game. so you have ton of time to get better. But Iowa didnt really impress me like i thought you guys would, As a Maryland fan. reading alot of the preseason  college football Magazines they had iowa as a dark horse or 3-4 best team in the Big 10, i dont see it.

maybe 6-8 but like i said first game who knows. But cant wait to see you guys at Byrd stadium should be a awesome game. Maryland has a little team speed lol just a little.

We'll see what happens, welcome to the Big 10. I think our D- line is pretty good, they were in the backfield all day. LB does need to improve. Our corners are punishing tacklers. We consistenly improve from week to week, soooooo be ready Maryland.

Re: My outside point of view of IOWA 


Both of your observations are incorrect in my opinion. Damon Powell, Jordan Canzeri, Derrick Willies, and Tavaun Smith are all explosive players, and Willies and Smith both showed some of that yesterday.

Secondly, Carl Davis? Desmond King? The UNI O-Line had no answer for Carl, and I'm not sure they completed a pass on King the whole game.

Finally, I can't remember the last time Iowa impressed me in their first game of the year. If you watched the whole game, then you would have seen near the end that Iowa has a chance to have a fairly explosive offense,

Iowa' d-line is pretty damn good. Let's see what you think of Iowa when the teams play. As for Maryland, I don't know much about them, as I only watch major college football.

Dear Maryland:
Nebraska was 2x as talented as you, and thought they would come in and win the big ten their first year. How did that work for them? Before you get a big head thinking your speed will be killer, let me remind you that many speed teams struggle with big ten teams. Wintertime conditions bode well for power teams. Please show up informed because gloating posts before your first big ten game is just stupid, really.

Re: My outside point of view of IOWA 


I'm more concerned about having a team defense that can dominate, than a couple explosive players.  The defensive line looked quite good against UNI.  Anyone else think that David Johnson gets held to <40 yds. on the ground again this season?

Now we are the most Southern Bigten team. wow this is going to take a lot of getting used too ohlord its like a divorce where you still think your married.

It is part of a box score, UNI had 25 yards rushing on 25 carries. That averages out to 1 yard per carry.

So let me get this straight, you bring these observations to an Iowa message board without actually observing the game? Nice! Do you even know where Iowa is located on the map? Didn't think so. I bet most Iowans know where Maryland is, along with the other 49 states. Or is it 57 states - sometimes I get confused by upper management.

Re: My outside point of view of IOWA 


was the MD game on BTN??  what do you think of BTN?  just curious

U really shouldnt be trashing a team/program when you didnt even watch the game....wow.....

actually, MD is the 2nd furthest Eastern team in the conference  biggrin  so now, instead of MD being in a conference that runs North/South, you are in a conference that runs East/West

how much do you think you will miss the ACC when it comes to football? basketball?

I think Maryland and Iowa were on BTN simultaneously in regional games. Most of the Big Ten viewers that had only one of the BTN game broadcast stations saw UNI vs. Iowa.

Re: My outside point of view of IOWA 


It is fair for Brazilman to comment on what he hasn't seen. He is a fan.

Iowa appears to have game breakers, but I am not clear on whether the coaches teach conservatism 1.01 and are intentionally holding them back, or if Jake Rudock is scared to throw the ball downfield. It appears that in the 4th qtr. he was directed to throw the ball downfield, and did so with success.

Iowa cannot be as conservative offensively as it was Saturday against UNI and win the division title, or if it does win the title it will be with at least 2 or 3 losses, combined with a lot of balance in the Western Division.

Since Northwestern didn't defeat California, it is looking like Northwestern is not prepared to compete for the Western Division title. After watching some of the Minnesota game I am not so sure the Gophers are prepared to do anything more than compete for 3rd or 4th in the division.

I cannot imagine a one-dimensional team like Wisconsin winning the western division. They need to have dramatic improvement at QB like MSU experienced as 2013 progressed.

I agree, we did not look flashy. We did not run up the score. We had trouble separating ourselves from a much smaller school. If you know anything about Iowa this them is nothing new at the beginning of the season. The great thing is, Iowa has always been able to progress as the year goes on. An Iowa team that barely sneaks by a FCS school at the beginning of the year can win the Orange Bowl at the end of the year.

You were able to make an assessment of our team by watching highlights! I guess that would be like a cliff notes version of scouting. With skills like that, I am surprised Maryland hasn't added you to their scouting department.

Secondly, Carl Davis? Desmond King? The UNI O-Line had no answer for Carl, and I'm not sure they completed a pass on King the whole game.

Finally, I can't remember the last time Iowa impressed me in their first game of the year. If you watched the whole game, then you would have seen near the end that Iowa has a chance to have a fairly explosive offense,

To be fair, anyone who makes comments and opinions about a game they didn't even watch is a real idiot.

I guess you didn't see Louis Trinca-Pasat's game line.  10 tackles, 3 for loss, 2 sacks, 1 deflected pass I believe.  You know part of the reason he had those numbers?  The o-line kept trying to stop Carl Davis next to him from living in the backfield . . . but they couldn't.  In fact, both DT's took up residence back there most of the game.  I sure hope Maryland knows about them by the time we play . . . but it may not matter.

If you don't try to win, your chances of success are 0%

I caught some of the Maryland game while watching the Hawkeye one as well. If I were you Maryland id be damn ashamed and embarrassed to wear one of those god awful uniforms if I was a player for Maryland. As far as the matchup down the road it will be a smashmouth game. I have no fears about Iowa playing up to Maryland in about a month from now.

Maryland jack:

You will lose at least once before getting to the big ten. Then the sheet will begin. Congrats in advance on your 6 win season.

What's amazing to me is that so many have taken the bait from some troll who bashes Iowa after admitting he hadn't even seen Iowa play.  I'm guessing "Brazilman" is about 12 years old.

Good news is that  its only the first game. so you have ton of time to get better. But Iowa didnt really impress me like i thought you guys would, As a Maryland fan. reading alot of the preseason  college football Magazines they had iowa as a dark horse or 3-4 best team in the Big 10, i dont see it.

maybe 6-8 but like i said first game who knows. But cant wait to see you guys at Byrd stadium should be a awesome game. Maryland has a little team speed lol just a little.

I agree, we did not look flashy. We did not run up the score. We had trouble separating ourselves from a much smaller school. If you know anything about Iowa this them is nothing new at the beginning of the season. The great thing is, Iowa has always been able to progress as the year goes on. An Iowa team that barely sneaks by a FCS school at the beginning of the year can win the Orange Bowl at the end of the year.
This is KF version of running up the score.
