Iowa has lost 3 games first one to N. Ill.
Appreciate Curtis Grant's efforts in playing with a heavy heart.
Off-seasoning in moderation
For as much as folks were up in arms about our D, they did a pretty solid job after the half (except the terrible 75-yard TD to that lighting quick tight end).
232 total yards in the first half to 143 in the second. Take away the above mentioned play and you got 68 total yards. Our offense is as much to credit for the D's better play. Because of their ability to keep the ball and move methodically down the field, Iowa was held to two possessions in each the 3rd and 4th quarter (flipped from the 1st half where Buckeyes had only 4 possessions).
Iowa's 4 possessions in the second half looked like this:
I agree, I thought the defense did much better in the 2nd half. I do agree that Iowa threw us some curve balls with that two and three tight end set. You really get a game plan going, and suddenly they pull out the dink and dunk offense.
The linebackers got exposed in pass coverage, and loosing Roby to a BS call cost us.
We better get our shit together next week, we got PSU and them off a bye week. That game might be a shoot out.
Tip of the hat to Curtis grant. Hope he is able to find some peace
