It is unreal, isn't it? On one hand, IA should be insulted and feel extra vigor to stomp us. On the other hand, I'm hoping this team just can't take one more tablespoon of bitter medicine and pulls the win out. GBR!!!Unreal a 3-8 team with back up qb having first start is favored today over 17th ranked 9-2 team. Most underrated 3-8 team in cfb history vs most overrated 9-2 team in cfb history. Iowa must be one lucky ass team. Hope their luck has run out
We have almost zero metric to judge Smothers except playing 1/2 a quarter and observations from so called experts from practice. I have no idea what to expect today except to say it's darn tough way to get your first start in the BIG imo. Just going to sit back and savor our last game this season and wonder about what MIGHT have been. GBR and Go Smothers and the entire team.I have said several times on here... and I really want to drive the point home. This offense can work if we become 65/35 run and use the QB run game. For all the good Adrian is... when he was told that if he plays though injuries (especially the jaw) that he was not going to be put in positions to take hits... it REALLY hamstrung our offense.
If we win today... it is not going to be because Logan is a better QB than Adrian (I don't believe he is)... it is because one of the most dynamic aspects to this offense is the QB run game.. and the defense having to account for it. Be it speed option, zone read, QB power etc. I suspect that Logan is going to show what a gifted athlete he is... Folks are going to be blow away by his speed (this according to my friend who coaches HS ball in Huntsville, AL)...it is "T-Magic esque" (sub 11 second 100 meter)... If we can pop a few runs early for 10-15 yard gains... look for Allen down the seam in PA on a long TD today.
I still wonder why Scott didn't play Smothers more! Love Scott, but find it irresponsinle.Unreal a 3-8 team with back up qb having first start is favored today over 17th ranked 9-2 team.
