That being said. No team has done so little with so much for so long in recorded history. Maybe next year the media will get it right and not rank Iowa so highly. Prove that you can beat the teams your suppose to beat and maybe the rankings will be justified.
I think they could have been better than they played. They seemed to play to the level of the teams the were playing or the level they thought those teams were. Look at the MSU game. I wish they played like that all year. But I agree, they should not have been ranked. I'll disclaim this with the fact that I grew up in Iowa...
It would be nice to see Iowa fans actually admit that their program is not on par with the likes of SEC teams, Ohio State, etc. You know, teams that actually do win their conferences outright several times in a decade.
Iowa needs a new offensive coordinator. The defense has been pretty outstanding the past few years. They most certainly were over ranked. The thing about how they get ranked is that the fans travel for that team better than any other team in college sports. Its all about the money. DJK is stupid for even entertaining the thought about doing what he did. He was a projected 1st round pick in the draft. He most likely wont be in the NFL now even after he gets out of prison. Maybe he will share a cell with Pierre Paul or whatever his name was that played basketball for the Hawks or get transferred to hang out with Maurice Clarrett.
They have no control over their players. Now they admit that the drug testing progam has issues. Really? Just now they are finding that out? Guess if you perform on the field who cares what you do in your free time.
