florida did better than i thought they would.
i was surprised how much of a defensive battle OU vs TX was. was a good game.
baylor wins yet another close game.
last i saw Minn beat Neb pretty handily.
i didnt watch the game, as i thought it wouldnt be close, but it looked like georgia was its own worse enemy. congrats to SC though, beating top 5 teams always memorable.
MSU vs Wis was an ouch. i didnt think it would be that lopsided. Wis is easily the best team in the west, and OSU looks like the best in the east.
Iowa is in for a long season. the offensive line is playing no where near its potential. how many times can a defensive lineman just run up the middle before you try and do something to stop it. at least we had one of the top plays of the year at the end of the game. Was a close game before Iowa became its own worst enemy. tbh, i dont remember the last time Iowa had a running back break for a long run(40+ yards) for a td. We use to do it a lot, but in the last 5-10 years we haven't had a back or line capable of doing it on a consistent basis. It doesn't help Iowa doesn't have a deep threat, so everyone can just play in or near the box. We don't have our 2 NFL TEs as a safety blanket. On the bright side, i feel good about the future TEs, our freshman RB(goodman i think), and our backup QB which i assume will start next year.
on a side note for the Iowa game(mainly second half), the refs made some weird calls that hurt both teams. there was a touchdown that was reversed, even though at worst the call should of stood as is. there was a targeting that met both criteria to be confirmed but then they reviewed and reversed that. there were a lot of other missed calls or they called penalties on super light stuff that didnt need it. Iowa didn't lose because of the refs and i wouldnt say the games outcome would of changed because of the refs.(penn state got the worst of it imo) I just hate when refs are all over the place on what they do and dont call. the 2 calls they reversed shouldn't have been.
