Arrow NCAA Football: Iowa Hawkeyes will play for a national championship

Iowa Player On Motorcycle Hit By Truck (VIDEO) Will Start Saturday - can't f*ck with that guy.


Now to my homer thread:

blindly biased? yes.

well informed on the competition? no.

favorable schedule? yes.


2010 schedule
Eastern Illinois
Iowa State
@Arizona
Ball State
Penn State
@Michigan
Wisconsin
Michigan State
@Indiana
@Northwestern
Ohio State
@Minnesota

Penn State and Ohio State @ home is a big deal, there's a few other challenges along the way but let's call it like it is, those are the money games.


Returning 14 starters including 8 from our bone crushing defense.

The defense only took two major hits with linebacker Pat Angerer, and corner Amari Spievey, they should be right on par with where we were last year and that alone is going to win us a lot of games. There's 7 starting seniors and 2 starting juniors -- this is primed to be one of those special units. We'll be one of the top defenses in the country and you can take that to the bank.

The offense took a few big blows to the offensive line but actually improved at the skill positions which were decimated by injury last year. QB Ricky Stanzi can be really frustrating at times but is a composed leader and proven winner. Hopefully he's poised for a big senior season. If Adam Robinson stays healthy he could put up huge numbers. My favorite player on the team, Marvin McNutt and his fellow wide out Derrell Johnson-Koulianos are going to have big years. Stanzi doesn't have an incredible/accurate arm for the long ball so hopefully they'll both be utilized in more of a checkdown fashion. Our tight ends are always strong and used often, and senior Allen Reisner should be no different.

Kirk Ferentz is one of the best coaches in the country and has the boys poised for a big season. I think we have a legitimate shot at 12-0 and a shot at the title game. I would be outright shocked if we lost more than 1.

Wow, Iowa gets Wisconsin at home too. Only major road game is Michigan. It is a favorable schedule but I think they'll slip up at some point.

Michigan is not a major road game. They are terrible. Northwestern is probably the toughest road game on that schedule.

I was referring more about the venue than the team.

In years past when we've had really good teams we've slipped up against Iowa State (KNOCK ON WOOD). That year we had Brad Banks it cost us a BCS title shot.

Ferentz runs a pretty tight ship, I doubt we'll "slip" against anyone. If we lose it will be to one of the top schools. If the O line replacements are worth a shit, we'll be a juggernaut.

It wouldn't surprise me ONE bit to see Iowa in the Nat'l Championship, but like someone else mentioned, I bet they slip up one game.

Like Skip Bayless says...."It's not the BEST teams, but the top teams who have the easiest way to an undefeated season" that has the best chance at being champs.

I just said that based on some underwhelming performances from last season.

Examples:

Win by 1 against N. Iowa at home
Win by 3 against Arkansas St. at home
2 nailbiters against underwehlming Michigan and MSU teams

Granted, they also beat G-Tech, PSU, and narrowly OSU on the road but they were very up and down. I need to see consistency from them before I really become a believer.

Arrow Re: NCAA Football: Iowa Hawkeyes will play for a national championship

obviously avoiding OSU all together would be ideal but our non conference schedule is "easy" and our big ten schedule is about as friendly as it could possibly be. It's never easy in the grind-ass big ten and we could certainly end up well over our heads in a title game but I think the path has been laid perfectly and the ducks are in a row.
