The Eyes have it 

In case you were thinking otherwise, this evening I will be glued to the television to watch the Iowa Hawkeyes play host to the Ohio State Buckeyes, currently the number one college football team in the country. The hype around this game has been so huge, wire services are now hyping the hype. No matter, the hype is worthy. In their entire history the Hawkeyes have only played the number one team in the country eight times, and they have never emerged victorious.

It will be different this time... won't it?

Iowa may end up 8-4, thanks to an extremely weak schedule, which includes only two quality opponents (OSU and Michigan) plus one other that's respectable (Wisconsin). The rest are a collection of palookas and tomato cans that could not win 3 games in the SEC, combined.

Recruitment at Iowa has been hurt by rumors about Ferentz leaving, and it shows; this team is a shadow of the team that played LSU two years ago. The glaring weaknesses are an offensive line that can't open holes and a talent-poor defensive secondary. It is too bad that Tate has to finish his career with this supporting cast.
