More surprising: 2015 Iowa: 12-0 -OR- 2016: winning final 3?
Winning Final 3
THEY PLAYED PRETTY BAD IN THOSE LOSSES BUT TO BEAT MICHIGAN THEM DOMINATING NEBRASKA I TRULY THINK WE COULD COMPETE AGAINST OHIOSTATE AND WIN ON THE SHOULDERS OF THE DEFENSEReply
12-0 was at ride, but not absurdly shocking considering the schedule. 3-0 after the PSU debacle and still no consistent passing game? holy cow!Reply
After the beatdown they received by Penn State I didn't see them winning another game.Reply
12-0 is 12-0. Something Iowa hadn't ever done before or seen coming. Iowa winning the last 3 games may be surprising but it shouldn't have been completely unexpected since we all thought they should have been capable of it before the season. Nobody thought 12-0 was remotely possible before last yr.Reply
You have to remember where Iowa football was going into the 2015 season. A lot, and I mean a LOT of long-time alumni had given up their season tickets. The stack of complaint letters and such to Barta were staggering. NOBODY saw 12-0 coming. This year, it is only what we had expected all season.Reply
