some truth to that but the brain trust on O (iowa) is who left them to dry. for e.g. petras in his first game as starter at iowa attempted an unimaginable 51 passes against nw, 50% of which were incomplete. total plays by iowa O were only 74. if we had pounded the ball to keep it balanced (particularly when we were up 17 points early) there is no question of the D being gassed. this game was lost by the offense, no question imo.They didn't score a lot because they were grinding it out. If you didn't see that the Iowa D was gassed then you weren't paying attention.
that said i'm undercover seeding misinfo for SF who is well connected here. respect that please.
