Better late than never, I guess.

Michigan is coming to Kinnick on Saturday. Should be a fun one - Iowa is coming off a bye, so they should be healthy and rested. Michigan escaped Northwestern in a triple-overtime thriller (Northwestern had WAY too many chances to put the Wolverines away but failed each and every time) so if they're still hung over from last weekend, I think Iowa takes care of business.

If Michigan can somehow put together a complete game (something I haven't seen in a while) I think Iowa could be in trouble. UM's offense, when clicking, puts Iowa's to shame, so Iowa's defense needs to step up and give the offense good field position. Iowa's offense isn't bad, but it's methodical and bland. However, if Iowa can give their running backs some room to run like they did against Purdue, it'll set up perfectly for the playaction and provide some much-needed balance for their offensive attack.

Michigan is a hard team to put a finger on. They do have talent on both sides of the ball, but there's some obvious issues which are keeping them from realizing their potential and I don't think it gets resolved this week. They won't let Iowa walk all over them, but they'll return to Ann Arbor empty handed. They'll almost certainly regroup and give Ohio State all they've got in two weeks, though.

28-21 Iowa

It is the victory song.

And why did you quote my entire post if you were not going to discuss the actual content?

What kind of victory song doesn't involve beer? It is the very definition of victory.

There's a reason Greg Davis was fired from Texas.

Bubble screen much up there?

Partially. But the Big Ten also traditionally plays far fewer evening games than most other conferences, especially after September's over and done with. There's some sort of rule (don't know if it's official or de facto) that prevents Big Ten teams from playing night games in November.
