Week 12 Recap: Michigan

Well friends, the football floor of the bandwagon is pretty empty now, but that’s ok, as the Iowa Hoops section might soon overflow and will be needing the space.

The Hawks hung in there for one quarter Saturday, coming right back to match Michigan at 7 all with James’ td pass to freshman tight end Henry Krieger Cole, heretofore HKC.  

But early in the 2nd, Michigan was facing a 3rd and 17 from the Iowa 37 yard line.  

And the play was the Iowa 2012 season in miniature.

Gardner had time, but then as he rolled to the near side, the Hawks cut him off, and he had to turn back to the far side of the field - all the while the line was chasing him, while downfield, the secondary could not stay with their receivers for what seemed like 13 seconds, and then Gardner fired the ball downfield and found a wide open Roundtree in the corner of the end zone. It was caught, the Hawks trailed 14-7.
