Week 3 Recap: Iowa State

Lucky for you and your scribe, we have been too busy this week to recap this heartbreak play by play, so you will be spared from reading it.  I could have done the 1st half, with us leading 14-3, but more than one half a game makes.  And Iowa let us down big time in the 2nd.

So then, as we are now one quarter of the way through the 2014 season, we shall spend the time recapping the team’s performance through the first three games of 2014.  And hope that this is one of those Iowa teams that rebounds from a September loss, and gets stronger through October, and then shows no mercy in November.  

We will start, with the offense.
