WEEK 4: Badgers

Well, kind of glad the Hawks had the bye week to get over yet another heartbreak against the Badgers.  Yes, the conventional wisdoms says you want to get right back out there, but after the usual slug fest that game entails, probably best for a week of rest and recovery before the 8 week run into Turkey Weekend.

Yes the special teams were the obvious problem in this game, the two turnovers on punts, one giving the Badgers a TD, and one denying the Iowa offense the ball inside the Badger side of the 50.

But also the offense had two 1st and goals from inside the Badger 10 and got only 3 points out of them.
