Week 1: Miami (Ohio)

After the Hawkeyes got thru a rather snoozing first half (leading 10-7), form returned in the second as the Hawks wore down the RedHawks to a tune of 213 rushing yards, and a comfortable 21 for 30 for Stanley, for 252 and 3 td passes.  Including the first of Oliver Martin’s Iowa career.  On that ground attack it was Sargent with 14 tugs for 91, Young 9 for 48, each with a rushing TD.  And then a true freshman Goodson #15, who had 9 tugs for 36 yards.  ISM had 1 for 16 and Stanley thru in 5 runs/scrambles for 20 yards.  

Which leads us to one new wrinkle the Iowa offense showed on Saturday.  That was, the read/option.  Stanley in the shotgun, with a running back to his side, then snapping the ball, pausing for a brief second, then handing it off.  Of course Nate is not a running QB so the threat of him pulling it down from the tailback is practically nil, but of note, he could fake the handoff then fire away down the field if the defensive backfield has surged forward thinking the handoff was there.  So we may see more of this in the weeks ahead.  Iowa did run well out of this formation, which I guess you could really call more of a draw since Nate is more likely to throw the ball than run with it.
