The Big Ten West is so weak that there’s really no excuse for Iowa football to start making some appearances in the Big Ten Championship every couple years; at least. At least the division is weak when compared to the Big Ten East. Wisconsin and Nebraska are really Iowa’s only road blocks to Indy. You can believe in the Gophers, but I’m still skeptical.
Speaking of skepticism, lately Iowa football seems to excel when no one expects much of it. So hey, “the Hawkeyes are going to suck this year!” Meaning they actually won’t. Sure, there are all kinds of question marks with this Hawkeyes team, but there’s also plenty of reasons to be very hopeful. They could easily win eight games.Follow paulmbanks
