Oklahoma’s dominance over Iowa State continued on Saturday.  The Sooners are now 70-5-2 all-time against the Cyclones.  They’ve never lost in Jack Trice Stadium. 

Same old story for ISU, defense makes plays, keeps them in it for a while, but the offense can’t do anything.  Unfortunately this is ISU football in 2012.  Unless the defense has an A+ game its likely the result will be a loss.  I give the defense a B-, that may be generous.  It’s hard to win when you give up almost 600 yards.  

Steele Jantz didn’t do anything to kill the Cyclones, he and the offense just couldn’t make the big play when needed.  You HAVE to capitalize on turnovers, with TD’s, not FG’s.   

ISU needs 1 more win to go bowling.  I think they get 1 more, no idea when that 1 will come.   

Shocker, Iowa loses again.  This Iowa team is in a tailspin.  4-5 overall.  The Hawks have to win 2 of their final 3 games to make a bowl.  I think they finish 5-7, and lets be honest, thats likely best for all parties.  Time to move on, this team doesn’t need to go play Kent State in a bowl game. 

Kirk Ferentz passed on a 4th and inches midway through the 4th, trailing by 3.  Iowa punted, Indiana ran out the clock. Is anyone surprised Ferentz punted?  Seriously?  I don’t agree with the call to punt, and I’m not surprised by the decision.  At this point in the season there’s not much more to lose, oh well, another game.  But at least if you lose, do it by GOING FOR A WIN.  If you get stuffed, you get stuffed.  Take a chance.  

Anyone looking for tickets to Iowa-Purdue?  My guess is there will be a LOT available next Saturday.   

Oregon gave up 615 yards and 51 points, they won.  The Ducks scored 62 points and racked up 730 yards.  Oregon is so much fun to watch.  Their speed is incredible.  They should finish undefeated, but who knows if they’ll get a shot at the national title.  I hope they do.  Also, I love the crazy uniforms.
