Iowa has a very favorable schedule again in 2008.
Here's a look:
Maine: They would have a tough time with Coe College...they play teams like Stony Brook and other's I've never heard of, and still don't win. A sure W .
Florida International: 0-11 last year, Shilacked by everyone
Pittsburg: very average team, but so is Iowa.
Rest of schedule:'
It looks like an easy five wins with Maine, Florida Int. Northwestern, Minnesota,Pittsburg, and the rest are even bets. No Ohio State or Michigan again. If they don't do it in 2008, 2009 could be a disaster with Michigan and Ohio State back plus Northern Iowa. This coming year is make or break for Ferentz it would appear.
