the way we have been forcing turnovers i would say it favors us especially for defense and special teams with a slippery football... we defintely have a speed over them though, and wet conditions would negate that some what
I expect to see more alot more 4 and 5 wide-out sets this week. If Norm Parker is going to try and play base defense by putting his Mike lb on RJ than we will take that all day.....seems fairly simple to me that either they are going to have to adjust to what we are doing, or we'll run 'em off the field.
Maybe slowing down the game is good for us. It might reduce the number of tackles that we've been missing out in space. If guys are afraid of loosing footing they may be more focused on containment and making a sure tackle.
I don't see it as a huge effect either way. Footing will be subject, so anyone making a lot of cuts will have to make smooth transitions in the hole and when running routes. It won't affect North-South runners very much. If anyone, it will affect ISU more, as they rely on speed more than Iowa does... but I don't see it having that great of effect simply because both teams have to deal with it. The ball will be slippery and both teams will need to take control of the pigskin.
