So you are comparing Hermans 2 games to McFarlands 2 years? Wow.
Maybe the chants were unnecessary. However, it was the right move to bring him in. Arnaud needed to get out of there. Throwing another pick or two wouldn't have helped his confidence.
I didn't hear the chants. That's disappointing. Arnaud did have a very bad game, but Iowa's defense played really, really well. Arnaud forced too much, but he didn't have much to throw to, either.
With that said, there was nothing wrong with getting Tiller some reps. We got a whipping today.
Students were booing the hell outa Arnaud today. So goes the theory that Iowa fans are the only ones who boo the QB.
That being said, I was sweating it out the entire first half. Very much sweating it. And for the record, I was there in my ISU stuff, not wearing any Hawkeye apparel in the student section. I think those guys are douchebags.
I think the same thing, even if it's an Iowa Stater in Iowa City.
Arnaud looked awful, he needed to be pulled. You can't risk absolutely killing any confidence he might have. I still don't understand why we didn't run the ball more than we did though. If they're going to give you 5 yards a crack, take it. Arnaud still locks on to his receivers really bad.
This loss doesn't have me all that upset at all, really. It's not like we should have won and ****** it down our legs. We still have a decent shot at starting 3-1, and I would have taken a 72-0 loss to Iowa if you could guarantee me that we'd start 3-1.
AA was horrible all game and needed to be pulled. He is still the Clones best, first option, but he was lost out there today. ISU had way too many TOs and penalties. The actually looked pretty good running the ball and really didn't give it enough of a chance to succeed. Of course the penalties forced them into passing situations way to much.
Man, shoulda put in the Buekenator.
AA needed some better play calling. But he clearly had his worst day.
At some point you have to cut your losses with Arnaud and start looking at the future with a new QB. Anyone have any info on Bueker? Strengths? Weaknesses? Seems like he throws a decent ball. I don't need 100yrds rushing out of my QB.
