It is starting to show on the field. Nebraska has been flipped, Iowa has gotten worse and WI is going in the right direction.

Kill was 2-3 vs Nebraska and -11.8 per game
2-3 vs Iowa and -.4 per game.
0-5 vs WI and -17.4 per game

Claeys was 0-3 vs NE -7, IA-7, WI-14

Fleck is 3-1 vs NE and +10.5 per game
0-4 vs IA and -14 per game
1-3 vs WI and -8.25 per game

Iowa has been better during Fleck's years than during Kill's years.
Not sure final scores are the best metric for illustrating the point that we are getting more competitive with our rivals. That said, watching the Wisconsin games from the past few years there is no doubt that the talent gap has narrowed significantly between us and them. Same can be said for Iowa.

Now Fleck just has to figure out how to pull out more victories against those two schools to really help the program take the next step up the ladder.

We have bumped up from also ran to fringe contender in the West. Find a way to start beating Iowa and Wisconsin consistently and the program will become a legit yearly contender for the West. From this point on talent really shouldn't be an issue as our classes have been on par with both those schools over the past few seasons. Now we find out if we are bringing in the right guys to get us over the hump.

Honestly Iowa football has been really impressive the last two years is the biggest takeaway to me. They’ve had a revival. It is like it’s 2008 again.


6-2 this year. But they haven’t won fewer than 8 games since 2014

I would like Kirk to retire

IIRC, most of the games they lost to these opponents is not by a whole lot.

Might as well place this here:

Which is because Bohl's longest tenured assistant from NDSU, in fact I believe his only remaining from the 2013 staff that he brought with him, is becoming the head coach at Montana State.

Great move by Bohl. Will run the exact same offense, knows it as well as anyone, and was a QB himself in his playing days.

Iowa just lost their offensive line coach and will also lose their running backs coach by tomorrow. Big holes to fill. Will miss their running backs coach as he was their top recruiter.

I’d rather have them lose some starting linemen and their #1 RB.

He meant the point differential in the games against Iowa has gotten worse --- not that they as a team have gotten worse.
No more dreadful than in 2020. Easily the worst overall performance of the season. Coaching, playing, all around.
