blame the defense all you want but the offense and special teams have done nothing to help them. They never should have fielded the ball on the punt inside the 5 and then they tripped on the kick off to get the ball at the 10. The defense gets a turnover and instead of it being 1st and goal it’s 1st and 10 from the Minnesota 45.
Wow, this defense is simply atrocious. Nobody even tries to get off of blocks or to make plays. It'd sure be nice if even one guy back there showed some level of desire. They've already checked out on that side of the ball and it's not halftime yet.
No different than the game last year...offense doesn’t show up and Iowa scores 20 Ambrose the half. Gophers then have to chase the game all second half. This vaunted passing game is an absolute mess right now.
