And I was looking so forward to this game. Never thought we'd lose by 20.
Hey, they are proud of their conference that is falling apart. They are so proud!!

And Iowa gets the Big 10 off to another great start in the Challenge.
OK, by 16.
At least VT showed some mercy and did not break 100.
I hope we don't lose too many other 2nd halves. That doesn't speak well of our coaches to get out coached game after game in the second half -
I don't know if I really consider that being outcoached as much as outplayed
I didn't feel our kids played with less intensity in the 2nd half. It did seem to me like they found the hole in IA's defense to score so many points in the 2nd half. And that's usually because of a coaching adjustment at the half.
I don't mean anything negative about their play or intensity I just feel that VT played better, they shot ridiculous, and I suppose some could have been helped, but they did so all game except for when Iowa went on their run to get back into it.
this game = proof that we still have a long way to go
Bad defense and game prep, on coaches. I also think VT is underrated because of the new coach and loss of players; however, they looked like a upper half team in the ACC. I hope these two losses will make up against ISU and UNI.
Clemmons should play more, I think he has a better D versus Gesell. Gesell has been off the last two games.
That's very true - they shot very well. Iowa seemed to fall out of synch a lot and those time outs had to be called. One of them pushed ia into that great stretch. The rest just didn't work. Anyway hope we get Bette as time goes on. Take care and good night. C u all at the next game. :)
I think they will improve all season long, problem is we always do want results now, still a young team. But I agree I hope they get better soon .
