History shows that it's very difficult to win on the road in the Big Ten, particularly against a team as strong as Iowa (321 on Pomeroy after last evening, compared with our #18 ranking.) I'll be delighted if we manage it, but I expect a loss.
Also, our November didn't surprise me a great deal. Gotta learn to play tough teams without the ability to fall back on Ayo, and need to learn to play defense and move the ball. The confidence that I've felt since 2019 is that we have a coach who connects with and motivates players such that the team will get where it needs to be in February. That's the confidence I haven't had since Self was in the building.
