Thoughts halftime, Iowa, Michigan
- Kirk Ferentz, Iowa's coach, has proven himself down through years, but the Hawkeyes' talent level is really down. That is especially true up front defensively. Usually, Iowa's front seven is very strong. Michigan's offensive line is dominating the line of scrimmage today. Gardner literally has all day to throw. The run blocking has been stellar. Neither one of those factors is normally the case for the Wolverines. I had wondered how Iowa lost to Indiana. Now I understand why. What I can';t figure out is how Michigan State lost at home to this team. The Wolverines are just toying with these guys.
