I watched the game in its entirety and I think that, despite the embarassing loss, Iowa looked like a very strong, talented football team.
Where you watching the Iowa/USC game that was on ABC at around 8:30pm or so? If so, how could you say Iowa looked good? Brad Banks played like crap, and Iowa showed what it had when it had to face actual competition. They got beat handily on both sides of the ball.
And Southern Cal looks like the best team in the nation (I'd bet they would beat Miami decisively).
Best team in the nation...with 2, thats TWO loses? How about no. Top 2 or 3 clearly. And decisively beat Miami? Not quite. Yes they could win, and have a much better shot that OSU, but that would be a very good game, and they would not blow out Miami.
