Not looking so good.

Down 10-3 late 1st half to N. Iowa at home.

How good of an FCS team is UNI?

Hopefully someone knows enough about UNI to comment. I'm not watching the game, but from looking at the gametracker and stats it really seems like the score isn't a fluke and that UNI has been the overall better team in the first half (better passing stats, better running stats particularly in the yards per carry).

No matter what is said about UNI (short of someone making the argument that they're a dark horse BCS contender), this is probably a very good sign for our chances at Iowa.

I love it. Granted.. it wouldn't make us look any better if we beat them.. but maybe UNI is exposing a weakness we can use.
UNI will not win this game. I'm almost certainly Iowa will find a way to come back and hold on.

Or it is just the first half of the first game of the season and dozens of better teams struggle like this every year then pull it together.

UNI is a good FCS team, but they're an FCS team. Iowa is not a good team, particularly not without their RB.

I bet Iowa will end up winning by 2+ scores.

I guess they picked the wrong "blackout" game

Im watching the game and whats surprising is that UNI is getting to Stanzi without blitzing. They are overpowering the Iowa offensive line. Stanzi, when he has time, is way off. UNI has also been able to run the football at will and their QB is poised and not rattled on 3rd downs.

Its still very early but these are all strengths of UA and hopefully we will have the same success.

Iowa is really having a hard time rushing too.

N. iowa been pressuring Iowa w/o a lot of blitzes, thats good for us. But I've been watching the game on Big Ten Net. and UNI has a complicated offense, spread, triple option, and many more. Iowa is a top 25 team in the polls, but w/o their starting RB they are not that good.

Iowa has ZERO running game. Stanzi's arm will have to beat our d.

If Stanzi's arm has to beat us, I like our chances. This is the first game of the year but Iowa looks very average so far.

Seems a bit early in the season to be creating jinx threads, eh?

Wow, UNI fumbles the kickoff, Iowa's RB fumbles on the second play and UNI recovers then throws a 60 yrdr to the Iowa 20!

Wow

Well Iowa just fumbled and UNI proceeds to throw a 50 yard bomb down into the red zone..

BTN has three channels. They are showing PSU/Akron, Iowa/UNI, and Purdue/Toledo

Right. We probably want Iowa to look like **** but find a way to win by one point.

I could careless if they win or lose, and I prefer that they end up winning.

That said, I like the sound of Iowa struggle to run the ball against NIU, and NIU getting pressure on the QB without blitzing.

If we establish something early it could be a very long day of catch-up for Iowa.

I'm not. I hope this isn't a bad sign for us.

On opening days that our future opponents struggle with lower-ranked competition, Arizona has this nasty tendency to do the same.

Hope for a reversal of that trend tonight and the Cats to put away the Chippewas early.

seems like even if it NIU's ball, there is no change of possesion so the clock should keep running and the game is over.

i am watching it on Big10 tv (boring games tv)...since the ball never crossed the line of scrimage and UNI recovered it...the clock stops when the player went down...so they will have another kick at it

Isn't it coming down to who touched the ball basically.

Wonder why they didn't have that much passion of front the rest of the game?
