Iowa Hawkeye Football: 11 Things Insight Bowl Loss Says About the Hawks in 2012

Though it wasn't pretty, and was often a microcosmic view of the way this season has gone, the Insight Bowl had a good deal to tell the fans about what to expect from the 2012 Iowa Hawkeyes.

In the end, the Hawks lost 14-31 to Oklahoma, though the score makes it appear that it was easier for OU than it was.

Not to take anything away from the Sooners, but it occasionally seemed like it was less a matter of Oklahoma winning and more a matter of Iowa losing.

Of course, all credit goes to Oklahoma for forcing Iowa to shoot itself in the foot.

Now that 2011 is over for the Hawkeyes, it is worth looking at the bowl and asking what it says about next season.

Needless to say, we can only hope that the Hawks' top two running backs, both of who were suspended for the bowl, will also be part of the equation in 2012.

But one can only hope.
