The 2012 Iowa football season has mercifully come to an end.
The Hawks set all kinds of new records for awfulness, and probably finished the season with the worst offense performance of the Ferentz era.
Iowa wound up 4-8, ending the season with six straight losses—the first time that has happened since 1999, head coach Kirk Ferentz's inaugural season.
Unlike with past teams, it is evident that Ferentz will have to make substantial changes this year if he hopes to right his ship. If not, expect more of the same in 2013.
However, that's still a year away.
Right now, it is worth considering who the winners and losers are from this year's Heroes Game.
