Iowa Football: 5 Reasons Hawkeyes Are Bound to Overachieve 2013

In 2013, the Iowa Hawkeyes football program and their head coach Kirk Ferentz are more likely to overachieve than underachieve.

Of course, one has to consider the current expectations on the football program.

Collegefootballnews.com has the Hawks at 4-8 with a winless Big Ten season. Athlonsports.com has Iowa sixth in their division. ESPN has the Hawkeyes 11th in the conference.

The vast majority put Iowa in the bottom three, along with Purdue and Illinois.

There are no previews that have Iowa outside of the bottom five, which includes Purdue and Illinois, along with resurgent Indiana and Minnesota.

One can go so far as to say that most expect the Hawkeyes to fall somewhere in the four-six wins area with five wins serving as the mean. As the following will attest, six-eight wins, or overachieving, is more likely for 2013 Iowa than two-four wins.
