Iowa Football: What Went Wrong and Can Anything Be Done to Fix It, Part Two

As I mentioned in the previous installment of this public catharsis, quite a few things went wrong for Iowa this season. What started as a possible national championship run wound up an ugly and embarrassing 7-5.

The fact is, I don't think that many people are especially taken aback by any offensive woes that Iowa had. After all, offensive woes for this group are par for the course.

I think it was the defensive struggles that were a new and bitter pill for Hawk fans to swallow.

As for those offensive woes, when you look at Iowa's statistics over the last 10 years, you begin to see why fans have somewhat low expectations.

In the last decade, Iowa's scoring offense has ranked: (starting in 2001) 45th, 13th, 92nd, 101st, 22nd, 27th, 109th, 53rd, 89th, and 61st.

I do think those numbers have to be put in perspective, but I will save that for the third installment.

For now, the question is what needs to change with this offense, if anything, for the Hawks to avoid another season like 2010? Or perhaps another way to put it is what needs to change with this offense, so that the team's fate doesn't always rest solely on the defense's shoulders?
