Iowa Football: Analysis and Observations After the Hawkeyes' Season Opener

On Saturday, September 3, the Iowa Hawkeyes beat the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles, 34-7, in what could best be described as a weird and upsetting game.

First of all, the upsetting—true freshman Mika'il McCall was lighting the Golden Eagles up. Yes, it was the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles, but he looked like a natural out there and I don't say that lightly.

Then he was tackled and his knee buckled and, according to Kirk Ferentz, he is likely done for the year. That was quite the buzz-kill when compounded with Marcus Coker's issues.

There is just something about Iowa running backs. If the Hawks weren't my team, I would be forced to laugh at it.

As for the weird—the rain, darkness and lightning was so bad that the game was delayed for over an hour.

Due to the lack of continuity, the weather and the poor play of the Golden Eagles, I know only slightly more about the 2011 Hawks than I did before the game.

Nevertheless, there are some things one can garner from the win. The following slideshow will look at 10 of them.
