The Hawkeyes are moving into a very different part of their schedule.
Look down the list. You don’t see a legit power football team. In the Big Ten anymore, it’s probably Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State, which can seemingly run at any gear.
So, all those moves you saw defensive coordinator Phil Parker make last week at Minnesota? Get used to that.
Get used to safety Amani Hooker sliding over to outside linebacker. You’re probably going to see that more and more. You’re probably going to see more personnel.
Offensively, was the wide receiver explosion last week a one-week wonder? If it isn’t, is Iowa’s passing game in better shape than its running game?
At 4-1, this Iowa football team is doing things. If it gets out of Bloomington, Ind., at 5-1, that’s one spread offense down and six more to go.
