    The game was 17-10 by the time Roberson came in. One possession game and the play Clifford was hit on was close to being his 3rd int. He was looking worse and worse after the 1st quarter and needed to run more to move the chains. He was gonna keep getting hit playing like that. I don't think Iowa wins if Clifford stays in, but to say Iowa loses by more than a TD with him is kind of a stretch. Clifford was due for more turnovers the way he was playing. PSU not having a run game is what did them in. Clifford threw so many awful passes when under pressure. Just look at his first play. Brian Ferentz sucks so much for not turning that into 7.

    Iowa has only allowed like 17 2nd half points with 14 of those basically being garbage TDs. Phil Parker is really good at in-game adjustments.

    Iowa was getting shredded pretty good when Cliff was in the game. We had receivers running free all night, our backup is just complete ass and couldn’t hit any of them. Great win. PSU has plenty of issues and will lose more games, but I think it is very reasonable to think PSU wins that game relatively comfortably with Clifford. Not just scoring more points, but also not getting dominated by field position since we did absolutely nothing with the backup. The yards per play difference was like 5.8 with Cliff and 2 with Roberson. I think the total yardage was like 200+ to 70 at time of injury. End of the day it doesn’t matter… we haven’t recruited QBs and it was an embarrassment how bad and unprepared the backup was and that’s on the staff.

    obviously Iowa will walk to the B1G title game. For your sake I would hope you play someone other than Ohio State

    Herb Burdette’s Weekly B1G Self Loathing Rankings:

    1. Nebraska. Some artists work with paint on canvas. Some work with musical notes and write for symphonies. Scott Frost works with a football and the fourth quarter against Michigan proved once again that he is a master at his craft. A great coach put his players in position to succeed, and Frost knew exactly whose number to call for a critical fumble to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. This Nebraska team is on a truly historic run.

    2. Penn State. When starting QB Sean Clifford went down, Penn State offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich had a plan. His problem was that his backup QB Ta’Quan Roberson was completely incapable of executing. Roberson had Joe Bausermanesque stat line, 7/21 34 yards 0 TDS and 2 ints. The Nittany Lions are mostly dead if Clifford is dead, but get a bye and then Illinois.

    3. Maryland. There was a time when Maryland was 4-0, right outside the top 25. In the last two weeks, they have been outscored 117-31.

    4. Illinois. After being shut out this week by Wisconsin, the year end matchup with Northwestern is looking like the battle for the Big Ten’s worst.

    5. Rutgers. This team keeps trying to get our attention. It’s going to take some effort to avoid Minnesota taking the number five spot this week.

    It’s remarkable. You could change the result of a single play in each of their losses and they likely are undefeated right now.

    Since the Illinois game, I think Nebraska has covered every game against the spread. Could argue they should have beat both Michigan schools. I think the Husks could get Iowa on Black Friday.

    Fleck did not disclose the specific injury or how serious it is (which is his consistent disclosure for injuries) saying it was the family it player’s choice to disclose.

    Fresh from the Big Ten front office, this week’s press release highlights!

    This week is the first poll since the AP poll was established in 1936 that five B1G teams have made the top 10.

    Iowa has won its last six games against ranked opponents, which is Iowa’s longest streak since 1960.

    Against Rutgers, MSU became just the fifth team in FBS history to have a 300 yard passer, 200 yard receiver, and 200 yard rusher in a single game.

    Wisconsin has held 4 of its last 5 opponents to less than 50 yards rushing.
