Retrospective Ambivalence: Remembering 2021 Hawkeye Football

Before summer winds down and we turn our attention fully to the 2022 college football season, I would like to propose a toast:

After the clock ran out against Kentucky on January 1, many of us were unsure how to feel about the 2021 football season. Losing a very winnable bowl game certainly did nothing to send us into the long off-season in good cheer. But a 10-2 regular season is rarified air for all but a small handful of programs, and it certainly felt like overachievement when measured against Iowa’s mounting injuries, makeshift offensive line, and mercurial play calling.
