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.

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. Yet, we also saw so many yards, so many first downs, and so many points and opportunities left on the field. The Hawkeyes were capable of beating Wisconsin, Purdue, and/or Kentucky, but also could have easily lost to Penn State, Minnesota, Nebraska, and/or Odd Year Northwestern.
