>> what i think, i think iowa played a relatively good football game, take away some key factors come obviously some questionable calls that occurred, i was ability to get into the end zone and then some lackluster play here and there particularly with the tackling ability on the backend with the defense of back. you see a lot of times the guys made contact with the receiver but ultimately did not bring them down ultimately resulting in >> the offense is the scores. the world to move the ball but cannot get into the end zone. what are the problems with the offense right now and how can you fix them?>> i think one of the things is, the offense the need to solve one problem but other albums, that is but the story of them all year long. for example available fixed their offense of wine but now
9:50 pm
whatever they fix, there are multiple problems that seem to pop up elsewhere. this is a questionable team right now in iowa will have to dig deep in order to finish the season strong. >> it has to be the shape of the pie we comes at a perfect time for iowa. how can they go back to the drawing board and how can the bye week benefit them? >> fim iowa right now i would definitely want to -- with the wide receivers. giving some opportunities to spend time and gain the issues that is going on with this offense, cj does not have the confidence that he had possibly with vandenberg are some of the guys that left last year. is to develop that confidence and work with these guys during his by week.>> iowa state coming off a bye week. what to expect to see from them
9:51 pm
>> i would love to see i was they come out and finish a football game. this was an opportunity for iowa state to get some rest. work on fundamental things that they did not do well. we talked about the fact that they made a lot of penalties and wanted to correct mistakes. they have had a week off and a chance to work on things. i expect them to come out hot on saturday. dew up in cedar falls, mark may change at the quarterback position. 61 point this is a for missouri state. to think this is the beginning of a new time for the you and i offense -- u of i offense? >> it could not have happened at a better time because they are going up against north dakota state on saturday. looking at the artist, 418 yards of passing over 500 yards total offense, getting 10 different players involved in the catching a receiving. what an outstanding job u of i did they dominated this football game from start to finish.>> north dakota state is coming in next to practices as big as it gets. how excited are you? >> i've excited for this
