Social Media Reactions to Iowa’s 27-10 Win Over Rutgers

Raise your hand if you went into tonight expecting a comfortable win!

All year, it has been difficult for the Iowa Hawkeyes. It was a pain for fans to get through the first two games of the year, the Hawkeyes offense seemingly uninterested in the opposing teams’ end zones, preferring the spotlight to be firmly placed on punter Tory Taylor. It was ugly splitting those first two games against South Dakota State and Iowa State, the Hawkeyes’ 7-3 week one victory over the Jackrabbits providing an immediate damper on the season.

Even in a game where the result was never in question, defeating Nevada 27-0, the weather made this one hard to get through… literally! The game took forever with countless weather delays.

There was none of that tonight though. No reliance on safeties to get you the win, no weather delays to prolong the pending victory, and no Sopranos crew on the sideline hassling the Ferentz’ to throw the game.

In a game many expected to go right down to the wire, Iowa won this one fairly comfortably 27-10. The offense looked better, especially the running game, the defense as stout as expected, and Tory Taylor once again put the team in the best situation to win with his leg.

After a very scary two-week stretch to start the season, we’re starting to see little chunks of improvement by the Hawkeyes each week. Nobody is going to favor them heading into Michigan next week, but the doom and gloom surrounding the program after that 10-7 loss to the Cyclone has somewhat started to dissipate. It was a much cheerier mode on social media, and here are the highlights from the Hawkeyes comfortable win over the Scarlet Knights.
