Iowa 24

Michigan 35

• Before every football game this season, two of the Daily
football writers will take the weekend’s matchup to the
PlayStation 2.

• Play of the game — After trailing 17-0, Michigan
pulled to within 24-21 at halftime thanks to a 73-yard touchdown
catch by WR #1 as time expired.

 

Press conference quotes:

Iowa coach Gennaro Filice: “Blowing a 17-0 lead in
the first half is embarrassing. Like playing a college football
video game for six hours straight.”

“Coach Burke’s ‘Throw-it-up’ offense
shows his his true coaching prowess, or lack thereof.”

“Do you know if there’s a coaching vacancy at
Indiana? I heard Bob Hunt and Sharad Mattu have already applied for
the prospective job.”

Michigan coach Chris Burke: “Well QB #12 set a team
record with five touchdowns — if only I had started
him.”

“We had three TD passes of 72 yards or more, so that was
pretty good.”

“No, no one expected it to be snowing. It dropped 60
degrees in one day — I thought the world was
ending.”

“CB #3 had eight pass breakups and one interception
— coach Filice should be ashamed of throwing at him that
much.”
