Just doing some housekeeping.

There is a hunger out there for some numbers I'll have a hard time getting to. If anyone knows where every game is available, preferable all-22 video, online, let me know. I'll break it down. Probably after the bowl.

Don't totally throw away Iowa's shot at the Cap One Bowl. It's a possibility. I think B1G gets two in the BCS no matter what happens this weekend.

One stat that really shows growth, IMO, for the offense is third downs. Last season, Iowa was No. 89 in the country. This year, it finished No. 32. That's incredible growth. (And, IMO, a lot of that is Jake Rudock.)

Last year, Iowa was No. 59 in the nation allowing opponents 5.54 yards a play. This year, it's No. 6 at 4.6. Once again, incredible growth.

From the Team Rankings site (great resource).

-- Iowa was No. 60 in this set of preseason rankings.

-- The same rankings have the Hawkeyes No. 21 today. And the little green arrow is going up.
