The fashion in which Iowa won last Saturday night's contest usually has a way of lingering around a program for years. There's big wins, and then there's wins that will last a lifetime.
On a night where the Hawkeyes were lead out of the tunnel by the always inspiring Brett Greenwood, under the lights in Kinnick Stadium, in front of a large crowd in Iowa City, without starters LeShun Daniels and Drew Ott at 100 percent, Iowa knocked off Pittsburgh with a game winning 57 yard field goal in the final seconds. These are the type of moments that last a lifetime, for media members alike, the fans, the coaches, and the players.
Hawkeyes offensive guard Jordan Walsh has been off to an incredible start to the season and he immediately mentioned afterwards that though every game is important, the finish from this past Saturday is one he won't soon forget.
"Every win is important," Walsh addressed. "If you ask our coaches, they'll say the same thing. We just need to watch film, and improve off of that. Oh absolutely (a moment I won't forget). Night game, last second field goal. I'll remember this forever."
Though the win was a powerful one for the Iowa Hawkeyes, they have a 24 hour rule in place. They enjoy each win for 24 hours, and then it's on to the next one. And with that in mind, they have bigger goals in mind for the rest of the year.
"It (win over Pittsburgh) just means we're one step closer to where we want to be," Walsh pointed out. "That is championship level performance and undefated. This just gives us another step."
The next step would be a win over North Texas, who comes into Kinnick Stadium on Saturday.
