OFFENSE: The plus is for the solid first quarter. The F is for the rest of the game.
DEFENSE: Can't be too critical of a unit that only have up 13 points, 10 of them on short-field drives.
SPECIAL TEAMS: Yeah, there were some positives. But not enough to balance out the one big negative.
COACHING: We can quibble over the offensive game plan. But this was more about poor execution by the players, especially on offense.
INTANGIBLES: We didn't get the sense that the White House made a lick of difference in this game.
OTHER GUY: Have to be impressed by how cool the Hawkeyes were under pressure.
OFFICIALS: Why have instant replay if you don't have people who know how to use it?
CROWD: For a prime-time game with everyone in white, we did not sense the buzz that has been in the stadium previously.
