This is fun to view. You have me drunk on possibility.
In this age some of the things that should be an advantage, or no longer.
Some P-5 teams with highly rated senior dominated lineups have players protecting their health for the next level. Iowa does not have a senior dominated lineup. I am not drinking ELA's Kool-Aid. My prediction for the Hawkeyes remains 8-9 wins. And, actually, with four down lineman suspended for Game 1 (from both OL and DL), Game #1, NIU, will be a big challenge. I think Iowa intends to challenge Wisconsin this year; but it remains to be seen how successfully. At least Iowa should develop some depth out of the NIU game.
