Just how bad can the Northwestern defense look before something has to change?

How smug will Kirk Ferentz be about a passable performance from the Iowa offense? Ignore the opponent if you don’t mind.

At what point should Mickey Joseph just start having some fun while he’s still the head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers?

Why exactly did Michigan State not seem to understand the intensity of the Michigan rivalry?

Plus…some other things from that game!
