Spencer Petras and Iowa’s offense haven’t been very good to begin 2022. The Hawkeye’s offense sputtered once again to a tune of 7 points against rival Iowa State. This was after Iowa mustered only 7 points against South Dakota State.

The Iowa quarterback appears to be ignoring the haters.

“I’m sure I know what’s out there, and I don’t give a shit,” explained Petras. “Pardon me, but my focus is on my own game, the game of football, it becomes real easy when you have a feel for what’s going on out there.”

Petras’ own game has been 201 yards and 2 picks to 0 touchdowns. That accounts for a quarterback rating of 3.4. What focus is he talking about?

Will Petras and the Iowa offense suddenly come to life against Nevada on Saturday? Up to this point, a lot of its “offense” has come from punter Tory Taylor. Taylor has already booted 16 punts for a 48.9 yard average and 9 punts inside the 20.

Petras needs to get going or Iowa is in big trouble.
