Sitting in Kinnick 138 on Saturday, I think I witnessed something not seen much for the past few years – a bona fide pass rush. I’ve got the pics to prove it. It became clearly evident in the 4th quarter. Maybe we’ve seen that young Hawkeye defense grow up a little bit, and hopefully they can keep growing throughout the season. While the Hawks only registered 1 sack against UNI, they had 2 QB “hurries” officially. But pressure definitely came in the 4th quarter harder than it had in the first 2 games. Here are a few shots I took showing Louis Trinca-Pasat having his way with his blocker and Greg Castillo getting some pressure on the QB from the outside.
I also got a shot of JVB getting drilled right after hurling the pass that Keenan Davis caught and nearly converted for the touchdown.
