It took Iowa QB Spencer Petras one play to throw an interception against Ohio State, and Hawkeyes fans have HAD it.
Petras, who leads arguably the worst offense in the country, opened Saturday’s huge showdown against Ohio State by throwing an awful pick.
Luckily, the turnover only led to three points thanks to Iowa’s excellent defense, but it was still a terrible pass nonetheless.
Spencer Petras continues bad play against Ohio State
I mean, what in the world are we doing here? Who was Petras throwing it to?!
Things didn’t get much better on Iowa’s next drive, which resulted in a quick three-and-out and saw Petras nearly get picked off again on third down.
As they’ve done all season, the Iowa defense then bailed out the senior QB by returning a fumble for a touchdown on the very next series.
Regardless, Petras has been horrible this season.
He’s at or near the bottom in several passing categories, and has completed just 54% of his passes for two touchdowns with four interceptions.
The Iowa offense has been unwatchable, and sits DEAD LAST in the country in yards per game (238.8).
Teams in front of the Hawkeyes include Massachusetts, UCONN, FIU and USF.
Behind Petras on the depth chart is Alex Padilla, a junior. With the starter struggling, offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz was probed about the idea of turning to the backup.
His response was baffling to say the least.
Maybe the upside would be not throwing a pick on the first play? I don’t know, I’m just spit-balling here.
Anyway, Iowa fans are clearly over Petras, and went OFF on him after the pick.
