Last week wasn't a great one for the Hawkeyes. But let's move on...

Iowa faces Rutgers on Saturday, and as Desmond King said Tuesday: "We’ve just got to be ready to play."

Linemen James Daniels and Sean Welsh will be back in action against the Scarlet Knights and fans are hopeful that the Hawkeyes won't repeat the dropped passes, mental mistakes, and poor blocking that plagued them in that North Dakota State shocker.

That said, it's not yet time to fear, Iowa fans, because history says the Hawkeyes can recover.

Join columnist Chad Leistikow (@ChadLeistikow) and recruiting reporter Chris Cuellar (@cuellarchris) on the Hawk Central Facebook page live at noon Wednesday to talk all things Hawkeyes football. Tune in to Facebook to ask them questions live in the comments or tweet them in advance.
