The College Football World Is Yet Again Piling On Iowa Quarterback Spencer Petras For A Horrific Interception

At this point, it’s not even fun to pile on Iowa Hawkeyes quarterback Spencer Petras. Petras, a senior, has been downright horrific for the Hawkeyes. In turn, Iowa has been similarly horrific on offense.

In fact, Kirk Ferentz’s refusal to make a change at quarterback has become a running joke this season in the college football world.

The Hawkeyes are 3-3 on the season and through six starts, Petras has somehow thrown just two touchdowns against three interceptions. So unsurprisingly, Iowa went into Columbus as massive 30-point underdogs against second-ranked Ohio State.

And, also unsurprisngly, it took just one play for Petras to throw an interception that had college football fans completely befuddled.

Fans were well and truly baffled by what Petras was trying to do. But the questions weren’t just for him. They wondered why Iowa continues to run him out there as well.

The definition of insanity is continuing to do the same things and expecting different results.

Honestly, it just feels like some sort of sick, twisted punishment at this point.
