Ex-Iowa QB reacts to US government taking shot at Hawkeyes
How bad has Iowa been offensively over the past several years? Bad enough that even a division of the United States government took a shot at the Hawkeyes.
The person who runs the official X account for the House Judiciary Committee Republicans did Iowa dirty on Thursday night. As a way of trolling president Joe Biden, the account highlighted a portion of a quote from the Commander in Chief in which Biden said his administration needed to “go on offense tonight.” The GOP shared the quote along with a photo of former Iowa quarterback Spencer Petras huddled up with his teammates.
Joe Biden to his staff: “We need to go on offense tonight.”

That is just cold, but Petras had a great reaction.

Iowa went 10-4 this season despite averaging 15.4 points per game, which was the second-lowest mark in the entire country. The betting totals for some of their games were truly surreal.
Petras played for Iowa for six seasons before transferring to Utah State as a graduate transfer, so he has heard plenty of jokes about the team’s offense. He probably just never expected one from the U.S. government.
