U.N.I coach Mark Farley says it is time for the Panthers to “move on” and get ready for their home opener against South Dakota. The Panthers suffered a heartbreaking 17-16 loss at Iowa in their season opener. Farley says it’s obvious they are going to have to find a way to pick themselves after missing an opportunity at Iowa. He says they face a very good South Dakota team, which makes it as double issue of getting ready.
The Panthers had two chances to win the game in the final seconds but the Hawkeyes blocked two Billy Hallgren field goals. Farley says it’s “time wasted to think about Iowa anymore, I’ve seen that kick a thousand times on TV and we haven’t made it yet.” He says they need to move forward and look at South Dakota.
South Dakota is 1-0 after opening the season with a victory over William Penn last Thursday. He says they have a great quarterback and a great receiver and have done a good job of transitioning to One Double A football.
