  1. Either Iowa’s Adam Woodbury is a total klutz and can’t control his arms, hands and fingers, he’s stupid, or he’s really, really careless. Three eye pokes is ridiculous, whether intentional or not. His coach needs to tell him to avoid putting his fingers anywhere near the opposing players’ faces. Otherwise, if this trend continues, the refs will have to assume that he’s got a screw loose and can’t control himself.
