SB Nation's Black Heart Gold Pants releases their weekly look at all the reasons the Hawkeyes could lose this weekend:
Darkness On The Edge of Town. Ricky Stanzi was born and raised in Ohio where every high school football player dreams of one day becoming an Ohio State Buckeye. So common is this fantasy that merely being recruited by Ohio State can be the high point of a player's career. Alas, Ricky Stanzi was unnoticed by the Buckeyes and one can only imagine his level of motivation to finally underscore their reckless oversight. It has been a long wait. In Stanzi's first two years of eligibility the Hawkeyes did not play the Sweater Vests. Last year Stanzi was injured and unable to take the field. So this year will be Ricky Stanzi's first and last opportunity to play the Buckeyes. On Saturday, expect Stanzi to thank his lucky stars he never had to do so before.
