Hawkeyes make me smile. My opinion can always be changed but you have to give me a damn good reason to change it.

Iowa Hate a week early

I decided to do an anonymous post to the "Confessions of an ISU Student" page on Facebook, not realizing how popular it would be. It has a ton of support behind it with some rational Hawkeye fans even agreeing, but those pesky old Hawk fans have found a way to get pissed off.

Should we end the Greg Davis Experience?

I was an optimist when we picked up Greg Davis. He did amazing things at Texas, and although he had his slump at the end, I thought it was more of a Mack Brown / personel / Big 12 depth problem....

B1G Non-Con Challenges

This year's non-conference schedule is, of course, laced with too many FCS teams and lower-tier conferences. But, there are 16 games this season against teams from the "AQ 6" conferences. These are...

ESPN BOWL MANIA: BHGP PICKS

WHY HAS NO ONE CREATED A BHGP GROUP FOR ESPN'S BOWL PICKS???? Well, it doesn't matter now, because if you click on that title up there, I created one myself. The password is: amputatedtoes Please join and see how bad you suck at picking the bowl games. It doesn't matter that the bowl games have already started, as long as you have already put in an entry on ESPN, you can still join a group.

Iowa State Sucks?

Runner Rating on BHGP

I started a runner rating post on OTE, and it ended up being a hassle. A big one. Unless I get a lot of comments/recs wanting it on OTE, B1G fans will have to head over to BHGP to see the weekly top rusher. And a lot of Iowa running. I know. You are all so excited.
