Winning the close ones: Can 2011 maintain the pattern?

In 2008, the Hawkeyes were a 9-4 team that had a good bowl win against an SEC team. In 2009, the Hawkeyes were an 11-2 team that won a BCS bowl game. The weird thing? The 2008 team might have been...

2010 BCS 'Play-off'

All of you have heard the argument for the 16-team play-off in college football and about the same amount of people support it. Our bowl system now allows 70 teams to play in bowl games.... over...

The perfect Stanzi situation? 1-3 qts. 2010, 4th qt. 2009?

In case that title totally confused you, here is what I'm saying: Stanzi made the 4th quarter his bitch in 2009. In 2010, he made the other quarters feel loved. So, what if we combined his stats...

Woody Orne, a monster o-lineman for Iowa (that went to my high school!), is an Iowa second-teamer. He was a TE/DE in high school, one of the best basketball players you will meet, and still holds weightroom records in Fairfield. And now he joins Ricky Stanzi in the fight for patriotism. America, FUCK YEAH.
