*Sigh*

Here we are, the day after.  Sure, we've got a weekend still.  A couple more games.  But the bulk of the football is done, the booze drunk, and the jerseys packed away for another year.

Double standards are fun

I learned something today.  I learned that players on a bowl team receive gifts from that bowl (Parts 2-4 are also up),  

And you thought we had a monopoly on penis related humor

2

Yes, we've all had a lot of fun at the expense of our bowl-mates over the last couple of weeks, and we are by no means done pounding those jokes. But never forget to look around. They can pop up anywhere.

Shonn brings home the silver

Showing that the coaches understood what we all know, Shonn is the best player in the league.

National _otW. Two of'em

Shonn is obvious for player. But Norm gets some hardware too as the coordinator. I know...you were expecting KOK.

Poor journalism

Or just shear stupidity?  Over the last couple of days I’ve been looking at SI’s Iowa page to read stories from various sources.  As part of that, they have a loop of 10 pictures that rotate past,...

As expected, Iowa sweeps PotW awards

Sure, it's no ref tackling somebody, but they both had a good week.

Sometimes it's not so easy to stop what you know is coming

That felt good.  I don't think there is any other way to say it.  No miscues, no "what the hell" sort of plays, just solid football.  They couldn't stop the run, so we ran.  Occasional play...

J Leman is back to save us from terrorist color commentary

J Leman is going to be on TV and I had to find out about it from another source? For shame. But still, I know my saturday will be full of freedom!

An Offensive Explosion Coming Soon

It'd better. Or the sound of high explosives isn't the sound that we're going to be hearing.

The Family Tree is a Stick

[bumped. also, his second tag would be a better title.--OPS] I had a thought the other day.  Maybe it's nothing. I assume that most coaches careers follow a curve.  Certainly not a standard...

I'm tired.

I'm not mad.  I'm not depressed.  Either of these things would imply that something completely unexpected happened Saturday. 

Sheets to start on Saturday

Gimpy elbow and all. I can't blame the guy for wanting to be out there, and maybe he does feel good. But my gut says he's not going to be at 100%.

Hawks hire Director of Player Development

2
[BUMPED: Anyone else remember Ejiasi? No? Just me?--OPS] First order of business: making sure all current and incoming players can spell his name while standing on one foot, thus ensuring they can pass a field sobriety test.

Maybe somebody should get the Trib an Iowa schedule

+

I complain that the Trib doesn't bother to cover the Hawks, it's not like there are any fans in the Chicago area, but even when they're doing it half assed, it's screwed up.

Comcast Thinks A 31 Hour Tape Delay Is Just Fine

Radio color

A couple of days ago, I was on my way home from work.  The Cubs had a day game, so I was flipping the radio stations trying to find anything interesting.  I ended up listening to the Sox (look, I'm...

Umps not happy with replay proposal

I'm no expert, but don't you think that the replay initiative should have cleared all the major hurdles with the people who would be implimenting it before preparing to roll it out?

Perchance to Tailgate

What is the worth of a closer

Jim Caple over at ESPN has an interesting article on the closer position being completely overrated.  The main point is that statistically the amount of games won while leading hasn't changed over...

Drew Clark committed to the Hawkeyes today, and it's nice to see more instate talent coming our way.

1

"I like the atmosphere on game day," Clark gave as a reason he chose Iowa over Iowa State. I've always wanted to play in front of more people than go to my high school games, he went on to say. Well, not said out loud, but you know.

"The season will be a success if ... the Hawkeyes win ten games" That would be a tremendous understatement there.
