Iowa's ticket prices #9 in the country

Ninth overall and the highest for an unranked team. this is certainly relevant info looking ahead at the season and the scheduled ticket price increase/reseating for next year (which I may yet write a longer fanpost on, but will withold some judgement seeing how this year pans out)

THE DAY THE OFFENSE DIED

Words and lyrics by sailorjerry

Greatest (and worst) Sporting States in the Union

So we know Iowa Football and Basketball are the big programs in a state with no pro teams, but it's kind of shocking how poor the upper midwest is when you put the numbers all together. Great quick shot analysis by the mothership, click for the predictably high % winning states and stay for the not-so-subtle jabs at jNW and North Central IA Tech and Ag.

Sh#t Iowa Students Say-a current student's take on the meme with some funny and fairly accurate observations. It's a pretty good take on the current student body, although I'm sure we can all think of some that are missing from past decades.

B1G bowl ticket sales (via Rittenberg)

"Northwestern: School officials declined to give a number on tickets sold so far for the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas but said the sales pace is about twice that of last year's trip to the TicketCity Bowl." So, not that well.

iowa board of regents is incosolable

Board of regents shakeup at the request of Governor Branstads. Pressing issues appear to be lack of budget progress and the search to keep ISU inconsolable for perpetuity.

Nebraska/B1G Rivalry Piece at the sbn mothership

Good rivalry intro piece with a due shout out to us here at bhgp for helping stir the hate along.

Just what it sounds like, pictures of birds with arms. A treasure trove of pelican whore-ish stock photos.

Hey team,  So I'm on the board for Dubuque Oktoberfest, it's an outdoor festival this year on Saturday September 10 that benefits Camp Albrecht Acres, a summer spot for handicapped children run...

who is responsible for spilling this beer at wrigley

Wrigley. Guy holding beer, guy throwing back a visitor home run. Disaster/hilarity ensues. Great poll at the sbn mothership. The guy standing holding the beer is a hawk fan from north central Iowa, one my good friends cousins. I personally think he's responsible, but check it out and vote!

EDSBS: Gruden quarterback camp with Ricky Stanzi

From the fine folks at edsbs (Ed. Note: Yeah, this is an easy bump. Spencer and Freek nail it, as usual.)

little brothers (and sisters) are not getting it on

We knew our little siblings were nerds with a mismatched gender ratio but this unscientific but nonetheless interesting compilation of charts on sex from ok Cupid is worth a read. Of particular interest see chart #9 for the low outlier (nonlayer). had to? had to. Edit: there are no pictures but it still may not be sfw. Take that as you will.

Lousiana Monroe underdog profile

Really nice take on our week 4 opponent, Louisiana Monroe from the guys at Football Study Hall. Really great work.

Per the twitterz, Nico law will have Jake Rudock, among others, on the next installment of his show. He also tweeted earlier that the coaches would allow it, but over/under bets on how long it takes for them to actually listen to one and reconsider also begin now.

Drake vs boise

Seen the key stats from this game? Drake committed 17 turnovers against an uptempo full court press and allowed 15 offensive boards. Any combination of Besabe breakout part deux/Maygasm/Gatens shooting over 11% should score enough points to let us help Drake beat themselves. Also, anyone going to the game?

what it is

You know what it is that struck me most about Persa, what's stayed with me?  He had fun.  Up until the injury obviously, he was having fun and playing with passion and we were not.  More than...
