The Hawkeyes are 4-0 for only the 4th time under Kirk Ferentz, who is the longest tenured coach in all the land. So yeah this doesn’t happen but when it does it’s usually a harbinger that the season will be bigger than the line at Marcos Grilled Cheese stand in IC at 2am. To remain […]

The 2019 Iowa Hawkeyes: 2 games, 2 covers led by a beef jerky stuck in your tooth stubborn defense (no surprise) with talented depth at running back and wide receiver (big surprise). The most diverse Hawkeye offensive attack since 2010 has Iowa State Head Coach Matt Campbell waking up in cold sweats gripping his Winnie […]

Mr. Summer Breeze has headed into his closet and returned looking like David Puddy donning his school colors on his face: football is back. Your Iowa Hawkeyes finished off last season with serious momentum: dumping a SEC squad in the bowl game (Kirk Ferentz owns that conference) and being the 1st school to have TWO […]

No More Cow Bell

by

Happy New Year Hawkeye Nation. Another NYD Bowl Game for Kirk Ferentz. He owned this day in his 1st decade as Head Hawk. The 2nd decade has been more turbulent than a ride in the movie Airplane. This is officially the beginning of the 3rd decade of the Kirk Ferentz era at Iowa. Time for […]

63-0 was the final in Champaign, IL last Saturday. The worst defeat for the Illini in school history. Seems fitting for this year’s Hawkeye squad who has a very Sammy Sosa like approach (tip of the cap to the Commish)….they pound weak to mediocre teams, but just can’t get it done against above average to […]

Santa

by

Despite what retailers think, its taboo talking about Santa before Turkey Day (respect Thanksgiving people, if your Christmas light are up at this moment, your property tax bill just increased 50%). But after last week’s excruciating result of losing our 3rd straight to the Nerds and now facing Illinois led by gray beard Lovie Smith, […]

Revenge ON the Nerds

by

PU. Yes those are Purdue’s initials, and the stench of their home base, but it’s the best description of Iowa’s late game performances in their 3 losses. I’ll put my OCD on the sidelines here, to avoid dwelling on another blown game outside of this comments: the Hawks are 1-7 in the Big Ten play the last 2 […]

Need You More Than Ever

by

The Iowa Hawkeyes needed a clean game, primarily a clean game from the QB position, to win in Happy Valley. Excruciatingly, none of that happened, not close. The Hawkeye offense was as clean as Pamela Anderson, and yet another big stage opportunity is urinated down the black and gold pants. But here’s the deal: the […]

Bats

by

Maryland’s football team could have been populated with dudes carrying baseball bats from Sammy Sosa’s closet and the Hawkeyes still would have pounded them. The 23-0 victory last Saturday was one of the most dominate defensive performances of the Ferentz era: a shutout, only 39 plays ran, and 116 total yards allowed. So after October […]
