I would say it was representative. I froze my rump in the stadium at Ryan Field and watched them fail to adjust to Colter’s scrambling all game long, watched Vandenberg overthrow and underthrow receivers all game long and would rather have been in the emegency room with a broken ankle all game long. Representative? I [...]

To be frank, this guy would have to have been a combination of Larry Station and Dick Butkus to “live up to the expectations”. He has been a good linebacker when healthy on some pretty bad Iowa teams. I am inclined to cut him a break, Patrick Vint notwithstanding.

This is a complex issue, loaded with strange psychological factors and nuances tat most of us cannot truly understand. The victims are often terrified into identification with their captors, much like Stockholm Syndrome. This leads some hard-of-thinking people to believe that “they must have liked it or they would have escaped”, as Rush Limbaugh said [...]
Yes, Sanji, I remember those days. I was in my last year of high school when we played the likes of UCLA, Penn State and Notre Dame. I think we won two games in two years. Personally, I think what we are going to end up with is games against New Mexico State, Army,Troy State [...]

It is the mass shootings that give that impression, along with the calculated tactics of the NRA and the gun manufacturers to keep up the tension in order to sell more weapons and ammunition. Business, you know.
Yes, Mark, that is how they pronounce my name in Alabama, and usually with about three syllables. Just ask my in-laws. And Mike, try to remember that most of the NASA rockets and boosters were engineered in Alabama. That dumb southerner routine is wearing thin. They seem to be smart enough to have won the [...]
Or Jason Manson. Christensen packed up and left after losing the job. Neither of them were originally from Iowa, just as none of the three vying for the job now are. Everyone wants to play, but for three years we had the creepiest 1-2 comibination in college football. I mean: Tate-Manson? You could not make [...]
I could not be less concerned with whether we have night games or not. So it is a showcase. Great. If all you “showcase” is that you cannot make a first down against tall grass or contain a running quarterback to save your life, then you send a dubious message to the kids watching the [...]
Ease up, Sanji. We knew Ferentz wasn’t P.T. Barnum when we hired him, and we need to learn to live with the fact that we were not very good last year and look forward to better days. Besides, this is a story about basketball. I love it. We have a shooter coming in with Peter [...]
That’s a crying shame. For whatever reason, he will not be talked about in the future along with Gary Anderson, Morten Andersen, Jan Stenerud, Jason Elam and Adam Vinatieri,though he should. The guy had a short career. Nine years is a short career for a place-kicker, as weird as that sounds, but it is the [...]
Even if the Hawks went 10-2 in 2014 and there were no undefeated teams in the nation, even to the point of winning the league championship, the caliber of its non-conference foes over the past few years (UNI, Tennessee Tech, Missouri State, until recently Northern Illinois, who got a lot better FAST)would put us behind [...]
Since I am not optimistic enough to believe that we have three nascent Johnny Manziels fighting it out for the job, I am very much afraid that we have three mediocrities to choose from, at least until there is enough evidence from one of them to show otherwise. None of them were 4 or 5 [...]
He may be a closer with recruiters and parents, but he certainly was unable to lock down David Kenney, Delano Hill, David Barrent and other four-star athletes or better over the years. This is because a 7-5, 6-6, 4-8 ball team will not compete with the guys who go to the Rose Bowl or the [...]
Let me be the first to say it: Hold on to the ball, Keenan. That would be the first step to an NFL career. Too many Iowa receivers had dropsy last year, Davis included, even when Vandenberg did not throw it over their heads or at their feet. Good luck, Keenan.
