If we thought otherwise, we may as well move to Indiana, because they seem to be so far ahead of us in cutting edge open mindedness. Because the football hasn't been fun, evidenced by losses to both Wisconsin and Nebraska, both of whom we had beat. With respect to my team, it appears they outperform this year. No war on women, but seems to be a war on college football. I was a bit embarrassed, but looking back it now makes me laffy out loud. The Illini interim head coach deserves to be hired full time after this season.
But this year, like many years, and based on recruiting classes coming in, we're waiting. But even if we do, I'd still think 2-3 season from today is when we'll be back to T10 finishes again. I understand a couple of teams aren't doing so well, but you would think some Illinois or Indiana fans would be interested. Lots of stuff to do on Saturdays outside of college football. Text me right away on my Obama phone, provided in 1985 from Ronald Reagan, who of course was fat and accompanied by bartered girlfriends to a strip club outing in Central Illinois, where rooms were expensive because the Might Iowa Hawkeyes were in town. Magnificent in the catch, the one catch no one seems to understand, catch 22. Not a good time to be looking for a new head coach given all the great job openings coming up soon.
While there is no required dues to use the site we do appreciate donations to help pay the bills.
We're half a decade away from that at best right now. Others, understanding the most important role of University Presidents understand the Governor's office controls the State Board of Regents. I do wish him well in Michigan, but I feel his personality will follow him there. He played his best ball when we were significantly behind and there was nothing to loose. At Wisconsin, one of the guys that I went with didn't like the vibe. I think what I saw was a decision to work on pass defense. Because I suspect we could have ran 350 yards on them, and yet? I think what I saw yesterday was a game speed scrimmage where we were working on pass defense, and our passing game. Our problem with the passing game was Bethard's altered mechanics due to his injury. I sense fans are still pissed as we haven't sold out anything since last year's debacle. But for the most part, every season there are about 15 predictable teams that shouldn't surprise anyone from the P5 conferences. That would be an easier round to the championship game. Because we are Iowa, and we don't live in a fantasy world or try to pretty things up. Where they could have, and should have, under Ko K, or anyone with a brain. Because it is what we live with every year around here. That maturation combined with his natural strength is why he became the starter now. Pre med reject QB seems to be doing fine at Meechegan. So we're sitting in the Wiscy donor section that is also full of academics. My friend Mike stands up and yells, "Impose your will on these people" We all just looked at him, as did several academics sitting in our area. How bad was their drunken mess earlier this year to not be able to win with what he had on the field? Several will always be in or close, the rest will rotate in and out in any given season. We understand higher education is running a teaching hospital and football team. But never under the ignorant Texan's thought processes. And lost to almost everyone else, including our head scratching annual early season annual loss or losses to either the worst D1 program, or to a D2 program. Things progressing along in their slow and frustrating way. KF goes for it on 4th down deep in their own territory. I'm pretty sure they got the message he was giving. A team that still has 4-5 star recruits, and hiring a West Coast guy that can't win with 4-5 star recruits. If Indiana beats Iowa next week, I wouldn't be one bit surprised. For current donating members we appreciate your past and continued support of GBN. The past few months have been VERY lean for donations and while the bills have been paid it has not been easy. Now that you brought this up, I see they're letting the bands on the field as well. I know "non-players" are usually allowed on the sidelines prior to or after the game.
