    As long as we don't lose in those ridiculous unis we're ok. Getting beat 54-6 is bad enough but to do it wearing those pajama outfits is more than I can take.

    Haven't we won the last two times we had alts?

    Ohio State were the ugly grey ones, and Minnesota was the blacked out "color rush" style ones with no white I think.

    btw, those Minnesota black outs are the best looking uniforms and Iowa team has ever worn. I wouldn't mind a bit if they went that way permanently.

    In a game vs Penn St, you could not pick a better honorary captain.

    Check that, they could have picked Sara Ganim. She would have been a better choice but Rick will do great in the roll.

    They need to play the Hulk Hogan song/video, "Real American" when they intro Ricky.

    But, PSU has beaten the Hawks 5 straight, KF has never beaten non-paterno PSU.

    Which streak ends?

    Probably my favorite post-Long QB.

    A warrior. A leader. A winner.

    We need that on the field Saturday from our QB.

    He got hurt on a play that I've always hated. Iowa still runs it, but not as often. The QB turns and fakes a hand-off, then does a slight roll out before turning around. It was a staple of KOK's offense.

    What I hate about that play is that the QB has his back to the defense for a good portion of the clock. By the time he turns around, a defensive player could be right in his face (as was the case here). Very little time to scan the field and make a decision. Stanzi had no chance there, and the judgement to call that play in your own end zone was questionable at best.

    Iowa does run a new "pop play" in which the QB has to turn and face the defense, but it's a very quick play that doesn't give the defense time to get much penetration. That makes much more sense. New England runs it frequently with Brady.

    Oh great.

    We know Iowa is a streak-breaker and never in the good sense.
