    The Big 10 Network had this on their Face Book page. If you could have any two Big 10 coaches over for dinner, who would you invite, why and what would you ask them? Since we are Iowa fans, let's leave Kirk out, that is too easy. I would go with Pat Fitzgerald because I would be interested in hearing about his playing days and if he really holds a grudge towards Iowa for getting his leg broken against us. I would also have Lovie Smith over because I am a Bears fan and would like to know what it was like to coach the Bears and if he is happy at the college level. I would like Harbaugh over to eat, but would be afraid that he would want to sleep over.

    Scott Frost. I would ask him how much more he loves living in the past vs living in the present and looking forward to the future.

    James Franklin: How much do you love coaching for a program that has a tarnished reputation for what it did to a number of children through the Paterno/Sandusky years? Does it make you squirm even a little?

    Scott Frost / Tom Allen: I seat them next to one another and I talk to Tom Allen throughout the whole meal about the nice season they had and the unlikely turnaround he's pulling off at IU. At the end of the meal I ask Scott Frost if he has any questions for Tom.

    Fleck would give you a motivational speech as to how to eat your meal

    Jeff Brahm.

    They did one of those anonymous interviews of Big Ten coaches in the pre-season, and one of the coaches was quoted as saying Iowa's defense is very predictable and all you have to do is find a weak spot and exploit it. And I was trying to guess who said that. I bet it was Jeff Brahm.

    So I would like to ask him if he said that. But even if he didn't say it, How does he keep finding ways to score TD's on Iowa's defense.

    Other guy is Ryan Day. I would like to find out the real reason OSU got blown out by Iowa in 2017. Also how do they score so much against such elite defenses.

    Of course a laptop and projector would be required for this dinner.

    Chryst and Fitz.

    Maybe Day or Lovie.

    Everyone else really are an unlikable bunch.

    Hosting a Holiday Party soon so I would go with Lovie Smith if he would dress up as Santa Claus and Dantonio if he would come as the Grinch. If I could add a 3rd it would be PJ dressed as an elf.

    Not a lot to choose from.

    Tom Allen is a lock. He looks like a straight shootin dude. He wears his emotions on his sleeve, and he's got something going over there, though Indiana did draw an easy crossover this year.

    Paul Chryst is a sentimental choice. We could swap stories of trying to sneak into Platteville saloons with fake ID's.

    That's not as far fetched as it sounds. I went to college with guys who would commute from Davenport, Clinton, Iowa City and Cedar Rapids after school on a Friday afternoon all the way into Wisconsin where the legal drinking age was 18. They would take their beer back into Iowa and party it up.

    Be careful inviting Frost over. He’d break stuff in your house then turn around and blame you for it.

    If I'm on a diet, I'd go with Harbaugh in a heartbeat.

    I'd be too nauseated to eat anything, and too tempted to keep making a bunch of noise so he'd feel the need to whine to someone that no one can hear him....

    BF and I would ask him if he agrees that nepotism is ok?

    Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler. I'll admit, it would be quieter than usual, but neither one have been in my kitchen.

    In all seriousness, Mark Dantonio and Jim Harbaugh. Clownkilla, can I borrow your shovel?

    Fleck and Dantonio so I can punch both of them in the face. One for being a clown and the other for being a shitty human.
