BLONDIES SPORTS 212 West 79th, (Broadway/Amsterdam).
1 train to 79th street, half a block east.  Several parking garages are nearby.
NOTE: If sitting on bar stools/standing for 3 hours is not ideal for you, we will be reserving a couple tables on the restaurant side of Blondies.  I cannot guarantee that you will have Iowa audio on that side, however - especially once the Big 10 season starts.

Last Week: Northern Iowa
All right – it seems there has been a little too much moaning going on over the Hawks 45-21 victory over the Panthers – which netted a school record 20 game home winning streak, 3rd best in Division 1.  When the starting offense left after the 3rd quarter, it was 38-7 Hawks – and could have been more, but we reigned in the offense after halftime.  Yes, the two blown coverages for tds in the 4th quarter were painful to see – but they occurred with the game in hand, and we knew going in the Panthers did have a very legit passing attack.  Of note, Tate was 15-18 for 247 and 2 tds, Albert Young now averages 8.3 yards per carry, and there were no turnovers (just as after the 5 turnover game last year) or offensive penalties.  We do need more pressure up front from the d-line – Greenway had 20 tackles last week, which is great, but too many for a linebacker.  But those guys are now a quarter of the way through their first starting season, so look for rapid improvement from week to week. This would be a good week to start getting into the backfield – as we have an ass whoopin’ we need to follow up on.
