Game Watch: ‘The Best Game Watch Outside Of Kinnick.’
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: Indiana
Well – that was a rather perplexing game.  If anyone were to look at the stats without knowing the score, they would be sure that the Hoosiers came out of Kinnick with a rather easy win. Fortunately, it’s the points that count in the end.  Witness: more first downs than Iowa, 25-19. Time of possession – Hoosiers 40:09, Iowa 19:51.  Total offense –Hawks 425, Hoosiers 446.  Heck, their QB even set a Kinnick stadium record for pass completions with 37.  Why?  Say it with me now – not enough up front pressure. At least the offense did make the most out of their limited chances.  When the Hoosiers closed to 24-21 early in the 4th, the Hawks moved the ball down the field efficiently to put the game away with two rushing touchdowns.  In the end, the Kinnick stadium winning streak sits at 22 straight, and into town rolls our good friends from Ann Arbor.
