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.  We will not always have Hawkeye audio on the restaurant side.

PLEASE NOTE – Blondies opens at 11:30 – do not expect to be let into the bar before then!  If you a couple of us in there earlier it’s so we can hang up the flags before the bar fills up.

Last Week: Northwestern
All right, if you watched that debacle I guess you don’t really need me to recap it for you.  To remind you that the worst offense in the Big Ten rolled up 445 yards to our 266.  Converted 3rd downs at 61%, about 30 points higher than they average this season. Rushed for 225 yards, on our defense, on our home field.  That same defense never really got close enough to the Northwestern QB to spit on him, let alone tackle him.  Would not matter much if Mertan Hanks and Bob Sanders were our safeties; with that much time any QB looks good.  You probably wanted to forget about the 14-point swing due to the two Tate turnovers – the interception at the goal line, and fumble at our 6 that resulted in the second Wildcat touchdown.  The offense was lethargic, the defense two steps too slow, and the special teams – well, there were no missed field goals.  This was a team loss.  Out played, out worked, and maybe just maybe even out coached for stretches.
