Iowa’s Rankings
AP: Maybe next year.
USA Today: Nope.
ESPN Power 16: Thankfully we are not in the Bottom 10 anymore.
ESPNU Allstate: They probably don’t like us cause of the Coralville Geico call center.
HARRIS: No, but I’m sure they have some other polls that rank Iowa highly.
BCS: At least we did not finish 11-1 and get screwed knowing we were not going to get killed by the Buckeyes like the Gators will be.

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 Month: Minnesota
As it has been one calendar month + since this game occurred, and I have run out of ways to describe (and keep this rated PG) how the Hawks lost yet again, I will just say this.  In the spirit of giving that we now find ourselves in, remember that the Hawkeyes gave the Gopher seniors their one and only win against Iowa, just as we had done to the Badger seniors the week before.  While it is nice to give, it is better to receive, at least when it comes to wins, so let’s hope the Hawkeye charity has come to an end with the 2006 regular season.
