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.

 Last Week: Minnesota
Well now that I have had to time to think about it, this game had to rank as one of the most satisfying Hawkeye wins we have seen in a while.  Sure, not the thrilling excitement of the Penn State game, or Iowa/LSU, etc, but extremely gratifying nonetheless.

The 55-0 beat down was the 2nd worst loss the Gophers have ever endured, and in fact the single worst to a Big Ten opponent.  That closed the 27-year history of the Metrodome with an Iowa record of 8 up and 6 down.  Forever enshrining it as Kinnick North/Indoor.
