Week 3 Recap: Northern Iowa

Hello again, Hawkeye fans.  Hard to believe, but at about 3:15 this Saturday, the football season is one third over.  But as the Iowa game came to an end this past Saturday, we sat 50 days out from the return of Iowa Basketball.  And someday soon, we may have both Iowa Football and Basketball competing for B1G titles in the same school year.  Your scribe remembers when the Hawkeyes have done this in the past.  It makes for a one heck of a school year - be you in school, or an alumni.

It was another beautiful day in Kinnick as the Big Ten Network lead with video from, you guessed it, 2009.  This would not be as close as 09 - and we shall see if the Hawks take off from this game for a magical run as they did three seasons ago.

Another week, another old Hawkeye in the booth.  Danan Hughes, former Hawkeye wideout and baseball star, and contemporary of your scribe in Iowa City.  Me, a freshmen the fall of 1989, Danan’s redshirt freshmen season.  For his career, 146 catches, 2,216 yards, and 21 tds.  Hawkeye fans wonder if he spoke to the team about holding onto the ball.
