Week 5 Recap: Minnesota

Well Hawkeye friends, that was a lot better, wasn’t it?  Floyd is back where he belongs, and the Hawks were able to go from the win into the bye week.  When we emerge, we will have injured players back,  an extra week of Spartan scouting, and a plan to move to 2-0 in the BIg Ten.  More about that, later.

The Deuce leads off telling us that the Rodents are on the rise and the Hawks are not.  The first shot - wait for it - no, it’s not a cornfield! It’s some Iowa trees in pretty fall colors.  

It’s game #200 for Ferentz, as the Rodent kicker lines up to boot the ball to the Hawks.  It comes down at the midpoint of the end zone, where Cotton makes the catch and takes a knee.  

Everywhere, Hawkeye fans are hoping for the quick start.
