2013 Outlook:

Fifth.  Or Sixth.

In the Division.

That’s the Legends division.  But only for one more year.

So the players toil away in the hot summer sun, consigned to their fate that once again, Iowa fans will be finding solace in hoops season intersecting the end of the football season.

Maybe.
