Week 13: Michigan

As soon as your scribe got the Notes sent out last week, he had to pack - for a very chilly weekend in Iowa City.

Ok, living on the east coast all these years has made me kind of soft.  It would be cold, very cold in Kinnick.

So cold, in fact, that as far as anyone can tell, the coldest Iowa home football game - ever.

So I had to pack all the heaviest black gear I had, which fortunately, meant a lot of cold weather Iowa gear.  Emboldened by my middle Iowa upbringing, I agreed to start the tailgating at 8:00 am - 3 hours before kickoff.   

I think I spent about 2 of those hours warming up in our ever-running van.  

Anyway, we made our way into the stadium (the club seats - outdoor, yes, but out of the wind, and we can go inside the press box whenever we want), a few minutes before kickoff, just in time to take off our hats for the national anthem.  Brrrrr….

And now the captains are at midfield, and the Hawks have again won the toss - and deferred.  Either Kirk is open to trying new things - or the players brains were frozen and they answered the question incorrectly.
