Week 1: Illinois State

As I sat down to begin the Notes on Tuesday evening, word had broken that back in Iowa, we had lost #9, Tyler Sash, at the age of 27.  No word yet tonight on what happened, and the autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday morning.  All of Hawkeye Nation is in mourning tonight, so instead of recapping a game against an FCS opponent that was never in doubt, below are some highlight videos of Tyler playing for the Hawkeyes.
