Week 9: Maryland

As we leave the ABC booth (and then a few commercials), we see a shot of the new (as of the remodel) Hawkeye press box.  What a facility it is, I got to attend a wedding reception there back during the rout of the Rodents to close out the Metrodome in 2008.  A great place for a party, if you plan on having one in Iowa City.

And then to the stands, where we see a horse, a Chewbacca, and many other Hawkeye fans dressed for the Halloween festivities.  

The booth talks about Iowa’s strength of schedule to that point (6th, nationally), and points out the thing we keep hearing about the games of the last month.  Of course, there are no givens in the Big Ten, as Iowa fans have learned over the years.

We then meet Maryland’s interim coach, he has been with the program for quite a while, and maybe is a candidate to become the new actual coach, if the Terps can finish November with some wins.
