 Week 6: Rodents

As ESPN2 leaves the studio, they show us the equipment room in Iowa City, where Floyd is being loaded up into his travel crate.  If you listen closely, you could hear him say ‘please don’t let me stay 4 hours north of Iowa City in the wintertime.’

Sure enough, high 40s in the Twin Cities, but with a pretty calm breeze.  Perfect for football players, if not some of the fans.  

And then onto the field, where Iowa wins the toss, and defers - the booth points out that bucks the Hawkeye trend of taking the ball first.  Indeed it has.

The kick lands right at the goal line, and the return man brings it out to the 25.

Leidner starts with a very quick pass to the far side, his man is open right on the far sideline, the pass hits him in the hands, and he drops it.  2nd and 10.
