WEEK 1: Northern Illinois

This week, Sedge’s Game Notes are brought to you by the Iowa Soybean Association!

Actually, that would be the game is brought to you by them.  I always liked Corn better (week 2 sponsor).

As we begin the 2018 Notes, the Hawkeyes are nearly done with the 2nd week of fall camp, and with just two weeks left until Swarm 2018 takes the field.  Yeah, it’s 91 out there right now, but soon enough it will feel like football season.
