After a week off, here’s a Very Special Thanksgiving episode! Iowa is back on the right side of the W/L column, and Bladel is back on the right side of the Equator. Our expert is a professional poker player who employs a Ferentz-style analytical approach to her art. And with one game remaining, we recap the chilly win in Kinnick and look ahead to kNebraksa.
Iowa secures a post-season by beating up on a hapless Purdue squad, featuring Canzeri and Schumpert (yeah, really). Our guest is an Iowa Wrestling Celebrity, who matriculated under an Iowa Wrestling Legend: Gable himself. And we take a week off of our own…but not before looking ahead to Michigan and kNebraska.
The Hawkeyes were out-physicalled in a home loss to Wisconsin, mostly due to an offense that has gone AWOL. Our guest is a DC journalist who lives at the epicenter of the political landscape. And we look ahead to the last three games for bowl eligibility, starting with Purdue.
Apathy or patient acceptance? Evaluating post-Badger loss feelings. Come climb on the sport psychologist’s couch with me:
Iowa likely ended NW’s hopes for a post-season, and significantly raised their own. The guys discuss the Overtime win over NW, and how it could be an inflection point for a turnaround season. Our expert is part of a nationwide network to rescue and foster dogs in trouble. We identify a few disturbing trends on offense, and look ahead to Saturday’s match-up against the Batchers.
