Chaos Reigns during Beer Week

Ranked teams were falling like leaves in October last week.  And with Iowa idle, the Guys had nothing better to do than pour a few craft beers and enjoy the carnage.  Will Iowa emerge from the bye with a renewed offense or SSDD?  And we go on location to @GreatRiverBrew in Davenport to learn more about the local scene.


The Ballad of Ricky Beatherd

Iowa gets a new look at QB and the season gets a new lease on life.  The guys discuss the win at Pitt, Kirk’s QB dilemma, and the opening of conference play.

Same S***, Different Game.

The guys react to Lil’ Brother’s victory on Saturday, and discuss the pile of dung & cash better known as the Big Ten Conference.  Our guest is a veteran sports reporter that always holds coaches accountable.

Ow my Ball State!

The best thing about last week:  Iowa won. And the game-winning drive didn’t stall outside of field goal range, like say, the 10 yard line.  The guys break down the ugliest of ugly wins, wonder if the Tuesday News Gremlin is stealing Tory’s thunder, and look ahead to a visit from the Cyclones.

S3E2: UNI = Check. On to Ball State.

The Guys are Happy about the win, and looking forward to taking on Ball St.  Week 1 impressions of Iowa, the B1G, and ISU.  Our guest is Scott Dochterman, who tells his Tavian Banks story.
