Ugly win. We’ll take it!

Hawks eek out a victory in a slugfest in Madison.  Can the offense get healthy vs. Illinois?  Which teams are the biggest surprise in the league, and which is the biggest flop (Spoiler:  Rhymes with “Schmerschmaska”).  Our impromptu guest is a Hawkeye Pessimist who has come back to eat crow sushi.

Are the 2015 Hawks For Real?

We debate the relative merits of South Park, Karate Kid, and vintage Coke commercials.  Iowa notches a perfect non-conference record, capped by dismantling North Texas, but will Bucky spoil the party next week?  Our Guest is Steve Batterson from the Quad City Times.

Ultra Excitement

Being on the winning side of an amazing, improbable, last-second field goal sure beats the alternative.  We examine the atmosphere in the victory over Pitt, look ahead to some homecomings for North Texas, and chat with an ultra long-distance guest.

Turning a Corner?

For 30 minutes, it looked like the same old story vs. Little Brother.  But then, something changed.  CJ, Vandenberg and Canzeri combined for 3 second half TDs, and the Ott-less defense pulled the plug on ISU.  The guys discuss the satisfying result, and visit with a former player, coach and reality TV star.

Back…and Less Worse Than Ever!

Another Iowa Football season is upon us, and the fanbase has spoken with one unified voice:  “Meh.”   Is an under-the-radar surprise season in the works?  Or will Ferentz & Co. once again fail to live up to lowered expectations?  What do you need to see to get back on the bandwagon?

Slow Motion Meltdown

Want to hear our thoughts on Kirk Ferentz and the state of Iowa Football?  Maybe not, but how about @marcmorhouse?  He’s our guest on this SUPER SIZED podcast, and we talk coaching, “that’s football,” and look ahead to 2015.

Bye, Floyd

A group of kittens dressed in Iowa football uniforms were blown off the field Saturday, sending Floyd to Exile in his Northern Gulag.  Our extended guest is Tom Kakert (@HawkeyeReport), who critiques the game (bad) and program (in question).
