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.

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).

Set Wayback Machine to “Blowout”

Like a blast from seasons past, Iowa had its way with Northwestern, setting up a crucial four-week series to decide the Champions of the West.  Was this enough to pacify an unruly fan base?  And will Floyd stay home for another year?

The Trouble with Turtles.

Reactions to the bumbling loss at Maryland, and back-sliding in to the middle of the pack.  What does Iowa need to fix in the bye to make a run in the West?  Last episode until post-Northwestern.
