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.
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.
Hawks come up short in a bid to upset Wisconsin. Former Hawkeye and current Philadelphia center Julian Vandervelde joins to discuss the NFL, Nebraska, and Quad City-style Pizza.
Did the Hawks right the ship, or was it simply a case of “Playing Illinois”? League-leading Wisconsin comest to town, and we’ve got 408 problems, (but Stave ain’t one).
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.
