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.

Episode 2.11: Last Act
