What are they gonna do with all the Row The Boat gear they have in the bookstore. Probably throw in on the boat above, would be my guess. And where will Row the Boat resurface next?

Also, you think "Is Pepsi Ok?" is hell?

Clearly you've never been a place where they asked that about RC.  Da fuq?

Here, here! Well done!

Still not sure why Vegas has Iowa by 10.5. Something about a bunch of numbers on both sides of the ball. I look at the win column, and, well, damn, maybe jNW can be beat. Should be a good, ice-cold show. I'll be there. And Sparty should be able to win, too.

Bert! Pass me my bacon!

Yes...there are a bunch of advanced stats that give Iowa the edge...but that's the thing when we play NW, Pat Fitzgerald is a master of finding a way to win.  I seem to remember 2016 being kinda similar to this year with NW coming to Kinnick to play.  They just found something to exploit (I remember pass protection being a huge problem for us that day) and beat us in a very frustrating fashion.

Yea, I've given up expecting wins against NW, even though on paper we should usually beat them. Fitz is a perfect coach for NW and is right where he needs to be. He makes great money ($3.3mil/yr), likes the school (even though basically none of the students or the administration gives a shit about football), and has bulletproof job security (currently on a 10 year contract that runs until 2026). If he went to another school in a different football and academics situation, he wouldn't know what to do with himself.

Extremely well said, couldn't agree more.
