From what I've read, it's likely that Brents will be on board soon.  I think the Bussell ship has sailed to Tennessee.  D.J. is a great get for the good guys!

Not terribly surprised that the Hawks aren't in the top 25.  Rather surprised that they didn't garner a single vote...   Or to look at it a bit differently, one less vote than SMU....   Young team,  very athletic team, no question.   Now let's go ahead and put that chip on their shoulders.  I believe that Fran is going to have a pretty decent product on the floor and the Hawks will be more than capable of surprising many unwary teams!  #GoIowaAwesome!

Just stop scheduling the lose / lose situation....   Nothing good comes of this mess...   There is no good outcome...  Still pissed....  Still annoyed.  They quit in the fourth quarter and just got beat....   40 years following the Hawks and this is the most disappointing and annoying game...    Poor preparation...   Poor execution...  Poor coaching...  Way too conservative the last time they had the balll..   playing not to lose never works...   NDSU played to win and they did...  Most annoying

Is there any thought out there on Chaz Ah You, other than the impending mission?  It seems like a stretch to pry him out of Utah but that is based only on history and logistics, rather than knowledge.  Does anybody have a thought as to whether or not the Hawks have a legitimate shot with him?

It sure does!

Comment 15 Sep 2016

Regardless of who it is, keeping in mind that caring IS creepy.  Eno just makes the whole process fun!  Looking forward to his Hawkeye football career, as clearly his other hawkeye career has already begun!   Cheers, y'all!

Before I even saw the picture, i was thinking fez but the crown is really the right call! 

Comment 16 Aug 2016

In 2015, the Hawks apparently passed on Trevor Ruhland, a 3 - 4 star legacy OG that really wanted to go to Iowa. He ended up at Notre Dame...   His dad Matt was a total monster.

I'll have to keep an eye out for both of those!  I have a barrel aged Dragon's Millk waiting for me tonight.  Migtht not be the right time of  year for that, but then again I like gin and tonic in February.  :-)

Still remember the monster block in the ISU game.   Didn't think that dude was going to get up.  The biggest block I have ever seen, live, in person.

Comment 04 Aug 2016

Hopefully things go better than the last time Iowa was ranked in the preseason polls (2010)  That season was a serious letdown.  As for the position, I think 15 is fairish.  Iowa plays well with a chip on it's shoulder, this could be seen as a little bit of a chip.  Go Iowa Awesome and kick some ass!

When he was still at Wisky, i always thought that he should be held down and have the tigerhawk tat forcibly removed with a cheese grater.   poetic justice and high pain infliction.

Haven't seen much Schlafly around here.  Have enjoyed quite a few 4Hands offerings, particularly like the War Hammer Imperial IPA.

Been spending a lot of time with Psuedo Sue this Summer.  Also enjoying TG Zeelander and Apricot Tree Shaker from O'Dells.

Westmalle or the very difficult to source Westvleteren?  Only had the latter once, somebody has to physically go there.

Comment 03 Aug 2016

I am and have always been eledmonster.  Although i have now posted more on GIO than on all other sites combined.  I was a bit late gettting to BHGP but enjoyed while it lasted.  Was in IC from the late 80's to the early 90's.  Ran Fries (RIP) in 1994 then moved to Texas.  Went to my frist Iowa game in '76..  Saw some neet things, although mostly bad until Hayden showed up.  There was a great goal line stand against tOSU.  Hawks got slaughtered but the stand was great and Woody blew a gasket.  More than worth the price of admission.

Cheers to all!  Let's have some fun!
