Clinton, IA born and Cedar Rapids, IA raised. Son of a Badger, but don't hold that against me. Late 80s/Early 90s Iowa fandom was a good time. Eventually got all my degrees from Iowa.

I was a Hawk fan waaaaay before I was an Iowa grad, and that was because of two people: Coach Fry and Coach Davis.  Both taught the lesson that work ethic and hustle could win out over star power.  I never met either, but both impacted my life in ways they'll never know.

Man, I hope Dr. Tom isn't going anywhere for a long while.

Fant is psychically ready to be an NFL player and his only weaknesses (if there are any) could be improved through coaching.

Jeez, I'd completely forgotten about the creepy groper guy who was employed for 10 years, and the bungled track coaching search.  In most people's careers, those would be existential crises; in this roundup they are afterthoughts.

A-ha, now I'm sensing your sarcasm!

Your serious comments are always intelligent and persuasive

My M.O. is usually to drop in a smart-alecky comment here or there and then go back to lurking so people who want to have a serious conversation can.  I haven't even shown up to do much of that lately, but then the basketball team got good again which got me all excited, and then...all this happened.  This is why we can't have nice things, Garys!

Let's just beat the hell out of Wisconsin tomorrow and let everything else take care of itself.

Okay, sure, it looks bad if you document everything, but you omitted that he also hired Heller and that has worked out pretty well.  So, uh, checkmate.

I'm pretty sure Beathard to Smith was the loudest sports moment I've ever been a part of, it was just absolute pandemonium.  We striped the stands at a neutral site!  And as stingy as our defense had been playing, I was sure we were winning that game...
