An Iowa team beating a Nebraska team on a walkoff? Seems familiar...

To be fair, VG is pretty reasonable and I think he wasn’t being literal. Just stating that it must be done.

I wasn't trying to single him out in particular, really, but this sentiment has come up in almost every Gustafson post this season.

Her number should already be in the rafters.  

Honestly, I really don't get the obsession with this. There's been a rush to memorialize things by calling for Iowa to retire her number before her season (and career) was even over. She had an utterly incomparable career at Iowa and I think it is very, very, very likely that the athletic department will do things to celebrate and honor that (likely including the retirement of her number), but I don't get the need to rush to the finish. The idea that you would retire her number while she's continuing to play in it is just incredibly strange and has no precedent that I can recall.

I still think he's gone, but I suppose we'll have to wait a bit for it to be officially official.

Prior to yesterday's game, Connor (not Patrick) was hitting .320 with a .400 slugging percentage and a .433 OBP. 

Obviously there's a small sample size at play there, though -- he'd only appeared in 9 games and had 25 at-bats (30 total plate appearances) when those stats were tabulated.
