Oklahoma becomes third No. 1 to lose in Iowa this year

Tuesday, January 19th, 2016

Beware, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton -- the state of Iowa is no place for frontrunners this year. With Iowa State's 82-77 win over No. 1 Oklahoma Monday night, the Hawkeye State has improbably seen three of its four Division I universities knock off the top team in college basketball this ...

Iowa Hawkeyes: Kirk Ferentz’s seat is rapidly warming

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

It turns out the Indiana-Iowa clash this Saturday might actually be a meaningful football game in several ways. Kirk Ferentz's Hawkeyes are a very mediocre 4-4 on the season, and a loss to Indiana would all but end Iowa's shot at bowl eligibility. The Hawkeyes would need to win two ...

What I'm watching: 12 pm: Flipping between Nebraska/Penn State for the train-wreck-watching and Okie State/Texas Tech for the O-fence. 3:30 pm: TCU/Boise State - At least, until Boise pulls away.

McD’s Week Eight College Football Picks

Friday, October 21st, 2011

The only picks by an actual Indiana grad who prefers Indiana football to Indiana basketball. It's an acquired taste. What I'm watching this week (with my dad edition): 12 pm - Indiana at Iowa - I guess so my Hawkeye-fan dad can watch with me and make snarky comments the whole time. ...

Week Three College Football Roundup

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

College football in the state of Indiana is just fine, thank you. You can shut up if you're about to say that Notre Dame, Indiana, and Purdue only beat one FBS team between them on Saturday. They're still 3-0 on the weekend, f**kers. And yes, I went back on my word ...
