Thank You Penn State!

When the 2008 Iowa football team needed to make a statement, you were there for them to beat.

When the 2008-09 Iowa basketball team needed to demonstrate improvement by playing the spoiler to someone's NCAA Tournament hopes, you were there for them to beat.

When the 2009 Iowa football team needed to start strong and show their power, you were there for them to beat.

Eric May brushes away Iowa's version of the Washington Generals.

And now, when the 2009-10 Iowa basketball team - the Hawkeyes' worst squad in my lifetime - needed to find someone to defeat to avoid going 0-18 in the Big Ten, you were there for them to beat.

Thank you, Penn State.  Iowa is officially glad that you're in the Big Ten.
