The Eternal Iowa Hawkeyes Football Question: Eight Wins Or Nine?

Stick around to discuss where Fran goes from here

Whoops, I almost forgot to put up the podcast article

Probably because...I mean...what do you say about Iowa football? They’re gonna win 8.5 games.

So what questions can we even ask?

  • Have they ever seemed so shaky at quarterback? They haven’t been EXCEPTIONAL, but they’ve always had starters that instilled confidence. How about now?
  • We didn’t actually discuss AIRBHG, but has his/her/its/xzir bloodlust been satisfied at long last?
  • How long can Matt Campbell keep losing El Assico!?
  • What do you do with Fran McCaffery after departing the Luka Garza era without a single team banner to hang?

I’d like to actually elaborate on that AIRBHG point. Goodson is perhaps the most hyped Iowa back since Shonn Greene, but that’s not saying much. What happened here? Did Kirk finally realize that AIRBHG was offended by ostentatious recruiting at the position and opt to instead develop less heralded prospects to defy AIRBHG’s senses? Or has AIRBHG finally achieved satisfaction, much like the Purdue ACL Devourer? Discuss in the comments.

Of course, Iowa fans must always respect AIRBHG lest he/she/it/xzie read this comment section and become enraged at the very question, but for the rest of us? An interesting point.
