It is finally week 1 of the Big Ten football season and Drake and Kevin rejoin Tyler after an episode hiatus to talk all things Iowa vs. Purdue. We answer a few fan questions, the boys give their short thoughts on the lawsuit, and of course we give out picks of the week.
2020 continues to 2020. Topics discussed are the Saturday College slate, the Ravens making us look dumb as hell, Jeff Brohm having COVID and how that affects week 1 for the Hawks, and 8 of our former teammates trying to Cash in and retire in the Bahamas. Its a fun time.
We open up this conversation with talk about how the NCAA voted to pause eligibility for all athletes resulting in essentially a 'Free' year. This means that athletes like Alaric Jackson, Luka Garza, Jordan Bohannon, and Spencer Lee could all come back for the 21-22 athletic season. We discuss what that might look like and how it may affect scholarships. Then we get into some talk about Iowa State and how they are potentially the front runner for the Big 12 Championship at the moment and what the conference outlook is as a whole. We talk shortly about the 3 announced Iowa Football game times that were released and finish the conversation with Wards Winners.
Friend of the show Josey Jewell joins this episode as he comes off the best performance of his NFL career. He talks all about his Thursday night game against the Jets. We talk comparisons on what it means to him playing the game as an occupation vs when he played in college and the motivation behind all of that. We discuss his hit stick moment against Derrick Henry and how he is starting to find his way in the league as well as his thoughts on if the NFL season hangs in the balance due to COVID breakouts of late. We talk about his most recent entrepreneurial venture in his home town of Decorah, Iowa and much more.

We finish the episode by talking the upcoming week in College and Pro football and give you our betting picks!
Today we jump on to talk the weekend of college football and how Oklahoma is the worst tackling team in the country. Iowa state was able to get the win over the sooners to improve to 2-1. Texas TCU Over was never a doubt and the rest of the college slate sucked. The Big Ten season creeps closer and closer. We talk about if Nile Kinnick would start for todays Hawkeyes as well as how COVID found its way into more NFL organizations this week, and we finish by ranking all 8 of Iowa's opponents this season on 'Big Game' potential.
This episode is just a Thursday catchup jumble. We have a scatter discussion that ranged from the political debate to the Chiefs v Ravens game(Including Mahomes becoming a father).

We also have a small discussion on what concerns there may be relative to the Hawks opener against the Boilermakers.
We break down everything that happened in college football over the weekend including 2 Top 10 teams falling as Oklahoma and LSU both got beat in their home stadiums.

Several days after a schedule was released that included 8 game regular season with a post season game for all 14 games crossing over to play the same seed in the opposite division in the middle of December. We talk about what all of this means and more!

Some nerdy special teams talk gets mixed in as well as looking back on living out the Iowa kids dream.
Kevin and Tyler talk Drakes twitter drama and then move on to all things football. The college world opened up for the most part with plenty of drama in Week 1. Most relevant cross state rival ISU looked lack luster at best in their home opening loss to Louisiana. We discuss if Brock Purdy are contenders or pretenders. We talk the latest news that the Big Ten is close to figuring out a way back on the field, and most importantly, what does that look like for a program logistically to be game ready. Finally we take a look at the NFL slate and talk about how the world feels a little more right with FOOTBALL.

After 3 years of grinding and not a lot of movement on the depth chart Reid tried his hand at Long Snapping in the spring of 15' before deciding to transfer that summer. He transferred to Southern Illinois and found success in the stacked Missouri Valley conference for his final 2 years.

I have lived in Oregon for the last 7 years. A few years ago when Nebraska came out here to play the ducks in football I was having a cocktail at my local haunt. I look down the bar and on the Friday before the game there are roughly five Husker fans all in red shirts at the end of the bar enjoying drinks just as Hawk fans might do while they are out of of them however was wearing a Idiots Out Wandering Around shirt all in red. I sent him what he was drinking from the bartender. As he looked around to see who sent it I approached and informed him that I bet on my Hawks the last five years during the "farmegeddon game" and that until Tom Osborne returns to Lincoln it'll always be a safe bet. His friends laughed, I gave him a hug and our discussion about our love for the Midwest started and was followed by many shots. In short I'm torn. They are the team we were before Hayden Fry. I hate and love their fan base simultaneously.
