Let the Tailgating Begin, Part 1 Kickoff for Iowa-Iowa State has been set for 11:00, making it the first officially scheduled day game of the 2009 season. More importantly for those of us who don't want to buy Iowa State season tickets for a chance at seeing one game, it will be televised on Fox Sports Net. That's great news for you poor bastards who don't have the Big Ten Network. Speaking of which...
Let the Tailgating Begin, Part 2 If you think I'm not getting up early to drink for this, you clearly haven't been reading this blog: The BTN is replaying the 2008 Iowa-Minnesota game at 11:00 AM on Saturday, June 13. For those of you who have conveniently forgotten the outcome, that's the game Iowa won 55-0. I'm going to drink my weight in beer, chase it with some absinthe, watch Shonn Greene run people over, then scream, "Who hates Iowa now, bitches?" at any maroon-clad mustachioed slob who comes within 10 feet of me. It's like November never ended.

Etc. Looks like Tyler Smith is leaving Knoxville for a more Mediterranean climate. Todd Lickliter's house is for sale (and a bargain at $1.1M). Former UM point guard Kelvin Grady, who has exhausted his basketball eligibility, joins the football team. Wait, what are you doing reading this? Go Get Your Basketball On!
