We all know what happened this season


I have been an avid BHGP reader since the middle of last summer (long time.. i know) and a Hawkeye fan as long as I can remember. I remember discovering BHGP the summer before this season and discussing the expectations for the year with everyone. Much of the conventional wisdom said that our season goes as the offensive line goes. We all know that for Iowa to be successful we need to run the ball well and with such a great stable of RB's it really came down to the O-Line. Certainly, if they jelled early and played even a decent season this would be a year where we could make a run at the big ten title and perhaps even a MNC. We did after all, have three running backs that each brought something different to the table and would be able to provide the essential running game we needed.

 

We all know that the story takes a dark turn from here. BW3 for reasons unknown to Hawkeye Nation (rumors set aside of course) does not report to camp. That's ok, is the general mindset of most fans, we still have two great running backs and some great recruits that should be able to handle spot duty in a crunch. Then the next turn, Jewell Hampton tears his other ACL to end his season after only a few carries. Now, we are down to one RB. ONE RB survives the first three weeks of the season and while he does an absolutely excellent job, the hits wear on him, and he is limited in the last quarter of the season with two concussions. The season ends as an inexperienced, though talented, freshman runner fumbles the game away to the Goofers. (Yes i am aware that Cokers fumble had little to do with the outcome of the game but it is a bit fitting that our 4'th string RB is expected to carry the final game isn't it?)

 

So what is it that caused this unfortunate turn of events. Those of you new to this community may answer with, well its just bad luck, or its a violent game.. injuries happen. You are wrong. It is the Angry Iowa Running Back Hating God (AIRBHG) that is responsible for the misfortunes of this season. The same that forced Sam Brownlee into service back in 2004 is still here picking on our talented group of ball carriers. He is a commie asshole who hates everything that is good in the world.

 

To add insult to injury while our RB's get hurt, Wisconsin's stable of backs goes nearly untouched for the season leading them to the type of season that we expected for ourselves. The type of season that we may have had if we had all of our RB's available. So what do we do about this problem you ask? How do we stop the AIRBHG? The FINAL SOLUTION after the jump

That's right.. TRICKERY ( no KOK.. not an end around ) .. we must convince AIRBHG that Madison is actually Iowa City and that he has been mistaken in hating on us nice Wisconsinians all these years. I suggest you forward this picture to all that you know in hopes that he will see it and unleash his wrath on the true assholes. Also, in order to help it seem more real you must all eat cheese like there is no tomorrow and drink like a fish.. that my friends is a sacrifice I am willing to make.
