The Aughts in Review: Wildcat Scratch Fever

Continuing our look back at the decade that was in Iowa football, celebrating the highs and the lows -- and, hopefully, distracting us from the ongoing disaster that is Iowa basketball.  This series looks back at Iowa's results across the entire decade against every Big Ten foe, as well as Iowa State.  According to the alphabet, next up is just Northwestern -- now in haiku form, because that's all they deserve.

Cuntbag?  Cuntbag.

Fitz is raging douche,
still no bowl wins in decades,
still no fans at Ryan.

jNWU fans: too busy ruling the world being assholes in Armani to watch alma mater play football.

'Cats like purple 'Clones:
fixated on Hawks, but can't
win games that really count.

Fans are stupid cunts;
stop whining for respect -- you're
still just Northwestern.

RANDOM REMINISCES

  • Keeping from Rose Bowl
    in '00 was sweet; Kustok
    just got sacked hard again.
  • In '07, Jake won;
    did you know he never lost
    to team from IL?
