Post-Game & Afternoon Games Thread: The Genesis of a Season

In the beginning, when God created Iowa (and earth)…and the earth was without form or shape, with darkness over the abyss and a mighty wind sweeping over the plains. Then God said: Let there be light, and there was light. God saw that the light was good. God then separated the light from the darkness. God called the light "Marvin McNutt," and the darkness he called "AIRBHG."

Iowa wins as expected but loses yet another promising young running back in the process. But, injury, rain, lightning and and likely some flooding cannot take away all the good though. McNutt looks to be in midseason form. James Vandenberg was effective and comfortable and the defensive backfield was a terror. Ross will have a thorough recap later on, but let's now turn our attention to the rest of the football world.  

SMALL print: No racism, no sexism, no homophobia, no pornography, no illegal internet streams of the games.  Go easy on the religion and politics, too.  We're here for the football, yeah?  Also, in threads like these that will get very, very busy, a little consideration goes a long way: try not to post gigantic images or a ton of .gifs and when you do post images PLEASE make sure to put something in the subject line (even "." will do) so that your comment can be hidden/minimized.
