Iowa goes on the Oregon Trail

Oregon_trail_opening_medium

No photos have been released of the team's trip to Eugene, Oregon, but BHGP's computer experts were able to produce the following simulation of their harrowing trek. We are assured by our scientists that what that follows is 99.9% likely to match the real experience of the team. You may want to shield your children's eyes, as this all gets very, very harrowing.

So it looks like we're in for a rough end to the season. Too bad we won't be able to play Oregon on Sunday, because I think we would have had a good chance to win. Also, if Andrew Brommer is alive and can read this, no help is coming. You shot a buffalo and you will pay the piper. Finally, RIP Branden Stubbs and Darius Stokes.
