6. Hawkeye running backs: Iowa might be flying under the radar entering 2012, but everyone knows about the Hawkeyes' woes at running back, thanks to the work of AIRBHG (h/t Black Heart Gold Pants). Another offseason of attrition leaves Iowa with several unproven options entering Saturday's opener against defending MAC champ Northern Illinois at Chicago's Soldier Field. Fans are most intrigued to see true freshman Greg Garmon, a four-star prospect out of Erie, Pa. Although Iowa's offense will have more of a passing lean this fall, the program always has been at its best with a reliable ball-carrying option.
— From the ESPN Big Ten Blog's "What to Watch" feature for Week 1, Adam Rittenberg spreads awareness of AIRBHG, to Pat Harty's chagrin. It raises a good question, though: what are YOU most looking forward to seeing out of Iowa on Saturday? Garmon? The Polish Hat? The defense? Conor Kornbrath? (Don't deny your red-hot punter love, commentariat.)
