LEFT TACKLE PASS TRICK PLAY

6

Two weeks later, Iowa, at 10-0, still sits eighth in the playoff poll as Wisconsin visits Kinnick Stadium. In the third quarter, with the Badgers leading 17-13, left tackle Brandon Scherff lines up at tight end and takes a toss from Jordan Canzeri, delivering a strike to Kevonte Martin-Manley for a 62-yard touchdown. Iowa wins 27-17.

HAMSTERDAM THINKS GORDON RAMSAY MIGHT NOT BE GOOD AT THIS RESTAURANT THING

938
Grand Totals Number of participating restaurants in seven seasons: 77 Number still open: 30 (38.86 percent) Number that have closed: 47 (61.84 percent) Approximate number of restaurants closed within one year of (or before) the episode air dates: 23 (29.87 percent) http://www.grubstreet.com/2014/06/gordon-ramsay-kitchen-nightmares-restaurant-closure-rates.html

HAMSTERDAM IS PRETTY SURE IT HAD THOSE NUMBERS WRONG FOR A LONG TIME

655

On with the Richter scale, an increase of one step on this logarithmic scale corresponds to a 10^1.5 ≈ 32 times increase in the amount of energy released, and an increase of two steps corresponds to a 10^3= 1000 times increase in energy. So a 7.0 is 32x the destructive power of a 6.0 and 1000x the power of a 5.0. And I'd always thought I'd heard it was 10x (exponent 1 instead of 1.5) as powerful for each step, a number that is off by magnitudes with each extra step.

HAMSTERDAM IS SENDING MEMOS

The Verge COMCAST is not real thrilled with the 8-minute disaster call that went viral a week or so ago, but they are probably even less thrilled that these memos keep leaking.

The Gazette Spends a Day With Tom Brands

Iowa’s Phillip Laux was working out for the second time of the day and Brands spoke up while he was wrestling with former Hawkeye and HWC member Matt McDonough. "Are you a straw house or a brick house?" Brands said. "Then don’t fall to your belly when he blows on you."

AIRBHG in the dictionary

Iowa has 2 entries in the Grantland Dictionary: College Football Internet Edition. Glad to see "AIRBHG" and "Kirk Ferentz" rank up there with "MACtion," "Row the Boat" and the "Fulmer Cup."

The first ever college basketball game was played on January 18, 1896, when the University of Iowa invited student athletes from the new University of Chicago for an experimental game. Final score: Chicago 15, Iowa 12, a bit different from the hundred-point scores of today.
