Hello all. It's your good friend Hawkeye State, here to get you through the next few hours. First, in honor of Purdue (who we really haven't talked about this week, what with all the post-Illinois gloating), I give you guys who look like Joe Tiller:
Wilfred Brimley looks like Joe Tiller
Craig Stadler looks like Joe Tiller
Mike Holmgren totally looks like Joe Tiller
Paul McCartney looks nothing like Joe Tiller, but he was the walrus
Now, with that out of the way, let's talk football. Open thread. You know the rules. I'll be here, drinking away the morning with you.
