"Let's lake these posts, and then celebrate our victory with a good book!"
Iowa. Northwestern. BHGP. LTP. Go.
BHGP: We are completely convinced Northwestern is the worst 4-0 team in the history of football. Ball State would beat the 'Cats by 2 touchdowns (and would bring more fans to Ryan Field than NU). Are we wrong and, if so, why?
BHGP: Last season, I was sitting in the stands as Iowa tied Northwestern in the second half. I told my dad, "Here come the Bacher interceptions...." Sure enough, Bacher forgot what team he was playing for and tossed three picks down the stretch that ended any chance of a Northwestern upset. Is there any reason why I should expect anything different this weekend? Has Bacher shown any sort of improvement in the first four weeks?
BHGP: You've been touting the Northwestern defense, now ranked #32 in the nation. Those numbers, however, are against Syracuse (#104 nationally in total offense), Duke (#43), Southern Illinois (1-AA), and Ohio (#91). Why should I think this isn't merely a function of the lack of opposition thusfar? Who should I be watching when Northwestern is on defense?
BHGP: I picked up two seats in the second row - right behind the Northwestern bench and across the aisle from the Northwestern visitor's section - for Saturday. Any messages you want me to relay to the team?
