Things are going to start happening to me now....*

Well shit, to be honest it's been out for over 3 months.  I just got around to looking for it at work today.  Some brilliant bastard named Simon put it together.  He runs SimonOnSports, which I confess to knowing nothing about.  Today there was a great video of a teenage girl getting absolutely drilled in the face with a soccer ball, so he gets points for that.  Feel free to go there and snoop around. 

Anyway...for those who have never seen it, it's an Excel spreadsheet of complete schedules for all teams split into tabs by the major conferences.  Download it here.  Each team is represented by their helmet, so it's pleasing to the eyeballs.  I recommend printing it off using company resources and hanging it in your cubicle.  That way you have some nice visual stimulation while your soul is being shit on for 8 hours a day. 

This year's schedule is a little bit different as he has used random vintage helmets for each team.  As stated on his blog:

No particular era, kind of just looked at all the retro helmets and picked the ones I liked best.

For Iowa he went with what looks like circa 1971:


Kind of looks like a high school logo to me.  Emmetsburg, to be exact.  I'd prefer the current helmet, because this one confuses me when I try to read the schedule.  But fuck it, dude, beggers can't be choosers.  Plus it could be worse.  We could have gotten stuck with this ugly purple piece of shit:

Usually only the "j" is lowercase, but it's still a nice touch.

He also put together a "games of the week" schedule, available here.  Bonus points for Simon for his ultimate wisdom in putting Iowa in there twice: the Penn State and Ohio State games.
