Well, that took long enough. After a wait of interminable length, Hawkeye football will return to us this evening. Savor it, cherish it, and love it, because once it's gone we'll have nothing but the highlights to sustain us until September (curse you, football gods). But are you in need of additional hype for this evening's sporting contest? Yeah, I thought so.
(H/T to Hawkeyeshawn1234)
So, yes, let this sporting event between the corn-fed Iowan bruisers and the big-brained Georgian nerds commence, post haste. (Hooray for gross generalizations!)
Are you in need of reading material to kill some time until kickoff?
- ESPN's Big Ten blog chimes in with three keys for Iowa (and their ACC blogger does the same), and engages said ACC blogger in a debate about the game (conference affiliations hold true in their predictions); Insider ($) offers the most comprehensive preview on the WWL
- CNNSI likes Tech
- Yahoo says it's all about Iowa's D versus Tech's O (shock!), but the experts are split on their picks
- And, of course, friends of the blog Marc Morehouse and Mike Hlas have tons of good coverage from Miami to get you properly hyped up. (And there's even more from them here, although the site isn't loading at the moment.)
