Welcome to Volume II of the BHGP Treasury. An explanation on the what, why and how is included in Volume I. Let's dig on.
--- M ---
Man-cott - The Outback Bowl had the audacity to pass over 6-6 Iowa for 9-3 Wisconsin, so we did the only logical thing; and how dare you not offer a free gift card; probably kept Iowa out of the top-25 too; the Man-cott ended in 2008 when Iowa accepted a bid to the Outback Bowl to murder the Gamecocks; returned in 2009 when American patriot Ricky Stanzi was not listed on the Davey O'Brien watchlist.
Remember, they haven't had us back since 2008
Marc Morehouse - Cedar Rapids Gazette sportswriter and friend of the pants; has his own head icon for God's sake.
Marchifornication - The one true tournament in March and the only one the Hawks have been involved in the last six years; are you ready?
Marcus Coker - Former Iowa running back; slotted fourth in the opening werewolf power rankings; totally stiff-armed an asteroid; took a day off; was suspended, but not for trading memorabilia for tatttoos, get it right.
Mark Dantonio - Michigan State head coach and master disciplinarian; yep.
Marvin McNutt - At one time was a quarterback, instead turned into the best Iowa receiver of all-time. Still does most of his work with one-hand though.
Matt Gatens - The Iowa basketball version of Ladell Betts; skipped over captaincy by Lickliter; hears voices in his head; was screwed over in Marchifornication by Montreal Screwjob; should have went way old school; shooting with a glowing ball right now.
Maygasm - Eric May brings you to the peak with his athletic play, just don't let the other 38 minutes make you go limp.
Memes - Nobody deserves them more than Iowa State
Metrodome - The only good thing about the Gopher's former home is the extra wide bathroom stalls.
Michigan girl - "What is happening?!!!"
Thank god for the arrow
Mika'il McCall - Disobeyed the one rule of Kirk Ferentz - do not go on BHGP; it's pretty much strait bullshit.
Mike Hlas - Cedar Rapids Gazette sports columnist and another friend of the pants; a pretty hlilarious, hlonest, hlomer (and I'm sure he's never seen this sort of joke before).

Money - Kind of went to our heads.
Move Your Feet - Junior Senior's masterpiece; reserved for the best of times

Paki O'Meara - Our favorite Indian-Irish walk-on halfback; got jealous of Ricky Stanzi, so he stole his face in some kind of Face-Off procedure (I think); then did the same with Adrian Clayborn; can flatten an entire town with one carry;
rap starting career lasted one half; dressed up as Captain America Herky.
Parking garage arm - Constantly in danger around drunk Iowa players.
