Six days until Iowa takes the gridiron against Miami (Ohio) and we look forward to bringing you a whole load o’ content here at the pants for the rest of the week.
Until then, here’s some good things to munch on.
-ICYMI, we brought you all 12 wins from last year’s football team in one place.
-The Des Moines Register editorial board calls for Iowa’s athletic department to become self-sustaining, and then some.
-Mike Hlas writes that going 12-0 shouldn’t be the only barometer of success for Iowa football this year.
-Interesting read on the history of Nebraska football, and how the program got to see success.
-Great oral history from Mitch Smith on the 10th anniversary of THE STAND.
-I guess it’s a good thing Rickie Fowler can’t get off Snapchat. He imploded at the final four holes of The Barclays to give Zach Johnson a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team.
-When Kirk Ferentz first reached out to Reese Morgan to join his staff, Morgan thought it was a prank caller.
-So it looks like there’s a couple of Hawkeyes playing football in Japan? Who woulda thunk.

-Who will be Iowa’s fourth captain?
KF names Week 1 captains tomorrow. 3 are locks: CJB, King, Jewell. Who is the 4th?— Chad Leistikow (@ChadLeistikow) August 29, 2016
-Oh, more sweet videos from Chris Ruth? What a surprise.
-More Iowa domination.
