Before I get to my usual solicitation begging for your questions, comments and theories (of which I apparently “overshare” on...), I wanted to make sure that all of you saw this very important highlight video:
10 Days Until the Return #FightForIowa https://t.co/mry9hUhmvZ— Iowa Basketball (@IowaHoops) October 17, 2017
I’m not sure if we’ve ever given a shout out to Charlie Rose before on this site, but the clip that the media crew threw in (:25 second mark) of him counting three’s has made me laugh the seven times I've watched this clip. Classic end of bench clip showing some personality from a guy that is otherwise nameless unless Iowa blow’s out one of their non-con opponents (I still remember your first shot, a made 3-pointer against North Dakota State, buddy!).
With the season I’m expecting from the Franimal House, I really hope that he, Riley Till, Austin Ash and Maishe Dailey can come up with some more bench reaction highlights that could rival the G.O.A.T:
I don’t know how you beat Human Scissors or the Gives Me Life, but I hope Rose and Co. takes a crack at it. Why not? I mean, if they do it right and pick their spots (don’t get overzealous when McCaffery has a giant red flare in his eye and cheekbones) an active bench makes for an even better season.
Plus, Rose is a senior. Let’s go out in style, my dude.
Hell, it might even make the old donors that get ALL the good seats at CHA react a little bit! It’s a win/win.
We support you Charlie. Let’s make Iowa’s bench get the same national exposure the entire team is going to get.
One early thought from the Big Ten Preseason Poll: Would be SHOCKED if Iowa finishes eighth. Talent is there for Hawkeyes to be in top-five.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) October 17, 2017
Per usual, you can hit me up in the comments section of this post, leave them in the BHGP Facebook comment section, hit me up @JerryScherwin on Twitter or just send out a general Tweet using the hashtag #HelloJerry so we can shut down Jerry Blevins who was 1000% the USMNT jinx:
Goodluck to #USMNT tonight. Clinch that World Cup berth!— Jerry Blevins (@jerryblevins) October 10, 2017
#HEYJERRY, I have a question: How do you feel about the USMNT being 0-1 in games against a lower tier opponent AND 0-1 for making the World Cup after a direct Tweet from you?
For those without Twitter and Facebook and still have an AOL account, you can email them to me as well (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We’ll be running these on Thursday so get ‘em in folks.
Love you all,
