While our men’s basketball team isn’t seeing the results we’d like so far this year, it’s worth noting their female counterparts are off to FIERY hot start, going 8-1 so far while earning 26 votes in the AP Poll this week.

Iowa’s success can be widely attributed to junior forward Megan Gustafson, who’s been named the Big Ten player of the week for the past four weeks.

Gustafson’s herculean effort against the Seminoles wasn’t enough to get her team the win against then-No. 13 FSU, but the Hawkeyes rebounded against Samford Sunday afternoon in a 80-59 win. Gustafson had 18 points and 11 rebounds in the win, cementing a reason why she’s been named to the Naismith Trophy watch list.

We look forward to watching Gustafson and Bluder’s Bunch continue to dominate on the hardwood. Their next game is Wednesday against a 3-4 Iowa State team.

No Sleep ‘Til Brooklyn, or whatever

In case you hadn’t heard, Iowa is going to the Pinstripe Bowl! That game is played somewhere in New York. Wherever the Yankees play.

It’s kind of funny. Iowa fans are pretty apathetic towards this bowl (perhaps rightfully so) while Boston College fans are excited about the matchup (also perhaps rightfully so). It’s just a tale of two fanbases I guess.

Furthermore, the Mothership gives the Pinstripe Bowl a “try to watch” rating!

So I guess Saquon Barkley isn’t winning the Heisman

I remember when his odds were 5:4.

There Will Be Pettiness:

Even though Michigan and Michigan State don’t play each-other for almost a calendar year, Mark Dantonio and Jim Harbaugh have still found a way to jab each-other.

Can’t we be glad Kirk Ferentz doesn’t know what Twitter is?

Chinander was on Frost’s staff this past season, also as d-coordinator. He played offensive line for Iowa as a walk-on from 1998-2002.
