Hawkeyes Win!

The first Hawkeye football game of the season was today.  Heather and I left Fairfield around 6:00 a.m., and we headed for Iowa City.  We met up with the Mornin' Crew, and we had a super time!  We took the shuttle over to the stadium around 10:00 a.m., and everything was really buzzing with excitement.  I have to go through the south gates of the stadium, so I can touch Nile Kinnick's helmet before I go in, just like the team does.  

We made it in plenty of time for the National Anthem (the sound of music... inside joke), and we were off.  What a day.  Not a cloud in the sky.  And, we came away with a W.  The Hawks won 46-3!  Maine wasn't much of a challenge, so it's hard to tell what the Hawks will really be able to do this year, but it was such a fun day.  Every spring, I think to myself, "Is this money really worth it?  Do I really want to do this another year?"  And every fall, when I walk into that stadium for the first time, I know I'd regret not renewing my season tickets.  There is just nothing like the atmosphere in Kinnick.  I can't wait to go back next Saturday!  Go Hawks!

  1. That was a great game for Iowa fans. Was it enough for Ferentz to save his job? Only the rest of the season will tell. It was a great game to showcase the freshman talent on the team, namely Jewel Hampton. Keep an eye on that kid, I see big things in his future.
