    The start of College Football is officially a week away. Iowa is the first game to kick off on Saturday and the weather forecast shows isolated thunderstorms in the morning with lots of humidity and high of 88 degrees.

    Let the predictions flow. Same rules as last year, the poster closest to the score wins the prize of @brantshawks sucking your penus while he tells you about craft beer he bought on his credit card.

    Here is to the 90% chance of @MikeyJoe and @Wild Onion not having chat open on time!!

    At least. I have however spent time this evening on new chat software for this year. Trying to get something that is more mobile-friendly.

    30-27. Not sure who wins, but I'm sensing something that looks a lot like the NIU 2013 home opener. Hope we now have a QB who can avoid the late pick on a horizontal throw

    Offense looks shaky, and the defense gets gashed, but wins the turnover battle. Redbirds miss a game winning field goal try late.

    Ready for season to get rolling, even though I'm not real confident Iowa any good.

    Iowa starts fast out of the gates, jumping out to an early 14-0 lead and everyone loves KF.
    Redbirds hang close. Iowa leads 24-17 going into 4th qtr. The uneasy feelings start to creep in and the pitch forks start coming out.
    Redbirds make a few big plays. Iowa offense sputters in 4th qtr.

    Redbirds win, 30-24. Everyone hates KF and Co.

    Dual threat QB, stud running back, nothing to lose, and several weeks to prep/game plan.

    Iowa is fucked.

    Looks like they also lost both of their starting offensive and defensive tackles. They also lost their starting TE who was a 5th round draft pick and two 1000 yard receivers.

    All that plus pets, remote controls, TVs, drywall, plumbing, lamps, and glassware. Not me, of course, but some of y'all.

    I have to think that Sheriff's departments have a first responder's code of 'football anger.'
