    This is the biggest Iowa game any of us have ever seen. Ever. The worst case scenario is the Rose Bowl.

    Holy motherfucking shitballs.

    We're about to witness an Iowa football game bigger than the 85 #1 vs. #2 game.

    I was born in 1986 and always assumed I'd never get to experience a game bigger then that as an Iowa fan.

    I'm not doing anything all week at work. Gonna soak in as much of this one as I can.

    My wife, God bless her, went to the fridge earlier, grabbed a couple beers, and said "what an awesome feeling it is knowing the team you love, at worst, is most likely Pasadena bound. As will we be."

    Merry Christmas to me.

    I have a feeling that these Hawkeyes are using their 24 hours to wash down saltpeter with one Busch Light and one O'Douls. With some variation, of course.

    I think Kirk, Brian, and the boyz need to think outside of the box and do something to loosen up our guys this week. Like a celebrity cameo appearance at practice or some sort of team practical joke that involves the press.

    I'm serious. Tensions are probably a bit high whether these kids are willing to admit to it or not. Let's mix a little fun in there. I know when I was that age I would have appreciated that sort of thing. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for these guys. They should enjoy it.

    Maybe Michigan 1985 was as big. Dunno. You are likely right. Thing is, I feel like we are playing with house money now. Any previous huge game I didn't feel that way.

    Not even close to as big. #1 vs. #2 in the middle of the season is meaningless compared to being #4 at worst and playing for a spot in the College Football Playoff.

    It would be like thinking a January game at Carver Hawkeye between #1 Iowa and #2 Michigan State is bigger than an undefeated Iowa playing an Elite Eight game to go to the Final Four.

    Well shit, Saturday will be the biggest game in Iowa's history.

    13-0(!)

    Big Ten Championship(!!)

    Chance to play a two-game playoff for the ultimate prize(!!!)

    This is only going to likely happen one time in our lives. Don't sit there and want it to be next Saturday quicker, soak every second of this up. You should want this week go slow and take in every article and piece of info that you can.

    I'm about to reserve our hotel room in Los Angeles for the Rose Bowl scenario and checking into the selfish ideal scenario that Iowa is #2 or #3 and I can drive a couple hours up the road and spend New Year's Eve at AT&T Stadium.

    I wonder if this is how (for the people around our age) our parents felt back when Hayden got Iowa into the first couple Rose Bowls.

    January 1st 1991.

    My dad got so drunk and angry during that Washington game that he disappeared out walking for most of the night. I'll never forget it.

    Wanna make it up to him.

    You all convinced me. Biggest game in the last 40-50 years. Hard to believe it but it's true.
    In any case I'm no longer concerned. Iowa finished 12-0 and the rest is gravy. We can beat MSU.

    Amazing that Iowa won when CJ had a very sub-par game. Someone else always seems to step up to fill a void. These guys are winners.

    That "selfish ideal" scenario is probably the most likely for Iowa with a win next weekend, right? It's still hard for me to
    imagine an undefeated Iowa getting the 4 seed. I think the committee will reward Iowa if they "prove it" next weekend. Oklahoma may have more good wins, but they have a bad loss as well. Id think iowa would have a slight edge.

    I think that will be the case. If everyone wins in the current Top 4, then they are likely going to reward Iowa for the extra game and beating #5 Michigan State and put them at #3 or possibly even #2.

    I'm having an extended fart session right now. These farts are particularly obnoxious. Not sure if that's due to nerves, canned cranberry, or heavy amounts of light beer. I'm going to die single because of it, but I won't be lonely. I count every hair on these Hawkeyes' large testicles as kin.
