    North Texas got blown out by a bad Rice team. They suck, so hopefully can get Mitchell some carries.

    North Texas gives up a ton of yards. Almost 400 passing yards today.

    I have control over being friends with dumb isu fans.

    with the grass lots closed the parking situation yesterday sucked. I got stuck in the very back of a huge lot and given that I was driving home and not feeling that great I got worried about spending 2 hours getting out of town after. I don't particularly like driving at night but regardless but I am a fucking idiot.

    McClintock and I parked at the church on Melrose. Stayed the entire game, even several minutes after the game, walked several blocks to my truck, started it at 10:40pm or so, and made it to Altoona area by midnight.

    Danny is the most palatable of all the recent ISU coaches, easily. Doug called it right, he should have never been fired, but good for us.

    McCarney should have been their Hayden Fry (as much as you can at Iowa State) and coached there for 20 years. They were so fucking stupid for firing him.

    As a comparison, we walked back to the church lot right after the game. We probably were in our car trying to get out of the parking lot for a good 30 minutes. We got to Solon at 11:58 pm.

    Never. Again.

    KF ain't gonna humiliate Uncle Dan. Still, he has to appreciate the need to get RB help as his top two have injury histories. Wiegers needs series. Hawks 35-7

    The game will be closer than it should be as the coach's try different personnel and plays. Our Oline is the weakest link and needs to get their shit together very soon.

    Iowa 27-10

    This will be the game where Mitchell goes for 150 and 2 TDs and we'll all be incredulous when he doesnt get a single carry against Wisky.

    The O-Line has been pretty damn good considering. That was a tough game for even a veteran line.

    A few of those were on him and the play calling. He has to do a better job recognizing blitzes and calling audibles.

    The last few years we have been shut down by blitzing teams even with the humongous brain at QB.

    I know it sounds old mannish but my night vision sucks along with my distance vision. even with glasses. combined with the interstate death trap I was getting retardedly anxious about both driving and the possibility of driving after a nut crushing loss.

    I've learned my lesson.

    as mentioned, it was the convergence of a bunch of factors, the main one being that I felt like shit and my head was pounding.

    I will continue to support the rights of Americans to enjoy road rockets but after an Iowa game is not one of those times.

    also, random checkpoints.
