Doing this again, same as last year. We're predicting game outcomes, not just total record. Meaning I can't do anything with "7-5".

I'll keep bumping this every week with the standings. You can change picks up until kickoff Week 1, unless it starts getting too crazy. Double check your picks after I update the spreadsheet below to make sure I didn't screw up when entering them.

I'll start:

South Dakota State - W
ISU -W
Nevada - W
@ Rutgers - W
Michigan - L
@ Illinois - W
@ the Ohio State - L
Northwestern - W
@ Purdue - L
Wisconsin - L
@ Minnesota - W
Nebraska - W

8-4

7-5 and Brian gets the boot.
Record prediction not totally off the wall although I think they win 9. The Brian prediction is kinda dumb. You do know that he's pretty tight with Kirk right, and Kirk isn't going anywhere.

Get as high as #4 in the polls.
Then a fade at the finish.

Close to how I see it ... apart from the fact that I think that we nip Michigan early.

We are going to beat Purdue, anyone who said we’d lose to them has little faith. We will lose 2 games this year but 1 will not be against Purdue in 2022 they’re are literally handicapped.

You're deviating from Iowa's "normal pattern" ... winning a game they shouldn't ... and losing a game (or games) that they shouldn't.

Hopefully we're both right that they start off the season pretty fast. I agree with folks out there who contend that Rutgers could be a tough out. I think that the Hawks win ... but I expect Rutgers to put up one hell of a tussle.

I’ll go with 11-1
Loss at OSU

you should know I do my best predicting when I drink…vodka soda being consumed

Mich game will be electric
OSU is the house of horrors
We get Wisky at home
We have to beat Purdue….right
Minnesota….this was actually a tough one but late in the year and we pound the ball
Nebraska will be toast by the time we see them
Go Hawks!

8-4. I’d love to be optimistic, but I expect special teams to take a big step back and the offense not to take a big enough step forward, losing 4 close games. Defense will be one of the best in school history. Hope I’m wrong about the offense and our record.

After a massive hard fought W against M, I see the possibility of a choke at Ill against Bert and then an L at the shoe. Back on track but feel Pajamas Fleck and his rowing sky-u-ma's catch us in a night game in shitty weather at the bank. 9-3

Illinois is a trap game. I'm not convinced yet though they can beat Iowa physically.
