___________________________________________________________________________

Age old wisdom: changes are necessary when things are falling apart. It appears that Iowa coaches are determined to continue to test the truth of that proposition.

We have another repeat contest winner - congratulations to qrtr (8-2) who accomplished the feat by registering the top score for the second consecutive week.

The Tie-Breaker was employed to determine the Runner-up spot at 7-3 between QChawks, boxahawks, HawkGem10, and Hawkeye_4_Life. The Hawkeye offense was able to generate some decent yardage way too late on Saturday (TB = 281) and that enured to the benefit of QChawks (TB252) over the other finalists.

Scores for all 30 entries follow..............
