I miss the the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. I never saw the Hawkeyes lose a game at Kinnick North and, well, you could watch a game unencumbered by five layers of clothing.

Looks like we will be getting January not November weather for this contest - zero/sub-zero wind chill temps forecasted. I've found that good old Peppermint Schnapps is a valuable companion when confronted with these conditions... I might have to throw down a pre-game sympathy shot for the fans attending this game.

Deep freeze notwithstanding, with the B10W title still in play and custody of the pig up for grabs, both teams should have plenty of motivation. Let's get it on...........
