tBBC Game Preview: Iowa Hawkeyes

The #4/3 Buckeyes (6-0, 2-0) host the Fightin’ Ferentzs’ of Iowa (4-2, 1-1) for an afternoon game in Columbus on Saturday.

Know your enemy: Iowa edition

Among current Big Ten coaches, Iowa head man Kirk Ferentz is a familiar face.  Only Joe Paterno of Penn State has a longer tenure at his current school than Ferentz, but it’s hard to get a true sense of long-standingness with an outlier like Paterno in the mix.  Perhaps a larger sample size is appropriate, […]

The Week That Were: 10.30.10

Happy Halloween! As tempting as it is for me to throw a little Western History at you with today’s musical accompaniment, let’s go with something a little more Disney: Following up on our Protestant Reformation reference, let’s jump in with the  goings on over at Ntre Ame.
