Quick And Dirty Iowa Preview, WIth Boilermakings!

I need to do a link dump today, but I also need to do an Iowa preview, so it is time for a double-shock! The Hawkeyes are still fresh in our mminds from the conference opener three weeks ago. Since then, they have sprung upsets over Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan. This is a dangerous team we need to take seriously. We're playing at home, but out invincibility was broken last week against a team we historically dominate in Mackey like no other.

I don't know what to think, except we haven't dropped two in a row all season and we tend to look pretty good in the games after losses. It's simplistic, but this feels like a classic, "do whatever is necessary and get the win," game. As far as I am concerned, Iowa can go an pillage the rest of the Big Ten for upsets after we secure our sweep over them. I will say this, however: Chris Kramer is back in Indiana this week, and hopefully he will be back in the building since we started the 26 game winning streak in his final game at Mackey.
