Is Paul Clark still around? I’m sure he has some Twitter gold worthy of posting. I can’t find him.

I must say, I didn't get the sometimes harsh Deuce criticism last spring, at least in this scrimmage. He actually completed a couple of, how you say, downfield passes. It brought the spring of '13 to mind; the actual competition was Rudock and Sokol, but the kid with the talent was the clearly #3 guy from Tennessee. Neither CJ nor Deuce knew what they were doing in their first spring. (Brad Banks was worse in the spring of 2001.)

Nevermind that’s not the dance team and they do look like they have a lot of spirit.

Rewatching now, Iowa had a #39 long snapper in the game with no name on his jersey. Did Spiewak get hurt or were they pissed at him for the snap on the first FG attempt?

Spiewak continued to snap for punts and a true freshman walkon named Luke Elkin replaced him on FGs. A poster somewhere posted that Spiewak had a bad week of practice so the hook was quick.

Double edged sword for them - 4 million saw Iowa strangle the fuck out of their best team ever.

He is doing my favorite thing right now, he goes radio silent on twitter for like 2-3 days after "bad" ISU loses.

that seems kind of shitty and an indictment of ISU bringing any real incremental value at all

Any noticable difference in ratings this year with fans back? I know some.stadiums had some people in them, and one game isn't going to make a difference, but a half day window with 30-40 games is a lot of people. Or I am an idiot.

I think these are averages, which is to say, Iowa State filling their pants and giving up, which certainly drove away viewers late, lowered the numbers.
