Hawk Talk

Iowa 27 / UNI 16

One of the great things about following college football (or pro football) is that it only happens once a week.
If your team wins (like the Hawkeyes) you have all week to enjoy the victory, watch the replay of the game  (if you tape it like me) and break down the win.
The dark side is if you lose, you have a whole week of some sport writers ripping the Hawks, the message boards ready to fire every coach and a long week to deal with the negatives.
It’s even worse when your pro team (Da Bears) loses like they did to the Packers Thursday.
