By Andrew Gogerty @andrewgogerty It wasn’t a real glamorous week in Cyclone Nation.  And it was headed toward the brink of disaster midway through a homecoming battle with Toledo, who’s not exactly Baylor or Oklahoma, but a formidable opponent for sure.  The Cyclones put together their best thirty minutes of football this season in the ...

By Andrew Gogerty It’s hard to believe we are 1/3 of the way through the season already.  The Cyclones sit at 1-3 after a 49-28 loss to the Baylor Bears.  How good is that Baylor team?  I’ve been to a lot of games at Jack Trice Stadium in my 39 years, and that may have ...

By Mathew Gogerty Last week the Hawkeyes were on a bye, so they’ve had an extra week to rest up and prepare for Indiana, who’s currently 3-2 overall, with one of those wins coming over (then 18th ranked) Missouri out of the mighty SEC Conference.
