Iowa City, IA, artist Heidi Atkins McEchron was so taken by Hawkeyes fan Samantha Goudie blowing a .341 on the breathalyzer prior to the August 31st home game against Northern Illinois that she commemorated it with an oil painting. Titled “An Intelligent Young Woman With a Bright Future,” McEchron’s painting is selling on eBay for $146.50 (as of 1 PM ET Wednesday). Here’s the hilarious descriptor of the painting: This painting depicts my interpretation of the adorably wasted University of Iowa student who stumbled her way into the Internet’s heart after she reportedly tried to get onto the field at Kinnick Stadium before being stopped by police and arrested. According to her Twitter bragging (and ICPD report), her blood alcohol content was .341, which I believe is just above comatose and therefore a feat worth celebrating. A perfect example of fleeting Internet celebrity (or at least ignominy), “.341 Grrl” is truly an inspiration to all current and former students of the UI. Own a piece of history today! They really will sell anything on eBay, won’t they? [Deadspin]

The Iowa Hawkeyes have never worried about the battle inside the trenches. Iowa’s linemen have consistently been the key to head coach Kirk Ferentz success. This year however, they still have much to prove in order for the Hawkeyes to not only prevail over Minnesota on Saturday, but also to win more Big Ten games than they did a year ago. Ferentz’s success as an offensive line...
COACH FERENTZ: Obviously look forward to getting going this week. Our captains again are the same four guys. We’ve got James Morris, Chris Kirksey on the defensive side, Brett Van Sloten and Mark Weisman offensively. Certainly pleased for both Kevonte and B.J. being recognized this past weekend. That was a nice feat for those guys. Obviously happy with the win.

They’ll be starting their #2 quarterback, who is a better runner but not as good of a passer as their #1. It will be his second career...
