Buy A Basic Iowa State Tailgating Bus – $7,500

  There are two states — Ohio and Iowa — that take their school/team themed buses and tailgating rides way more seriously than the rest of the United States. Why? There’s no scientific evidence why this is the case. Maybe it has to do with the ability to store these beasts in barns. What’s clear is that both states feature some of the best tailgating rides in the business...

Iowa Jokingly Checked With Davidson To Make Sure Steph Curry Wasn’t Still Eligible

Back in 2008, the sports world was introduced to Davidson guard Steph Curry, who led the Wildcats to the Elite Eight behind his ridiculous sharp-shooting. Curry, as we all know, has since moved on to become one of the best players in the NBA. The Iowa Hawkeyes, who play Davidson in their opening matchup in this year’s NCAA Tournament, are very happy about that fact, apparently...

Iowa Offensive Tackle Brandon Scherff Can Move Some Serious Weight

Brandon Scherff's story is not unusual. A 3-star recruit coming out of high school, he was not heavily recruited, but was sought after by the two biggest schools in state, Iowa and Iowa State. Five years (thanks to a redshirt year) and 38 starts (26 at left tackle) he is expected to be one of the first offensive linemen to come off the board. With size and strength like his I can...

Iowa Football's Legacy Began in First Meeting with Vols

The Iowa Hawkeyes did not live up to their preseason expectations. Instead of winning the Big Ten West, they went 7-5 and are now 2.5-point underdogs to a 6-6 Tennessee team in the TaxSlayer Bowl (formerly known as the Gator Bowl). Yet expectations follow past greatness and Iowa has now come full circle, for its success was forged when it first played Tennessee 32 years ago. When...
