    Breaking News: Iowa to only have a 3 Game Season...

    Hawkeyes Announce 2008 Schedule

    Sept. 17th, 2007
    Iowa City, IA

    The University of Iowa Athletic Department has released the 2008 football schedule, and it was a surprise to see Iowa will only play 3 teams next year:


    Aug. 30 – Bye


    Sept. 6 - Bye
    Sept. 13 - Bye
    Sept. 20 - Bye
    Sept. 27 - Bye


    Oct. 4 - @ Ohio St.
    Oct. 11- Bye
    Oct. 18 - Bye
    Oct. 25 - @ Michigan


    Nov. 1 - Bye
    Nov. 8 - Penn St.
    Nov. 15 - Bye
    Nov. 22 – Bye


    Gary Barta announced the change after the hawkeyes lost, again, to in-state rivals, the Iowa St. Cyclones. Barta, “Our great fans demanded that the Cyclones be removed from future schedules because the Hawkeyes had nothing to gain in national prominence by playing [the Cyclones].”


    Barta went on to explain that after looking over the schedule there really weren't many teams that did give the Hawkeyes a chance to gain respect nationally. Iowa will only continue to play Penn St, Ohio St. and Michigan.


    After being questioned about past losses to struggling Big 10 programs such as Indiana, Northwestern, and Minnesota. Barta explained that [the hawkeyes] couldn't win those games because [Iowa] is every teams' “Super Bowl”, and the those games don't mean as much to Iowa.


    In related news... Ohio St, Michigan, and Penn St. look to end their series with Iowa as those schools have nothing to gain and everything to lose in national respect by playing the hawkeyes.

    Well the rest of the announcement must have gotten cut off because it was stating that Iowa would only play those three teams as the first three games of the year and Iowa would only play at home because it just wasn't worth it to have to travel to places that have no football tradition.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    So I guess this means Ferentz will get paid about one million per loss?
    I'm afraid if I send this to some of my hawk friends, they might believe the story!!

    Cowboys?! How about the legendary Bo Jackson and the L.A. Raiders? Granted, I'm a 49ers fan--so you can't be Joe Montana and Jerry Rice, but Bo Jackson on Tecmo Bowl is the stuff of legends.

    It's a little hard to qualify for the Nat'l championship when you go 0-3 every year!

    4000 yards rushing with Bo Jackson when that game came out.

    That is going to make it tough to be bowl eligible but I'm sure they would think a 1 and 2 season would merit a Jan 1st bowl.
