Today's #GloomyDave forecast: Hawkeyes' bold gold alt uniforms provoke the wrath of a vengeful cosmos

Iowa 0
Penn State ♾
It's a shame, because the Hawkeyes were on a two game alt-uniform fashion win streak
I'm not generally against alt uniforms, except when a team pretends that black is part of their color scheme when everybody knows it isn't

Hawkeyes 3

Odd factlet: Iowa and Rutgers played a football game for the first time in 2016. Iowa played at least 1 game against every team in the Pac 12 before they played against every team in the Big 10.
yeah, just try to X & O your way out of this, Ferentz

Today's #GloomyDave forecast: tailspin Hawkeyes get taken to the slide rule shed by filthy Purple Poindexters

I would like to take this opportunity to remind their alumni and fans that Northwestern is the second most prestigious college in Chicago
Yes I'm aware they're a mile north of the borderline cemetery in Evanston, home of the Women's Christian Temperance Union. I'm just going off their billboard claims

Today's #GloomyDave forecast: Hawkeye Homecoming Deathmobile gets turtle-waxed

Maryland 31
Iowa 4
I am legit gloomy about this one. As soon as Iowa figures out the forward pass, they have to face 40 mph winds. Trap game with Penn St next week. Maryland has been schizophrenic, but they beat Texas and average like 250 yds on the ground.
In case you were wondering, here are the #MarbleGame standings going into today's games. Iowa has 293 marbles, Maryland 207. If IA wins, new marble count will be IA 334, MD 166; if MD wins it will be IA 220, MD 280.

Musicians 38
Poets 21
Indiana U has a proud history of having one of the top music programs in the country. (Humblebrag: Hawkspawn was accepted to IU School of Music but chose DePaul instead)
Best thing about this game is it provides a plausible excuse for @blueberry_town and me to pound bourbons before noon

Bring home the bacon. boys #FightForIowa #DefendFloyd
The surprising history of Floyd of Rosedale, college football's best traveling trophy. Created to diffuse tensions over Minnesota's targeting of black Hawkeye halfback Ozzie Simmons in the 1934 game
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iowa%E2%8…
Even more backstory: Iowans' anger over the 1934 treatment of Simmons was amplified because of Jack Trice, a black Iowa State player who died after being stomped in the 1923 ISU-Minnesota game. ISU's stadium is named for him.
