Here we are, Hawkeye fans. The moment is now that not many could’ve imagined in late August on the dawn of the 2013 college football season: It’s Gameday Eve as Iowa takes on LSU in the 2014 Outback Bowl. As I shoveled another 2 inches of snow off my driveway last night, the reality certainly set in that I will not be witnessing the game live in the Florida tropics. But, nonetheless, I’ll be cozy and comfortable watching from the artificial warmth of my basement with plenty of snacks in homey tailgate fashion. As I’ve mentioned in the last few posts, my family and I watched the 2005 Capital One Bowl live and in person. It was the only bowl game I’ve ever watched live and I’ve always told myself that experience could not be beat. In today’s post I’m going to try to describe in photos that I’ve taken what I hope to see happen in tomorrow’s game. Obviously I’m going to predict a Hawkeye victory, and I really hope it does come down to the game’s final play. That final play I hope for will be reminiscent of the 2005 Capital One Bowl where Drew Tate threw the deep ball to Warren Holloway for the game winner and Holloway’s first and only touchdown reception of the season for the departing senior. So, let’s get started!
WHAT I THINK WILL HAPPEN
WHAT I WANT TO SEE HAPPEN
The game will be tied late in the 4th quarter. Then all Hawkeye Heck breaks loose.
So that’s my story. Hawkeyes will win 30-24.
Happy New Year everybody! LET’S GO HAWKS!
