A Big Weekend

I've been taking it easy the past couple weeks. I took spent some time away from blogging during the holiday. I've got plenty of excuses though...work gets pretty crazy at the end of the year, as my kid gets older he's staying up later and demanding more of my time, it's so dark out so early I just feel like sitting on the couch and watching TV all night, Iowa basketball is so hard to watch it makes me stop thinking about Iowa athletics, Iowa football hasn't played a game and is still a month away from the next, and on and on...

But, this weekend is a big weekend for Iowa. Not only will the football team learn its bowl destination (likely Glendale, Arizona for the Fiesta bowl) and its opponent (likely Boise State), but the #1 ranked wrestling team goes to Ames to face off against #2 Iowa State. I love watching and following Iowa wrestling, but I'd don't really know the first thing about wrestling. Well, guess I know the rules and scoring, but I am in no position to analyze the match ups or provide any insight. So, blogging will be limited on wrestling, but I'll be following the team closely all year.

Back to the bowl game...all signs are pointing to Iowa in the Fiesta Bowl as long as Texas takes care of business versus Nebraska. Things start to get interesting if Nebraska does win. To start who would be #2? The SEC loser? TCU? Cincinnati? Who would get bumped? Iowa? Boise State? Let's just hope Texas wins.
