#oniowapod - Kind of a heavy news week, you guys

Between Ferentz contract and Cy-Hawk, the podcast over floweth

Here’s how the week works for those of us who cover the Iowa week:

Monday is sort of slow. There’s the depth chart. This week there was a trip to Ames to meet up with some Cylones. Tuesday is Hawkeye talking day, the only day of the week where there’s access to head coach Kirk Ferentz and players. It sucks, but after 18 years, you kind of just let some Pringles sit at the bottom of the can.

Tuesdays are mega days. This week, with news of Ferentz’s contract extension coming down basically when most media was on its way over to do interviews, Tuesday was even mega-ier.

But it was fun.

Land of 10’s Scott Dochterman and I schedule the On Iowa podcast on Thursday afternoons so we can kind of digest everything and give informed opinions. We reviewed Iowa’s 45-21 victory over Miami (Ohio), talked some Iowa-Iowa State matchups in Saturday’s Cy-Hawk game and answered a ton of your Twitter questions, many of which centered on Ferentz, Iowa AD Gary Barta and the deal.

Thank you for listening and participating!

Umm, we got so busy that we forgot a prediction. Yeah, we forgot. So, here they are:

Scott has Iowa 34-20. I have the Hawkeyes winning 41-24.
