Iowa won its bowl game. It was a square football with the minus-15 rushing yards, but it was a win and that is why you play the games.

We talk Outback Bowl. A lot of ins and outs and what have you with that. (Kidding, it was a complicated case that I’m sure you will learn to love as the great gulf of the offseason flows.)

We dip our toes into 2019. We do talk, because it’s our podcast and we can do whatever we want, about possible departures, both players and coaches. Prepare for Iowa to send four players into the NFL. Prepare for that. As far as coaches, that’s simply a much more difficult read, but Iowa is going to have to fight hard to keep a few guys and it’d be a minor miracle if there were no staff changes this offseason (you can probably say that about most offseasons).

Here’s almost 2 hours of strands for your old Duder heads.

Again, huge thanks to Penske Truck Rental for sponsoring us this season. That affirmation meant a lot.

Thanks to everyone out there. You steer the ship. Thanks so much for listening.

We’ll be back next week.
