You’d almost think Iowa and Northwestern were collectively unaware of the invention of the forward pass. But they did, in fact, play football in the year 2023 at Wrigley Field on Saturday, as the Hawkeyes prevailed 10-7.
If you had the misfortune of beholding any or all of this Big Ten slugfest, my condolences to you. But at least somebody came along to grace us with a black-and-white reel of “highlights”, complete with an old-time musical score.
I understand that Gerry DiNardo had a coaching career before getting into media. However, to reiterate something I’ve said in the past, when you have the luxury of focusing on one sport — nay, one league within that sport! — and this is still the dreck you come up with for “analysis” or what have you? It’s just… I wish I could understand.
You’re inevitably going to have many bad takes over the course of a career. This might be the worst take I’ve ever seen in my life. That’s saying something. This is Skip Bayless-Johnny Manziel-will-be-bigger-than-LeBron levels of off-base.
Johnny Football will one day be bigger in Cleveland than his buddy LeBron ever was.
I would say more about this Iowa-Northwestern game but I don’t particularly want to. Bury the tape. Before the aliens take over, destroy the evidence of this colossal waste of time that some of the human race once sat through.
For those of you sickos out there who love this sort of thing, knock yourselves out next week with the Rutgers-Iowa duel, where the 28.5 Over/Under for total points is set at 28.5. I’ll happily direct my eyes elsewhere.
