Here we are in mid-November and another sport kicks off tonight in Iowa City! The Iowa Men's Basketball team kicks off their season against the Hampton Pirates. This team is no slouch. Went 18-13 last season and almost beat Penn State. This game is part of the 2K classic. Monday, Iowa will face North Dakota State - yes, the NDSU that beat Oklahoma in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament last March!
Then later next week, the Hawkeyes will travel to NYC to play #10 Texas at Madison Square Garden! Great experience for these kids and a great test out of the gate for Fran McCaffery's squad. Tonight, Hawkeyes color analyst, Bob Hansen, will join the show to talk Hawkeye Hoops!
Also joining the show is Minneapolis Star Tribune columnist, Jim Souhan. Jim will give us the latest regarding Adrian Peterson and preview the Vikings vs. Bears game on Sunday! My co-host, Jon Atkinson, and I will break down the NFC North games, the current state of the Big Ten (football) and we'll break out a new game at the end of the show!
After the show, WIN A SET OF GOLF CLUBS, A FOURSOME OF GOLF FROM FILLMORE FAIRWAYS OR A 2-NIGHT STAY AT THE HILTON GARDEN INN WITH DINNER FOR 2 AT CHAMPAGNE. Sorry for the all-caps, but I needed that sentence to pop!
The show is from 5-7 p.m. inside TPC Sports Bar at Mystique Casino! Stop by and enjoy $1 Budweiser cans! If you can't make it, tune in to AM 1490 WDBQ.
