Two words. Week 1. We have finally made it to the promiseland folks. Football is back and that means the Hawks are ready to roll. Although I am excited, I have put myself on the injured reserve from a recent incident. After seeing the Ricky Stanzi narrated hype video that the Hawkeye media put out I may or may not have put my shoulder out running through a brick wall. If you haven’t seen the video, go take a look and come back to the blog after recovering from your goosebumps. So many fond memories of Ricky Stanzi. Guy loves football, America, and Iowa Hawkeye football, my kind of dude.
The Hawks look to warm up this weekend with the feisty Utah State *checks notes for mascot* Aggies. We shall see if McNamara laces up the cleats and it sounds like it’s the coaches decision at this point. I’m eager to see the Hawks come out fast and put some points on the board. I’d like to say keep your eyes open for some shots down field but we all know a first down run is looming on most series. The Hawkeye front should be able to overpower Utah St. but Utah St. brought in a lot of new guys over the offseason which should be interesting to see the matchups. One Hawkeye I am excited to watch is wide receiver Diante Vines. He showed flashes last year and should be on track to have a big season. Look for him to get in the endzone on Saturday.
One thing I will be doing every weekend is giving away my favorite Hawkeye bet. Now, take this with a grain of salt as I am usually about a 40% lifetime better, but I am feeling a hot streak this year. If I was in the MLB hitting at 40% I’d be getting record breaking contract deals but in DraftKings eyes I am the “ideal customer.” Not this year DraftKings, not this year. The Hawks team total sits at 34.5 (-115) and I am willing to bet they found the end zone 5 times. Give me the OVER! With that being said, let’s start off the season HOT, and as my buddy Ricky Stanzi once said, “love it or leave it.” Well, I AIN’T LEAVING.
