Just because we spent the last two weeks talking about wrestling and football doesn't mean we forgot about basketball season. On the contrary, we've been following it closely, mostly by cracking jokes in Steve Batterson's online chats and watching Storminspank's reports on Hawkeye Nation and at his own blog. Stormy joins us this week, as we get the spring 2008 incarnation of the BHGBand back together and churn out our greatest hits.

Why talk about Sylvia Plath when there's plenty of Emily Dickinson? Why discuss the potential for nuclear holocaust when the world keeps providing us with Lane Kiffin LOL? To the same end, we're ignoring basketball for another week in favor of something positive and hopeful: 2010 Iowa football. The Gazette's Marc Morehouse becomes our first-ever repeat guest, reprising his role from Episode 1 (only with far better recording equipment, so that you can actually hear what he says) to discuss the potential August depth chart. Our usually succinct 30 minutes stretched to 45, and in order to get this out quick, we've foregone our usual editing process. Be forewarned.

In the wake of Iowa's victory at the National Duals in Cedar Falls, this week's podcast gets its wrestle on. Andy Hamilton, who covers Iowa football and wrestling for the Iowa City Press-Citizen, joins us to examine this weekend's dual with Oklahoma State, the remainder of the Big Ten season, and the paranormal effects of Borschel's moustache. No stun guns were used in this podcast, as The Mountie did not appear.

This is the one where we discuss the Orange Bowl, where the Hawkeyes overran Georgia Tech. Sherman would have been proud. We also talk about where this team fits in the hierarchy of Iowa teams of the last 30 years, and whether Kirk Ferentz has offically passed Hayden Fry. There's even some time for random screaming about basketball at the end.
