Free-For-All-Friday: Iowa vs. Illinois, Hawkeye Football Expectations and Facial Hair in November

It’s Friday afternoon and all week, JP and Jerry have been going back and forth on whether Iowa fans should be nervous about Saturday’s matchup with Illinois, how fantastic Lovie Smith’s beard game is and what emotions we should feel about this season in general.

It’s Friday and it’s a free-for-all, baby! Look out weekend, here we come!

Jerry: JP, JP, JP... I’m worried buddy. I’m worried about the ol’ Lovie Smith trap game. I’m worried that the emotional high of taking out Minnesota (something Penn State couldn’t do) and the quick turn around/look ahead at Nebraska leaves the “just keep swimming” Fighting Illini prime to create the most chaos amongst the fanbase we’ve seen to date (and boy has there been some chaos).
