Hawks Move to 11-0 — Bill’s Frigid Trip to Kinnick
So after C.J. Beathard took the final kneel down to seal the deal for another Hawkeye victory on Saturday, I tried to climb up a row for a clearer path to the aisles. It was at that moment that I realized my hip joints didn't work. The frigid temperatures were worth it. I was able to witness Hawkeye history on Saturday as Iowa moved their mark to a perfect 11-0 with a 40-20 victory over Purdue.
I thought I'd share a few pictures from my trip to Kinnick. It didn't really get bad until the second half when the sun disappeared behind the west grandstands and the wind decided to shift and pummel me directly in the face. It didn't help that I was standing on a sheet of ice whose chill eventually claimed victory over my snow boots.
This was the slushy scene as we walked up to the northeast corner of Kinnick. Crews worked through the night to make the field playable.
Unfortunately, the crews were too busy with making the playing field game-ready. Here's a look at our seats when we arrived.
I wanted to take this picture just in case my son never saw me alive again.
The Hawks moving in for a score.
There it is. Big Ten West Division Champs!!
