More Hawkeye Drama, When Mascots Attack, Taco Bell Gets it Right

By Chris Hassel

It would seem as though Mika’il McCall's career, as an Iowa Hawkeye, is over. The suspended running back posted this on his Facebook page, Christmas night, “I’m not going to Iowa anymore. Looking for a new school.” Several hours after, the post was deleted. I would assume that even if McCall does have a change of heart, and says it was just something he said 'in the moment', Kirk Ferentz will still show him the door. This isn't the kind of thing Ferentz takes kindly to --- especially the way things have been going the last few weeks. 

McCall would be 5th RB to leave in last 2 seasons.
Rumor has it that a Hawkeye defensive back has been sent home from the Insight Bowl, for breaking some kind of team rule. According to reporters on the scene, Ferentz didn't comment on the situation, but he did lead on that something was amiss.  

Oklahoma, just like Iowa, is making its second straight trip to Phoenix. I doubt the Sooners are as excited about this years game, compared to last years. OU whooped up on UConn, in the Fiesta Bowl, last season. This season, they're playing in a mid-level bowl against a mid-level team.

In the meantime, ISU is having a jolly ol' time in NYC. Paul Rhoads is letting his team take in the sights and sounds of the 'Big Apple', leading up to Friday's Pinstripe Bowl. Of course, if ISU lays an egg, he may tighten things up on future bowl trips.  

Look what happened to the Independence Bowl trophy, before the game...Another reason why mascots can't be trusted. 

Capital One Bowl Week? Not only is it more than a week --- it's more than two weeks. Why not just call it Capital One Bowl Season, or something? A week isn't 19 days long. Black History Month doesn't last 2 1/2 months. The year 2011 doesn't carry into 2012. Fix it, please.

Kudos to the folks who put together the new Taco Bell Beefy Crunch Burrito commercial. I was convinced that the dude scraping change together for the .99 cent burrito didn't actually have .99 cents. Upon further review he does. Exactly .99 cents. Good job.

.99 cents will get you a burrito with Flamin' Hot Fritos inside.

Bobbi D.....shut the **** up. Nobody cares what you have to say. It made for good radio. I am sure Chris was an ugly baby and he would be the first to make fun of himself. Get a life Bobbi D and keep putting lipstick on a turd.

Hawkeyes will be lucky not to end up in the ER when they battle Oklahoma. Iowa players need to read about what happened to Custer at Little Big Horn.

Bobbi D needs a life. Take a joke and have a laugh. Holy shit you are pathetic....

Joking about the looks of a baby is not funny, and I certainly will not have a laugh over it!
Your hatred and profanity will solidify your spot in Hell!

Joke's over Bobbi, go away. You've not only beaten a dead horse you've turned it into a flattened and unrecognizable jelly. What I'm saying is you've made your "point" no one cares, no one will ever care, go away.

Bobbi D said...

Thanks for your input Evil. Your spot in hell is confirmed!

I was made fun of as a baby, and that's why I take it so personally. You see, I was born with a fused buttocks. This means my ass cheeks were fused together, essentially rendering my anus useless. I don't even want to get into the problems I have when taking a BM. I hope you feel good about yourselves for making fun of me and other innocent babies!

DO NOT listen to the disgusting person imitating me in the black print. She is a vile impostor and just trying to soil my reputation.
I'm sure that most intelligent discerning people understand this by now.
