Wine: Get Used To It, Hawkeye Fans

Jan. 22, 2005

Football question: What does Iowa have in common with Southern California, Oklahoma and Georgia?

Answer: They are the only four schools that have finished in the Top Ten in each of the last three seasons.

But you knew that, didn’t you? Yeah, sure. USC, Oklahoma, Georgia and Iowa — the cream of college football.

Might seem a little strange to see the Hawkeyes included with Southern Cal and Oklahoma, who played for the national title this season, plus Georgia, a power from the Southeastern Conference. But that’s the way it is.

As the saying goes, get used to it.

Iowa fans should be getting accustomed to success after seeing their favorite team post its third straight No. 8 national finish and win its second consecutive January bowl game.
