2012 Gamewatch #6: Iowa vs. Michigan State

Recap of Last Week: The Hawkeyes had a bye week but the players didn’t take advantage of an R & R opportunity.  In fact, three players were arrested most notably starting senior corner back Micah Hyde.  It is still unknown if Hyde will play Saturday.  However, Michigan State’s passing game is not particularly effective and Greg Castillo should start.  Castillo had an interception two weeks ago in the Hawks’ win over Minnesota.

Now to this week…The Hawkeyes have not been great after a bye week and Vandenberg is 2 – 6 as a starting quarterback away from Kinnick.  That said Michigan State plays Michigan next week so it is a perfect opportunity to sneak into East Lansing and take down Sparty.  Michigan State had to rally late last week to edge-by a winless (and hopeless) Indiana team.  I know it may be getting old but the battle for the top of the B1G Ten, especially our “Legends” division, is far from over.  We certainly control our own destiny and the team needs all of our support.  There is no Homecoming and Car-mageddon is over so I expect everyone to be out full force at your favorite Barney’s location this Saturday.

GO HAWKS!!!
