Hawk Talk

Since Thanksgiving was last week, I have a lot of things I’m thankful for.
One is by the time this story is out, I will have come back from Miles City, Mont., with my cousin Robin after we celebrated my mom’s 90th birthday Sunday, Nov. 25.
I’m also thankful the Iowa Hawkeyes get to play in a bowl game so hopefully they can get rid of the sick feeling that came out of Lincoln Friday as Nebraska shut down Iowa, 20-7.
