Hawk Talk

By Don Lund
Sports Writer
For the second week in a row the Hawkeye offense couldn’t find the end zone, but the defense kept them in it until the end. It wasn’t enough, and the Iowa State Cyclones held on for a 9-6 win.
I don’t get it. The defense is supposed to be rebuilding and the offense has a senior quarterback, a new offensive coordinator, a solid line and an All-American tight end, but scores only one touchdown in two games!
Going into the game, Iowa was 40-0 with Kirk Ferentz as head coach when they held a team to under 10 points.

Walkin'

The drive to Meyersdale, Pa., proved especially long and boring. Ohio and Pennsylvania offer no views from the interstate other than a constant wall of pine trees. Our only diversion was the voice of our female avatar contained within the TomTom navigational system I purchased recently. Why I had it on in the first place is a good question as the route is no more complicated than get on Interstate 80 for 400 miles until it turns into Interstate 76 for another 400 miles.

Food For Thought

One thing I won’t miss, once this election is over with, is the atrocious grammar that comes along with all those campaign speeches. I don’t know if the people who write those speeches are that ignorant of standard English, or if they think it makes them sound homespun. Either way, it offends my ear and, I’m sure, the ears of at least half the people who made it through Mrs. Cotter’s eighth grade English classes.
