Yes, we have to play this game. No, we don't have to attend. Maybe, we should watch on TV. At least for humor or as a way to pass the time on a drizzly Saturday.
Sam Richardson is back at some immeasurable strength to lead a Cyclone offense that is in desperate need of getting back on track against one of the worst defenses in the country. Tom Farniok is playing his second to last home game in Jack Trice. E.J. Bibbs is trying to become the first tight end to catch every pass thrown in a single football game.
And there's the defense eating a six pack and a pound... each.
This wasn't the match up we expected in August, but it's an excuse to find a glimmer of hope in an otherwise disappointing season. Hold on tight because things are about to get weird.
