The alternate uniforms trend hit a new low, or high, Tuesday night. Michigan played basketball, dressed head-to-toe, as highlighters.

Iowa and Iowa State’s football recruiting classes are ranked right next to each other. Both are below 50. That’s unusually low for the Hawkeyes, but not surprising. Iowa lacks energy and buzz around the program right now…

Why can’t I find an autographed Nile Kinnick football in the basement? Or a Picasso painting? I’d settle for an old game of electric football. I miss the sound of the vibrating metal field…
