Iowa Hawkeyes Invade Soldier Field This Fall

I have high hopes for the Fighting Illini football program this year, but I understand that we won't be winning 8 games this season and we need to take one step at a time. Coach Zook probably doesn't want to undermine what he's doing by taking on an in-state school like Northern Illinois (even though Henry would probably love that...) because of the possibility of a loss and a setback that could hurt recruiting. 

That's fine and I understand. What I don't understand is how we're letting the friggin Iowa Hawkeyes come into Soldier Field and play those Huskies on our turf. Talk about great Chicago PR and recruiting "juice" for Coach Ferentz. That's what we need to be doing. Schedule something up there and get us in front of more kids. Isn't that why the hoops team played those moldy games at the Sears Center in Hoffman Estates? 

Come on, Ron Guenther. Get aggressive with the scheduling. Going to St. Louis for a match-up with Mizzou doesn't count.
