IOWA FOOTBALL AND ALPHABET CITY IN THE '90s: EVERYONE'S SAD AND MOST OF THEM DIE

Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

You didn't think we were going to make it through Spencer's week off without this one happening, did you?
Anyways, I'm probably fired.  I don't have the Hoda connections Ryan does.  *shrug* WORTH IT.


Today's selection comes from the 1996 smash musical "RENT", which became a tremendous, record-breaking hit only after the tragic death of its creator.  So buck up, Penn State fans - it could happen to you!


Iowa Football Sleeping


five hundred seventy one thousand four hundred dollars
five hundred seventy one thousand dollars, oh dear
five hundred seventy one thousand four hundred dollars
how much did Kirk earn for each win last year


Beat Purdue, beat Ball State
Beat IU but lost the Cy-Hawk

In fumbles, in ennui, in complaints to your friends
Five hundred seventy one thousand four hundred dollars
How do you measure, a year of Ferentz

how about puuuuuuuunts?
how about puuuuuuuunts
how about puuuuuuuunts
measure in puuuuuuuunts

FROM FOURTH AND ONE
from fourth and 1

five hundred seventy one thousand four hundred dollars
sixteen years in with the same old game plan
five hundred seventy one thousand four hundred dollars
How do you measure the wins of an Iowa man?

In truths that we know
But we try to avoid
In the win over Pitt, or the loss of the Floyd?

There's that huge buyout
So this story never ends
Try to deal with
another year in the life of Ferentz

Remember the puuuuuuuunts
(Oh, you got to, you got to remember the punts)
Remember the puuuuuuuuunts
(Field position is a gift from up above)
Remember the punts
(Share punts, muff punts, down punts)
Measure in punts
(Measure, measure your life in punts)

Seasons of puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuunt
FROM FOURTH AND ONE
(Measure your life, measure your life in punts)
