Love the content guys but the sound is a bit of a problem. Sometimes you start talking and almost blow an eardrum out and then instantly fade to hardly being able to hear you. Again love what you’re doing

Holy cow

Whoever the depressing guy is… get your life together. Your 31? Your personal life like your professional life and spiritual life, must be attended to.

Nope, can't listen anymore.

I've been listening since the start of the 2021 football season and am calling it quits with this particular Iowa podcast. The hosts' obsession with bashing Kirk and his son has become so obsessive that it's cringe-worthy. I truly wonder what these guys will talk about once Kirk's career is done.

I understand being frustrated with the offense during the 2022 season, but the defense and special teams are still solid and the team, as of my writing this review, is 4-4 with a good chance to become bowl eligible. I live in the East Lansing area and all I hear about is the Spartans cannot be as bad as they've shown. Couldn't be further from the truth. They are bad. Their offense is arguably worse and less inconsistent, and they have no defense and special teams to speak of. The Spartans are done and, yet, there is more optimism up here about the remainder of their season than these guys discuss involving the Hawkeyes. It is always worse elsewhere.

There's too much negativity and obsession when talking about Kirk. What was once a listenable podcast is nothing more than a sick obsession with Kirk. You're better off finding a different Hawkeye podcast.
