It's Illinois Week, which means it's time to talk about Illinois with our good friend Tom Fornelli (@tomfornelli), former proprietor of The Champaign Room and current chronicler of the nation's worst football for CBS Sports. Because it's Illinois Week, we talk some about Illinois. Because it's Tom, we also talk about former WCW wrestler Hugh Morris' alter egos and the USC-Washington game being played while we recorded.

We get prepped for Saturday's gigantic Iowa-Wisconsin game with Jake Kocorowski (@JakeKocoB5Q) of Bucky's 5th Quarter, the SB Nation Wisconsin site. Jake knows two things especially well: Wisconsin football and pro wrestling. So you can see where this is going.

Goodbye Hate Week. Hello Pitt Week! And the beauty of Pitt Week is that Pitt Twitter is one of the most reasonable, hilarious, self-deprecating Twitter communities of all. Podcasting with guys like Mike (@85mf), who joins us this week, is what we will miss most about Pitt dropping off the schedule after this year.

Welcome to Hate Week, and as in Hate Weeks past, we discuss Saturday's game with KnowDan (@WRNLKnowDan) from Wide Right & Natty Lite. Yes, yes, he may be a dirty, dirty Cyclone fan, but he's also probably a ginger or something. Maybe an engineer. A gingeneer, of sorts.

It's the last week before game week, which means only one thing: It's time for Theory of Iowa Football with The Gazette's Marc Morehouse. Topics on your syllabus include: Why eight wins every season might make Brian Ferentz the next head coach, how Iowa intends to change everything without changing anything, and how all of this probably depends on a decision made by the Board of Regents next month. I apologize for the audio difficulties -- we were having Skype connection problems off and on throughout -- but it's worth the listen nonetheless.

It's a two-parter this week. We're first joined by Meg Rife from the University of Iowa Children's Hospital to talk about this year's Touchdowns for Kids effort. Meg is followed by Rick Brown from the Des Moines Register, who wants to give students free football tickets and is a bit worried about the offensive line. In other words, he's one of us.

As promised, here's Viewer -- well, Listener/Reader -- Mail. The podcast went almost two hours, so we split it in two. You get them both now. Happy birthday, America.

After what can only be called the most successful recruiting month in the last decade of Iowa football, we felt it was time to reconvene our semiannual recruiting Creepycast. For this edition, we're joined by Andrew Kulha (@Hawkeyes247), recruiting analyst for Voice of the Hawkeyes, the Iowa 247 Sports site. We recap what has happened, preview what's coming next, and try to get to the bottom of that whole star ranking thing.
