With Iowa traveling to Indiana Saturday, it's CHAOSWEEK at BHGP. We're joined for this special CHAOSCAST -- or is it PODCHAOST? -- by Kyle Robbins (@kylerrobbins), editor of the highly underrated Crimson Quarry. They damn near got Gameday to come to Bloomington, Indiana earlier this year, but talking with us is the most difficult thing they've done all season.

After a week off, we return to football season by previewing Saturday's Iowa-Maryland game with Alex Kirshner (@alex_kirshner) of Testudo Times, the SB Nation Maryland site. One team is undefeated. The other one just fired its coach and replaced him with Mike Locksley for the rest of the season. Needless to say, there's a stark difference in mood.

We'll get to the Iowa-specific hoops stuff soon, but for now, let's look at the Big Ten. And there's nobody better suited to talk Big Ten hoops in October than Thomas Beindit (@tbeindit), the powerhouse behind BT Powerhouse, SB Nation's Big Ten basketball site. Thomas has been cranking out content all summer in preparation for what could be one of the most interesting Big Ten basketball seasons we've seen. We talk Kenpom's initial numbers, what to make of Indiana and Maryland, and which of the newcomers might make a difference this season.

Saturday gives us the most important Iowa-Northwestern game ever. We're here to preview it with Inside NU's Kevin Trahan, a man good enough at blogging to be blocked by most Minnesota fans. We discuss why Northwestern is trying to make it 1995 again, whether having Gary Barnett as an honorary captain might be a bad idea, and (oh yeah) what's going to happen Saturday.
October 8th, 2015
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.
October 2nd, 2015
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.
