First Impressions
The annual Black and Gold Blowout was today. The Hawkeyes split into two teams to scrimmage in front of 6,532 eager fans at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. It was the first chance for many of us to see new guys like Doug Thomas, Carlton Reed, Alex Thompson, and J.R. Angle. I showed up early to get a good seat and get my basketball fix. The teams broke down like this:

Jeff HornerPierre Pierce
Greg BrunnerErek Hansen
Carlton ReedMike Henderson
Doug ThomasAlex Thompson
J.R. AngleJustin Wieck
Jack BrownleeJack Brownlee

Huh? Iowa has two guys named Jack Brownlee? Nope, he started out with the Gold squad but switched over at half time to give the five-man Black team some breathers. Anyway, Gold beat Black, 69-62. Here are some random things I saw while I was there.

All in all, it was a fun morning/afternoon. I got to see my first basketball game in way too many months, and I got a first glimpse at some current and future Hawkeye stars. Next game is home on Wednesday against Upper Iowa University.
