Have you ever wanted the chance to meet the TOC writing staff in person, look them in the eye, and, you know, make sure they don't appear to be a serial killer? Well, your opportunity has arrived.
The precise details are still in the works, but the plan is to do an official TOC tailgate before the Iowa game on October 13. That's a noon kickoff, so you can either (1) start drinking with us at 7:00 a.m.--which should help overcome any initial awkwardness from talking to people you met on the internet--or (2) show up around 10:30 a.m. and then have a built-in excuse to dash off after 15 minutes if things turn out to be WE-ird ("Gotta run, guys! I never miss Zeke's pre-game warmup routine!").
As an added incentive for anyone coming in from out of town, Midnight Madness will be that Friday night. So you can just find a cozy spot somewhere on campus after you leave Breslin, get a few hours of sleep, and be right on site when things kick off first thing Saturday morning.
Stay tuned for more details. We wanted to give everyone a heads up so anyone who's interested can plan accordingly.
