Super Bowl Allegiances

Who will you root for on Super Bowl Sunday—the Packers or the Steelers? I’m cheering for the Hawkeyes.

I followed college football more closely than ever this past season, but my interest in the sport hasn’t yet extended to the pros. I usually revert back to my childhood method for picking favorite NFL teams (choosing the city I have the most connection to), but I’m equally indifferent towards Pittsburgh and Green Bay.

Steelers, I love how you inspired the Hawkeye black and gold uniforms. Packers, thanks for taking on former Iowa tackle Bryan Bulaga (2007-10) and former Iowa offensive line coach Joe Philbin (1999-2002).

I’m not picking sides this year, but may the best team win. I’m sure Super Bowl back judge and former Hawkeye Scott Helverson (1981-85), 86BBA, will be fair.
