These are those moments that defy words. They defy even pictures. Thankfully, we have video.
These are moments when I—one of the most stoic people in the world—have jumped up and down and high-fived people I had never met before.
All things considered, it has been a great decade to be a Hawkeye fan. In fact, technically speaking, the Hawks have had more wins this decade than in any previous decade of the football program's existence.
Of course, there have been more games this decade than any previous decade, but that doesn't diminish the accomplishment (the Hawks of the '80s had the best decade winning percentage of all time with this decade coming in a close second).
As we look towards the new decade there will be a lot of changes. Nebraska will be on the annual schedule, and it would appear that the border rival game will become a Friday-after-Thanksgiving tradition.
There will be Big Ten championship games, at least a few of which we can hope Iowa finds itself involved in.
Moreover, Iowa's yearly game against Wisconsin will no longer be yearly, and the Iowa State game is also in danger of getting eliminated.
Either way, we can only hope the next decade will treat us to just as many highlights and memories.
