It's been a rough year for the Iowa Hawkeye football team. Sure, the team sits at 6-1 and in first place in the Big Ten West.

Iowa fans shouldn't be too offended. It is possible that Rodgers was just giving Ty Schmidt of the Pat McAfee show a hard time for being an Iowa Hawkeye fan. Someone ask Aaron how Cal football is doing this season. Anyone?
