Now, before you go crazy and start questioning the meaning of life, let me assuage your fears. Long-time readers know of my affinity for Steve Alford's Hair Gel, the immensely entertaining Iowa basketball blog. But there isn't always that much news on Iowa, and it soon became obvious that we were each covering the same material in almost the same style (for example, take a look at our basketball coaching short list, compared with their short list, published within 12 hours of each other). The fact is, you deserve better. As an Iowa fan, you deserve to have all the news covered with wit and irreverence in one place.
That place is The Hawkeye Compulsion, the new joint venture of HS and The Hairgel. Four writers, one topic, and updated far more frequently than my little old corner of cyberspace. And the topics I don't really follow (like recruiting) will likely be covered by someone who cares far more about such things. So fear not, loyal readers. I have not left you.
It's been a fun (almost) year here, and thanks for reading. I'll hopefully see ya at my new place.
