Many of our Iowa-based readers are probably already familiar with the work of Scothawk, a local gentleman with a penchant for making really, really cool highlight reels for the Hawkeyes. Doing so was particularly easy in 2002 and 2003, but his work in 2004 was nonpareil--I defy you to keep a dry eye during the season-end tribute.
There's also a section of outstanding individual plays, including Tim Dwight rearranging the Arizona punt returner's chest cavity (mildly illegal). And as goosebumps moments go, what better play than The Kick?
But more to the point, Scothawk has posted a 2007 preview video, and--as usual--it absolutely rocks. It's probably the first non-ironic highlight video with a -10 turnover margin for its favored team, but it actually works in the context of the video (moreso than, say, the ill-advised foray into quotes from 300). Give the man his dues: he can litter the first half of a video with absolutely awful Hawkeye football and still have you fired up for 2007 by the end of it. The video is here, and the editor is Scothawk. Love it.
