Iowa athletics are in a bit of a weird spot right now.

The football team is headed to the Pinstripe Bowl, but only 1,000 tickets have been sold.

The basketball team has seemingly deep talent, but a Cy-Hawk loss didn't do much to stem the tide of early disappointment.

All the while, Chad Leistikow, Mark Emmert and Ross Peterson look at bright spots before this weekend's Hy-Vee Classic in Des Moines and also take time to recognize Josey Jewell and Josh Jackson's stellar seasons.

Plus, in a bonus Internet-only segment, the Register's Matthew Bain joins the fray to offer a December Signing Day preview.
