Our “citizen journalist” Shannon Pelline just filed some real-time photos from Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City this morning, where she is on hand to watch her nephew and his teammates at Iowa St. play Iowa.
She joked she was an ISU “groupie” last night, meeting with Steele for an hour in the “secret” hotel location before heading back to hers for a good night’s sleep. She reported all-night revelry for the rivalry outside her window, including girls wearing “micro-skirts” in the streets.
Here’s her photos going into the stadium, named after Nile Kinnick, who won the 1939 Heisman Trophy at the University of Iowa. She reported no “friendly” Iowa State tailgaters; all of them were “black and gold.” (That’s a statue of Nile, with corn growing on the stadium grounds).
