LOS ANGELES -- There was just no way to fit the entire Hawkeye Huddle crowd at the LA Convention Center into one photo.
"It's been the one consistent thing in my life. No one can take that away from me ... being a Hawk fan," actor Tom Arnold said Wednesday.
Arnold, Ottumwa native, joined the nearly 20,000 fans for the huddle, which assembled just two days before the Iowa Hawkeyes face off against Stanford.
And speaking of Stanford...
"Stanford's logo is a tree. Come on, they're not even trying," Arnold said.
Iowa fans have waited 25 years for this party, so it’s no surprise the 346,890-square-foot South Hall of the convention center was filled wall-to-wall with black and gold.
