Barstool Sports College Football Show is Coming to Iowa City
Whether you love or hate Barstool sports, you can't deny the amount of influence they have on college students around the country. You may be familiar with the founder of Barstool, Dave Portnoy, also known as El Presidente, as he claims the University of Iowa is one of his favorite places to visit to watch football games. More on this later... You may also remember the last time he visited, he wasn't the biggest fan of Casey's Pizza.
He's a polarizing figure to where anything he does ends up going viral. He has 3.4 million followers on Instagram, 2.7 million on Twitter, and is the host of the popular barstool podcast "The Dave Portnoy Show." He spoke about his upcoming trip to Iowa in a recent episode of his show, he mentions his love for Iowa City and his past experience with the Hawkeye Express. *LANGUAGE WARNING*
It turns out the Barstool College Football Show will be in Iowa City this Saturday to watch the Hawkeyes take on the Cyclones at 3 p.m.
Portnoy, along with barstool personalities, Big Cat, Kayce Smith, and Brandon Walker will be in Iowa, talking everything about college football, before they get to enjoy one of the cooler rivalries in college sports. During the show, you can expect them each to give out their predictions on who's going two win college football games going on around the country and give out their gambling picks.
If you're unfamiliar with Barstool Sports, you should know they have such a big impact on college students all across America. In particular, college guys. If you've ever heard the term "Saturdays are for the boys" you can thank Barstool, as they made a killing selling merch with the infamous quote amongst college students. I'd guess, at just about every major college in America, you can find a Saturdays Are For the Boys Flag hanging up, in at least one frat house.
For a company as big as Barstool to be back in Iowa and showing up for one of the biggest college football games of the season, you can only imagine how crazy the fans will be before, during, and after the game. The game itself will have Iowa City going nuts. Adding in the fact that Barstool Sports will be on hand... if you're in Iowa City on Saturday, plan for a lot of traffic.
