This is the part of Tuesday where Iowa generally plays a basketball game. An 8-foot beam that fell to the seats of Assembly Hall is what interrupted your scheduled programming.
A security camera in Bloomington caught the metal beam sticking its landing in the lower bowl of the arena, prompting the cancellation of the basketball game that would otherwise have been going on right about now.
After the piece fell, like out of a scene from a Wile E. Coyote cartoon, the schools could not get together and set a date to makeup the lost game. At this hour it is unclear whether or not #15 Iowa will be forced to play prior to their Saturday showdown with #16 Wisconsin.
For many Iowa fans, the contest with the Hoosiers was seen as a potential trap game heading into the matchup with the Badgers. Perhaps the Hawkeyes should take the metallic object as a blessing in disguise, without the potential disaster of getting caught looking ahead in advance of Saturday.
Regardless, time will tell what the two athletic departments decide to do. Unless something drastically changes, it looks like Iowa is safe to look ahead to the Badgers.
