Hello Hawkeye fans, and welcome to the new Hawk Central.
It’s amazing that the Hawk Central website is now celebrating its 10th anniversary. The site — and all the Hawkeye sports teams — have come a long way in the past 10 years.
Those of you who are “charter members” of the site will recall that the Press-Citizen created Hawk Central in 2000 to be a destination for all of the Press-Citizen’s Hawkeye news and commentary. The site has undergone regular updates and changes over the years, but none quite as big as this one.
Starting today, the newly redesigned Hawk Central is now a joint venture of the Iowa City Press-Citizen and The Des Moines Register. The Register’s extensive Hawkeye coverage will now appear alongside that of the Press-Citizen. Together, we believe we will have the most comprehensive Hawkeye news website on the Internet.
Those of you who are used to visiting desmoinesregister.com and press-citizen.com for your Hawkeye news, fear not. Our Hawkeye headlines will appear on both sites, but when you click to read them, you’ll be coming to Hawk Central.
Hawk Central is powered by a separate content management system from that of the desmoinesregister.com and press-citizen.com. As a result, you must re-register as a user of Hawk Central in order to participate in our forums or to leave comments on stories. Registration takes just a minute.
As it has been for the past 10 years, Hawk Central remains a work in progress and will continue to evolve. We welcome your feedback on the site and our coverage.
