IOWA CITY, Ia. – Everyone loves it when a local kid makes good. If you’re an Iowa football fan, you may be infatuated with linebacker Bo Bower. If you’re rooting for Ball State, quarterback Ozzie Mann is your guy. Neither was a sure starter when summer workouts began, yet both will have a starring role […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. – The Iowa coaches were planning to shuffle their returners. They just didn’t expect Mark Weisman to field the season’s opening kickoff and bring it back 50 yards against Northern Iowa. “When Adam Cox got hurt, they moved me back there,” said Weisman, a 6-foot, 240-pound running back. “I’m not supposed to […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. – Is the Iowa offense in the midst of an identity crisis? Saturday’s season-opening football victory against Northern Iowa featured more variety than we’re used to from coach Kirk Ferentz. And to be honest, it was a little unsettling. “I wouldn’t call it a crisis if the receivers are making more plays […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. – Faith in Iowa’s passing game seems fleeting for now. Midway through the first half of Saturday’s season-opening victory against Northern Iowa, a former Hawkeye receiver began expressing his frustrations via Twitter. “C’mon Ruddock [sic] trust the (receivers) down the field,” Marvin McNutt tweeted, in reference to quarterback Jake Rudock.

IOWA CITY, Ia. – The hair still remaining on the head of Northern Iowa football coach Mark Farley found itself in jeopardy Saturday. The Panthers held a stunning 15-0 lead in penalties before Iowa was flagged for its first with 12 minutes, 35 seconds to play in 31-23 loss at Kinnick Stadium. Northern Iowa finished […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. Quinton Alston was expecting a few glitches. “There was a lot of guys getting onto the field for the first time,” Alston said of his fellow Iowa linebackers. “There was a lot of guys on the field (Saturday) who weren’t even here last year, or redshirted.” That lack of experience was exploited […]
Tevaun Smith thought he scored after a handoff but only realizing he stepped out of bounds with a 35-yard gain.
IOWA CITY, Ia. – Admit it, this is sort of fun. When the college football season kicks off at 11 a.m. today in Kinnick Stadium, you’ll have more than a passing interest, because the outlook seems rosy for Iowa and Northern Iowa is a familiar thorn. “There’s something about playing somebody inside your state that […]
