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 […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. – Cohesiveness starts with a conversation. And that may be the untold strength of an Iowa football team with eight returning starters on offense and a veteran defensive line. “They really expect us to be alternative coaches out there, seeing things and understanding concepts,” receiver Kevonte Martin-Manley said. “And when we communicate […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. – The way Quinton Alston sees it, there is no problem. A quick scan of Iowa’s football depth chart shows five potential starters listed for three linebacker positions. That means one of the Hawkeyes’ biggest offseason concerns remains unsettled. Or does it? “I don’t think you can have too many good linebackers,” […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. – A punter from the Sunshine State is living his dream in Iowa. “Luckily for me, I started getting more and more in a groove the longer I was here,” Dillon Kidd said of becoming a Hawkeye starter. “I kind of started to peak throughout camp. Now, I hope I can keep […]
Former Iowa quarterback Cody Sokol has been named the starter at Louisiana Tech. Sokol, a transfer who was once part of a three-way quarterbacking competition that included Jake Rudock and C.J. Beathard, will make his debut Saturday against Oklahoma. According to the Shreveport Times, Tech coach Skip Holtz made the announcement Monday during his weekly […]
Iowa’s defense appears to have taken a hit. Defensive tackle Darian Cooper posted a Facebook update Monday that indicates he’ll miss the coming season: “Surgery was a success (I’m) sorry I couldn’t ride with my brothers this season but ima come back even better next season #glorytoGod #hawkeyes.” The 6-foot-2, 280-pound junior was listed as […]
It’s been 116 years since Northern Iowa beat Iowa in football. But who’s counting? Certainly not the folks wearing purple, who are a 16 1/2-point underdog in Saturday’s 11 a.m. season opener. “They’ve got an outstanding chance to be one of the best teams in the country,” Panthers coach Mark Farley said of the Hawkeyes. “With […]
IOWA CITY, Ia.– It’s easy to see why Iowa’s receivers catch so much flak. Only one Hawkeye wideout, Marvin McNutt, has been selected in the NFL Draft since 2002. McNutt is also the only one to end a season with more than 1,000 receiving yards since 2000 (finishing with 1,315 in 2011). None has earned […]
This is a period of flux for the Big Ten Conference. Rutgers and Maryland have joined, prompting a realignment of divisions. But the nine-game league schedule won’t go into effect until 2016. For now, Big Ten teams only play eight of 13 possible opponents. Ohio State appeared to be a national title contender until quarterback […]
The back end of Iowa’s defense is getting younger. Sophomore cornerbacks Greg Mabin and Desmond King were listed as starters Friday when the Hawkeyes released their latest football depth chart. Redshirt freshman linebackers Bo Bower and Josey Jewell also could get significant snaps when the season kicks off Aug. 30 against Northern Iowa. How about […]
