Barkley Hill leaves Iowa, enrolls at UNI

[ 0 ] May 28, 2014

Barkley Hill is heading back to Cedar Falls. The sophomore running back is leaving the Iowa football program, according to a statement released today by the university. And Northern Iowa – located less than 2 miles from his former high school – is the most likely landing spot. Panthers coach Mark Farley confirmed Hill is […]

Iowa football: An analysis of the running backs

[ 0 ] August 19, 2013

Chris White has reason to be excited about the depth at running back on the Iowa football team, especially since freshman LeShun Daniels Jr. is in the mix for playing time. But the first-year Hawkeyes assistant also has reason to be cautious about his optimism given how past circumstances have changed in a hurry. “I think […]

Hawkeyes appear strong at this position on offense

[ 0 ] August 9, 2013

IOWA CITY, Ia. — Iowa’s running back position, hampered by injuries and defections in recent seasons, is shaping up as a position of depth. Just ask Damon Bullock, the Hawkeyes’ second-leading rusher last year. “Last year, coming in, we didn’t have much experience,” Bullock said. “This year is going to be much better.” Iowa returns […]

Hawkeyes jittery about QB, receiver positions as practice begins

[ 0 ] August 4, 2013

IOWA CITY, Ia. It’s hardly a bold statement to say the offense will have to significantly improve from last year if the Iowa football team expects to rebound from a 4-8 record. There are two major questions on offense, neither of which have answers, as football practice in Iowa City kicks off today: No. 1: […]

Iowa’s Barkley Hill out for season with torn ACL

[ 0 ] August 21, 2012

First Jordan Canzeri. Now Barkley Hill. Maybe there is something to what some people call an Iowa tailback curse. Four months after Canzeri, the expected starter, underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL, Hill will have the same procedure following an injury suffered on what likely would have been his final carry of last Saturday’s […]

Another rough day for Iowa running back position

[ 0 ] August 18, 2012

IOWA CITY, Ia. – The Twitter blew up late Saturday afternoon when word spread that Iowa running back Barkley Hill had to leave Kinnick Stadium on a golf cart after injuring something associated with his left leg. The general theme: Here we go again. The true freshman from Cedar Falls was hit while running into […]

Iowa football: Breaking down the offense

[ 0 ] August 18, 2012

All you Iowa fans pleading for offensive change …you got your wish. Probably. The Hawkeyes were going to utilize fancy passing formations, anyway, under new offensive coordinator Greg Davis. Now that the running back position is even more uncertain than it was a month ago – don’t blink. “We’re not going to throw it 80 […]

Iowa football: New facilities, polished plays, refurbished mentality

[ 0 ] August 18, 2012

IOWA CITY, Ia. — Traffic-snarling construction outside Iowa’s football facility proved more than a summer detour for recruits and others visiting the state’s most visible program. The hustle-and-bustle of demolition, followed by deafening sounds that accompany major building were metaphors for the Hawkeyes’ vision of the future – outside the program and within. Beyond 83-year […]

Iowa football: A thin tailback position just got thinner

[ 4 ] July 29, 2012

Now what? Sophomore Damon Bullock – with a career that includes just 31 rushing yards — is the only one remaining on Iowa’s two-player tailback depth chart released at last week’s Big Ten Conference media days.        Who’s No. 2 after De’Andre Johnson’s Sunday suspension? Good question. Transfer Andre Dawson wasn’t listed on the depth […]

Iowa football: Which true freshman running back will emerge?

[ 2 ] June 2, 2012

Greg Garmon or Barkley Hill. . . Which true Iowa football freshman running back will rush for the most yards? “We’ll encourage both of those players to get ready and do the best they can this summer,” coach Kirk Ferentz said during a press conference before the final spring scrimmage. “We’ll evaluate them in August […]
