[ 0 ] July 25, 2014

A reversal in record led some Iowa football fans to flip their outlook. A year ago, the Hawkeyes were coming off a 4-8 fall. In 2013, they went 8-4 during the regular season. And Friday, Iowa was picked to finish second in the Big Ten’s West Division, according to a media poll conducted by the […]

Andrew Logue: Hawkeyes lacking killer instinct

[ 0 ] September 15, 2013

We’re starting to notice a couple of things with this year’s Iowa football team. The Hawkeyes have shown plenty of moxie the past three weeks, but not much of a killer instinct. We’ve seen them bob and weave. We’ve seen them trade jabs. We’re still not sure if they can land a haymaker. “That’s something […]

Insight Bowl pick reflects Hawks’ fallen stock

[ 4 ] December 5, 2010

Those who dream big about Iowa football had the general location right this summer when they visualized where the Hawkeyes would finish the season. The wishful thinkers pictured a break from Iowa’s recent, near-annual postseason journey to Florida and a return trip to the desert. They got the state right. The Hawkeyes are headed back […]

Harty: Iowa vs. Missouri; it’s about time

[ 8 ] December 5, 2010
