Did the Hawkeyes get too caught up in Final Four talk?

[ 0 ] March 3, 2014

IOWA CITY, IA. — A 13-point halftime lead had turned into a four-point deficit, with just over 9 minutes to play. Iowa’s mojo was missing, shots weren’t falling, defense was missing and heads were down. Carver-Hawkeye Arena was quiet as fans watched a disaster unfolding before their very eyes. A fourth straight loss, this one to […]

Brown: Program hasn’t turned corner; work to be done

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Iowa became bowl-eligible Saturday, which sure beats the alternative. “I don’t know if I’ve ever had a longer holiday break,” Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz said Saturday after a businesslike 38-14 victory over Purdue. “You can only sit in front of the fireplace so long.” A bowl-free 4-8 season leads to a […]

[ 0 ] November 9, 2013

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Jordan Canzeri made a final sprint across the Ross-Ade Stadium sod Saturday afternoon. A television reporter wanted to chat with the sophomore tailback following Iowa’s 38-14 win over Purdue. Canzeri, who rushed for a career-best 165 yards on 20 carries, obliged, then made bee-line for his teammates. “Being together in the swarm, […]

[ 0 ] November 9, 2013

West Lafayette, Ind. —  Iowa wide receiver Don Shumpert wasn’t having the greatest of seasons. The senior lost his starting job to Tevaun Smith, and he’s struggled with a foot injury. But Shumpert played a significant role in Iowa’s 38-14 victory Saturday at Ross-Ade Stadium. “We played good as a team, and I contributed,” Shumpert said. […]

Why Hawkeyes left one side of their helmets black

[ 0 ] November 9, 2013

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Iowa and Purdue football players used their helmets to pay respect to the armed forces Saturday on Military Appreciation Day. The right side of Iowa’s helmet had a red, white and blue tigerhawk to honor all U.S. veterans and those serving in each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. The left […]

Andrew Logue: Iowa defense needs to keep Purdue down

[ 0 ] November 8, 2013

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — A lot of people are talking about Purdue’s offense. It’s not very flattering. The conversation usually goes along the lines of, “Hey, did you know the Boilermakers haven’t taken a snap inside an opponent’s 20-yard line since September?” They might also mention Purdue is averaging just 11.5 points per game (third […]

Rick Brown: Can’t blame Ferentz for being cautious about Purdue

[ 0 ] November 5, 2013

IOWA CITY, Ia. — Promise. That fuels Purdue football coach Darrell Hazell these days. It’s been a season long on agony of defeat and short on thrill of victory for the Boilermakers in Hazell’s first season as coach. Purdue is 1-7 overall, 0-4 in the Big Ten and been outscored in its last two games […]
