Iowa’s 13th-best football win of the past 50 years

[ 0 ] August 17, 2014

Iowa’s surprising 1981 march to the Rose Bowl included a defensive masterpiece. Wisconsin had an edge in that race to Pasadena when it hosted Iowa on Nov. 14, 1981. Madison had been awash in Rose Bowl hype the week of the game. But the Hawkeyes jumped out to a 17-0 halftime lead, on a Tom […]

[ 0 ] February 22, 2014

IOWA CITY, Ia. – Home sweet home? Not exactly. No. 15 Iowa lost at Carver-Hawkeye Arena for the third time in its last four Big Ten basketball games Saturday, following a script that has become painfully repetitive. Stretches of uninspired play on defense, and an inability to score when it mattered most, led to a […]

[ 0 ] January 5, 2014

MADISON, Wis. – This was no slow burn. This was full eruption, in finger-flailing, spit-flying, suit-jeopardizing glory. Shortly after the Big Ten Network cameras drifted to commercial about eight minutes into the second half Sunday night against No. 4 Wisconsin, Iowa basketball coach Fran McCaffery came unglued at midcourt.

It was sweet redemption for players and coaches who endured a 4-8 debacle in 2012. It was also a moment that will alter people’s view […]

Rick Brown: Wisconsin’s jet sweep stands between Hawkeyes and bowl game

[ 0 ] November 1, 2013

IOWA CITY, Ia. – When he sees Wisconsin’s jet sweep formation Saturday, the mind of James Morris will go into overdrive. “Is this going to be an inside play or an outside play?” Iowa’s senior middle linebacker said, talking through his options. “When they run that play there’s the sense that it could be both. […]

Jake Rudock may need to air it out against Wisconsin

[ 0 ] November 1, 2013

IOWA CITY, Ia. – Is Jake Rudock ready for takeoff? He’s proven himself a capable quarterback, but Iowa’s offense needs a lift. The Hawkeyes’ once powerful ground game is sputtering, and Saturday’s 11 a.m. showdown against Wisconsin might call for more-than-usual aerial navigation. The Badgers (5-2, 3-1 Big Ten Conference) are allowing an average of […]

There’s an extra prize for beating Wisconsin on Saturday

[ 0 ] October 31, 2013

IOWA CITY, Ia. – The Heartland Trophy was introduced less than a decade ago. So why does it seem like a long, lost relic to members of the Iowa football program? “If I saw it, I would remember it,” defensive tackle Carl Davis said, “but I haven’t seen it since my freshman year.” The big, […]

Rick Brown: Wisconsin’s fake punt in 2010 remains painful memory

[ 0 ] October 29, 2013

IOWA CITY, Ia. – Matt Lepay knew a fake punt was in Badgers’ bag of tricks that October day in Kinnick Stadium. But with less than 7 minutes to play, facing a fourth-and-4 from its own 26 and 10th-ranked Wisconsin trailing No. 13 Iowa, 30-24, in a key 2010 Big Ten clash at Kinnick Stadium? “As […]
