If one is to try to get familiar with the Big Ten conference from the outside and asks what mediocrity looks like in the conference, one could easily answer with the name of the Iowa Hawkeyes. As much as that has been a long-term trend, the 2014 season may have been the ultimate microcosm of why the Hawkeyes are the Mendoza line of Big Ten football. The Hawkeyes finished the 2014...

Iowa Hawkeyes Football: An early look at the 2015 offense

Following a dismal showing in the TaxSlayer Bowl against the Tennessee Volunteers, there is no question that something needs to change for the Iowa Hawkeye offense, one which grew increasingly stagnant as the 2014 season progressed. The poor performance during the Jan. 2 bowl game was culmination of weeks of almost a full season of disappointing offensive showings. With the beginning...

Big Ten Previews, Pt. 11: Iowa Hawkeyes

Oh, Kirk Ferentz, where do I even begin? After three years of steady regression the Hawkeyes bounced back to an 8-5 record in 2013 (and Hawkeye fans celebrated like they won the dang national title; apparently expectations are low in Iowa City), bouncing back from a 4-8 mark the year before. More importantly, Iowa survived [&hellip (Visited 100 times, 100 visits today) The post...

Iowa football, Ferentz achieve redemption
