You’ve heard it before — and it’s almost been sort of a calling card for Iowa since Kirk Ferentz arrived in Iowa City in 1999 — Iowa is a program that thrives while flying under the radar. The Hawkeyes have always played the underdog role quite well, but flying under the radar...

Is stable culture the key to Iowa's hot start?

Plenty of Room Back on the Iowa Hawkeye Bandwagon

Entering the 2015 season, the dark cloud encompassing the Iowa Hawkeye football program for the last several years seemed to be turning into a monsoon. This summer, it was announced that season ticket sales were at a 10-year low and expected to be around 15% lower than 2014.

Even though the embattled head coach’s contract runs through 2020, the conversation surrounding the program this year is whether or not this is finally “it” for arguably one of the best coaches to ever step foot in Iowa City.
