Photo: An Iowa Fan Put His Dedication To The Program In Ink With This Kirk Ferentz Tattoo

Disgruntled Iowa fans aren’t thrilled with Hawkeyes’ head coach Kirk Ferentz.

Open Thread: Iowa-Pitt

Got to get moving. It is not quite dark, but the morning gloom is only beginning. The drive to the Burgh awaits. No idea how this game breaks. Pitt should be able to win this game, but this has something of a must win for Iowa.

How my dad taught me to be an Iowa fan

  My dad was such a Hawkeye fan that he had Herky on the back of his gravestone. My dad was probably the biggest sports fan that I have ever known. He loved playing it, talking about it, watching it, and coaching it. He passed on that same love of sports to my brothers and me. He would come home from work and we would go right outside and play soccer, football, baseball, basketball...
