Iowa's starting quarterback job in flux

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Iowa's quarterback situation hasn't been this confusing in a long time. That might not be a bad thing for the Hawkeyes. On Monday, Iowa listed junior Jake Rudock atop the depth chart for Saturday's game at Purdue (2-2). On Tuesday, coach Kirk Ferentz declared Rudock ''day-to-day'' after he hurt his leg in last week's 24-20 victory...

A Disappointing Dose of Reality

That felt like a big thud. A frustrating, upsetting, watching it happen in slow motion in the second half — thud. Pitt started the game strong. James Conner was breaking the vaunted Iowa run defense down. Bouncing right off and through the defenders as they tried to hit and arm tackle him in the first half. A run defense that had averaged allowing under 66 a game had given up 100...

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. The longtime coach has won just under seven games a year since the Hawkeyes’ 11-2 2009 season, but a huge contract makes it difficult for Iowa to think about going in a different direction. One Iowa fan has made a similar long-term decision about Ferentz: he had the coach’s likeness tattooed on...

Pitt DB Comes Away With Easiest Interception Of His Career Vs. Iowa (Video)

So it’s going to be this kind of day for the Iowa Hawkeyes. On the opening drive of Saturday’s Iowa-Pittsburgh game, Hawkeyes quarterback Jake Hudock threw a gem of a pass downfield to wide receiver Damond Powell, who then proceeded to turn what would have been a huge gain into the gift of all gifts for the Panthers.

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. To start the season 1-2 is not the hole expected for a team that before the season, was believed to have a chance to win their conference division. Lose this...

Iowa Keys to the Game

With the Iowa Hawkeyes coming to town, Pitt has a chance to put another nail in the B1G coffin. So far this season the B1G is 1-10 against other Power 5 (PAC-12, SEC, ACC, and Big 12) conferences and there are four more opportunities this weekend to keep the downward trend moving. Headed into the season, Iowa was viewed as a dark horse B1G champ and playoff contender, but early season...

IOWA – PITT Preview 2014

You would think that at the one quarter point in the season we’d have a solid idea of how good the team is and how well the primary players are producing.  It seems not to be the case this season for PITT.  Granted we are 3-0 going into Saturday’s noon game against the Iowa Hawkeyes at Heinz Field but really doesn’t feel like 3-0 given who the wins were over.

Kirk Ferentz ices Iowa State kicker Cole Netten and strategy backfires

Iowa Hawkeyes WR Tevaun Smith’s incredible one-handed TD grab (Video)

Iowa is getting everything it can handle and thensome from FCS in-state rival Northern Iowa. So much so that it needs every last play from Jake Ruddock and the passing game to keep ahead of the visiting Panthers. One such pass came at the exact right time, and gave us perhaps the best play of the weekend in the Big Ten. With Iowa up just 17-13, Ruddock dropped a dime in to junior...
