The Huskers have come prepared.  In an obvious attempt to mock the Iowa big man, a notorious eye gouger, three Nebraska students are sporting protective eye goggles for the Huskers’ game against the Hawkeyes this afternoon.  Check it out:  Students in the @HuskerRedZone...

Iowa Making Strong Push For Top Kicker Quinn Nordin With Personalized Letters, Most Wanted Posters

Class of 2016 kicker Quinn Nordin supposedly has his collegiate decision down to either Penn State or Iowa – at least that’s what he told the guys over at Black Shoe Diaries last week. It looks like the Hawkeyes are making a hard push to land his services. Saturday, Nordin tweeted a photo of all of the mail he received from the Hawkeyes this week. It includes numerous hand-written...

Iowa Offensive Tackle Brandon Scherff Can Move Some Serious Weight

Brandon Scherff's story is not unusual. A 3-star recruit coming out of high school, he was not heavily recruited, but was sought after by the two biggest schools in state, Iowa and Iowa State. Five years (thanks to a redshirt year) and 38 starts (26 at left tackle) he is expected to be one of the first offensive linemen to come off the board. With size and strength like his I can...

Buy This Iowa Hawkeyes Tailgating Creeper Van — $2,500

  I love an honest Craigslist tailgating van/RV/trailer listing. This is probably the best listing I’ve seen all year because it’s honest and pretty much makes you want to buy an Iowa tailgating van that you don’t actually need, but you want to relive your college days in the thing. Just imagine rolling down the highway to Nebraska in a 1984 Ford with “scratch where it...

Big Ten West Provides Window of Opportunity for Iowa and Illinois

With the 2015 recruiting classes largely finished across the Big Ten, teams and coaches can now focus on offseason conditioning and preparations for the season ahead. It also means that the rosters are largely set and preseason prognostications can now begin in earnest. But what stands out after a tumultuous two months from the end of the regular season to National Signing Day? The...

Video: Michael Wilbon Suggests Iowa’s Opponents Put A Football Player On The Floor To Take Out Adam Woodbury

Iowa center Adam Woodbury has become college basketball’s biggest villain over the past couple of weeks, as the 7-foot big man has poked three different opposing players in the eye.  Woodbury has yet to be punished by the Big Ten for his antics, deemed unintentional by his coach, Fran McCaffrey, who refused to answer a question on the topic following the Hawkeyes’ game against...

When will the Big Ten finally suspend Adam Woodbury for his eye pokes? (VIDEOS)

Vine Iowa’s Adam Woodbury has made the eye poke his thing, I guess.  He did it again Sunday to Maryland’s Melo Trimble.  It’s a dirty move and one that referees surely think is accidental, if they notice it at all.  Here is the play from Sunday. And those of you who might think I’m being too tough on the 7’1″ junior center don’t know the whole story. Sunday’s...

Videos: Iowa’s Adam Woodbury Has Become College Basketball’s Eye Poker

Something needs to be done about Adam Woodbury, Big Ten.  During the first half of Iowa’s game against Maryland Sunday afternoon, the Hawkeyes’ big man poked Terrapins’ freshman guard Melo Trimble in the eye. Trimble collapsed to the floor and had to leave the game for several minutes as his eye swelled up. No foul was called during the action, but the referees charged Woodbury...

Dan Dakich will get extra security in Iowa on Saturday

No announcer has had a wilder month than ESPN college basketball analyst Dan Dakich.  First there was his radio feud with WEEI in Boston that raged during AFC Championship Week.  Then came a brief dust-up with Iowa basketball coach Fran McCaffery after Dakich called out Hawkeye center Adam Woodbury as “gutless” for poking the eye of two Wisconsin players.  On, and in between...

Best returning players for Iowa: Desmond King

Iowa cornerback Desmond King is a great player who is expected to lead the Hawkeye defense. Over the next couple of weeks, I will write about who I think the most important returning players are for the Iowa football team. The Iowa Hawkeyes aren’t going to be a very talented team, but they do have a couple standouts. This week: Desmond King Just like the Iowa football team, there...

Soon this website will be nothing but stories about people who hate Dan Dakich. After his cross-country radio feud with WEEI in Boston, and being the subject of an Iowa patrolman’s Facebook rant that has him under investigation, the ESPN college basketball analyst is in the middle of a brouhaha once more.  And again, it’s someone in the Hawkeye State that is angry with Dakich...

Can Iowa Hawkeyes be legit Big Ten basketball title contenders?

Raise your hand if you had the Ohio State Buckeyes sitting in the middle of the Big Ten standings and the Iowa Hawkeyes rising to the top as conference play began? Yet, after the Hawkeyes took care of visiting Ohio State, 76-67, that’s exactly where we stand. Iowa is just one of three teams standing at 4-1 after that win, but are part of a logjam of five teams with one loss. Those...

Oh, Kirk Ferentz, where do I even begin?

So, about those Iowa Hawkeyes…

As we get closer to the start of the season you may be taking a closer look around the Big Ten to see how this conference is going to shape out. Ohio State is my team to beat in 2014, and Michigan State is right there in the hunt as defending champion. We know Penn State is ineligible, but I think a 10-win season is a high ceiling that is not exactly at Sistine Chapel height. I cannot...
