Iowa Hawkeyes Football Preview: Defense has chance to be special in 2015

Iowa Hawkeyes football preview week continues to chug along. After looking at the roster makeup of the Iowa offense, we also crunched a few numbers along the way. Where we ended up was with the conclusion that either the Hawkeyes’ offense is more inept than ever or the defense is just that good. What better way to explore that question than take a cold, hard look at just who will...

Iowa Hawkeyes Football Preview: Offense by the Numbers

Earlier today we looked at the 2015 Iowa Hawkeyes offense in terms of which players are doing what and what questions still exist. One thing that is equally important as those players and what is going on is what the numbers tell us is good, bad or indifferent about Iowa’s offensive theme seems to be mediocrity, but do the numbers from last season and those of the returning players...

Iowa’s Brian Ferentz avoids Aaron Hernandez verdict questions

Iowa Hawkeyes head coach Brian Ferentz knew he would face questions about former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez being found guilty of first-degree murder — which means he will spend the rest of his life behind bars without the possibility of parole.

Iowa Jokingly Checked With Davidson To Make Sure Steph Curry Wasn’t Still Eligible

Back in 2008, the sports world was introduced to Davidson guard Steph Curry, who led the Wildcats to the Elite Eight behind his ridiculous sharp-shooting. Curry, as we all know, has since moved on to become one of the best players in the NBA. The Iowa Hawkeyes, who play Davidson in their opening matchup in this year’s NCAA Tournament, are very happy about that fact, apparently...

Iowa Football's Legacy Began in First Meeting with Vols

The Iowa Hawkeyes did not live up to their preseason expectations. Instead of winning the Big Ten West, they went 7-5 and are now 2.5-point underdogs to a 6-6 Tennessee team in the TaxSlayer Bowl (formerly known as the Gator Bowl). Yet expectations follow past greatness and Iowa has now come full circle, for its success was forged when it first played Tennessee 32 years ago. When...
