Hlastradamus: Psychic cat takes ‘Cats and the points

Hlastradamus is a homer.No, he doesn’t root for Iowa teams. But he handicaps them with a brilliance normally shown only by prophets.Wait a second. He is a prophet!He correctly said last week that Iowa would fail to cover the spread at Rutgers and Iowa State would indeed cover against San Jose State. Check, and check.Except the seer picked four other games, and got them all wrong...

Hlas: Will receiver attrition catch up to Hawkeyes?

The question here for much of this week: Who will pick up the slack for Iowa at wide receiver now that Matt VandeBerg is out with a broken foot.Before that, it was how high the Cedar would get. The river was running a bad route, but Cedar Rapids played some great red zone defense.Anyway, there are a handful of possibilities regarding the football thing. But none come from the three...

VandeBerg is out indefinitely after injuring his right foot Monday in practice. VandeBerg...

3 and Out

1. The Burden of Dreams — In a lot of ways, Kirk Ferentz and Pat Fitzgerald are football bros. They are former college linebackers. They have a certain amount of hardheadnesses in their approaches to the game. And they have, for all intents and purposes, tenure with their programs.Yes, something could happen and that could be it, but this is Ferentz’s 18th season at Iowa and...

Iowa seeks answers at WR after losing star Matt VandeBerg

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Outside of senior Matt VandeBerg, Iowa's wide receivers have been mostly disappointing this season.

Iowa needs to start scheduling real Power 5 opponents

Iowa took some real grief this past week from guys like Colin Cowherd, but frankly it was well-deserved. The Iowa Hawkeyes can’t say much here – they need to start scheduling real nonconference opponents. Until they do they’ll get little respect.

Mistakes send Hawkeyes out of Top 25 after loss

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Kirk Ferentz has mentioned more than once in his 18 seasons as Iowa's coach that his program doesn't have much margin for error. Last week's stunning loss to North Dakota State showed that it wasn't just coach speak. The Hawkeyes (2-1) went unbeaten in the regular season in 2015 largely because they always seemed to do the little things well. A team like...

North Dakota State beat No. 13 Iowa thanks to game-winning FG as time expires

For some reason, FBS teams continue to schedule North Dakota State. The Bison are an FCS dynasty, and have shown no problem in stepping up and taking on their supposedly superior FBS opponents. Entering today’s game with the No. 13 Iowa Hawkeyes, the Bison were 5-0 in their last five match ups with FBS teams. However, the Hawkeyes were supposed to be different. They were the...
