Beathard, a redshirt junior who spent the last two years backing up now-Michigan quarterback...

Jake Rudock made his first start at quarterback for Michigan on Thursday night, and things could have gone better. The Iowa graduate transfer threw three interceptions in the Wolverines' 24-17 loss at Utah, the third of which was returned 55 yards for a touchdown that gave Utah a 24-10 lead with 7:58 to go. That sent someone -- we're guessing a frustrated Michigan fan -- to the Internet...

Iowa enters 2015 with questions at WR

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Iowa wide receiver Tevaun Smith drew attention this offseason by catching 41 passes in 60 seconds with just one hand, a feat captured for a video that's been viewed over 200,000 times on YouTube.

Unfortunately for the Hawkeye faithful, that’s the narrative heading into the 2015 season. Even though the embattled head coach’s contract runs through 2020, the conversation surrounding the program this year is whether or not this is finally “it” for arguably one of the best coaches to ever step foot in Iowa City. Instead of debating whether the Hawks will contest for a...
