Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz gave us the best 2014 Media Day soundbite

Big Ten Previews, Pt. 11: Iowa Hawkeyes

Oh, Kirk Ferentz, where do I even begin? After three years of steady regression the Hawkeyes bounced back to an 8-5 record in 2013 (and Hawkeye fans celebrated like they won the dang national title; apparently expectations are low in Iowa City), bouncing back from a 4-8 mark the year before.

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...

While doing that once would have been impressive, Scherff managed to do three reps at that weight, and he made it look pretty easy. This kind of strength is terrifying...
