Iowa Hawkeyes WR Tevaun Smith’s incredible one-handed TD grab (Video)

Iowa is getting everything it can handle and thensome from FCS in-state rival Northern Iowa. So much so that it needs every last play from Jake Ruddock and the passing game to keep ahead of the visiting Panthers. One such pass came at the exact right time, and gave us perhaps the best play of the weekend in the Big Ten. With Iowa up just 17-13, Ruddock dropped a dime in to junior...

Iowa Wants Fans to Set Their VCR’s for Saturday’s Game (Photo)

Sometimes, you’ve got to try a little bit harder when you want to avoid stereotypes. Unfortunately for the Iowa Hawkeyes, they basically fell right into the stereotypes generally associated with the state. The program sent out a reminder for fans to tune into their season-opener this Saturday against Northern Iowa and well, wanted fans to make sure they had their VCR’s ready...

Big Ten Breakdown: Iowa Hawkeyes Full Preview

Iowa Hawkeyes head coach Kirk Ferentz is something of a paradox. He has been the head coach of the Hawkeyes since 1999. In that time, he has compiled a 108-79 record, which is good for 39th-best over that stretch. That's not bad, especially when one considers the disadvantages—mostly as it concerns recruiting—that Iowa has to contend with. He has also been the best—not...

Video: Iowa Posts An Awesome Video Of Its Summer Workouts

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

I’ve been to five college football media days thus far and I’m so nauseated that I will not be attending the sixth one that I had planned. You know the  kinds of phrases: “focused on our execution” “got to stay focused” “working hard” “we’re excited about…..” “comes down to making plays” “trying to get better everyday” “improving any way I can to...

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. More importantly, Iowa survived [&hellip (Visited 100 times, 100 visits today) The post...

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...
