    Jack won't be a Hawkeye

    Jack's statement and the nature of this headline seem clear enough... but who knows? I bet he doesn't either. As weird as it might seem, maybe he will actually end up at Iowa. And this doesn't necessarily mean that Fran will leave. If there is a strong chance he signs with Iowa and plays for...

    Pick the Starting QB for next season

    I'll go with 2010 season Cam Newton

    Janerious Jackson - RB (Iowa offer) I saw we offered this Georgia high school running back this week. It's not a super impressive offer list... and he's currently still committed to Miami (OH). But I'm very...

    How Iowa matches up against Wisconsin?

    Lol I hadn't seen the total game stats from our Purdue game... we would have a +200 yard rusher and finish with 184 rush yards as a team o_O

    Is This A Bad Stat?

    It is bad. But I care more about: 1) Points per game 2) Yards per play PPG: 13.7 (ranked 124/131) Yards/play: 3.8 (ranked 129/131)

    I think Brecht will be good... and other random thoughts

    Brecht is certainly an impressive athlete. More so than the other couple of guys that were filling in during the first two games (the local Iowa "walk ons"). We sure heard a bit of hype around those guys.. and that there were tough competitors, but sadly, we didn't really get to see it. Petras...

    B1G Portal Adds & Subtractions in Portal

    Very interesting and I agree that our net result might play out favorably versus some others in the Big10. When it comes to both the transfer portal and NIL (the era of NIL), I am really curious to see what kind of data analytics emerge in the coming years. I know there are a few websites...

    Barta and his big mouth..

    I remember watching an interview with Barta on ESPN a few years back, when he gave some comments on the playoff selection committee and how they were approaching the process. I was with a group of friends that included a Gopher, a Badger, and a Northwestern alum. I swear Barta said...

    Dolph needs to retire

    "Touchdown Iowa! Touchdown Iowa" Tyler Goodson bounced it outside, up the sideline, and into the endzone!" "Wait. Check that folks. They're saying he stepped out at the 8 yard line. It will be 1st and Goal for the Hawks".

    Ken O'Keefe Stepping Down as Iowa QB Coach

    It seems like people really connected with KOK and almost always had positive things to say about him. But I do wonder how good he was at his job. Our QB play has been so average/mediocre and the quarterbacks just don't seem to develop that well. I remember an interview with Nate Stanley a few...

    4-Star RB Treyaun Webb Talks New Iowa Football Offer

    Incredible looking prospect. Feels like a slim chance with this one

    Good QBs galore in portal

    We disagree on the definition of talent. For me, talent = potential. That's the potential that Iowa, Georgia, Baylor, Okie St, etc. all saw in him when they offered him in HS. I'm certainly not saying he had the goods ready to contribute at Iowa. According to Kirk, he wasn't

    Hunter Nourzad Looking Forward to Iowa Visit

    These high-level Ivy League guys are no joke. Would be an amazing pickup, would instantly make us a better team

    4-Star TE Mac Markway Looking Forward to Iowa Football Visit

    Junior in HS?? This dude looks ready to play in the big10 right now LOL my goodness

    Tyler Linderbaum Headed to NFL

    What a legend. One of my favorite hawkeyes of all time. Watching the Hawks on TV these past couple seasons, I've spent a lot of time focused in on #65 and not really following the ball. He was a spectacular college player and I wish him the best in the NFL.

    Good QBs galore in portal

    Our QB talent is slightly below where it needs to be. *Slightly, not dramatically lower. At his best, Petras can be a good player. And we saw some really good flashes from Padilla, you can tell he's a gamer. And we've heard good things about deeper backups, excited for Labas and we all knew...

    What is your take on Georgia's tackling skills and technique?

    LOL. You honestly watched Georgia play last night and your takeaway impression is that they're not a good tackling team? I must have been watching a different defense...

    Carver is a wonderful place, but basketball teams could use a new place to play home games.

    Agreed that this is a fun conversation. But a few things that come to mind. 1) CHA has to stay, for a number of reasons. I don't think the wrestling program alone could sustain CHA... but I don't know this and I could be wrong. I just don't think wrastling has the revenue to keep the arena...

    WUWs highlight surprising facts regarding current O-line

    I agree. I think the key there is that it would be difficult for Iowa to simply plug in a mobile quarterback and let it loose. We would need the whole quarterback group (or at least some depth) to support this structure. But I don't fully agree with the idea of being able to depend on a guy...

    WUWs highlight surprising facts regarding current O-line

    I agree with a lot of what's being said, regarding the true "talent" / ability of our O Line in recent years. And I think there's a lot of truth that there's a lack of alignment between the perception that we develop GREAT o-linemen (based on our "style" and under Kirk) and the actual results of...
