There’s no beaker-filled lab or gaggle of MIT graduates capable of determining whether Iowa has the best set of football linebackers in the country. When a topic is more subjective than science, answers prove elusive and debatable. Let me ask it this way, though: Is there another group you’d draft first? No collection of linebackers […]
Iowa offensive lineman Brandon Scherff did two things on Monday that speak about who he is as a person. I wouldn’t have thought any less of Scherff if he had chosen to pursue an NFL career instead of returning for his senior season, but I respect him more for staying in school. Scherff was considered […]
With all due respect to the 17 high school seniors who make up the Iowa football team’s 2014 recruiting class, the most important recruit already is on the Iowa roster and will remain so for another year. All-Big Ten left tackle Brandon Scherff made the choice for which Hawkeye fans were hoping by deciding to […]
How lineman Brandon Scherff gave Iowa an early Christmas present.
Anthony Jennings will start against Iowa on Jan. 1 in Tampa.
LSU starter Zach Mettenberger is out with a torn ACL.
There will be talking among Iowa State and Iowa men’s basketball players Friday night. You get that many Michiganders and a ball in one room together, even when that room just happens to be 14,384-seat Hilton Coliseum in Ames, and trash will be talked. And especially be watching if Iowa State’s Monte Morris and Iowa’s […]
I heard people discussing Friday night’s Iowa-Iowa State men’s basketball game, which starts at 8:30 p.m. at Hilton Coliseum. Some were saying that this year’s basketball game is bigger than the most recent Iowa State-Iowa football game. Hmmm. It’s the first time since Dec. 19, 1987 that the rivals have met as rated opponents. That […]
The question that begs to be asked in the wake of the Iowa men’s basketball team’s dismantling of Fairleigh Dickinson on Monday is how did Rutgers and Seton Hall both lose to the lowly Knights? Iowa could play Fairleigh Dickinson 500 times and anything worse than a 500-0 record would be fairly ridiculous. Monday’s game […]
The Gator Bowl appears to be a tough sell to Nebraska fans. A season that fell short of expectations will end New Year’s Day in Jacksonville, Fla., with a game against No. 23 Georgia, the same team that beat the Cornhuskers a year ago in the Capital One Bowl. The matchup has elicited little more […]
High school quarterback Jack Beneventi announced his verbal commitment to the Iowa football team on Twitter about 7 p.m. Thursday. His decision came as no surprise to veteran recruiting analyst Tom Lemming. Lemming had a feeling that the 6-foot-6, 185-pound Beneventi was close to committing to Iowa on Wednesday night when Beneventi didn’t attend Lemming’s […]
CHICAGO — Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is the Big Ten’s Offensive Player of the Year for the second straight season. Miller has averaged 265 yards of total offense and accounted for 29 total touchdowns while leading Ohio State to a 12-0 record despite a knee injury early in the season. The Buckeyes will play […]
Iowa wrestler Tony Ramos talks about bouncing back from a rare defeat. The top-ranked 133-pounder’s first loss of the season to Edinboro’s A.J. Schopp.
Iowa overcame three straight match defeats Thursday night, including top-ranked 133-pounder Tony Ramos’ first loss of the season, to rally on the road past No. 15 Edinboro 22-19. All-American A.J. Schopp scored a first-period takedown and held off Ramos 3-2, NCAA finalist Mitchell Port pinned Iowa’s Josh Dziewa at 141 and No. 3 David Habat […]
Undefeated in nine matches, Iowa wrestler Josh Dziewa has been perfect on the mat this season. Perfection for a Hawkeye wrestler goes way beyond wins and losses, though. It also depends on how you wrestle each match and whether you follow the longstanding Iowa style of dictating the pace and constantly being on the attack. […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. – The bigger the matchup, the shorter Lisa Bluder’s pregame speeches get. The Iowa women’s basketball coach hasn’t needed to say much at all in preparation for this year’s annual showdown with Iowa State. Thursday night’s 44th game in the series ranks among the most anticipated. For just the second time, No. […]
Melissa Dixon and the Iowa women’s basketball team didn’t pick up exactly where they left off against Syracuse in Saturday’s game with Idaho State.
