Hawkeye football still working on plans for WDM practice.

[ 0 ] March 29, 2013 |

Plans for an Iowa football practice to be held at West Des Moines’ Valley Stadium have hit a couple scheduling snafus.

At this point, officials are leaning toward the Hawkeyes coming on April 14, for a 2:30 p.m. practice – but nothing has been finalized.

Coach Kirk Ferentz said Wednesday having a practice outside Iowa City would be a positive outreach, but that some details still needed to be worked out.

“I know people on the western side of the state do a good job of getting over here during the fall,” Ferentz said. “We really appreciate that. Maybe we can reciprocate a little here and cut the drive down for people in the far west and give them a little bit of access.”

Officials had discussed have a practice in West Des Moines on April 20, but that could be a violation of NCAA guidelines. Meanwhile, a soccer tournament is planned for April 13.

Again, plans are still be worked out… Stay tuned.
