IOWA CITY, Ia. – It’s time to alter our view of Iowa’s defense. College football is at the forefront of an offensive evolution – sometimes, years ahead of the NFL – so statistics that once reflected success no longer tell the whole story. And traditional strategies have undergone some tweaking. For example: Last year’s loss […]
This hardly is going out on a limb, but I’ll predict that the next recruiting coordinator for the Iowa football team uses initials for his first name, including the letter J.
Junior college forward Willie Atwood apparently needs more time to make one of the biggest decisions of his life.

In his five tournament matches, the senior 133-pounder never led with a minute remaining in […]
OKLAHOMA CITY — Tony Ramos pounded his chest, stomped his feet and glared across the mat Saturday night, waiting for Tyler Graff to blink. None of the Iowa senior’s pre-match bluster, though, was as bold as what came after the 133-pound NCAA wrestling final. Ramos held the Wisconsin senior on his back for a two-count […]

The Iowa softball team hit a season-high four home runs Wednesday, but the power surge wasn’t enough to push the Hawkeyes past host Iowa State.

Most of the buzz coming out of the open practice at West Des Moines was generated by the offense, especially freshman receiver Derrick Willies. I expect to see a motivated secondary. Remember, Kinnick Stadium gates open at 1 p.m., […]
The football schedule-makers cut Iowa some slack. Based on last year’s records and winning percentages, the Hawkeyes enter 2014 with the second-most-favorable slate of games in the Big Ten’s newly formed West Division, behind only Wisconsin. Perhaps, this is why Iowa was snubbed by ESPN/ABC and the Big Ten Network when it came to scheduling […]

IOWA CITY, Ia. – There is no quarterback controversy at Iowa, and that’s no surprise.

IOWA CITY, Ia. – There is no offseason when it comes to pride. And make no doubt about it, the Iowa secondary was humbled two weeks ago in West Des Moines. The Hawkeyes were holding an open practice at Valley Stadium, and a series of long pass plays left Maurice Fleming and his fellow defensive […]
