IOWA CITY, Ia. – Iowa offensive line coach Brian Ferentz caught people’s attention last week when he said there’s not a better offensive lineman in college football than senior tackle Brandon Scherff. Scherff took that high praise in stride Wednesday. “It’s nice, coming from him,” the 6-foot-5, 315-pounder from Denison said. “But you really can’t […]

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 […]
Iowa’s Samantha Logic received honorable mention recognition on the Associated Press All-American women’s basketball team.
The Iowa women’s basketball team missed its first 15 shots from 3-point range, and shot 33.3 percent overall in a 83-53 loss to third-seeded Louisville in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Tuesday in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Five years ago […]
