Tate to Holloway: Mementos from an unforgettable victory

[ 0 ] December 16, 2013

Souvenirs from Iowa’s improbable, final-play win against LSU in the 2005 Capital One Bowl involved a missed opportunity and a mystery. Warren Holloway, who caught the 56-yard pass that capped Iowa’s 30-25 victory, said confusion about end-game protocol cost him a keepsake. “I thought we had to kick the extra point, or I would have […]

Tate to Holloway: Memories of epic play remain fresh in their minds

[ 0 ] December 16, 2013

There was the guy who jumped so quickly, forcefully and high that he punched his head through a sub-ceiling. Others admitted, sheepishly, that they dropped babies. One man explained that his grandfather let the years melt away, dancing on a table in a bar like an over-served college student. The stories go on and on […]

[ 0 ] December 14, 2013

AMES, Ia. Welcome to border-to-border relevance in men’s basketball, state of Iowa. Welcome to the promise of March. Welcome to the smell of sweat and blood and want and will. Welcome to what it feels like when nerve endings tingle and catching your breath is anything but guaranteed. Welcome to finishes like No. 17 Iowa […]

Miller: Late brouhaha adds spice to Iowa vs. ISU women’s game

[ 0 ] December 13, 2013

AMES, Ia. — No matter the rankings, lineups, position matchups or barometric pressure, Bill Fennelly owns a Story County stranglehold on rival Iowa. The Iowa State women’s basketball coach interlocks his hands firmly around the Hawkeyes and squeezes the win-loss life out of them. In Fennelly’s nine meetings against Iowa at Hilton Coliseum, the record […]

Bryce Miller: Are Hawkeyes’ linebackers the best in the country?

[ 0 ] December 10, 2013

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 […]

Bryce Miller: Is Pelini finished at Nebraska?

[ 0 ] November 29, 2013

LINCOLN, Neb. — It’s an odd feeling to watch someone melt in front of the world, as Bo Pelini did in the shadow of Nebraska’s first football loss to Iowa at Memorial Stadium since 1943. It’s a little surreal to see a person come unglued in hat-swinging, word-slinging ways alike. The No. 1 topic among ’Huskers […]

[ 0 ] November 29, 2013

LINCOLN, Neb. — Iowa dominated up front to stake itself to 14-3 lead against Nebraska in a bid for its first win against the Cornhuskers since 1981. A crowd of 91,260 watched the Hawkeyes position themselves for a Black Friday victory. A huge swing developed after a Nebraska penalty in the first quarter erased a long […]

Bryce Miller: Hitchens’ big play changes course of Iowa’s season

[ 0 ] November 23, 2013

IOWA CITY, Ia. It was one of those moments, one of those plays, that changes the course of a college football game. In the case of Iowa linebacker Anthony Hitchens, though, it altered more than that. When Hitchens spun off a block to chase down shifty Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner with a little more than […]

Hawkeyes, Uthoff impress in season opener

[ 0 ] November 9, 2013

IOWA CITY, Ia. — What the Iowa men’s basketball season opener lacked in drama, it made up for in division of on-court labor. The 10 players who trotted onto the court in the first half scored as Iowa used offensive balance from baseline to backcourt to overwhelm North Carolina-Wilmington 82-39 Friday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Iowa […]
