Good news for an Iowa football team that was battered two weeks ago in a loss to Michigan State: There are no significant changes on the depth chart released Monday by the school. Both Kevonte Martin-Manley (the leading receiver with 26 catches) and Mark Weisman (the leading rusher with 624 yards on 126 carries) are […]

One snapshot does not define a career. Keep that in mind when Iowa quarterback Jake Rudock throws his first pass Saturday against Missouri State at Kinnick Stadium.
IOWA CITY – Kirk Ferentz has been criticized for many things over the years. Having a short leash is not one of them. So, when the Iowa football coach tabbed Jake Rudock as his starting quarterback, it was probably for the long haul. “Clearly, by naming Jake, we felt like he was the furthest ahead, […]
The obvious became official Friday. Jake Rudock will be Iowa’s starting quarterback for the August 31 opener against Northern Illinois. “All three returning quarterbacks have competed well and improved in each phase of our preseason camp,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said on Iowa’s official athletic department Twitter account today. “We plan to start Jake in […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. – Jake Rudock has emerged as Iowa’s No. 1 quarterback, though coach Kirk Ferentz wants to let the race run out a little longer before officially naming his starter for the Aug. 31 opener against Northern Illinois at Kinnick Stadium.

Beathard is the mop-haired kid from Tennessee with a country music-writing dad who works with Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw and Eric Church, along with a grandfather who’s got seven Super […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. – Kirk Ferentz was Iowa’s offensive line coach in 1987 when he learned a valuable lesson he’ll lean on this fall. Dan McGwire, Tom Poholsky and Chuck Hartlieb were locked in a three-man battle for Iowa’s starting quarterback position. “The only thing I was sure of at that point was Hartlieb was […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. It’s hardly a bold statement to say the offense will have to significantly improve from last year if the Iowa football team expects to rebound from a 4-8 record. There are two major questions on offense, neither of which have answers, as football practice in Iowa City kicks off today: No. 1: […]
Take heart, Iowa football fans. You’re not alone. When it comes to the quarterback position, most Big Ten Conference teams are fumbling for answers. Ohio State’s Braxton Miller is a bona fide Heisman Trophy contender. Nebraska’s Taylor Martinez has accounted for 9,449 total yards the past three seasons. After that, things get a little dicey. […]
