IOWA CITY, Ia. – Iowa’s football team had two bye weeks for the first time ever last season, and the timing was impeccable. “They were perfect,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said.

[ 0 ] August 21, 2014

Michigan’s Devin Gardner gives Iowa’s pink locker room a thumbs up, for the most part. But the fans at Kinnick Stadium? Well, that’s a downright annoying story. It’s not a stretch to believe the Wolverines’ senior quarterback doesn’t have warm and fuzzy memories of Kinnick, a place he’ll never have to play in again. A […]
