Iowa’s 10th-best football victory of the past 50 years

[ 0 ] August 20, 2014

This was the most hyped Iowa-Iowa State game ever. There is no close No. 2. The Cyclones came to Kinnick Stadium on Sept. 17, 1977, the first time the in-state rivals had met in 43 years. Adding fuel to the fire was a motivational ploy by Iowa State coach Earle Bruce. When his team returned […]

CHICAGO – The future of the Big Four Classic, held the past two years in Des Moines, may be in limbo.

The University of Texas decided recently to sell beer at home football games, becoming the third Big 12 school (Kansas State, West Virginia) with a “wet” stadium. We asked readers last week if Iowa State and Iowa should allow alcohol sales at athletic events: I go to a couple Iowa games a year. Glad they […]

Hawkeyes can’t hold late lead, fall 85-82 to Iowa State

[ 0 ] December 13, 2013

AMES, Ia. – For a while Friday night, Iowa State basketball coach Fred Hoiberg was speechless. How did your 17th-ranked team rally from yet another double-digit deficit before beating 23rd-ranked Iowa 85-82 in front of a sold out crowd at Hilton Coliseum? “In all honesty, I have no idea how we won that game,” Hoiberg said, […]

Is Friday’s Cy-Hawk basketball bigger than 2013 Cy-Hawk football?

[ 0 ] December 10, 2013

I heard people discussing Friday night’s Iowa-Iowa State men’s basketball game, which starts at 8:30 p.m. at Hilton Coliseum. Some were saying that this year’s basketball game is bigger than the most recent Iowa State-Iowa football game. Hmmm. It’s the first time since Dec. 19, 1987 that the rivals have met as rated opponents. That […]

Andrew Logue: Hawkeyes lacking killer instinct

[ 0 ] September 15, 2013

We’re starting to notice a couple of things with this year’s Iowa football team. The Hawkeyes have shown plenty of moxie the past three weeks, but not much of a killer instinct. We’ve seen them bob and weave. We’ve seen them trade jabs. We’re still not sure if they can land a haymaker. “That’s something […]
