IOWA CITY, Ia. – The same question seems to hit Mark Weisman every week. The Iowa running back has taken his lumps, prompting the media to ask: Will you play Saturday? “It doesn’t bother me,” Weisman said with a grin. “Injuries are part of football and they’re going to happen. “It’s something you have to […]

IOWA CITY, Ia. – It’s that time of year, when leaves rustle through the autumn wind and Big Ten football teams shuffle through the postseason pecking order. Of course, Iowa still needs to qualify. The Hawkeyes will take a 5-4 record into Saturday’s 11 a.m. date with Purdue, and a victory would make them bowl-eligible […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. — This Iowa football team is just good enough to break your heart. If Saturday’s 28-9 loss to Wisconsin didn’t prove it, a little fourth quarter math will. The Hawkeyes have been outscored 71-27 during the final 15 minutes this season — and that includes 33-0 the last four games. “Coach (Kirk Ferentz) […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. – Just when it seemed Northwestern would break Iowa’s football heart again, the Hawkeyes survived. Jake Rudock’s 8-yard touchdown pass to C.J. Fiedorowicz on third-and-7 lifted Iowa to a 17-10 win in overtime at Kinnick Stadium. “C.J., he’s a big dude (6-foot-7),” Rudock said of his winning toss. “We were able to get […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. – Anyone who dismisses Northwestern’s football team as more artsy than ornery better do some number crunching. The Wildcats don’t mind slogging it out in the trenches, and they’ve been noticeably belligerent in their last seven meetings with Iowa – allowing an average of 114.1 rushing yards a game and a 3.6 […]
Uh oh, look who’s coming to town. Just when the Iowa football team seems to be gaining a little traction, Northwestern is poised to pull another rug out from under the Hawkeyes. We’ve seen it so many times — the Wildcats have won six of the past eight meetings — that Saturday’s 11 a.m. game […]
Iowa running back Mark Weisman said Iowa’s inability to finish means mire work remains.
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 […]
IOWA CITY, Ia. Two things seem inevitable in the coming weeks. First, the Iowa football team will take a few more lumps. Second, fans will fume and speculate about coach Kirk Ferentz’s future. My advice: Take a sedative before kickoff, and take a long-term approach when it comes to a man who deserves a little […]
