IOWA CITY, Ia. – Iowa’s Reese Morgan switched sides of the football in 2012, moving from offensive line coach to defensive line coach. What he faced was, in a word, challenging.

Iowa defensive lineman Mike Hardy, a native of Appleton, WI talks with reporters about taking on the Wisconsin Badgers.
Mike Hardy is listed as the starting right defensive end on Iowa’s football depth chart released today, replacing Dominic Alvis.
