[ 0 ] December 31, 2013

TAMPA, Fla. – It was, by first-hand accounts, an emotional speech.

[ 0 ] October 22, 2013

IOWA CITY, Ia. – The Iowa defense once had a swagger. Now, it seems to be staggering. Ohio State never punted in last weekend’s 34-24 victory. Two weeks earlier, Michigan State held the ball for 37:13 en route to a 26-14 win. Up next is the always pesky Northwestern offense, which rushed for 349 yards […]
